    R. Kelly proves that he's as prolific as he is talented on the two-disc set R., which not only culls together his most noteworthy and successful work, but is bursting with new tracks as well. Filled from start to finish with Kelly's unique blend of smooth vocal stylings and no-nonsense lyrical stance, this album also features the work of a few of his prominent friends--the opener, "Home Alone" sports a guest rap courtesy of Keith Murray, while "Money Makes The World Go Round" is graced by Nas.
    A more mainstream pairing is witnessed in the dramatic show stopper "I'm your Angel," which finds Kelly alongside superstar Celine Dion, but the collaboration which really makes its mark is "We Ride," which features Cam'Ron, Noreaga, Jay-Z and Vegas Cats in a veritable who's who of Hip Hop's brightest stars. As if all this weren't enough, the mega-hit "I Believe I Can Fly" is included for good measure. Newcomers to the world of R. Kelly will be attracted by the hits, but they're sure to stay for the instant classics and star-studded party jams which make up the rest of R.

    Spin (12/98, pp.180-182) - 7 (out of 10) - "...On his fourth album, the dude with the shades and shiny pate juggles street and schlock, Foxy Bown and Celine Dion, smoove-groove erotomania and anguished contrition. Prolonged exposure may leave you wondering if he isn't actually schizophrenic..."

    Q (12/99, p.118) - Stars (out of 5) - "...brooding, intense songs of regret and self-accusation over broken affairs, delivered in passionate, slowburning style....a tremendous accomplishment, a watershed for Kelly, who has never been so accessible, so memorable, so interesting..."
