With song ti­tles like Jerk Ribs, Fri­day Fish Fry and Bis­cuits N’ Gravy there re­ally couldn’t be any other ti­tle for Kelis’ sixth al­bum than Food. Ditch­ing her afro-disco ex­cur­sions and more ex­per­i­men­tal mu­si­cal moods, this finds her al­most back to her roots… or root veg­eta­bles, as the case may be. Any­one hop­ing Kelis might bring the boys back to her yard with Milk­shake II might be dis­ap­pointed. This is an old skool record with one of the most un­der­rated voices in pop back at the top of her game. Aim­ing to be the fu­ture dipped into the past, Food serves tasty bites of clas­sic neo-soul and post-funk. Ex­pect this to be on many Best Of 2014 lists at year’s end.
