    Default Definitive.com 200 R's double album from 98

    i just was on the Rock&Roll hall of Fame's Definitive 200.com list of albums that are must have's&R.kelly's double album from 1998 was selected at 122 of all time must have. this is a helluva statement coming from the Rock&Roll Hall of Fame since we don't always feel the Man gets all of his due Artistic Praise. this is Great. i bet cash money in 10 years that R will easily make the Rock&Roll of Fame. the R Double Album is still tight. Great feat for R.

    thanks for postin this
    Psychopaths have a Hidden Content and grossly inflated view of their own Hidden Content and importance, a truly astounding egocentricity and sense of entitlement, and see themselves as the center of the universe, justified in living according to their own rules.

    Psychopaths show a stunning lack of concern for the effects their actions have on others, no matter how devastating these might be. They may appear completely forthright about the matter, calmly stating that they have no sense of guilt, are not sorry for the ensuing pain, and that there is no reason now to be concerned.

    Many of the characteristics displayed by psychopaths are closely associated with a profound lack of empathy and inability to construct a mental and emotional "facsimile" of another person.

    Psychopaths seem to suffer a kind of emotional poverty that limits the range and depth of their feelings. At times they appear to be cold and unemotional while nevertheless being prone to dramatic, shallow, and short-lived displays of feeling.
    Obligations and commitments mean nothing to psychopaths.

    But here is the crux: Psychopaths don't feel they have psychological or emotional problems, and they see no reason to change their behavior to conform with societal standards they do not agree with.

    thats good but i still think the album isnt that good and filled with filler tracks....

    i think Happy People/ Usaved me is a much better album....

    nice to see hes getting recognised. one day people are going to miss his presence in the musical world........

    12 Play in R&B over the past Decade and change is arguably the most important release or easily top 2 or 3 IMO. on the Male side He is number 1 with 12 Play. as for Usher: they had to have factored in Record Sales&things. Album went Diamond,but in terms of Quality,IMO it was Hit&Miss at best. a Average album.

    Thanks for posting maxxx. You stay on point.

    R.album was an ambitious project that saw the light after the long break from R.Kelly album, producing for industry vets, and follwing success of I Believe I Can Fly, I think. You can feel the confidence acquired through the previous years. I hope he continues to make adventurous albums. Albums that not only take a lot of money,but also time, spirit, soul, etc. These days more albums got rushed and leave impression that an album ain't a body of wokr, but a poor collection of this and that and you could read a feeling of insecurity about the short-term profit and appeal. This is not a simple problem nor just artists' faults, tho. Esp. vets like kellz should show that an album is not just an industry product all the time, but could be an art form against all odds in the music industry today. I believe many other folks, not just fans like us, expect that from him.

    Thanks for posting maxxx. IMO 'R.' is Kells masterpiece at this point in time... it just touches every base and expands beyond R&B. There are a few misses but on the most part for an album that runs 140 mins long I think you would be hard pressed to find one that plays as consistently brilliantly as 'R.'

    Like I said IMO this album is his masterpiece so far - not his most influential (12 Play) or even my personal favourite (TP2) but like Helena was getting at it was the album where you don't feel he was constrained by the industry or anything at all, it was as if he said "I'm just going to go and put whatever I feel like making on this album" and he didn't hold back. I mean Jay-Z, Nas, Foxy Brown and Celine Dion on the same album? Who else could do that? Nobody. What are the chances of that happening again? 0.

    Kells still has yet to make (or release) his definitive album but IMO at the moment 'R.' is it
