There's something about this album that surprises me everytime i listen to it: though its production comes close to minimalism, its richness is impressive.Your attention is grabbed from beginning to end: let's take "in public": the beat is simple and there are few other noises here and there.However this song is,like the rest of the album, lush and...man,so damn good! Kelis and her producers discovered the secret formula of making a lot with a little.Of course that doesn't exclude the fact that they worked a lot to make this lp.You feel that this is a refined album, that they poured their knowledge and genuine talent into this damn cool record.
"Trick me" and "keep it down" are 2 attempts at rock r'n'b style,done with style."Milkshake" is a lot of fun."In public" with its sexy undertone is my personal favourite."Flashback" comes from "wanderland" her previous release,and is not great,not bad.There was no need to include it."Protect my heart" is a gorgeous,unpretentious little song."Glow" shines in all its glory,with its laid-back beat and more than fine little melody.My 2nd favourite."Millionaire" is fast and features a good vocal performance.Sugar honey iced tea is sooooo fresh and simple,with a discreet horn part.rolling through the hood is...simple.It's just kelis and a fine beat,nothing more.stick up is minimalist and has a strange feel to it.Who said that was a bad thing? Marathon is the same,with a nice string part and its ending is quite good.Oops! i forgot "attention"!Don't think it's because i don't like it! This song is like a cool breeze:cool music,great voice and fine lyrics.
That's about it! You,the r'n'b fan,yes you! You shall buy tasty for it contributes to the reviving of real r'n'b!I'm tellin' ya!
ps: to me real r'n'b is innovative and just plain fun!that's what it's about.

Most people know Kelis for the single containing her screaming "...I hate you so much right now...". Her debut album was a mix of hip hop and r&b produced by the then unknown Neptunes.
Fast-forward a year or two and her second album, Wanderland, failed spectacularly. In many ways it was too ahead
of its time, but mainly the ubiqutous nature of the Neptunes was beginning to tire.
Tasty has only a few Neptune produced tracks, and instead sees collaborations with Kelis` current love Nas as well as Andre 3000 from Outkast. The two collaborations with Raphael Saadiq are spectacular
The album contains the forthcoming single, Milkshake, and here the Neptunes quirky production does work with Kelis` husky voice as she sings, " My milkshake is better than yours..." Even the other song with Pharell, Flashback, sees Kelis giving a star performance against the disjointed bass.
Elsewhere there are touches of Angie Stone on the album, giving Kelis a chance to actually sing with a proper melody, something that Neptunes override with their production.
I was very surprised that as a whole, Tasty seems to work, providing a mix of ballad-type songs with the current fashionable R&B and hip-hop trends.

I was unsure about the album before buying it, the music usually isn't my cup of tea but after hearing the fantastic 'Milkshake' and catchy 'Trick Me' I thought it was worth a go. I was pleasently surprised, the funky beats and catchy tunes continue throughout the album. Not only do you have the genius of Kelis but the collaborations with Andrea 3000 and Nas are equally enjoyable. The album was more mainstream than I expected and one that will be in my CD player for a while yet!

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.
