N.E.R.D. In Search Of... on Colored 2LP
First Pressing on Colored Vinyl
In Search Of... is the critically-acclaimed and highly-influential 2001 debut album from Pharrell Williams, Chad Hugo and Shae Haley – collectively, the three musicians-slash-producers-slash-singers-slash-songwriters known as N.E.R.D. Under the Neptunes production moniker, Williams and Hugo changed the sound of pop music with their sophisticated minimalism, unleashing a limitless number of hits for artists like Jay-Z, Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Snoop Dogg, The Clipse and Gwen Stefani among others.
N.E.R.D. was never meant to be a one-off side-project. The trio formed the band out of a genuine thirst for creative exploration – a hybrid of rock 'n' roll, hip-hop, R&B, country, blues, and sci-fi. It was intended to be a manifestation of “folk” music, whoever and wherever those folk might be. It culminated in the 2001 release of In Search Of..., a thoroughly un-self-conscious exploration of the human condition that, over a decade later, remains a standard-bearing, risk-taking template for any other artist searching beyond themselves.
