The latest from the king of sex-mad R&B is a refreshingly tasteful foray into classic soul and PG lovemaking. On Love Letter, R. Kelly does falsetto valentines, flirty Motown bounce, even a Christmas remix of single ''Love Letter'' that involves zero funny business under the mistletoe. The old horndog does make one hilariously graphic appearance on ''Taxi Cab,'' which rivals Don Draper’s backseat escapade from last season’s Mad Men for 2010’s stickiest crosstown ride. B
