Flesh Tone, Kelis

BEST OF 2010

It may be too early to call this album a 'best of 2010.' I've only had it for a few days. But, I haven't stopped listening during those few days. Is this an amazing, earth shattering record? No. It is it incredible dance pop? Oh, hell yeah. Every song makes you dance. The lyrics are so quick to sing along to. Her voice sounds fantastic and realizes the music is definately the most important part of the record.

'22nd Century' is easily the songs greatest moment. Also, it is a dance anthem for 2010.

'Emancipate' is almost the silliest song on the album. An almost constant repetition of "emancipate yourself" being sung. But, it works. A great dance, disco message. This is the kind of song the Pointer Sisters or Donna Summers wished they had penned.

'4th of July' is the purest pop. Her vocals are thick around every vowel. A husky, deep song style on this track.

Many are comparing this album to the influences of Rihanna and Lady Gaga. But, I don't agree. I hear a whole lot of Grace Jones. And, that is always a great thing.
