* * 1/2 R. KELLY, "R. Kelly," Jive. Contemporary soul's most celebrated love man tries to reconcile the carnal impulses that have fueled his previous work with his spiritual longings. Kelly still spends most of his time--and is most convincing--in seduction mode.

* * * 1/2 BONNIE RAITT, "Road Tested," Capitol. From muscular workouts to shimmering ballads, the virtuosity and warmth that make Raitt one of rock's most compelling concert acts are palpable on this two-CD set.
