Holly Dolly is a cute album ready for the Holidays. Unfortunately the duets aren't really as impactful as they should be, but Dolly's sweet energy is really what makes the record.

Her first ever release really brought Missy into the forefront as one of the Queens of hip-hop but also Timbaland as one of the most prevalent producers of the 1990s and early 2000s. Overall a fun ride. Listen to: The Rain, Hit 'Em Wit Da Hee, Sock it 2 Me, Pass de Blunt.

Wow, the critics were hard on The Cookbook, but to be fair I appreciate that Missy wanted to try different producers to produce and eclectic and different sort of album. Each track is a different flavour added to the artist's repertoire. Listen to: Teary Eyed, We Run This, Lose Control, On & On.

This is Not a Test is like an extension of her previous record Under Construction and features some of her most electronic underground club tracks ever. Not as popular with her fan base as her previous four albums, but still contains quite a few bangers. Listen to: Pass That Dutch, Wake Up, Don't Be Cruel, I'm Not Perfect.

Under Construction is a love letter to old school hip-hop and R&B as Missy shows her eclectic nature. My only real critique is the need to add a disclaimer/copyright on all but one of the tracks by stating "This is a Missy Elliott exclusive". Listen to: Work It, Gossip Folks, Bring the Pain, Slide, Back in the Day.
