  • Summary: Whoa, Nelly indeed. Timbaland produced the bulk of the singer's dancier, poppier third album, and even sings on one track.

Top Track

Say It Right
In the day, in the night Say it right, say it all You either got it or you don't You either stand or you fall When your will is broken When it slips... See the rest of the song lyrics

  1. She’s found the perfect collaborator to match her voracious appetite for all things pop.
  2. The most relevant reference points for "Loose" are Gwen Stefani's "Love Angel Music Baby" and Justin Timberlake's "Justified" - producer-defined albums that reinvented their performers as stand-alone solo artists with a wide, hip remit.
  3. This is glorious, 21st-century Technicolor po.
  4. Furtado's style-hopping nature makes her a never less-than-interesting artist, but it doesn't work to her advantage when it occurs within the same record, and that's what ultimately keeps Loose from cohering as a singularly great pop album the way her prior efforts did.
  5. Unfortunately, the result is like a blind date where the chemistry doesn't quite click.
  6. The strangest thing about Loose isn't its irregularity, but the simple fact that this doesn't sound like Nelly Furtado at all.
  7. Unfortunately, Furtado doesn't have the rhyming skills, vocal chops or attitude to pull off any one of her new personae.
