Harlem-bred vocalist Kelis left her parents’ home at 16, but continued her education at the famed Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts. 2 years later with the support of producers The Neptunes, she landed herself a recording deal. In mid-1999, Kelis was singing alongside rap trouble- maker Ol’ Dirty Bastard on his cut “Got Your ... Read more in Amazon's Kelis Store

Product Description

First heard trying to calm Ol' Dirty Bastard on "Got Your Money" from his Nigga Please, 20-year-old Kelis now appears with her own album. Multi-threat production team the Neptunes turn the aptly named Kaleidoscope into the same kind of playground they provided for ODB, and even singing the masterminds' songs, Kelis quickly establishes it as her own hip-hop-wise R&B turf. Though it quickly gained attention for the ranting "Caught Out There" ("I hate you so much right now!"), the disc proves this unique singer equally as convincing in other complex moods, such as a comic take on romantic pain ("Game Show") and an offbeat memory of childhood ("Roller Rink"). More playful than Mary J. Blige, Kelis makes as strong a first impression--and, like Blige, shows every sign of sticking around. --Rickey Wright

4.0 out of 5 stars This Is Good Stuff 27 July 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
'Caught Out There' may be the song that launched Kelis as a star, but it is far from being the standout track of this very promising debut release. The sexy groove of 'Good Stuff' and the quirky delight that is 'Roller Rink' both outdo the monster hit of earlier this year. But, for sure, the greatest song on the album is 'Mars', which will inevitably become a future R&B classic. Elsewhere on the album, Kelis's talents are not quite so sensational. 'Get Along With You', 'In The Morning' and 'Mafia' are good songs, but not in the league of the aforementioned. Overall, this is an impressive album that is certainly worth buying. There is clearly much more to Kelis than the gimmicky rant of 'Caught Out There'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this album 12 Dec 2000
Format:Audio CD
this is perhaps the best album i have bought this year. Every track on here is good. There are a few dodgy moments but Game show is a track which can only be taken in good humour. Mafia is one of the standout tracks of the album, it profiles kelis' vocal talents very well. mars is another of those brilliant tracks and for some reason my cd has become scratched on that particular track so i am actually willing to go and buy another copy because it is missing one track. Ghetto children is one of the more upbeat tracks on the album and if carried very well by the male vocalist who sings with kelis. all of the tracks on this album are great I reccomend all music fans to buy this.

4.0 out of 5 stars God dammit, just buy it! 10 Jun 2000
Format:Audio CD
I kinda bought this album on a whim. I liked Caught Out There a lot, but that wasn't enuff to swing my decision. I'd heard Good Stuff (her second single) on the radio and fell in love with I bought it, and I'm so very glad I did...
This is a very mixed bag. On Good Stuff and Mafia, Kelis confirms that she is a babe with a voice (they're commonplace, you know...) but she also has brains.
There is the odd track that goes wide of the mark , the absurd Game Show springs to mind. At the very end, it sounds like there is an army of Smurfs getting strangled singing Game Show over and over...that, however, is the only remotely dodgy bit, but being a track right in the middle, it drives my decision down to 4 stars. But I do agree, anyone who cannot appreciate Mafia must be brain dead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best soul album in years 4 Mar 2001
By H. meiehofer VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This is a truly fantastic CD. I see that other reviews have singled out the odd track as rubbish or said that the album as a whole has some dodgy bits. This is just not true! Kelis and her production team are major talents and I only hope that this 20 year old can live up to this initial promise and that Kaleidoscope does not turn out to be some kind of aural "Citizen Kane"

5.0 out of 5 stars well, what can I say??? 4 Mar 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
When i first heard "caught out there" i wasn't sure but then "god stuff" came along which really gave me the boost to buy the album. and it wasn't a dissapointment. The neptunes are a over every track, adding so much veriety to the project. this album is a masterpiece. Her second album is now in the making, and she has a lot to live up to. I think you'll agree if you buy it. She really is a breath of fresh air.

4.0 out of 5 stars Extremely Funky 4 July 2000
Format:Audio CD
"Caught Out There" was a totally fab song, and when I heard "Good Stuff" Ihad to have it. The whole ensemble is generally brilliant, and the woman has a very beautiful voice. The first songs are probably the best, but "In the Morning" and "Wouldn't you agree" are a very nice couple to wind down with at the end of the CD. I say buy it now, but not if you are averse to strong language (especially in "Roller rink").

4.0 out of 5 stars Kaleidoscope - aptly named 31 Mar 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is quite simply an amazing album and goes to show there is much more to this young star, than the glorious ranting on the female anthem 'Caught Out There'! Simplistic but beautiful vocal presentation and retro production sounds, keeps this album on rotation in my portable CD player!Buy this album - without hesitation!
