Considering that N*E*R*D is the funk-rock incarnation of the Neptunes production duo responsible for adding a tweak of excitement to commercial hiphop (Jay-Z, ODB, Mystikal), their In Search Of debut is perplexingly conventional — and that’s after recutting the whole thing in an attempt to liven it up. With nothing to lose, they could’ve tried to come up with something outrageously creative and failed with honour. Instead, they foolishly played it safe in ways that suggest they weren’t kidding when they called themselves N*E*R*D and cited Steely Dan and America as inspirations.
