The songs on this CD are all over the place. I loved a couple, hated a couple and the rest were neither here nor there. Just no flow in my opinion.

"For those of us who had heard much about Nelly but hadnt actually heard her music or her wonderful voice, her recent appearance on Jay Leno's show singing her beautiful first single 'Im like a bird' was introduction enough.Nelly's music is arresting. From the opening numbers to the closing song, what strikes the listener most is that each of the songs could be a potential hit single, something last witnessed only on Alanis Morissette's 'Jagged little pill'. Nelly sounds nothing like Alanis, but what she manages is nothing short of extraordinary.'Whoa, Nelly' seems like a careless album title, but its not. Once you listen to the album, you know that it captures the singer's spirit and her vibrancy perfectly. It also indicates that this is a fun album - no soulful dirges a la Sarah McLachlan and no pointless poetry like Jewel's. This album is one of those that will set a trend - Nelly has bridged the gap between pop music and folk culture, Spanish dance and tribal chants. While there are traces of Lauryn Hill influenced hip-hop, the album remains fresh and original throughout, and evokes Joni Mitchell in patches. One thing is certain : 'Whoa, Nelly' brings to the fore a beautiful and remarkably gifted new songstress, and I can't wait for more of her work. In the meantime, you sure will be listening to this one for much of this year. Yes, its that addictive.Kabir Ahamed."

"Nelly Furtado will no doubt be one of the most talked about new artists of the coming year. I believe that this Cd is one of the best debut albums by a female artist, it's comparible to Fiona Apple's Tidal. To descibe Nelly's singing voice I would say that she sounds like Gwynn Stefani.There is no filler on this album only great songs. This is one of the few Cd's that I could put on and listen to straight through. Here is my opinion of each song.1. Hey Man!- Great song very reminicent of Joni Mitchel. Very pretty uses a great string arangement.2.......On the radio- Great song, sounds like it could have been written for TLC.3. Baby Girl- Kind of wierd, has a sort of heavy metal thing at the begining, but still a good song.4. Legend- Clearly the album's best track, filled with brilliant lyrics and beautifully produced.5. I'm Like a bird- The first single, I saw the video and knew I had to have her album, a really great song.6. Turn Of the light- An okay song seems a bit out of place on this album.7.Trynna Finda Way- Another of the best on the album, has a cool country/rock thing going on, very cool. My second favorite song on the album.8. Party- Nelly gets down with her bad self! A cool dance song, has a very cool bossanova beat to it.9. Well, Well- Very cool, great lyrics very insightful. Nelly sings " Looks liks I only love god when the sun shines my way." Great song.10. My Love Grows Deeper Part 1- A good song, but dosen't really stand out on this great album.11. I Will Make You Cry- Another really good song.12. Scared Of You- A Really pretty slow song sung partly in Portugese. Another stand out track.Nelly is one of those artists you know will only get better with time. I can't wait to hear what she'll sound like in 10 years, because if she keeps making albums like this she'll be around for that long or longer."
