Man, I wish this album was better-produced because the things Kelis sings about really come from a place of vulnerability and strength.

The sound that is present throughout this album is very unflattering mainly because it sounds so painfully dated. Back when the album was released, the music industry was slowly transitioning into the brief but omnipresent "brostep" sound.

An almost perfect album, Fleshtone is a vastly different sound than Kelis' previous 4 efforts, which were more RnB focused. The mixture of electronic, dance and euro-pop really suits Kelis' raspy deep vocals. Overall one of her best. Listen to: 4th of July, Scream, Brave, 22nd Century.

The way the entire album flows together creates a brilliant piece of art.
