Just a step before the millennium, Miss Bitch opens the door to da real world, only to get a small bite of the future, a bite that made her admit that she wasn't prepared enough for such a decisive move.


Half the songs are good, the other half tend to drag on too long. Nothing outright bad, so I can't give it a bad score. But nothing too remarkable either. This album is trapped in a music purgatory - too much talent between Missy's songwriting and Timbo's production, but not enough inventive ideas or superduper songs to rise above the rest. So, even though I saved a good number of tracks from the record, I'm not sure the it warrants more then a few front-to-end listens.
