AllMusic Review by

Tell Me is a rock-solid, yet remarkably different, follow-up to Kelly's engaging Roots Can Be Anywhere. The inventive singer strides with personality through energetic grooves "Patty Cake" and "Making It to the Top," while assuaging with candor on the longing ballad "Once in a While." With more tracks and shorter lengths, the set is quicker to get through than its predecessor -- which, in this case, makes the listener appreciate it even more. Jurgen Koppers' production is slick yet authentic, and the material he's working with has a strong melodic structure. Yet another limited European release, Tell Me will most definitely prove to be worth the hunt for all fans of Kelly and meritorious disco.
