    Link above; intro:

    It’s at once preposterous and strangely plausible that R. Kelly, known for his numerous and brazen fetishes as much as his music, has now released two albums of meticulously tasteful soul. This is a man, after all, who sprays innuendo throughout the cosmos (on 2007’s Double Up alone: Jurassic Park; Skittles; sexasauri; the literal cosmos, including its most punnable planet); who released an umpteen-part sung-through soap opera with the sex and sensibilities of a college improv troupe; who announced an album called Black Panties and made fans drop theirs; who, even before his child-pissing scandal had mentioned, as part of a seduction, “giving [you] meteor showers.” But even that surprised nobody, because self-parody is simply what Kells does.
