"On his website, Kelly wrote that 'Love Letter' represents his attempt to give the entire world a hug. Mission accomplished. 'Now I'm going to tell you who I am and what I'm looking for,' Kelly sings, even though at this point, the public knows exactly who he is and what he's looking for. And yet we love him all the same."

"For his tenth album, R. Kelly programmes his own decades-spanning radio station of R&B's greatest bits... his decision to ditch the club and retreat to a more conventionally romantic setting allows him to let his voice take centre-stage, which is where it should have been all along."

"His tuneless lovemaking should make just about any prospective sex partner wish they were deaf."
