What a classic!
Such a shame she parted ways with The Neptunes.
I'm sure she would have been one of the biggest R&B stars if she didn't.

A classic.
She was the first girl to scream on a track (cit.) on Caught Out There, at least as far as mainstream music goes.
The success that Caught Out There got back then was so unexpected for the kind of track it was.
The other singles were also great, like the album itself.

I remember loving "Get Along With You" and being shocked when it missed the UK Top 40! :lol:

I love love this album. The Neptune production really suited her voice. This album still sounds good and I love the colourful wigs she was sporting on this album.

^I don't know. It's hard to pick favourites lol....Apart from "Food", I pick the others before FT simply because of nostalgic reasons. I felt FT was missing something and was just too short of an album for me but I still really enjoy it though.

I think it being short is its advantage, if it had more songs maybe they would've been fillers. It's just perfect the way it is 8-)

I became fan in 2010 so i hate the fact that i only got slayed by this album this week, i missed so many years of enjoying it :cry:

At least i have basically 2 new Kelis albums to listen until new album :lol:

This album is bananas, still. I was listening to it the other day and it still sounds fresh.
'Caught Out There', 'Good Stuff' and 'Get Along With You' were brilliant singles too. I wish the era lasted a little longer with the release of a fourth/fifth single, but oh well.

Kelis really is something special. Looking at her discography, she keeps reinventing herself. I have so much respect for her.
She's the definition of cool.
