5.0 out of 5 stars "How Do I Tell Her?", December 14, 2010
This review is from: Love Letter (Audio CD)
This is a great & fantastic CD release by the talented, prolific singer-songwriter & King of R n' B, Robert Kelly, titled, "Love Letter". This Great CD opens with "Love Letter (Prelude)", a beautiful & soulful 'al cappella' track, voicing being greatful for the support he received during his recent troubles with the law & as well as more about the great music in this CD. "Love Letter" is the next great track : great drum kit sound, laid-back track with great vocals (title track). "Love Letter Christmas" is great remix of the title track. "Number One Hit" is another great track (electro-R n' B track, great bass/drums combination & great clear vocals). Other great tracks include "Just Can't Get Enough" (soul sound & soulful vocals), "Radio Message" (Great vocals & very persuasive lyrics, singer pleading very convincingly, "Baby come back"), "Love Is" (great vocals & harmonies, featuring K. Michelle) & "You Are Not Alone" (a hidden track on my CD, great effort & interpretation by Robert Kelly of the classic song he wrote for Michael Jackson, a well fitting tribute to the great fallen musician. His vocals don't fully match Michael Jackson's, but is nevertheless a great effort, tribute & his own interpretation of the this great song). Good tracks include "Not Feelin' The Love", "Taxi Cab", "Just Like That" (great guitar intro & bass/drum combination) & "Music Must Be A Lady" (great orchestral intro, the track starts quite greatly but does fail to keep its greatness as it goes on). "Lost In Your Love" is a solid track/gem : a beautiful grand piano sound, fantastic melody, wonderful bass/drum combination, great chorus, harmonies & lyrics. He declares "Baby tonight I wanna be lost in your love", very convincingly. "When A Women Loves" is another solid track/gem : probably inspired by Percy Sledge's classic, "When A Man Loves A Woman". The song has a beautiful melody, great high pitched vocals & persuasive lyrics. He proclaims a woman, "She loves for real... She fills my soul". "How Do I Tell Her?" is a masterpiece of a song : beautiful orchestral background/base track, very melodical, 'heartbreaking' lyrics & vocals. The song also has well matched rhythm guitar, grand piano & a nice saxophone near the end. The singer fading singing, "Bye bye baby...bye bye baby...", what a gem of a song! This is my favourite track from this fantastic CD & hence the title of my review. This great CD has no weak track to really talk of. On overall, this is a great & fantastic CD release by the talented, Chicago (IL) born, Robert Kelly, a highly recommended listening. The King of R n' B is back with a bang! A great early Christmas gift to his loyal fans!

Most people don't know this but R. Kelly actually wrote "You Are Not Alone" for Michael.

The only song I didn't care for was his cover of Your Are Not Alone

This is a fantastic CD release, I agree with you that he has been releasing a lot of material but not quite tight (the man is very talented), but the good news is : he is back with a bang! Thanks NPMusicman for your thoughtful comments.

I agree. He wrote it but MJ did it so much better

I first heard "When a Woman Loves" on my car radio last month, I blasted my radio. I was amazed at the words and the feeling that R Kelly put into this song. I am 62 years old and I have heard a lot of music. This takes me back to the love songs in my heyday. This is true R&B to the soul. I have purchased the cd and have played it over and over again. My husband also listened to it. I love "How Do I Tell Her," beautiful....My grown children are shocked when I told them I purchased this cd. My husband and I can dance to this easily..

Okay tracks include "Not Feelin' The Love", "Taxi Cab", "Just Like That".....ARE YOU KIDDIN ME!? 3 of my favs. "Taxi Cab" feels like a 2010 Dirty Diana. "Not Feeling the Love" was written exclusively for MJ. "Just Like That" is a great track in itself. When you sing something thats relevant it last foreva. a great classic feel good album
