  • Summary: Apparently no longer trapped in the closet, the crooner enlists Young Jeezy, Snoop Dogg, Ludacris and T.I. to help enliven this upbeat successor to 2005's 'TP.3 Reloaded.'

  1. It’s the most consistently entertaining and lasting of R. Kelly’s albums yet.
  2. Those lyrics may seem slightly ridiculous, but between them and his thinly veiled metaphors for his need to perform cunnilingus (Sweet Tooth), Kelly's originality and talent for making instant club hits is un-fucking-deniable.
  3. Kelly routinely cooks up killer grooves that make his exuberantly stupid lyrics and hackneyed song concepts seem strangely charming.
  4. This is a maddeningly inconsistent collection, with more misses than hits – though Kelly’s best moments do go some way towards atoning for his flaws.
  5. This album piles on the bump 'n' grind.
  6. It's a very sexually explicit R. Kelly who greets fans on this outing. [2 Jun 2007]
  7. Unsaved by anything resembling an acceptable musical hook, Kelly's lyrics are uniformly dumb.
