    Excatly!! I like their production on the hot singles they do (the was
    a review of them in an Audiophile mag I read
    ( you'll have to pay to read it), and I then
    picked up the N*E*R*D album and really disliked it. As T said it's
    much too rock to be interesting. Rather lame beats and vocals.
