Product Description

Amazon.com

Perhaps R. Kelly's brushes with the law have caused him to turn down his love light, since his seventh album Chocolate Factory takes scrupulous pains to show an idealized high-minded face of love, eschewing his usual steamy cocktail of raunchy lust and replacing it with a sweet, winsome romanticism. "I'll Never Leave," is a wistful valentine, while "The Heart of a Woman," is embarrassingly empathetic to the plight of the feminine kind and is hardly the kind of fare that one expects from Marvin Gaye's heir apparent. Despite his real life racy escapades, Kelly is at his best musically when he's an unrepentant bad boy but he doesn't even show any grit until "Been Around the World," his confessional duet with a rasping Ja Rule, the fretful bluesy "You Made Me Love You," and "Ignition," a paean to parking. Despite "Ignition"’s first line, "Girl, please let me stick my key in your ignition, babe" it's rather tame by the standards Kelly has set on his earlier discs. "Chocolate Factory" also includes 6 bonus tracks from Loveland the album that was slated for a 2002 release, but was ostensibly shelved after it was rampantly bootlegged on the Internet. Despite the disc's soft focus, Kelly is at the height of his vocal powers, and once he weans himself from the gooey sentimentality and returns to his persona of a smooth seductive operator he'll once again be an artist to be reckoned with. --Jaan Uhelszki

5.0 out of 5 stars 1 or 2 stars ? You're kidding. October 7, 2003
Format:Audio CD
First of all if you're going to review the album and say nonsense like " I think Afro American's are supporting him as a corner stone of hope! I am Afro american and I listen so many different types of music that R Kelly can be easily forgotten"
or ....
"if it wasnt for the song Ignition remix .i would have rated this album a zero" .
How about if you say something weak like....
"if this album was considered a comedy record, i would give it 5 stars"
Not forgetting this [stuff] ... And if you think Igniton is the only hit on that CD then you probably haven't listened to real R'n'B. I suggest you stick to Britney Spears.
Back to the TOPIC at hand.
This is an amazing piece of work. The definition of a true R'n'B artist is one who can take it back in the day to when our parents were doing their thang and bring it to the new age of hip hop and R'n'B all in one album. R Kelly fits that description. No other artist does it the way he does and Chocolate Factory is the evidence.I love all the songs because they have their different qualities. None of them are the same (with the exception of Step In The Name...). Right now my song is the remix to Step In The Name of Love.
My advice is to all the haters is that if you have the ear to hear good music then use it. If your ear is somehow designed to censor off stuff like The Pied Piper then you might as well go deaf.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rrah's Best Ever! February 24, 2003
Format:Audio CD
R. KELLY- CHOCOLATE FACTORY
Ok let's get this out the way. I have an R. Kelly bias. Dude is the best R&B talent we've experienced since Babyface. Unchallenged in the biz. That being said I never compare his projects to others out right now. It's not fair because his talents surpass them immensely. So I compare it to his previous works. Once again that being said "Chocolate Factory" is his best CD ever. That's right I said it. Better than 12 Play. While 12 Play is his all time classic this CD shows his talents more than any other ever has. The limited edition double CD is also one of the best original(not greatest hits) double CD's in the last 15 years. He mixed in some cuts from his previous unreleased CD "LoveLand" and came out with a remarkable product. This CD has so many soul music influences it's not even funny. A review will not do this project justice but I'll make a definite attempt. I have a comment about all 23 cuts..
Track 1- Chocolate Factory- Nice typical Rrah track. Nice midtempo beat and lyrically comparing his woman to "candy"
Track 2- Step In The Name of Love- This song is one from the "Loveland" project. Nice mellow beat that plays on the Chicago "Step" craze. Great 70's song. He shows some serious versatility here. I love the dance "instructions" at the end.
Track 3- Heart Of A Woman- Greatness! A dedication to women and their long suffering. These songs are R Kelly at his best. Great lyrics. This is the first of several good slow jams on this CD. W O M A N!
Track 4- I'll Never Leave- Three words women love to hear. Another good slow jam. The breakdown is great on this song.
Track 5- Been Around The World- This song features Ja Rule and actually is pretty good.

5.0 out of 5 stars He does it again .... March 2, 2003
Format:Audio CD
When i heard this CD was going to be release i already had in my mind i was going to get this CD despite all the legal trouble that Mr. Kelly is having as of lately. A huge fan of his music since his debut Born In The 90's. Mr. Kelly returns with his most personal and his most complete album of his career. Despite his problems of late he went in to the studio and created an album that his fans will simply love.
Chocolate Factory concentrates more on romance rather than the explicit sexual overtones that his previous albums even though Chocolate Factory has it share of Mr. Kelly returning to his 12 Play , TP-2 form on such tracks as the hit single " Ignition " and " Ignition remix, " Imagine That".. Chocolate Factory also show his other musicial influences on such tracks as Step In The Name Of Love , You Knock Me Out both tracks have heavy Marvin Gaye influences. One of my favorite tracks on the CD You Made Me Love Ya which borrows the guitar riff of Al Green's Classic Love and Happiness the song certainly have an old school soul feel to it.
Love Land Bonus CD after one listen to this 6 track CD it makes you want to hear more of what was suppose to have been his follow up to TP-2. Some of his most sincere soulful work can be found on this disc . That is no more evident than on the track " Heaven I Need A Hug" finds Mr. Kelly trying to find peace with himself as well addressing the media , family, friends, fans about his fans concerning his recent troubles. The song is very sincere.

4.0 out of 5 stars R. Kelly is Back March 12, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Chocolate Factory is a great album. The best songs on this cd is Heart of the Woman,Ignition(remix),Showdown-feat.Ron Isley.This cd is a tight cd but only one problem,the cd is edited in some parts.I got the only version I saw availiable.I know Kelly is going through personal trials and the record companies might be a little afraid of releasing something that might offend someone.Kelly work should have been released unedited or have a choice like the rest of the entertainment world.I hate songs with gaps in it but ican get over that because it is a strong cd and if you are a true R.Kelly fan a true fan of REAL fan r&b you will buy this cd.

For all his baggage, R. Kelly should be considered R&B royalty. Chocolate Factory is perfect for listening, dancing and doing other things.
