Or more accurately the forgotten album, I myself delayed purchase due to poor reviews, a mistake, as although nothing from it will make any greatest hits package it pure RP. He wrote 9 of the 12 tracks & shared credits for "True Love", released after his spell with the Power Station & before his live album, it was his penultimate album.
It kicks off with the single "True Love", a track if released during his glory days that would have been a major hit, the majority of the other tracks are polished & professional, but not instantly memorable. The exceptions are "Tennis" a clever track reminiscant of his 70s work, the cover of "20 million things" & "Let's get it on" the rest are standard RP - but his standards were always very high!

Well, there has been alot said over how good Rhythm And Blues, just look at the other review for the 'anti' review'. Personally i disagree this is a good album from one of the most talented singer/songwriters around. The start of the album has one of his greatest songs, the sublime 'True Love'
I admit in the middle Mr. Palmer seems to lose his way and wallows in 'adequacy'. But to be classed as being too cliched is wrong. The album comes from the heart and it is a perfect album to play to a loved one.
The lyrics are good, the music is very good...so lets here it for Mr Palmer

The album would have been better if he had used real drums. This is a purely techno album. The song writing was strong, and Palmer's vocals were good. This is definitely a concept album. After a long series of eclectic albums made between 1969 and 1990, Palmer started making concept albums - Ridin High (cabaret in 1992), Living In Fear (hard rock 1996) and Drive (blues 2003). R&B is an essential part of the Palmer canon. True Love and Stonecold are two of the best songs he ever wrote.

One always approaches RP albums with a certain feeling of stepping into the dark...he often crams too many different styles onto one piece of work,ending up pleasing no-one all the time.However,this time,the whole thing is far too samey.Uninspired arrangements and the most hoary collection of tired old sexual/romantic cliches I've heard for a long time.The old roue needs to change the record.The only good track is the last,the cover of Lowell George's 20 Million Things.

R&B Flavored Pop w/ Soulful Vocals 9 Nov. 2003
By Thomas Leonard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Critics and fans were torn on this 1999 Robert Palmer album. Some loved it, some hated it, alternately praising the smooth soulful vocals or complaining the heavy keyboard laiden arrangements or the lack of traditional "Palmer style" hard rock. Here, the singer tackles modern sounding pop music with a strong R&B slant arrangement wise. There a few uptempo numbers, particulalry "You're Not The Only One", and songs like the single "Stone Cold" have slower but still scorching dance sound to them. "True Love", the first single, is a definate soul pop ballad that vocally plays into all of Palmer's strengths as a blue eyed soul singer. "Paradise" is easily the most romantic song on the set, and one of the most romantic songs in the singer's catalogue. Uptempo dominates the set however as ballads sit in the minority. "Mr Wise Guy" is another solid soul flavored effort, and Palmer hits all the right notes with a surprisingly good rendition of Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On". There are no hard rock numbers and no world music numbers, trademarks of Palmer's earlier albums. Still, this album excells at showing Robert Palmer could not only sing, but compose and produce songs with a definate fresh soul pop feel to them. "True Love" and "Stone Cold" are clearly the highlights but the album has few misses, even it lacks many home runs. You wont have to be a die hard Robert Palmer fan to enjoy this album.

Mystery Blues 11 Mar. 2011
By Robert E. Torres - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I got this cd in 2003 from the U.K
it was alright but something bothered me about it?
Over years I listened once and a while.
Out of curiosity I bought the Japanses version
Just recently I heard it had different tracks
Well It worth every penny I paided for it.
$11.00 . Rhythm and Blues was released in japan on
oct 10 1998 a full nine months, before
it was released in US .
Something happened between oct and july
the UK version has 12 tracks
tennis replaced dance with me.
What really sad about it that both the U.K and U.S
versions are edited and remixed poorly

heres the difference.

No Problem 3.42 min japan version U.S version 3.35
I Choose You 5.07 min japan version U.S version 4.18
Sex Appeal 4.48 min japan version U.S version 4.34 min
Work to Make it Work 98 4.05 min japan version U.S version 3.33 min
All The Will In World 5.02 min japan version U.S version 4.57 min
Mr Wise Guy 3.45 min japan version U.S version 3.32 min
Lets Get It On 98 6.23 min japan version U.S version 4.09 min

plus Japan version has bounus tracks Captured a great song
Spellbound another great one
and The Long Winding Road

I don't know happened here.? But... it was messed up what
record companies did to Robert and his last original music cd
If you enjoy Robert Palmer do yourself, a favor.
try find Japanese first version of this cd.
It's great.

More Blues than Rhythm 14 Mar. 2000
By Mr. D. W. Lloyd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I've been a Robert Palmer fan for several years now and I have all of his albums. I hate to hear anything bad about his music but I find this album a bit of a let down, especially after waiting such a long time for it's release. The tracks are too keyboard orientated and this spoils it for me. The single 'True love' is exceptional as is the wonderful 'Stone Cold'(with it's great vocal arrangements). The album showcases Palmer's splendid vocal, however the songs just don't cut it. Take my advice, buy 'Honey' or 'Heavy Nova' instead.

Not true R&B, but not Pop either 9 May 2002
By LabRat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
First off, this is not true R&B by any stretch by the imagination but rather true 'blue eye soul' which isn't bad. I too stumbled upon this CD at a store and decided to take a chance and bought it. I was very surprised at how good this CD is. Robert really searched deep inside and pulled out some of his best vocal work in years. While other reviewers felt this album was soulless I say it was the quite the opposite. On such songs as 'Stone Cold', Wise guy, I Choose You, and the title track screams of sensuality that is especially true of Marvin Gaye's 'Let's get it on'. It's a shame that this CD didn't get the radio play it deserved. But his tour '99 to support it was the coolest!

Out of the Park Grand Slam (But Nobody Seems to Care) 19 Oct. 1999
By David Marks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Robert is back with his first U.S. Release in five years. It seems his old label EMI and him had a nasty falling out and Robert found it impossible to get a record deal in the states for some time. While Rhythm & Blues is new to the U.S., it was released over a year earlier in Japan with a couple different tracks and the cover version of "Long and Winding Road." Robert did the song for a Subaru Commerical and it was a mini-hit, enough to get him a deal in Japan. He then was released in Europe several months later and finally in the U.S. on another small label with no fanfare. Nobody knows Robert has a new CD and even less seem to care. Everybody remembers him for Simply Irresistible or Addicited to Love, but Robert was singing solo back in 1974 on his debut record Sneakin' Sally thru the Alley. He has stood the test of time very well. Robert changes and evolves constantly, he writes and arranges a lot of his music, sometimes he plays the instruments, witness the 1980 album Clues when he does a LOT of the instrumentals. To everyone who likes good music, buy this CD. But I warn you, it's ment to be played loud! Keep up the great music Robert!
