i’m interrupting your normally scheduled browsing to bring you a bonus mini review of the new Missy Elliott CD, The Cookbook (’cause i know you’re all interested)…

music: YOWSAS!… once again, amazing beats on the majority of the tracks… for goodness sakes did i hear a marching band?

lyrics: Grrrrr!… always the drawback, i really don’t want to hear about your sexuality… keep it in your pants, (*dj Scratches*)!

hot spots: Lose Control (Fat Man Scoop and a ridiculous beat), We Run This (Apache throwback beat), and Bad Man (just plain bananas)

low riders: Meltdown, Mommy (lyrically), most of the bottom half is slower musically that’s *gasp* slightly boring featuring trite r&b rhythms and appeal…

bottom line: why should the devil have all the good music? (giggle)… very strong album (both beats and language), so if you do pick it up, take note of your surroundings before bugging out and do your best to tune out some of the lyrics…

that is all…

peace… love… bdg…
