Yahoo!: Write Me Back Review

R. Kelly: Write Me Back (RCA)

I'm not sure people give enough credit to the raw sensitivity R. Kelly has displayed during the course of his illustrious career--and here, for his 11th studio set, the award-winning singer/songwriter lays his emotions bare on the table for all to see! Unexpectedly focusing on a childhood incident in which the young Kelly penned a darkly confessional letter to the Easter Bunny--who'd brought him a wonderful basket filled with jellybeans and the like--and, despite his candor, would never receive a postal acknowledgment, Kelly relives his past trauma in near-stunning style. Highlights include "You Are My World," "Share My Love, " "Fool For You," and the at times heartbreaking "Believe That It's So," in which the singer boldly states that he has absolutely no qualms about ordering rabbit when at an exotic foreign restaurant! And the album cover? Well, at least his tie is straight!
