Customer Review

on 27 March 2004
R. Kelly is simply the most talented player in the game of mainstream r&b, which makes his current legal issues all the more unfortunate. But still, this hits collection is a great showcase of his talents as songwriter, producer, and singer. The hits run the gamut from the libido ("Your Body's Callin'"), to partying ("Fiesta") to the spiritual ("I Believe I Can Fly"). Not since Prince has an artist been able to embrace on record both the sensual and the spiritual with aplomb and skill. And let's not forget to credit R. for reviving the career of soul elders the Isley Brothers, who first collaborated with Kelly on "On the Down Low (Nobody Has to Know)." But I have to join many of the other reviewers and complain that this hits collection does omit at least a couple of worthy hits. For example, I would have gladly traded in "You're My Angel" (featuring the shrill Celine Dion) for the outstanding 1998 single "Half on a Baby." But the second disc of remixes (including an interesting re-recording of "Gotham City") nearly compensates this. "R in R&B" may not be a flawless collection, but the material that's included certainly is.
