4.0 out of 5 stars Mmmmm.. Tasty Stuff..., 9 Sept. 2004
By 
This review is from: Kelis - Tasty (Audio CD)
Before listening to this album, having previously heard Kelis' radio offerings from her first two albums (:"Caught Out There", "Get Along With You" etc.) I simply assumed that "Tasty" would be dominated by more of The Neptunes beats and rhythyms.
Unexpectedly I was wrong, as although Chad and Pharrel provide the beats for five of the fourteen tracks, the variety in production here definitely provides more of an insight into the obvious talent that Kelis has.
The success and hype generated and enjoyed by the first single "Milkshake" (A Neptune's simple, but funky bass-driven rhythm, with Kelis commandingly taunting that her Milkshake is better than yours...".) was to set a high standard for the rest of the album to follow.
Luckily it meets these expectations, as the second single, "Trick Me" a brilliant Hip Hop/Ska inflicted track almost effortlessly illustrates Kelis' ability to switch styles.
The strongest contender for a possible third single has to be the high paced, Hip Pop jewel which is "Millionaire" in which Out Kast's Andre 3000 makes an exceptional duet partnership with Kelis, leaving you wishing that there were more. Other standout tracks include the tempo changing, Hip Rock track, "Keep It Down", the very emotionally charged lover's anthem, "In Public" "Find Yourself A Bit Of Green".. Need I say more?). The relaxed beat of "Flash Back" definitely is one for the summer, which would explain its reappearance after being one of the standout tracks on her second album, "Wanderland". It is also the Modern Jazz/Motown inflicted tracks such "Sugar Honey Iced Tea", "Rolling Through The Hood" and "Glow" that make this album a little more special than the recent surge of over-slickly and sometimes tediously produced R'n'B albums.
Although one or two tracks may seem fairly mundane, the amount of good points this album possesses make it a rarity in the world that is the current music industry.
