Nelly Furtado album review

The Spirit Indestructible

3/5
Back on chart form after 2009’s Spanish digresión, Mi Plan, Nelly Furtado returns with the synth-driven massive pop record you were expecting after 2006’s Loose – or almost does, anyway. Darkchild ably fills in for Timbaland as producer, drawing in some tinny snares and crisp handclaps to contemporise Furtado’s comeback. It more or less works, until a slowing of pace in the album’s latter half leads to the cringeworthy ‘Believers (Arab Spring)’. How it fits in with her playing a concert for the Gaddafis in 2007 we’re not quite sure.
