In My Mind [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Brett Johnson
Pharrell Williams, one half the prolific Neptunes production team, may have missed an opportunity to really cash in on the momentum of his hit collaborations with Gwen Stefani on "Hollaback Girl" from her debut, Love Angel Music Baby, and "Can I Have It Like That." Coming nearly a year after the buzz of those hits has cooled, In My Mind shows Williams can still produce great '80s-synth driven, falsetto-heavy R&B and charming, if awkwardly delivered, hip-hop flows. Partnered with Kanye West on the breezy "Number One," Pharrell showers a special boo with earnest come-ons. It's Williams's most reliable shtick and main preoccupation: playing the well-funded, sensitive ...

Pharrell Williams, one half the prolific Neptunes production team, may have missed an opportunity to really cash in on the momentum of his hit collaborations with Gwen Stefani on "Hollaback Girl" from her debut, Love Angel Music Baby, and "Can I Have It Like That." Coming nearly a year after the buzz of those hits has cooled, In My Mind shows Williams can still produce great '80s-synth driven, falsetto-heavy R&B and charming, if awkwardly delivered, hip-hop flows. Partnered with Kanye West on the breezy "Number One," Pharrell showers a special boo with earnest come-ons. It's Williams's most reliable shtick and main preoccupation: playing the well-funded, sensitive ladies man. "I'm part Howard Hughes, part horny, part holy," he raps on the up-tempo "How Does It Feel?" Throughout the disc, there's no shortage of Williams referencing his Range Rovers, frequent exotic vacations, and blinged-out watches. "I know I got jewels like I'm the pharaoh of the ghetto," he boasts over the jangly rhythms of "Raspy Sh**." But Williams finds his groove as the playboy with a heart, especially in contrast to his big-rolling partners, including Snoop Dogg ("That Girl"), Nelly ("Baby"), and Jay-Z ("Young Girl"). At times, his lyrics sound like they came straight from an R. Kelly manual. "Take it off now girl / I can help you slide them panties off," he sings over the slinky slow jam "Take It Off." But, salacious leanings notwithstanding, the track is an example of Williams's ultimate strength: balancing frothy, pop sensibility and lush orchestration, Pharrell has enough production smarts and offbeat personality to make In My Mind well worth the wait.
All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
The idea of an all-Pharrell album is natural and unnatural in roughly equal measure. Half of the extremely successful Neptunes production team, as well as a collaborator who has been deployed for countless guest verses and vocal hooks, Pharrell has been a regular presence on radio stations and video programs for several years. As of late 2005, however, there was only one single -- the summer 2003 smash "Frontin'" -- the man could call his own. You'd think he would've been on his second or third solo album by the time the decent In My Mind was released in July 2006, but Pharrell has always considered himself a producer/songwriter first, a background figure who isn't a singer -- and, for that matter, he's not much more than a competent MC. If he weren't so crafty at his primary calling, he'd be relying almost exclusively on his charm and sex appeal. Perhaps this partly explains why In My Mind took so long to materialize. In interviews, Pharrell seemed more exhausted than excited and indicated that the album was too much of a compromised process. While the album never sounds as if less than 100 percent was put into it, a large chunk of the material is second rate compared to his past highlights ("Frontin'" included), and it's no help that the tracks tapped as singles are some of the weakest moments (as was the case with the first version of the first N.E.R.D. album). Produced entirely by Pharrell, with guest appearances from several of the high-profile artists (Jay-Z, Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, Gwen Stefani, Nelly, Slim Thug, Clipse's Pusha T) whose careers have been boosted by the Neptunes, the album is divided in half between R&B and rap, at least if you go by Pharrell's singing-to-rapping ratio. Those who have been wanting to hear more of Pharrell's softer side will be pleased with the direction the album takes during the latter half, where his usual cocky demeanor is tempered by some loverman vulnerability. Just the fact that the album contains over an hour of Pharrell will be enough to attract scores of his fans, and it's not like any part of it is flat-out poor, but it's a shame it didn't turn out better. [The album has three different covers. The content does not vary.]
Los Angeles Times - Richard Cromelin
1/2 The album's high points have the invention and urgency, if not quite the eloquence, of another producer-turned-artist, Kanye West.... This one is too hot to drop.

    C'mon Pharrell, that's all that's on ur mind?

    I expected a lot from this lp, really anticipated it despite three lackluster tracks as singles before it even came out. Hell, I should have known after the incredibly stereotypical Number 1 flick....and now all these wack lyrics and heard-once-too-often beats. Well, let's wait for a new Nerd lp, or a Clipse longplayer...

    Soooo…This is why you took so long P

    ‘In My Mind’ is not a bad album at all. I'm also a fan of The Neptunes work and N.E.R.D. songs and was anxiously awaiting for this album. I know there are a lot of people (even dedicated fans) who are sort of hating on this album and the have there reasons to due to their high expectation or later on founding out that Pharrell's solo skills wasn’t as strong as they hope for. Pharrell does make an attempt to make every song sound different, which I appreciate, it's as if he takes on a different persona for each track. Once you hear it at first you’ll be like WTF but then once you give it a second or third try you start to get a feel for this album. I notice that a great deal of musical artist has gotten into the 80’s vibe from the past few years. It’s sort of like they all decided to text message each other one day and agreed to bring it back old school. For whatever the reason maybe it’s all good because I’m feeling the vibe right alongside with them. After hearing this album numerously I still feel Pharrell can produce great '80s-synth driven R&B lyrics/swaggers and some awkwardly delivered hip-hop flows. Pharrell obviously doesn’t sound like any other artist and may not be the best lyricist but he continues to stand out on his own. There are a number of tracks on here that I like and there were some that had to grow on me. The best tracks (in no particular order) stood out to me are: “Young girl/ I Really Like You,”- the production in this is hot. “Take It Off (Dim the Lights)” – great song to lay back on and the lyric is cute but cheesy at the same time. “Baby" with Nelly (can’t stand him)- love the beat and the song because it reminds me of "Push it" by Salt n Peppa is really good. “Show You How to Hustle,”- is also great everything about this track comes together rather nicely I can’t get enough of it. “Angel,”- love the beat and the song. “Our Father,”- (song about Jesus) - is good. I was shock with this one because I never thought he got it in him to make a song like this, something or someone humble him enough to do it though. “Number One,” with Kayne (cocky) West- is nice but I heard it too many times. Finally, “You can do it too,” is good because it sounds like it came from N.E.R.D album (Provider). Other than that, ‘In my Mind’ is a good album. Pharrell is able to maintains his Neptunes production here and it shines but he does has to figure out how to solidify his music to be a steady individual act. I still recommend this to all his fans and for those who are curious enough to grab hold of it should give it a try.

    Great Debut

    This CD has great beats, great song content, and now we know what's in Pharrell's mind. The record of the year like he said. Hip Hop really needed this one. You can play the CD all the way without skipping any tracks. Its a must buy!!!
