    Trapped In The Closet saves it from being bad to being average.

    R.Kelly is unquestionably one of the greatest R&B singer to ever bless the mic and nothing's gonna change that. I've been a fan throughout his whole career, even when he be pissin on lil chicks and done lost his pedophilia mind pullin Whitney Houston in Bodyguard during Best Of Both Worlds tour with Hov. But as much as I admire him, dude seriously needs to expand his topics. R&B R.Kelly is unquestionably one of the greatest R&B singer to ever bless the mic and nothing's gonna change that. I've been a fan throughout his whole career, even when he be pissin on lil chicks and done lost his pedophilia mind pullin Whitney Houston in Bodyguard during Best Of Both Worlds tour with Hov. But as much as I admire him, dude seriously needs to expand his topics. R&B never seems to get any heated criticism for the overused and shallow lyrics about love, sex, and breakuptomakeup mumbo jumbo... while rap gets smashed for money, cash, hoes topics. Sex Weed, Sex In The Kitchen, and Love Is What We Making(Sex) just shows his limitation in choosin wider variety of topics. Dude seems to be runnin out of ideas, as well as his mind... callin this album the "best album" he's ever made on 106&Park and shit. I admit with his first single being "Trapped In The Closet" I was excited about what the album must be like, I thought he'd come out with some introspective, change the game type shit, but I was fooled. Despite his new approach puttin out a storytellin single with no hook on, rest of the album seems to followin his formulas yet again. Also, rest of the Trapped In The Closet parts are just humorous to say the least, nothing dramatic goin on there. Also, Game spittin same old shit from How We Do on Playaz Only(a weak club banger, compared to his previous hits) just pretty much explains what this whole album is like, recycled garbage. [b]Favorite Tracks:[/b] Put My T-Shirt On Trapped In The Closet Pt.1 Hit It Till The Morning Overall: 3/5 Should be lower but just for the fact that despite the same old shit and mediocrity on his album, he never seems to make too many unlistenable songs with garbage beats... overall though this album doesn't compare to his usual standards, lame is whatcha call it. P.S. What's up with all these raindrop beats he first started usin on Save Me? Stop that. Expand

  1. With one or two exceptions, all of these songs are second and third rate by his standard.

    Kelly's whole approach is familiar and threadbare. [3 Jul 2005]
