The tight electro hip-hop beats of Richard X meet Mrs 'I hate you so much' Kelis to brilliant effect on Finest Dreams. The beat would not be out of place on Madonna's American Life, and the vocals laid down by Kelis are Janet Jackson-like.
Essentially a love song with both angst and compassion, Finest Dreams progresses from the loved up to the bitter. This tune is perfect for cruising in the summer sun.
Despite a looped beat and lack of distinct bassline the track carries through the full three minutes without being at all monotonous, and the b-side shows Finest Dreams has massive remix potential. You could find the remix filling the dance floor at your nearest r & b club, while the radio-friendly original eats up airtime.
