10. Baby Elephant - Turn My Teeth Up!
Turn My Teeth Up shows that he knows how to bring Worrell’s experimentation into a cohesive work of funk-pop-soul-jazz-rock. The record is rounded out by guest vocals from David Byrne, Reggie Watts and George Clinton, among others. This is the album I was hoping Gnarls Barkley would release this year.
10. Mariah Carey -
God is she my favorite crazy. I will hang out in her Hello Kitty themed room any day of the week if it means she cranks out more bouncy R&B gems like "I'm That Chick" and "Touch My Body." Yes, it's not as epic as The Emancipation of Mimi, but it is pure pop greatness, from the Queen of Pop Greatness. The "Mine Again" of the album is the James Poyser produced "I Wish You Well," which makes me cry, further proving that just like Mariah, I am forever a 12 year-old girl. Also, props to Mimi for having the balls to name her record after the mass-energy equivalence formula, because we all know she can barely add.
