R. Kelly, 'Untitled' (Jive)

Critical Mass
Label: Jive

by Mikael Wood

Last year's remarkably lewd 12 Play: Fourth Quarter may go down (so to speak) as one of the great unreleased albums in pop history. Fortunately, several of its prime cuts, including the silky-smooth "Go Low," surface on Untitled, which contains no shortage of fresh raunch. "Bangin' the Headboard" and "Pregnant" (as in "You make me wanna get you...") are bawdy even by Kelly's considerable standards. Elsewhere, he apes The-Dream ("Number One") and, perhaps most perversely, the French disco-house scene ("Be My #2").
