If you told us a few years ago that we'd be looking at a record cover with Missy Elliott posing in high heeled leather boots and a short skirt, we'd have laughed in your face. But times change, and who knows what's coming next, except that Missy & Timbo are here to serve up another platter filled with hot bounce tracks sure to ignite radio stations everywhere, and why not? Timbaland and Missy's tracks are stripped down to the bare minimum, with percolating rhythms punctuated only by fat bass blasts and an occasional squelch here and and the odd whistling sample there, with Missy spitting rhymes that may not rip shop in the cipher but get us open every time. Guest spots from Mary J Blige, Jay Z, Nelly, Beenie Man
, Elephant Man
and others. Includes "Pass The Dutch", "Wake Up", "Keep It Movin", "I'm Really Hot", "Toyz", "Let It Bump", "Pump It Up", "Let Me Fix My Weave" and "Spelling Bee".
