Elliott, Missy : The Cookbook
Take a seat, the chef will shortly tip the main course over your head
As far as tunes go, this is one helluva party LP: ‘Lose Control’’s ’80s electro update; ‘On And On’’s twisted Neptunes squelch-scratch fiesta; and ‘Partytime’’s patois-laced grooves all throw serious dancefloor dynamite. Of course, no Missy Elliott album would be complete without some man-baiting ( ‘Teary Eyed’, ‘Time And Time Again’), and while she might be a bit trigger-happy on occasion ( ‘Bad Man’), she remains one of a defiant kind. Touch her, if you dare.
