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 90's), pure raunch (1993's 12 Play), and pop crossover (1995's R. Kelly), R. 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

"First of all, R.Kelly is my favorite male artist of all time. Second,in this Awesome Double Album he shows more than ever his way to sing: R&B, Slow Jams, Ballads, Hip-Hop, Jazz, and ether Flamenco; Speaking English,French, and a little Spanish. There are pleny of great music here. My favorites are: Home Alone, If Im with you, Half on a Baby, When a Woman Fed Up, Get Up on a
Room, One Man, We Ride(With Camron,Noreaga,Vegas Cats and Jay-Z),
Dont Put Me Out, Etcetera,Turn Back the Hands of Time,V.I.P.,
Did You Ever Think, Reality,Looking for Love,IM YOUR ANGEL
(Duet with Celine Dion), Money Makes The World( With Nas),AND
THE 3-TIME GRAMMY WINNER, I BELIEVE I CAN FLY. The Only tracks
that I consider FILLERS was:#6,#7 and the Flamenco Song #10.
Still a Strong and Great Double CD to haved in the R.Kelly
Collection.SO GO AND BUY IT!."

"R Kelly is constantly improving his art as is clearly evident in his growing inventory of projects. R. has not only displayed R Kelly's versatility but has also revealed how dynamic an artist he is. The R. is irrefutably a musical genius."
