    It is a really great album, there's actually not one song on it that sounds like a filler.

    I definitely support both GB and Exit's thoughts - a classic album, with not a single filler. There are too many adjectives and superlatives I have for what he has done right here. We had fears about him working with other writers/producers but they have all been dispelled, with 1 foul swoop.

    It was very interesting to hear his comments on Power 92, and even though they were very subtle:

    "I didnt want to seem like a knucklehead"

    In reference to the situation with working other folk, ultimately I think the magnitude of those words was quite large - as we can see here, with him returning to 'having fun with his music'. Reading between the lines it was 1 of the clearest indications that a) it was more of a record company driven move and b) as Mistermaxxx said, he heard Rob had become bored.

    But I digress...

    From the awesome acappella intro, Rob brings that fun and humour. Moving on to 'Love Letter' he comes in so fresh and clean with that feel good Stevie Wonder vibe, but with a modern day twist. In fact I think that's 1 of the biggest things about the album', cuz when we heard it was going to be 50's/60's themed the feeling was that it would sound like a throwback, but incredibly despite paying homage to the greats of yesteryear somehow the musical Genius that is R. Kelly has been able to make everything sound like it belongs in 2010...

    If there was ever a statement to say RnB was back, then here it is.

    The production on this junk, is absolutely crazy - and I mean crazy! Its been a while since I have heard back to back R.O.B productions and the way that he has pieced everything together is quite simply perfection for me. Between the end of 'Love Letter' and 'Number One Hit' there is like a whole minute of just instrumental - melodic heaven! Then you have how he uses similar horns on 'Radio Message' rolling into 'When a Woman Loves'...

    Please dont get me started on 'Not Feelin' The Love' - I told My Sister 2nd R, that joint was Rob's ode to 'Remember The Time'. The bridge and the transition of the instrumental, how it kinda speeds up and gets even funkier - wild!

    The last 1 minute 10 seconds of 'Just Cant Get Enough', the harmonies are out of this world. Marvin would be lookin' down on Rob with pride for those right thurr. 'Love Is', well that screams feel good video. 'Just Like That' is 'Just Too Smooth'. 'A Love Letter Christmas' - anybody notice how the freestyle kinda sounds like the 'Sugar Hill Gang'? Kinda like how he gives a nod to Bootsy Collins at the beginining of 'Happy Summertime', he's giving a nod to Sugar Hill Gang here.

    As peops have said 'How Do I Tell Her' is like 'Turn Back The Hands of Time 2010' - so maybe that was Rob remixing himself like he said he would do with Donnie at some stage? Similar thing with the metaphorical masterpiece 'Music Must Be A Lady' aka 'You 2010'. Hidden Content

    Anyways, Im talking way too much right now but maybe that's cuz Ive been quiet for so long?

    Big D - I see you Brother.

    Stef - You know how we do, thanks for reaching out to me.

    Andy - Ask About Me B.R.O!

    Sister Ricky - 'Aint nothing change, aint nothing change'. Hidden Content

    Sister Helena - Much Love.

    Rey - Nice Hair!

    Dizl & Perch - sincere apologies for my lack of response.

    K.R.X aka My Boy P - Let's Get It!

    Exit - Lovin' your work!

    Miquel - Keep doing what it do.

    Chelle - Let's move forward into the positive.

    Rob - Thank you for this amazing 'Love Letter'.

    Lost in Your Love and Music Must Be a Lady are a couple of standout tracks from many on this album. This is what we've all been waiting for from him. Is it me or there's been more promo for this album than anything leading up to Untitled.

    Oh shoot, I just heard the full version of 'You Are Not Alone'!

    Alot of folk had reservations of Rob re-doing it (including myself somewhat) but I dont think anyone will be disappointed.

    Rob starts the song:

    "In loving memories of my hero...MJ...forever..."

    Its big things out there, there are actually moments when I think its Michael. Los Da Mystro came massive on the production too - that is if Rob still went with the version he produced, it does sound like Carlos though. Whatever, whoever, the song is extremely large out there...

    REAL TALK!

    Edit:

    Its 100% a Los Da Mystro production, and Im not sure but I think Rob may have added some words - dont quote me on that though. Hidden Content
