Kelis has always been game to subvert expectations. "Caught Out There," from her 1999 debut, Kaleidoscope, had her storming the airwaves with a chant of "I hate you so much right now!" After a sophomore disc that didn't see release in America, she returns with "Milkshake," a schoolyard taunt for grownup girls. The minimalist Neptunes production was an obvious first single from Tasty, but the CD hardly stops there. From collaborations with Andre 3000 ("Millionaire," a showcase for the OutKast frontman's falsetto) and Nas (the randy "In Public") and a rap-rock exercise ("Keep It Down") to irresistible updates of early-'80s R&B ("Protect My Heart," "Glow"), the disc offers plenty in the way of potential follow-ups. While less playful than some of her past work, Tasty brings a raised eyebrow and good humor to the 21st century sex-u-up template. --Rickey Wright

Really great album

"This album is so gorgeous! I wasn't a fan of Milkshake when it hit the airwaves and (wrongly) wrote the entire album off. But after getting hooked on Kelis Was Here, I decided to sample Kelis' discography. And let me say this: Tasty is one of the best album's I've ever owned. In contemporary(well...four years after the initial release) terms, this album would rival Nelly Furtado's Loose for supremacy when it comes to rock-hip-hop-pop. With The Neptunes, Andre 3000 and Raphael Saddiq, among others, at the helm, Tasty is a rock solid album.

"This album has one of my most favorite Kelis songs, Glow produced by Raphael Saadiq. This is a really good album. What I love most about it is that it's the first time we're hearing more of what others would do with Kelis. I like the Neptunes, but considering how recycled their beats are, it was good to hear something else from Kelis.
* Glow - Produced by Raphael S.
* Attention - Another produced by Raphael, great song
* Trick Me - It's infectious and fun, lol, I can't get enough of this
* Marathon - dark, sexy slow groove
* Stick Up - Put your hands up in the air it's a stick up! LOL @ the metaphor, still a cool song
* Sugar, Honey, Iced Tea - Nice groove from the Neptunes
* Protect My Heart
Definitely worth picking up.
