Barnes & Noble
R. Kelly is one of contemporary R&B and pop music's most visionary songwriters, producers, and vocalists, but like Marvin Gaye and Prince in their heyday, Kelly's most sustaining characteristic is his ability to cross-pollinate themes of sex, religion, romance, and materialism. And never has that skillful mix been more evident than on Kelly's latest sacred bump-'n'-grind odyssey, TP-2.Com which stands for 12 Play 2000. As on his solo debut 12 Play, the game is seduction and Kelly writes the rule book. Of the 18 songs, more than half are slow winding, self-explanatory odes to lust such as "The Greatest Sex," "Strip for You," and "Feelin' on Your Booty." But such swagger doesn't come without rich and often ...

R. Kelly is one of contemporary R&B and pop music's most visionary songwriters, producers, and vocalists, but like Marvin Gaye and Prince in their heyday, Kelly's most sustaining characteristic is his ability to cross-pollinate themes of sex, religion, romance, and materialism. And never has that skillful mix been more evident than on Kelly's latest sacred bump-'n'-grind odyssey, TP-2.Com which stands for 12 Play 2000. As on his solo debut 12 Play, the game is seduction and Kelly writes the rule book. Of the 18 songs, more than half are slow winding, self-explanatory odes to lust such as "The Greatest Sex," "Strip for You," and "Feelin' on Your Booty." But such swagger doesn't come without rich and often maddening conflict. On the introspective "I Decided," Kelly vows: "I'm turning in my player's card/ I'm retiring from the secret life I chose." Delving further into his tormented psyche, the crooner debates with God on "I Mean I Don't Mean It" and communes with his late mother and dead homies on the lead single "I Wish." From "TP-2" 's carnal quiver to the gospel-tinged euphoria of "The Storm Is Over Now," TP-2.Com is a cathartic excursion through the stormy soul of this generation's urban musical mastermind. Neo Brentacious
All Music Guide - Jason Birchmeier
R. Kelly tames his ambitions a bit on TP-2.Com, assembling a simple sequel to his classic 12 Play album from 1993 rather than another epic venture like his double-disc, all-bases-covered R. album from 1998. The straightforwardness is somewhat of a welcome endeavor. As breathtaking as had been R. -- an album that straddled the huge gap between the sort of radio pop associated with Celine Dion as well as the street rap of Jay-Z and Nas -- it also seemed too overblown at times, as if Kelly had something to prove during an era of double-disc epic rap albums. So to see him return to the simple singles approach of 12 Play is refreshing, particularly since he has plenty of singles to work with here, just as he had with TP-1. Kelly furthermore unleashes his singles -- "I Wish," a mass-appeal vocal pop number with an urban edge; "Fiesta," a Latin Invasion cash-in that aims for the dancefloor; and "Feelin' on Yo Booty," a whispery come-on for all the weak-kneed ladies and some of the mindful ones too -- with tailor-made remixes to ensure himself broad airplay. Only one of those remixes is here though, the "I Wish" one, so take heed. There's no Jay-Z-featuring remix of "Fiesta" and no up-tempo one of "Feelin' on Yo Booty," yet TP-2.Com is a strong album nonetheless, three steps ahead of practically every other non-rap urban album from 2000. It does seem like Kelly is coasting a bit here at times, though, particularly when you hold TP-2.Com up against its massive predecessor, but even when R's lounging, he's generally ahead of the pack.

    Makes you wanna "Bump & Grind"

    This CD is all that and some. This is one of the only cd's I care to listen to all the way through. It adds fellings and emotions; it characterizes and deeply articulates the meaning of "Music". This cd is truly one of the best; but hey so was the last one, and the one before that, and etc. If you're in the market for some real Bump than this is the one I recommend. Dave Hollister is the only exception I would add because these two are running "neck to neck".

    one of r. kelly best c.d.s

    R.kelly's C.D. is one of his best yet. His songs just make you want to get up and dance. His words in the song express romance, and the way life is now. His music comes from his heart and soul. Tp-2.com is a emotional and joyful C.D. that makes you think about how like is today. The rythm in Tp-2.com is slow. The beats in the c.d. are the best I heard in a long time. R. Kelly has came out with many singles from this C.D. If your into the emotional and slow tempo music in you will enjoy this C.D.

    This is the greatest R Kelly yet...

    If you don't have it, I have to ask... WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? I enjoy all the music. The style of music alone is the BOMB! Then when you add his awesome lyrics & that VOICE, you have the greatest CD! He has 2 new albums on the rise this year (2002); I don't know how he will top TP-2.com. But if you are a true Kelly fan, you know he'll find a way. BUY THE CD NOW:)

    I THINK

    I think that people should be able to get words for the songs that they want from the Songs that R Kelly sings. It should not be all this hassle and confusion to get them
