Kelis 'Food' Album Review - Rolling Stone
Home Music Album Reviews


Art-pop pioneer Kelis has never been more soulful or more intimate than she is on her sixth album. The singer steps out of the EDM rocket she rode on her last LP, 2010's Flesh Tone, in favor of more earthly pleasures – equating food with sex in a way that would make George Costanza drool. Kelis pines for "that tall drink of water" over a Link Wray rumble and hopes you can make it to "Breakfast" on a passionate track that sounds like Terence Trent D'Arby auditioning for indie powerhouse 4AD. But the stark, minimalist production by TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek is so cool and aloof that these snacks never feel fully cooked.
