Food - Ninja Tune
FILTER Grade: 80%
By Kathy Iandoli on April 23, 2014
Kelis swaps the EDM rhythms from 2010’s Flesh Tone for a more soulful vibe on Food. It’s a veritable smorgasbord: The funky “Jerk Ribs” and “Cobbler” are paired with the intensely potent “Biscuits ‘n’ Gravy” and rock-infused “Fish Fry.” All culinary references aside, her sixth studio album houses a plethora of sounds that clearly displays the artist’s vocal range. Whether making us dance or encouraging us to think, Kelis is always out to fatten us up with her musical menu.
