Amazing. I love how long it makes you wait for the hook, which only makes it more sublime when it arrives.
#32 was a Top 40 Hate Crime.
I hadn't realised there was a single mix until watching that video a minute ago - still great, but a bit less subtle than the album version.
I really liked both this and the album but not something I have returned to much. I prefer my Kelis doing R&B. Her earlier albums are all great and "Kaleidoscope" especially is still in rotation from time to time.
It does nothing for me.
Still an absolute joy, and so is the rest of the album. The latter is still her only second best after the wonderful debut.
Is it? I hadn't noticed any difference...
I can't believe it's already been seven years old!
Oh I can see a thread for "Trick Me" in the similar threads. Literally never get tired of that song. The ultimate Kelis track for me.
But anyway...I don't wanna come down
the only difference I notice is that the video version is shorter and gets rid of the interludes which are unnecessary in some parts of the album
For being such a second (or even third) rate popstar, Kelis has an amazing back catalogue.
Fleshtone is such an incredible album.
Shame the one following it was fucking unlistenable.
The Richard X mix of this is just BEYOND
Was the last album bad? I never even bothered to properly listen to it.
Her even numbered albums are always worse than the odd ditto.
I like the last album. It's entirely different to this, though...
there were a couple pretty good tracks but it was just a bit of something no one really wanted.
fleshtone is astonishingly solid. short albuns ftw.
According to Spotify, she's had a new song out in 2017; "Who's Loving You".
04. Kelis Was Here
5. Kelis Was Here
Kelis Was Here was terrible too!
Every other album really is shit!
Kelis Was Here had superb singles though.
Honestly this is one of my favourite albums of all time. What an epic journey through time and space from start to finish.
Track rating: ALL ELEVEN
I hate campaigns like KElis Was Here. *releases a 20 track album but only 2 singles are released and fucks off for another 4 years*
THREE singles were released!
Religion, Science Fiction, Technology
The only 4th of July I actually need in my life.
not in my country dear
Home was fucking EXQUISITE! Suomi's right - 11s ALL ROUND FOR FLESH TONE
I really liked the Food album but yeah, it's such a tonal shift that it's not even comparable.
a dated gay gem
I remember going to the tour for this, only a third of the venue had been sold and I suspect most of them had come to see supporting gnome, Katie Kills or what's her name. cringing! but Kelis brought it
A brilliant song from a great album.
WE.CONTROL.THE DANCE. FLOOR.
I also thought Kelis Was Here was bad at first because it seemed like such a mess after the previous albums but then it grew and now I think there are so many great tracks on it.
Well lucky for you the segues are unavailable to listen on Spotify.
I think the segues are nice as the album is short as it is anyway.
Not her best still very good.
I have created my own little best of Kelis on Spotify and it's
*Runs and hides before Sheena WADES in tutting and hissing how disposable everything is!!!!!!!!'
I am missing Finest Dreams from my custom made playlist because apparently Richard X's album is not available in south America
EXCUSE me? I have no issue with Spotify, I use it myself. But not listening to an album FOR FREE because you can't be bothered to turn off the latest RED GIRL RECORDS opus is another matter ENTIRELY...
Isn't "Finest Dreams" on Kelis's "The Hits" album?
That piano intro/outro is the fucking tits.
This really is MAGNIFICENT still
