From Page 5A
with a sing-a-long hook. Though
his fans will yearn for the rap-
per of yore, the soaring track has
Of course, Nelly's status as
an emerging pop star requires a
little star power. Unfortunately,
the irrelevant Puff Daddy (or is
it P-Diddy these days?) steps up
and remains a fixture through-
out 5.0. On the aptly named "1000
Stacks," Diddy raps about expen-
sive champagne (or Lamborghinis
or something) and making money
while Notorious B.I.G. adds some
credibility from beyond the grave
to back up Nelly and Diddy's tag-
team. But it's doubtful Biggie
would want his sample attached
to such a boring track. Nelly
screams his verses at listeners
on this desperate attempt at club
fare, but nothing he's yelling is
all that innovative or worth the
stress of traumatizing your ear
The album closes with an awk-
ward piano ballad that has Nelly
attempting to pass off his whin-
ing as singing. "Nothing Without
Her" sounds like a parody, com-
plete with Nelly practically sob-
bing his lyrics like "When I look
deep in her eyes /I see there's love
inside." And though he spends
most of the album worshiping
money, Nelly disingenuously
claims, "See all the money in this
world don't mean / Nothing with-
out her," as a sentimental guitar
strains in the background. Now,
generally Auto-Tune shouldn't be
advocated, but Nelly's voice might
have benefited from some tweak-
ing on this track.
Nelly's latest is populated by
filler and marred by the rapper's
disappointing delivery of subpar
rhymes. Fans will pine for the
man of "Country Grammar" fame
who once rapped, "Forget the
fame and the glamour." Now all
Nelly raps about is fame and glam-
our. Though his last album Brass
Knuckles failed to sell as many
copies as his previous work, Nelly
has said he doesn't consider 5.0
to be a comeback. Which is good,
because it definitely isn't.

"Brotherhood" isn't a mediocre
game in the slightest. What will
keep it from joining the elite sta-
