I Can't Say That I'm Not Lost And At Fault. I Can't Say That I Don't Love The Light And The Dark.
I've been so ensconced in melancholy lately that I needed a good booty shaking. Enter Nelly Furtado and her new album Loose. Masterminded by the most underrated beatmaker next to the late J Dilla, Timbaland really lets his love jones for the 80's take full control on this album. Mixing his trademark stutter beats with synth lines that leave the listener with freezer burn, Timbaland deftly coaxes Nelly out of her sophomore album's deep lull and introduces the world to her inner vixen. Recorded in Miami, the sultry vibe is quite evident in Furtado's delivery. Regaining the ground she lost after her phenomenal debut, Loose is a perfect summertime album. For your listening (dis)pleasure:
