Review

Heavy on selections from the 2000s and early 2010s, Pure…R&B Party is another four-disc compilation from Sony Music in the U.K., who pull strictly from the Sony-distributed catalog. Even so, there's a wide assortment of upbeat, pop-oriented R&B -- and R&B-flavored pop -- compiled here. Ciara's "Goodies," Monica's "So Gone," Mary Mary's "Shackles (Praise You)," and Raphael Saadiq's "Love That Girl" are among the highlights. Not much comes from the '90s, but the likes of R. Kelly & Public Announcement's "She's Got That Vibe," Aaliyah's R. Kelly-produced "Back & Forth," and Fugees' "Fu-Gee-La" don't sound the least bit out of place. ~ Andy Kellman
