Die Welt: The Buffet Review

Many fine words for the most beautiful thing in the world

The Walt Whitman of the Soul: R. Kelly has again recorded an album, his 13th The music is as usual. But he reveals himself to "The Buffet" as a great poet of love and carnal desire.

All people have their lives long believed the fact that the Eskimos would know most of the words for snow. As this summer linguist at the University of Glasgow proudly proclaimed, the Scots themselves could describe snow with at least 421 words (including "flindrikin" and "feefle"), and are therefore the leading language group of Schneebeschreiber, collapsed a world for many.

Similarly, it will give us now while listening to "The Buffet", the thirteenth album of soul singer R. Kelly going. Previously it was musicological consensus that the Bochum band The cashier uses most euphemisms for sex. But R. Kelly changes everything. In the 13 new songs he has actually found nearly 500 words for birds.

Now, it is not wrong to sing about sex. Above all, in English is allowed. And Soul was always, in addition to the music of the civil rights movement, also a music between the civic movements. "When a Man ​​Loves a Woman" by Percy Sledge, for example, of course, was wonderful, and the loud sigh Donna Summers in "Love to Love You Baby" is one, once heard, never back out of the head.

Good evening, ladies

R. Kelly songs you will never forget so quickly. This has less to his music than to himself and his life theme. Although it initially surprised that R. Kelly has now also discovered the Plug-in autotune. You know, the vocal effect of Cher's "Believe" in 1998 and of all that now R & B ie, on the voice. It also is not on the sleazy club beats. And certainly not. To the collaborations with such dubious musicians like Lil Wayne, Jeremih or Wizkid No, it is solely to the brilliant essays by R. Kelly.

R. Kelly, one of the biggest songs and soundtracks of all time wrote with "I Believe I Can Fly", namely for basketball animation film "Space Jam", where Michael Jordan in a game of golf with Bill Murray through a hole in the square to the Looney -Tunes country is drawn, is, otherwise you can not call it, today a respectable poet laureate. So is "The Buffet" with a spoken-word performance opened the "The Poem" is modest. From Walt Whitman of the Soul.

"Good evening ladies, shall we start with hors d'oeuvres? / I can tell your body's been lacking the plater of satisfaction your body deserves / We have reservations and I'm so glad That We're here / Cause I'll be toasting your juices all night like cheers. " You have to soak up first, of course. For all the complexity of the possible interpretations, but is then relatively quickly clear that R. Kelly Buffet attracts less with all-you-can-eat than with the oral pleasures of love.

In resonant space of our brain

Of course, one wonders whether this really is enough for an album. The answer is a resounding no. And yet the great musician limited a topic on this. On "The Poem" follows "Poetic Sex", which begins with the obvious line "My sex is poetic / I'm gonna get you mad pregnant". In the play "Marching Band" it goes well, you guessed it, not a chapel on Independence Day. Of course, it goes back to R. Kelly's relationship with the woman as such. "She blow me like a tuba / I beat it up like a snare drum / That girl make me want it / Cause everytime we in the bedroom / it be sounding like a marching band," it says in the chorus.

But probably there but a second level, which can easily be very difficult to decipher. Even Schopenhauer's most famous saying goes well known: "The genitals are the soundboard of the brain." As is a saying that the Germans and not understand Soul again.

USA Today: The Buffet Review

R. Kelly feasts on love, again, with 'The Buffet'

"Good evening, ladies. Shall we start with hors d'oeuvres?" R. Kelly asks on The Poem, the spoken-word intro to his new album, The Buffet (three out of ****) out Dec. 11. A smorgasbord of screamingly obvious double entendres follows, interrupted at one point by sound effects that may make you giggle, or wince. And we haven't even gotten to the metaphorical binge that is the opening track, titled Poetic Sex.

We should expect no less from this R&B veteran, who as a songwriter and performer has made sexual healing his stock in trade, even if Kelly's biggest successes include G-rated hits such as I Believe I Can Fly and the late Michael Jackson's You Are Not Alone, and his personal history is marked with accusations of misdeeds. Happily, The Buffet functions as more than a showcase for his wordplay—or play of other kinds.

With its fluid vocals, ingratiating hooks and sinuous grooves, the album sees Kelly reaffirming his place as one of R&B's great romancers. Sometimes, he meets his match: "The thing I like about you is, baby, you are freaky, too," Jhené Aiko croons sweetly on the undulating Let's Make Some Noise.

Other notable guests include Lil Wayne and Jeremih, who both appear on the restless, crisply syncopated Switch Up, and Juicy J, featured on the witty, horns-laced Marching Band, on which Kelly sings, "I know the neighbors can feel that bass."

Those neighbors are referenced and disregarded again on the blithe, funky Wake Up Everybody (which isn't a cover Teddy Pendergrass' song with Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes, though Kelly likely wouldn't shy away from a comparison). The retro-soul vibe gets deeper on Get Out Of Here With Me, as Kelly veers from lust to lush romance.

Kelly's music can be less interesting when pledging love more earnestly, as he and Ariirayé both do on Wanna Be There. The spacious, eerily twinkling Let's Be Real Now starts at the other extreme, with Kelly and Tinashe's characters hurling accusations at each other.

But then, Kelly apologizes gorgeously on All My Fault, his nimble tenor shimmering over a tender but breezy arrangement, before throwing a Backyard Party soundtracked by swaggering guitars and frolicking strings.

"No one's got hatin' in their heart," Kelly sings on the latter track. And as he nears age 50, with thirteen albums in the bag and his career strong as ever, he's a man seemingly without a care in the world.
