Album Review: N.E.R.D – No One Ever Really Dies

N.E.R.D.’s main connection to actual nerds is that they promised parties they couldn’t deliver. In 2002, the rocked-up redo of their Europe-only debut In Search Of… amassed rave reviews just as the guard was changing in rap criticism towards a less rockist focal point. Today, the album’s hardly looked upon with rose-tinted lenses, despite a preponderance of horny rap-rock bangers that actually seemed to enjoy themselves among the rampant objectification. Then again, Pharrell Williams has always been good at enjoying himself, especially with this project.
