Miss E... So Addictive [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Tracy E. Hopkins
Continuing the beat odyssey she and her Dirty South partner Timbaland started with '97's groundbreaking Supa Dupa Fly, the multitalented Missy Misdemeanor Elliott is back with her third disc Miss E...So Addictive -- and addictive is exactly what the record is. Stylistically, Missy stretches into some new areas, but she sets an unrelenting tone with the first single, "Get Ur Freak On," with its frenetic, Middle Eastern-inspired, percussive beat. She keeps the party rollin' with the roller-rink vibe of "Old School Joint," the pulsating house music tribute "My People" featuring a spicy guest shot by Eve, and the stuttered-beat remix of "One Minute Man" featuring Jay-Z ...

Stylistically, Missy stretches into some new areas, but she sets an unrelenting tone with the first single, "Get Ur Freak On," with its frenetic, Middle Eastern-inspired, percussive beat.

But she and Timbaland also prove to biters of their style that like Ike and Tina, Missy and Tim know how to switch gears from rough and rugged to nice and easy. The seductive "X-tasy" finds Missy dropping vocal come-ons; "Take Away" is a sensual ballad featuring Ginuwine; and "Higher Ground" is a gospel-fest featuring Yolanda Adams, Mary Mary, and Kim Burrell. From start to finish, Miss E...So Addictive keeps listeners fiendin' for another fix of unpredictable, fun-filled hip-hop.
All Music Guide - John Bush
Sounding more assured of her various strengths than at any time since her startling debut, Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott broke in several directions for 2001's Miss E...So Addictive. At the same time, she's a sexed-up rapper demanding respect from men, a loved-up club diva leading the charge of rappers into the brave new world of dance culture, and a sensitive female spreading syrup over a few great ballads. It's a tribute to her incredible songwriting skills and Timbaland's continuing production excellence that she can have it any way she wants it and still come away with a full-length that hangs together brilliantly. She definitely starts out hardcore, with a pair of self-explanatory titles "Dog in Heat," "One Minute Man" featuring Elliott cooling down on a trio of rappers Redman, Method Man, Ludacris and definitely getting the best of them. By "Get Ur Freak On," the lead single, she's changed angles and become a new-millennium diva straddling the worlds of hip-hop and commercial dance with bumping club tracks like "Scream a.k.a. Itch" and "4 My People." But before listeners can reconcile Elliott the club kid, special guest Ginuwine takes the album into love-ballad territory with "Take Away," a half-step ballad with an irresistible plucked-string production from Timbaland. Though Miss E...So Addictive is undeniably Elliott's affair, Timbaland's production really stretches out and pulls the album together. He's less reliant on his oft-copied trademarks, and more willing to experiment with left-field samples and seemingly odd bridges that always work despite the audio high-wire act. Though it fails to come up with anything to top her big singles hit, "The Rain Supa Dupa Fly," Miss E...So Addictive is her best album so far.
Rolling Stone - Rob Sheffield
[four stars] Missy Elliott's "Get Ur Freak On" is the weirdest, loudest, funkiest and just plain best single of the summer so far, a sonic orgasmatron of Indian tables and Dirty South future-shock funk…. And Miss E proclaims unto all the world that Missy (the singer-rapper-songwriter), along with Tim (the producer), is back on top, making the most sonically inventive, rhythmically explosive pop music around. La freak, c'est chic.
