Missy is and always will be my #1 female rap artist. Supa Dupa Fly, Da Real World, Miss E...So Addictive, Under Construction, This Is Not A Test, and Cookbook. I have all of them. On this album, Missy kinds of fall short on some of the tracks (maybe because I'm a R&B fool), her dance tracks are not that interesting to me, but she makes up for them on a couple of songs. Joy is one of my favorite tracks, the beat is HOT and she got Mike Jones...(who) Mike Jones..(who) Mike Jones on the track. My other favorites include My Man featuring Fantasia, On & On featuring Pharrell Williams of the Neptunes, and Lose Control featuring Ciara and Fat Man Scoop. But by far the best DAMN songs on the LP are "Meltdown", she ripped it up on that...the beat is FIRE and her lyrics are the ish...(I think I'm in love like Beyonce' be with Jigga). And my absolute jam is "Teary Eyed". This is my favorite song of the album, because like I said, I love R&B and this song is sad and you can feel her pain. I can't go a day without listening to that song....I know her new album (rumored to be titled Cookbook II) is gonna be hot. (Also rumored her next single will be "We Run This")Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Cooking Up A Tasty Album
In my honest opinion, Missy Elliot has yet to make bad CD, and the "Cookbook" just confirms that she is still a force not to be messed with. She has maintained her success for ages, making chart topping hit after hit. With or without Timbaland (not that Tim is a bad producer) Missy pretty much pushes much of the female rapper compatition to the side. Though many critics didn't feel her last CD was a true testament of Elliots' style and performance, still,"This is not a test" was a cohesive and consistant disc, proving she can still make hits dispite critic drones. Missy falls back on her old stand-bys, using 80s samples, rubbery/slinky beats, slick rhymes and writing methods. She still mixes it up a bit so "Cookbook" is never boring, going between R&B, and just good old fashion rap. Once again Missy Elliot "cooks-up" a batch of tasty, catchy cuts, which get the party jumpin'.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
