4.0 out of 5 stars No other songstress can come close to this vixen 3 July 2007
Format:Audio CD
Kelis's fourth album maintains and still stands apart from other female R&B-pop sirens. I'm extremely happy with this album. I have been a true Kelis fan since the release of `Wanderland.' Kelis is a confident woman who brings a non traditional, progressive sound to music. She reveals how truly talented she is. There are so many beautifully constructed and delivered songs in this album. The styles on this album go from R&B, rock, hip hop, '80s new wave, classic soul, and rap. She even gives us a great mixture of ballads and club tracks. There is no shortage of music in here.

Once I first heard the intro I mistook it for a track because it was so catchy. The start out single `Bossy' (Featuring Too $hort) is great because it lets her fans and new listeners know who she is. `"Aww S***" ,' `I Don't,' `Handful,' `Appreciate Me,' and the hidden track called "F*** Them B****es" are some of Kelis's trademark clearly showing us what a tough person she is and what she represents- got to love it. She brings back the sexuality on `Whats That Right There,' and `Blindfold Me,' which is beautiful and the lyrics are nice. `Till the Wheels Fall Off Think,' `Living Proof,' bring in some great melody's, class, and funky beats that you'll won't resist. `Like you,' is one of my personal favorites because of the beats and the opera chorus held in the background it's so tight!

`Weekend (Featuring Wil.i.am)' is very infectious, uplifting beat with some fun lyrics. `Lil Star' is another personal favorite because it has an old school vibe and Cee Lo and Kelis's voice works so well together. In `Trilogy,' Kelis brings us to her world which is sweet because you would think the Neptunes had there hands on this track. `Goodbyes' is nice soft melody accompany by some great lyrics.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of a kind 6 Dec 2006
By Cosmic
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album shows that despite this being Kelis's fourth album, she is just as innovative and multi-dimensional as when she first came out with Kaleidoscope.

Every track on here is good (although I do have a couple of favourites e.g Trilogy, Lil Star, Goodbyes to name a couple) so you won't be disappointed.

Overall, she's one of my fave artists - good singer, great songs, love her style.....the list goes on. In my opinion, there isn't anyone around right now who is anything like her.

So if you haven't got this CD or any of her other previous ones and you like RnB then I suggest you go buy them! Right now!!

Unless of course if you prefer the same old formularised, predictable RnB that most people have come to expect nowadays.....

4.0 out of 5 stars As Good As Tasty? Undecided 10 Sep 2006
Format:Audio CD
This album kept me thoroughly entertained throughout its course of 18 tracks which surprised me as I didn't have to skip once. My only minor grumble is that quite a few of the songs have chorus's that are just repetition of the same line over and over, which is not real songwriting to me. Tracks guilty of this crime are 'Til The Wheels Fall Off', 'What's That Right There' and 'Appreciate Me' in particular (despite the latter being one of my favourite tracks).

The best tracks are 'Trilogy' which has a fab chorus showing Kelis has a great voice, and 'Circus' which sees her rap her way through a host of verses. Others to watch out for are the self-assured single 'Bossy', 'Blindfold Me' (maybe a little to much information!) and 'Like You' which samples an opera voice as an instrument which I thought was very interesting and fresh. `Lil Star' is a cute little number and in `Handful' she admits to being overwhelming, and, well, a handful!

Kelis has clearly experimented on this album and allowed her creativity to flow. I am still yet to decide whether it's better than 'Tasty' but it's still a corker of an album. What it does lack is that one special song that will hook in the music buying public, like 'Milkshake' did. Kelis has also taken a gamble by dropping 'The Neptunes' as her producers, which is slightly puzzling as they seem to be going from strength to strength. Kelis has taken control and the results are very promising, and pleasing to hear.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Queen Is Back! 25 Aug 2006
Format:Audio CD
Kelis is back. Need I say more? And all I can say was it was well worth the wait. The album drops her signature beat but also has new material that just can't dissapoint. This is the first album that the Neptunes don't produce any of the songs, and as much as I love their work, I've got to say this is her best album yet. For a person who hates Intro's to albums as they always seem to dissapoint me, Kelis seems to be the light at the end of the tunnel! Push that aside, and you've got heavy tracks from the very start to the very end. I would strongly recommend this to all Kelis fans, but especially to those who are not, who want to find out what Miss Rogers-Jones is all about.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as her first three.
I thought her first three albums were very good and very creative. But this was a big let down. Firstly she had changed her hair, I realy liked the big afro curly hair she used to... Read more

People think of Kelis as that "mad chick who screams on tunes," but that is so far from what she has progressed to be. Her take on "URBAN" music is very unique and uterly creative. Read more

The title of this album suits the production quite well! The music is R&B, soulful, and definitely funky. If anything, Kelis proves she has made her mark - "Kelis was here". Read more
