N.E.R.D. – Nothing
(Sorry about the lack of posting…..just too busy lately.)
It’s really typical N.E.R.D. When I say “typical”, what I mean is different what anything that’s out – something they consistently succeed in creating…to vary results, but you have to love the effort. This, again, is more of the same. They use a lot of “same but newish” sounds for the trio: 60’s psyche rock, 70’s funk, songs with horn sections, etc. Themes include: partying, sex, sexual acts, encouraged bisexual activities, those same bisexual chicks doing blow and dancing, semi-political statements, sex while waxing philosophical about politics, etc. At minimum, it’s an interesting album. At maximum, it’s fun and entertaining – which it happens to be, for the most part – which is the point. I’ve really enjoyed this album for the last couple days.
It’s not a perfect record….but I definitely recommend it as a good people-gathering sort of an album. Pretty dope.
