Release Notes

Recording information: The Chocolate Factory, Chicago, IL.
Photographer: Randee St. Nicholas.
Arranger: R. Kelly.
Previewed via the classy throwback ballad "When a Woman Loves," an instant R&B chart hit, Love Letter follows R. Kelly's Epic compilation by only a couple months. Like "Loves," much of Love Letter -- technically Kelly's 11th studio album -- is inspired by R&B of the `50s and `60s.


Rolling Stone - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[O]n 'When a Woman Loves,' a retro-soul ode to fidelity, Kelly's gritty intensity evokes Wilson Pickett."<BR>Entertainment Weekly (p.80) - "LETTER is a refreshingly tasteful foray into classic soul..." -- Grade: B<BR>Uncut (p.84) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[W]ell-written R&B ballads which pay tribute to his soul heroes, best of all being the Stevie Wonder-ish 'Just Can't Get Enough'."<BR>Billboard (p.72) - "LOVE LETTER is a relatively chaste retro-soul set....Given Kelly's absurdly effortless melodic flair, the result certainly satisfies."<BR>Pitchfork (Website) - "The music itself, a gorgeously rendered tribute to a certain swathe of R&B history, is praiseworthy enough, as is Kelly's frequently ignored voice."
