Breakthrough RnB Musical Storytelling - broken in all the right ways...
15 January 2006 | by mkarauSee all my reviews

The first 12 chapters contain some of the most creative and innovative RnB video footage to date, as R Kelly's narration and vocals relate a poetic drama, constituting the pinnacle of self-deprecating nonsensical RnB music video production.

This piece stands alone. It's a song about nothing, forming the soundtrack and dialogue of a movie, not surprisingly, about nothing. It's outlandish, unbelievable, uses convenient yet impossible plot twists, and could be seen, quite frankly, as vulgar.

However, this viewer can't get enough. It's a bold move and a fresh take on RnB by a man whose public image has suffered in recent years. This re-establishes R Kelly as an Artist and is accessible to a viewer who can appreciate witty commentary on a genre by a creator from within that genre. Broken in all the right ways!
