Biography by Stephen Thomas Erlewine & Steve Huey
Urban R&B producer/vocalist/multi-instrumentalist/songwriter R. Kelly and his supporting band Public Announcement began recording in 1992 at the tail end of the new jack swing era, yet he was able to keep much of its sound alive while remaining commercially successful. While he created a smooth, professional mixture of hip-hop beats, ... Read more in Amazon's R. Kelly Store

THE KING OF R&B IS BACK! 25 Jan. 2000
By Francisco Pérez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The best CD (or CD:s)I own is R Kelly's "R". No one can beat this masterpiece. Except, of course, the soulman himself. One song I can't get enough of is the fantastic "Half On A Baby". Seems like heaven appears while hearing it. Other great songs are "Did You Ever Think" for its extremely original text and beats, "When A Woman's Fed Up" one of many truths about women, "Don't Put Me Out", " V.I.P." the one about jealousy , "Reality", "2nd Kelly", "Down Low Double Life", the best ballad of the year "If I Could Turn Back The Hands Of Time" , "Suicide" for its blues, "Home Alone" the cool party song ... the list just goes on and on. Only one thing disappointed me: the CD didn't include "Be Careful", which can be found on Sparkle's CD (produced entirely by R Kelly). I like both the fast and the slow songs, but the slow touches my heart and soul every time. I bought the CD about one year ago, and i still listen to it. If you want timeless soul then look no further. If you want music that never gets boring buy this one. R Kelly is without a doubt the 90's biggest R&B and soulartist.

R.KELLY IS THE MAN!!!! 14 Oct. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
When it comes to the king of r+b soul you have to give up respect for this man. he is truly a musical genius. Just hearing seven tracks off his new CD R. makes waiting for it to come out even harder. With tracks like half on a baby, Element of suprise, and I'm your angel, he will be sure to be bigger than before. I like how he seperated his double disk set. One Cd is slow jams and ballads while the other is hip/hop and r+b with appearances by Nas, Jay-z, and Foxy Brown. The track with nas is tight. This will probably be R.kelly's best and I can't wait to hear the rest of his songs. His remixing and producing skills are a lot tighter now and that is what will make this CD one of his best ones yet. If you haven't heard of R.Kelly this a good time to go out and get him. (A must have for your music collection!!!)

.... Too many songs 8 May 2000
By J. Highsmith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Don't get me wrong, this CD is slammin' at times. R Kelly takes you back to "12 Play" with some of his slow jams. The slow jams from "Born Into The 90s" is what got Mr. Kelly known in the business. "Honey Love", "Slow Dance" and "Dedicated" were all songs to remember. "12 Play" was his breakthrough album. His slow jams were so tight that people didn't even bother to criticize some of the fast songs that you had to fast forward in order to get to the slow songs. "It Seems Like You're Ready", "Your Body's Callin'", and "For You" have always been favorites of mine. On his 3rd album it seemed like R Kelly was fighting between his religious beliefs and the formula that made his previous albums work. He still found time to make "Down Low (Nobody Has To Know"), "I Can't Sleep", "(You To Be) Happy" w/The Notorious B.I.G. and "Baby, Baby, Baby, Baby". On "R" the best moments are when R Kelly stays true to his old "12 Play" formula. Most of the slow jams are on point and are worth the double CD's price. I'll put "When A Woman's Fed Up", "One Man", "Looking 4 Love", "Suicide", "Etcetera","If I Could Turn Back The Hands Of Time" and "I'm Your Angel" w/Celine Dion against almost any other R&B artists slow jams and R Kelly will be #1 against most artists. My personal favorites are "Home Alone" w/Keith Murray, "Spendin' Money", "When A Woman's Fed Up" which is the best song, "One Man", "Suicide", "If I Could Turn Back The Hands Of Time" and "Looking For Love". I agree with reviewers "I.B." and "Tony" when they say that this should've been one CD. Even though this is a tight double CD collection, they're a lot of "filler" songs on the CD. "2nd Kelly","V.I.P", "Down Low Double Life" (How many versions of the song can you make), "Dollar Bill" w/Foxy Brown (R Kelly is trying to rap again) and the forgettable "The Opera" which never should've been made. This is the reason why I gave this CD a 4 instead of a 5. This is still a quality CD. If you're a R Kelly fan, this is a must have for your collection.

The Best R. Kelly Album Ever 26 Nov. 2005
By GORRILA UNIT FAN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a great cd with a lot of songs and comes with 2 disc it is much worth buying with some hits like "When A Women's Fed Up", "Half On A Baby", "Did You Ever Think", "I Believe I Can Fly" and some others i rate this album 20/10. Also there is "Did You Ever Think Remix" with more of Nas and that is what the vedios made from. PERFECT

Pretty Hot... 18 July 2000
By S.B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
R. Kelly isn't the best singer, neither is he the best song writer. But this album has come together fairly well. Kelly's prior albums have been basically about how much he loves the ladies. This one is not only about that, but how much money he wants to spend on them, how bad they should want him since he has money, and how he wants to get them pregnant (basically). Another very prelavent theme is about how all the other men in the world are jealous of him and player/baller hates him becasue he is rich. Poor R. Kelly, boo hoo, everyone believes he can fly and is buying his CDs and paying for his big house and $6,000 Versace outfits and $300,000 Bentleys. Anyway, this album isn't anything so great that it needs to be on two CDs, a fair portion of it is just high-quality filler, cookie-cutter ballads with so-so hooks and pretty guitar riffs, a la Sparkle's "Be Careful." He also recycles the melody from the chorus of "G.H.E.T.T.O.U.T." by Changing Faces, which he wrote, on three separate songs, which is sort of shocking considering how seriously he takes himself. But the bangin' tracks are really bangin' and even on the less than perfect stuff there are innovations. The first disc is the best, the second is okay. If "VIP" was on the first disc I'd rarely play the second. "Home Alone," "Spendin' Money," "Suicide," "We Ride" and "When A Woman's Fed Up" are other favorites of mine. Since this is a double album it's too bad you have to pay extra for this since a lot of people will only be listening to half of it more or less, most of the time. But if you don't mind dropping the cash then you're sure to find a few new favorite songs on this joint.
