SINGLES AND ALBUMS REVIEWS; Nelly Feat Justin Timberlake Work It ****

Nelly feat Justin Timberlake

Work It ****

WHEN he's not groping Kylie's bum or stealing Wacko Jacko's musical mantle, Justin Timberlake is offering his services to his music chums.

Having supplied the guest vocals on NSYNC's crossover track Girlfriend, Nelly has called in the same favour.

As you would expect, Work It is an ultra-catchy slice of pop-tinted hip- hop and Justin's cracking vocal style adds to the unique flavour of a quite phenomenal track.

An inspired partnership, Nelly and Justin are the music world's equivalent of Starsky & Hutch, but without the dodgy knitwear.

Darius

Incredible (What I Meant To Say) ****

A BIT like the man himself, Incredible takes a little bit of getting used to. Something of a grower, it is one of those tunes which doesn't instantly bite you on the bum, but once it's got its teeth into you, there's no way you'll forget it easily. Incredible is the latest in a line of fine material which showcases Darius' skills as a songwriter and performer.

Produced by LA-based trio The Matrix, there is a definite American flavour to the track which would suggest that the boy wonder has set his sights on the international picture. And if anyone can realise their dreams, it's Darius.

Mock Turtles

Can You Dig It? ****

WHEN this track was first released, jeans ads had the power to make or break a track. Now it's mobile phones.

An early Nineties anthem, The Mock Turtles' indie-rock classic looks set to score chart success the second time around, thanks to the Vodafone adverts.

Proof, if nothing else, that you can't keep a good tune down.

Jennifer Love Hewitt

Can I Go Now? ***

INTERNATIONAL superstar, stunning good looks and endless talent - there's every reason to loathe and despise Jennifer Love Hewitt, but where's the fun in that?

With the movie world at her tiny feet, she has decided to focus her attentions on making beautiful music and, somewhat surprisingly, she's really rather good at it.

She might have got up close and personal with Latino lovely Enrique in the video for his goosebump ballad Hero, but Jennifer's sound has an altogether rockier edge.

Hardly surprising really when you consider that Jennifer enlisted the songwriting talents of Meredith Brooks. Most impressive.

Ron Sexsmith feat Chris Martin

Gold In Them Hills ****

THERE are benefits of living out of a suitcase and touring the world. Just ask Canadian singer-songwriter Ron Sexsmith.

Currently on tour in the US supporting Brit boys Coldplay, Ron has persuaded their lead singer to collaborate on his latest recording. The result? A stripped-bare acoustic tune which is reassuringly subtle and optimistic.

Melody takes priority in Gold In Them Hills and such is its delicate appeal it is best enjoyed by those music lovers who aren't swayed by hype or over-production. …
