r. kelly, "happy people. pederast or no, he's lock-stepped into a groove; "happy people" is his first tune in ages that is satisfying unremixed (though, detractors may argue that "happy people" is little more than a "step in the name of love" remix). it's amazing that he can create music that's so light and airy, exuding such unfettered joy, when he's in the position he's in (which, admittedly, got better today). what's nickelback's excuse, then, for making such onerous (as opposed to onanist) rock? and, yes, i suppose i was wrong about them. who would have thought that, four months after its release, it was too early to call "someday" a stiff?
