Product Description

Product Description

S/T CD EUROPEAN JIVE 1995

Amazon.co.uk

A double disc may seem indulgent after barely a decade in the biz, but after meandering through the commercial minefields of innocent fun (1992's Born into the '90s), pure raunch (1993's 12 Play), and pop crossover (1995's R. Kelly), Kelly has come close to the perfect mix--and if it takes two discs to do so, why not? There are still moments of indulgence (the forced theatrics of "The Opera"), and the occasional venture into mediocrity ("Did You Ever Think?"), but the sheer funk of tracks like "Home Alone" (a head-bobber featuring Keith Murray) and "Dollar Bill" (featuring--surprise!--Foxy Brown) allows you to overlook such cracks in the formula. Other bit players in this star vehicle include Cam'Ron, Noreaga, Jay-Z, Nas, and (yes) Celine Dion. --Rebecca Wallwork

Format: Audio CD
This is my absolute favourite of R. Kelly's releases. It's more hiphop tinged than some of his later work (no Celine Dion duets here) but not as lewd or explicit as 12 Play and more recently TP2.com.
Although guest slots on R'n'B albums are a penny a dozen now cameos by the Isley Brothers and The Notorious B.I.G. are truly memorable. I'm the biggest Mary J. Blige fan and (You To Be)Be Happy featuring Biggie reminds me of a track from her My Life album. It's my favourite cut from the album and Biggie just rips it.
The whole vibe throughout the album is really mellow but the finale is the rousing gospel number Trade In My Life. It'll make you feel like your in church again, only a really trendy one where fit men with big biceps sing the leads.
If you only buy one album by R.Kelly make this it.

This album is essential for all lovers of RnB. The lyrics are excellent, with added rap from the Notorious BIG and various other artists. Truly, brilliant, and in my opinion, his best.

By J. Coyle on 11 April 2012
Format: Audio CD
If someone had told me in 1995 (this album's release date) that in 2012 I'd be listening obsessively to R. Kelly's R.Kelly album I would have begged them: "Shoot me now." This is so unlike anything I was listening to back then (Blur, Oasis, Pulp).

But it's a real grower. The thing I like about it is that the 'vibe' remains pretty much the same throughout.There are no sudden jolts. That might sound boring but it isn't at all - it makes it a truly cohesive album. It's like bathing in warm molasses. Everything just f-l-o-w-s.

The production on it is phenomenal, his voice is warm, clear and seductive, and the beats are very, very mellow. Like Marvin Gaye before him, Kelly melds sex and spirituality (he was brought up as a gospel singer). He's also mad as two balloons, as evidenced with lyrics such as, "even the statue of Liberty wants to bump and grind"; "you remind me of my jeep - I want to ride it."

The stand out tracks for me are... erm, all of them! Okay - Step In My Room; (You to be) Be Happy; Thank God It's Friday, Religious Love and Tempo Slow.

He's one smooth operator.

This self titled album was my first R. Kelly CD purchase in 1997. Simply put, I love the album. It's R. Kelly at his very best. Had to repurchase when I was unable to locate my old copy. Now, I am happy again.
