5.0 out of 5 stars Album, been wait'n for. April 22, 2014
Format:Audio CD
Each of her albums had certain tracks that were infectious. But,this whole album is. The horns,her husk voice reaching falsetto, lyrics, and the whole sequencing of the album.
I always new knew that a complete album was in her but the right pieces had to come together. And, on FOOD they finally did. Her R&B fans should be satisfied and her last record was a one off dance record. I don't know if it was an obligation to finish out a record contract.
Don't get me wrong Brave, Acapella,4th of July, were great but the dance root she's more talented and FOOD proves it that a whole band adds so much too her.
I say buy this album and the guy from TV on the Radio helped out so much and this album she just wasn't just a voice she was part of making the whole FOOD album. Unlike before having the record company dragging in different song writers that made the albums un cohesive.
Finally, the talented Kelis has a Cohesive album.the Closet was her debut. Weird been about 15 yrs since an actual whole cohesive album. I've listened to it 3 times and there's more sounds every time. So,buy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Yummy in the tummy April 23, 2014
Format:Audio CD
Music and food seem to go hand-in-hand for Kelis through various projects. Following the release of "Tasty" (2003) and its massive hit single "Milkshake", Kelis graduated as a saucier, hosted her own cookery show, previewed a sauce line as well as a clothing line, and has been working on a recipe book for some time. In contrast to previous album, the electro-dance "Flesh tone", new album "Food" is a feast of sweaty funk grooves and impeccable soul melodies, built around blasts of brass and soundtrack-like orchestral moments.

Food as a concept takes on so many meanings, but as a theme it is better described through "consumption". Kelis, rather than be political or existential, focuses on how humans consume the world around them through memories, experiences and lifestyles. This new album was reportedly written with influences from the records her parents played while growing up. Obviously, she understands that a meal provides more than sustenance for the body, this is so much more than a gastronomic concept album.

Here she is at her most homely and reflective. One could argue that "Food" is a cleverly disguised break-up record. Her divorce with rapper Nas provides lyric material which Kelis addresses with strength and maturity. Her vocal delivery is flawless; her husky, soulful voice demands full attention from the listener. Big bouncey beats, deep throbbing bass, crunchy guitar riffs, pulsating hip-hop grooves, snappy drums, dramatic strings, bright horns, hints of gospel, elements of folk; "Food" is a jazzy-tingled, soul-fueled, R 'n' B-flavoured 13-course delectable feast of deliciousness.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing, Solid Album April 22, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent album.

The horns, the baseline, and piano layered with her raspy/bluesy voice meld together and simmer like one heaping bowl of gumbo.

My favorites: Hooch, Cobbler, Biscuits and Gravy.
