Synopsis

Amazon.com
R. Kelly is arguably one of R&B's most productive minds in years and the Chicago native creates music at a pace that few artists in any genre could keep up with. "Happy People/U Saved Me" serves as Kelly's own personal "Best of Both Worlds"--highlighting both the singer's love for stepping (a Midwest-based dance craze) and need for salvation. "Happy People" is the more upbeat of the two discs with Kelly taking on the persona of the Weatherman, a DJ on the fictional LOVE radio station. The album's title track and lead single is a perfect introduction to its infectious sound. Similarly, the midtempo groove of "Red Carpet (Pause, Flash)" will have stepping experts and novices headed straight to the dance floor. While the recurring stepping theme quickly becomes repetitive, you can't help but groove all the way through. Unfortunately, the same can't be said for "U Saved Me." The message-heavy disc sacrifices Kelly's raw talent for melodrama. Songs like "I Surrender" and "Prayer Changes," while expressing a sincere sentiment about believing in something greater than yourself, are a little overwhelming. That said, this disc's title track is a rousing musical tale of overcoming obstacles with the help of God--complete with a rising choir. In the end, "Happy People/U Saved Me," like most double albums, has both its highs and lows. --Rashaun Hall

Gospel Album - R. Kelly is a HYPOCRITE with no integrity
Diamond Jim | brisbane australia | 07/10/2008
(1 out of 5 stars)

"If you think R. Kelly has released a gospel album because he has been "saved" think again. Just check out the tracks from the follow up to this album to see the true R. Kelly. His album after this "TP3. Reloaded" features tracks with titles that include "Playa's Only", "Sex In The Kitchen", "Girls Go Crazy", "Hit It Till Morning", "Sex Weed". The man is a SLEAZE. He has released a gospel album because there's money in it, not because he believes in it, as his follow up album confirmed. I might be convinced that he was genuine on this gospel CD if he donated a portion of the profits to victims of paedophiles/sex crimes, but I'm sure that his way of apologising is faking a gospel CD & making a fat lot of money in the process. I mean how old was Aaliyah when they were first an (alleged)item. As for the music I would give it about 2 and a half stars as you can tell he didn't quite have his heart in it. It's not one of his better CD's & that's probably because an artist needs to be sincere about what they are singing. I find it a little patronising that he has tried to hoodwink the public with this gospel propaganda. Finally a question for Mr Kelly: COULD THE REAL R. KELLY STAND UP? Actually I think I'd rather he didn't."
