It’s “business as usual in the candlelit, silk-sheeted house” of R. Kelly, said Greg Kot in the Chicago Tribune. Expect “sex in the morning, sex all day,” and more of the same steamy R&B on Untitled, the 10th album from the smooth talker. Even though Kelly has spent most of this decade under a “cloud of legal suspicion” (he was acquitted of child-pornography charges last year), he’s continued to churn out carnal come-ons. Call it focus, call it formula, but the man is consistent, said Jon Pareles in The New York Times. Kelly polishes his routine throughout Untitled. On “Pregnant,” he shows his quasi-faithful side, crooning, “Girl, you make me want to get you pregnant.” On “Be My #2,” he unapologetically tells a lady that he plans to keep her on the side. All perviness aside, Untitled “hits the sweet spot,” said Ken Capobianco in The Boston Globe. Even if Kelly still has nothing but sex on the brain, his album is an “expertly executed suite of songs.”
