Kelis - tasty
9th Jan 2004
The Kelis album
tasty was released late last year (2003). This is her third album, following on from (her debut)
Wanderlust, and I have to say I like it a lot.Standout tracks are
Trick Me and
Stick Up. The latter is built round an electric piano / organ riff I now always associate with DJ Shadow when I hear anything like it.
Trick Me has a loose dub undercurrent, combined with a hip-hoppy beat and a lovely, phat, farty, squelchy bass ... I love it.Overall,
tasty provides a mix of excellent ballad-type songs following the current fashionable R&B and hip-hop trends.
