Released in time for the holiday season of 2007, Loose: The Concert is just what the billing describes: a package that documents Nelly Furtado's tour supporting her hit 2006 album Loose.The set contains 11 highlights from her thoroughly professional and crowd-pleasing show, notable only for how high-pitched and high-strung Furtado sounds on "Promiscuous" here (she sounds unintentionally like a female Ad-Rock). Apart from that, there's not much of a surprise here, which may indeed satisfy fans who just want a souvenir of the tour, nothing more, nothing less. Regrettably, her cover of Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy" -- the only other song from 2006 as inescapable as Nelly's own "Promiscuous" -- is one of the tunes available only on the DVD that was simultaneously released, and it would have been a nice way to liven up the CD.
