This review is from: Miss E... So Addictive (Audio CD)
A new direction for Missy Elliott, away from hardcore hiphop, but not towards R&B like Lauryn Hill but towards fat, booming funk. Sometimes it sounds as if George Clinton or Cameo's Larry Blackmon co-produced these songs. And Missy sings, well, not like an angel, but with a full and adult voice. Weakest point are the texts, the chest-thumping 'I am the best' lyrics, a sad hiphop cliche, that dosen't fit her. I love her since the first time I heard 'rain' and and each and every single and video she made was superb. A little bit less were her albums, not in a way that you would think hits and misses, but some parts were just weaker. This time it's the same, 'addictive' could be a 30 minute album that would all those jayzees and puffies and kellies hang themselves from the next tree. But who cares? her weaker stuff is ten times stronger than puffies best! This woman is gold and this album is her best ever!
