Product Description


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

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Kelly 27 Oct 2001
By A Customer
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, touching lyrics 23 April 2000
Format:Audio CD
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.
