Let's get one thing out of the way: This is a really important album. For two reasons, firstly Missy Elliot is definitely the best female rapper around, she's quirky and interesting, but most importantly Timbaland's production is the template for most R&B/Hip-Hop albums and it is a sound that has come to dominate the charts.

That being said it is not the best album ever, it is fun and all but as a result of having listened to so much similar stuff after it is not really surprising listening to it now. The best thing about it are really Missy's lyrics. She's a weirdo.

So a very important album and one which definitely deserves to be a part of this list, this is, however, in some few cases not equivalent to an album that I would like to listen to everyday from here to doomsday.
