Boomkat Product Review:
Beset by a shed load of set backs and release bumps, Pharrell's full length debut LP is with us now and sees him choosing a sound that's somewhere between N.E.R.D's early electronic releases and their later (and far less successful) funk business. Given the heaving scope of his little-black-book it comes as little surprise to see a guestlist as long as your arm on this album - with the likes of Kanye West, Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg, Gwen Stefani, Slim Thug and Nelly all sticking their head round the door. Kicking off with the single 'Can I Have It Like That' (weren't you taught punctuation Mr. Williams?!), Pharrell does what Pharrell does best; chiefly making what sounds like two utterly different songs come together in perfect harmony. On the one side is Stefani giving it the usual trash/innocence routine, whilst Pharrell gets chatty over some bare drums and a seething electronic bass line that builds nicely into the Sly & Family Stone-esque crescendos. From here we're pushed head-long into 'How Does It Feel', wherein a vial of G-Funk is given a fierce overhaul by an electronic behemoth, before 'Raspy Shit' arrives sounding like a prime-time Kanye production. Elsewhere, 'Number One' drafts in Mr. West for some gloriously sun-burnt hip-hop, 'Angel' is N.E.R.D. by numbers (and all the better for it too), whilst 'Baby' sounds how Michael Jackson should. Skater boy!
