    without question he's gotten better & his voice has matured. but thats attributed to life experiences, longevity in the game & just plain ole talent. of course anybody in any field should get better w/time. honestly, I think he downplays to his competition. its simple to see that his writing & production skill has ALWAYS been there though. how else do you explain going from penning the likes of "You Are Not Alone" to a song like "Superman High." thats downplaying your skill to please a younger audience. (as well as showing versatility, & marketing to certain segments). I think he CHOOSES which work will be quality. Love Letter was a statement album for fickle ppl who thought he lost it just as well as having our own "oldies" to look back on in the future. which in turn, Kelly will have gotten better than today's sound.

    Yeah he's gotten better. Love Letter is full proof of that. I think what made Kells fall off was trying to make radio hit songs. Which everyone know you have to dumb it down (Lupe Fiasco) to do well

    Rob does 'dumb down' his music sometimes, but 'Love Letter' is a great example of him showing control. He was being very serious with this album, no joking, no dumbing down. The problem is people only want R. Kelly to be 1 thing, when in fact he is 1 Million. Alot of the people who grew up with 12 Play, are still living on 12 Play, and probably always will. He is too diverse, and versatile for most people to keep up with - 'the gift, and the curse'. He can also write songs which if he sings them people dont 'feel' but are somehow a hit if somoene else sings them.

    So if you asked alot of people they would say they prefer the Old R. Kelly but Rob now is on another level to what he was - no doubt about it.

    yea I would...look at his 1st album...his songs were considered so racy at that particular time...look at songs like You remind me of something and Sex Me....those songs were considered taboo for that time and who knew they would b huge radio hits....now i will say LL isn't really a radio friendly album imo...It's more artistic than anything...
