Album Review

Love Letter is not the R. Kelly album for those who love the singer for his freaky ways, his wince/chuckle-inducing lyrics. Apart from one line in “Lost in Your Love” — specifically “I wanna make love in Braille, while I’m feelin’ on you” — and perhaps “Taxi Cab,” Kelly’s tenth studio album is tame by his standard. It’s easily the least sexually charged album in his discography, ideal for those who admire him as a singer, arranger, and producer but tune out the fantastical come-ons. Packaged like a classic ‘60s album, a handful of songs are clearly designed to evoke the sound of that era; the pleading “Radio Message” and “When a Woman Loves,” as well as the pained “How Do I Tell Her?” and the bouncing “Love Is” (featuring K. Michelle), are too well-crafted and convincingly delivered to be heard as mere genre exercises. A handful of other highlights, with their lingering melodies, fluid basslines, and delicate flourishes, radiate warmth and recall late-‘70s and early-‘80s soft soul. Otherwise, on the likes of the steady-rocking “Number One Hit,” the sweet title song, and the lighthearted “A Love Letter Christmas,” Kelly is in contemporary mode but continues to keep it classy. A faithful cover of Michael Jackson's “You Are Not Alone,” an unlisted bonus track, closes it out.

Customer Reviews

Classic R&B album.

This album is off the chain! Its so very classy and not like that autone BS and people trying to sing that we hear on the Radio today. Thank you Kels for showing what Real R&B music sounds like.

AMAZING HE DID IT AGAIN

This album is a classic this is why I tell everybody this man is a living legend the true king of r&b...listen to this man you can't go wrong

He's Back

R. Kelly is back with this one, though it's a different style than he usually does, it's great. When A Woman Love's is my favorite track on this album and one of my favorite R. Kelly songs. Go ahead and get this album, you won't regret it.

Biography

Born: January 8, 1967 in Chicago, IL

Genre: R&B/Soul

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

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, soulman crooning, and funk, the most distinctive element of Kelly's music is its explicit carnality. He was able to make songs like "Sex Me," "Bump n' Grind," "Your Body's...
