2.0 out of 5 stars Poor 1 Feb 2012
Format:Audio CD
As a long time admirer of Mr O'Neal a new album by the man is always something i take note of, unfortunately the last 15 yrs or so have not been great musically for the big man and this album isn't gonna change that opinion anytime soon. Whilst i don't expect to see Alex revisit the halcyon days of his 80's and early 90's Jam and Lewis peak, i do expect something professional and well made?

The main problem with this album is the awful production! For a start the songs sound like they were made cheaply in 1993, they have a terribly dated feel to them, i like a good retro throwback but not something as poorly done as this, the songs too are largely bland and forgettable, though "Minnesota Shuffle" is pretty darn catchy i will admit! the same however can't be said for the rest of the album which is instantly forgettable in every way!

It actually pains me to see how far the great man has fallen, vocally he still has it but he needs to hook up with some good songwriters and producers again if he wants to be taken seriuosly as a credible artist. At least the cover this time isn't as cheap looking as his last effort, so at least that's something i guess!

I'm a die hard Alex fan and even i can't recommend this i'm afraid.

3.0 out of 5 stars in defence of 3 Sep 2010
By kevin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
waited a long time for alex to release something new , and though I seem to be in the minority on here , I really like this album ! To me it sounds like a fun tribute to his early classic albums - nothing like today's "R'n'B artists sound.
It isn't "hearsay" of course , but why would it be the same album? ( you can always listen to "all mixed up" if you want that.)
Not his greatest work , but a fun workout nonetheless

5.0 out of 5 stars I have my own five questions? 24 Sep 2010
By I. Connor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have always loved Alex's music. He is unique, original and very much alive! He works hard to produce worthy albums and recognises the journey in his life and his music - this album is a form of biography and some fun thrown in for good measure! As Alex would say himself "I don't take this $h1t too seriously" The mistake is to compare it with Jam & Lewis productions. This is an Alex production ( with thanks to Bobby Z)

My five questions are:

1. Why was this CD so hard to get hold of in the UK?
2. Why was the album deleted so quickly?
3. Why can't people appreciate it for what it is without making comparisons to work he did 30 years ago? We all change don't we? - it's called evolution!
4. When are you coming to your adopted home (the UK of course)?
5. When will we see a tour with this great new material being played for fans that WILL appreciate your work?!!!

For me 5 Questions gets 5 Stars - keep up the good work Alex!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mr. O'Neal Is Back In Da House! 27 Jan 2011
By Mr Doug Gordon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I didn't realize that Alexander O'Neal released this album until I checked online to see this recent addition to Alex's musical offerings. I've been following Alexander O'Neal's career since the mid-'80s, '90s on thru to present. This album will not disappoint for true Alexander O'Neal fans. He still has that trademark vocal styling that only Alexander O'Neal can deliver. While I like all the songs on this CD, my 3 fave tracks are "I'm Back", "I Found True Love" & "Love Won't Let Me Wait". Even though it's been around 8yrs since his last CD release, Alexander O'Neal has proven once again that he's still got it. To me, he's not old school, nor is he new school, he will always be real R&B school in my books!

3.0 out of 5 stars Has It's Moments, But Far From His Best Albums 11 May 2011
By Bill E. - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Alexander O'Neal is probably the most underrated singers of the last 25 years. He had a few moments of fame back in the mid-80's, especially in 1987 with his album Hearsay and more specifically with the single Fake. Since then he's been less and less in the spotlight, but his albums still satisfied. However with this album, marketed as a return to his "old school" sound, is far less consistent than his previous ones.

I'll admit, at first these songs sound good but after a few listens they grow thin. Things get off to a rough start with the opening track, My House and I'm Back, with it's elementary lyrics (in the latter song the chorus finds Mr. O'Neal spelling his entire name). I will say this - if lyrical content is something you don't care about, then these songs might be fine; the tunes are upbeat with a decent old school sound. The highlight for me is the 3rd track, Minneapolis Shuffle - a midtempo throw back that fondly recalls his MN days when he was just starting out, going as far as to quote some of his earlier songs. However there are too many down moments through out the rest of the album to hold the listeners attention. Not saying there are any bad songs - the album does sound good while it's on, but dissolves quickly after it's over. Some of the reviews are pretty scathing on here and I wouldn't say the album is all that bad... nor would does his voice sound bad. He's edging up on 60 so he's lost a little range, sure - but he still sounds amazing, handling ballads and upbeat funk numbers with equal ease.

If you're looking to check out Alexander O'Neal this is not the album to check out. Instead try his 1985 debut or Hearsay or even his 1991 3rd album All True Man.
