I've been looking forward to this album ever since I heard the Happy People single. The R promised a two disc album with one disc dedicated to stepping music, and the other dedicated to a spiritual vibe. All I can say is that he most certainly delivered the goods. I find this to be an amazing album. With each new project, Kelly rises to new levels. This is a mature feel-good album that can be played around people of all ages. I praise R. Kelly for providing music that doesn't offend, degrade, or serve to defeat those who are faced with socioloical limitations. Disc one is smooth, care free, and fun. Disc two is inspiring, insightful, and uplifting. This is an album that will mark a place in time for everyone who is drawn to the creative touch of one of the greatest R & B artists of this generation.

R. Kelly released two albums, Happy People and U Saved Me, so here are my views on both.

R. Kelly - Happy People (Jive, 2004)

This album capitalizes on the "stepping" dance craze that's popular in the Midwest, moer specifically his hometown, Chicago. But if you're not from the Midwest, you'll probably think that this album sounds like a lot of "Step in the Name of Love" remixes. The title track is the highlight here and most of the other tracks follow the same formula (some even use the same beat). "If I Could Make the World Dance" and the ballad "The Greatest Show on Earth" break up the sameness nicely. Happy People is designed more to play for a stepping party than to listen at home. -EJR

R. Kelly - U Saved Me (Jive, 2004)

U Saved Me shows R.'s spiritual side. Things start off interestingly with "3-Way Phone Call" (featuring Kelly Price and Kim Burrell). This sung conversation between all of them contains moving lyrics but if you recall past R. Kelly-penned "conversational songs" like The Isley Brothers' "Contagious", "Busted", Kelly Price's "Friend of Mine" remix or Nivea's "Laundromat", this may sound like a tired gimmick. The title track is the best song as R. plays three different people giving their testimonies; unfortunately, "Prayer Changes" sounds more like "U Saved Me Part II". While the rest of the tracks run tepidly, "Spirit" becomes the only other highlight. -EJR

Conclusion: While neither album is better or worse than the other and while no song is weak, both albums feel formulaic because of the same songs being heard over and over again. More themes or even trimming down to a single disc would make this release stronger. R. Kelly's last double-album, 1998's R., suffered from repetition and this one is no different.

R. Kelly's "Happy People/U Saved Me" is pretty straightforward in concept: one disc is filled with upbeat positive messages, and the other is inspirational, with themes of salvation, redemption, and faith. We'll start with the first disc, since that's the better of the two. On "Happy People," Kelly takes on the role of a DJ in the fictitious LOVE radio station. Here, we get songs like "Ladies Night," "If," and "Love Street," which all have hooks strong enough to sink Jaws. Easily, every other jam could be released as a single and has "hit" written all over it. On "U Saved Me," Kelly gets his praise on, serving up a platter of gospel-themed tunes that hold up, even when the disc occasionally has lyrics that resort to inspirational cliches we've all heard on Sunday mornings. Kelly Price, Kim Burrell, and Maurice Mahon join the big R on "3-Way Phone Call," one of the better songs on "You Saved Me," while Kelly also holds up on "I Surrender" and another favorite of mine, "Prayer Changes." Unfortunately, he does resort to melodrama on "Leap of faith," the disc's one true misfire. Still, the virtues outweigh the flaws, and "Happy People/U Saved Me" comes out a winner. His current troubles may make it difficult for some (myself included) to justify buying his records, but his latest double disc reminds us how talented R. Kelly really is.

WOW, I was amazed at how good this album turned out. I expect a lot from R Kelly since he is, in my opinion, the best singer of our time and arguable the best of all time. Yes I said it, the best of all time. I knew little about this album in the coming weeks that it was to be released. When I recieved the album, one week before it was to be released, I discovered that it was a double album and I got very happy since I was expecting a single CD album. The first album is called "Happy People" and the second is called "U Saved Me".

What I noticed about "Happy People" immediatly, was that this album is an album for "the steppers". Just think of songs such as the lead single, "Happy People" and "Step In The Name of Love Remix" off the Chocolate Factory. I would classify this album as a feel good album, since it has more uptempo and happy songs, with the exception of "Greatest Show On Earth", which a slower type song. R Kelly is simply magnificent on this album. Every track from start to finish is very good. Although all the songs are good, songs that really caught my attention are

"If"

"Steppin Into Heaven"

"Intro(Weatherman)"

"Red Carpet"

"Love Signals"

"Happy People"............just to name a few.

It is very hard to decide but my favorite song that has been on my mind for days is "If"

I believe that all the "ol school" R Kelly fans are going to be happy with this album too. I'm talking about those fans who really love his slow and heart felt songs. Right from the start of the second disc "U Saved Me", I got the vibe that this album was going to be an album be just that, more slow and heart felt songs. The second single off this "Happy People/U Saved Me" album was "U Saved Me", which is a very good song.
