|I'm Like A Bird|
|You're beautiful and that's for sure You'll never ever fade Your lovely, but it's not for sure And I won't ever change And though my love is...||See the rest of the song lyrics|
Weaving fragmented elements of hip-hop, folk, and bossa nova, Whoa, Nelly! is one wildly entertaining multicultural jam.... Though her lyrics are a lot smarter than today's average pop offering, they do wear the more common clichés of hippy-chick wisdom a little too proudly at times. But that's OK: If she's got to get her cosmic ya-yas out, the first record's the place to do it.
Furtado occasionally comes off sounding like a modern day Billie Holiday with her crisp, yet subtle vibrato filtering through a slick production that holds the record together. But while one can easily detect a smattering of her worldly intentions, it's the big one eyed pop monster that seems to win out in almost every instance.

EllyNov 8, 2009One of the best albums of the new millennium. A few months after buying it I fought the special edition for almost thirty bucks and it was One of the best albums of the new millennium. A few months after buying it I fought the special edition for almost thirty bucks and it was worth every penny. This is one of those rare albums that i keep listening to even though I've fad it for years and years. She's a super talented songwriter, and has a unique writing style which is stream-of-consciousness so she is always singing in unexpected ways and there a lot of over- lapping vocals . I love her voice which is so unique, but throughout the cd she plays around with her voice going from nasally (which instead of making her sound like an inexperienced singer whose voice has not yet matured, sounds playful) to using her head voice quite expertly ( #&!* On The Radio) and singing those bigger notes (Hey Man!,) and even rapping or flowing (I will make You Cry, Legend, Trynna Find A Way) and she manages to sound like completely different when she harmonizes and sings the backup vocals. I love how she mixes musical genres and makes it work without sounding like it was too overdone. I recommend it if you like adventurous music, pop that is mixed with bossa nova, R&B, Trip-hop, samba, fado, folk, great lyrics. Get out there and get it! It's not too late!!… Expand
