I can’t tell if Nelly Furtado is some horrid Jennifer Lopez wanna-be or an almost Patti Rothberg. Anyone listening to the first song on her album might say the latter, but past that all bets are off. The disc honestly isn’t too good, but i think that’s mostly the fault of her producers. He writing is fine and could develop into something great, and her voice is incredible. Oh well… her original influences aren’t exactly singer-songwriters, but as she grew older she picked up some great artists like Portishead, who are a personal favourite. Nelly does achieve some great pop moments on the disc, but they’re too muddled with stylistic confusion on the other tracks to make a difference. I look forward to a second effort.
