    A thousand times more exciting in every way than most everything in the air at the moment.... Timbaland's production is frontier staking stuff... [#208, p.58]
  2. What's most exciting about Miss E is its sense of playfulness: It's the rare hip-hop album in which unabashed joy -- rather than acquisitiveness or grimacing gangsterism -- is the main ingredient.
  3. Miss E... So Addictive shows another side of Missy Elliott, yet unlike the calculations of other artists who morph themselves mainly as a marketing scheme, her dancing-sex-queen moves come through more like revelation than reinvention.
  4. Opens with a six-track attack that's rare for any genre, especially contemporary R&B.
  5. It's a blessing that the surrogate mum to the hip-hop youth of America is out there pushing for sounds as deranged, commercial, newly kinetic, and socially risque as those licking your ears in 'X-tasy' and 'Slap! Slap! Slap!'.
  6. Now if only the duo could deliver an LP that's consistently rather than merely frequently brilliant, we could stop fast-forwarding through the second-string tracks and soggy ballads that clutter up side B.

    A kind, weird club crunker, Ecstasy references included. [Jul 2001, p.128]
