4.0 out of 5 stars The Saga continues for Alex
The latest offering from the big soul man. Saga Of A Married man is a story which takes us through the trials and tribulations that a married man goes through. Well, some go through!
O'Neal in my opinion has been very underrated in the last 10 years and has never found the success that he had with his first three albums.
He started in 1985 and this album was...

Alexander o neal is one of y all time fve singers along with the likes of stevie wonder etc. This is his first studio album in a few yrs and it's unfortunately a largely forgaettable effort. Alex will always be remebered for those first 3 albums prod by jam and lewis and they are classics..his follow up lp's have been without the hit making duo and have been musically at...

This review is from: Saga of a Married Man (Audio CD)
The latest offering from the big soul man. Saga Of A Married man is a story which takes us through the trials and tribulations that a married man goes through. Well, some go through!
O'Neal in my opinion has been very underrated in the last 10 years and has never found the success that he had with his first three albums.
He started in 1985 and this album was released in 2002. The question is - can he still deliver an album to compete with other soul acts today?
I strongly believe he can.
Although this album will never be promoted well enough for it to have any chart sucess, it still a very good effort which further more cements Alexander O'Neal in the top 10 sould artists of all time.
Track 1
He Said She Said
If you've heard other O'Neal albums the you will have a fair idea of his familar sound. But there is a change here. This opening track said to me the moment I heard it -"i'm back but lets change the style a little"
Which is needed in todays music climate.
Great track which really sets the mood.
Track 2
Your Gonna Miss Me
This was to my knowledge, the only single released from this album. This track has the most funk edge on the album, and Alex is following his same formular in telling a woman what he thinks.
Track 3
I'm There
Alex really gets that angry tone which he delivered in the top 4 hit "Criticize" back in the 80's. At the end of this song he actually slips in a lyric or two from some of his past hits. But you need to listen carefully.
Funked up soul from Mr O'Neal
Tracl 4
My Baby's Gone
Hmmm ok well we know Alex likes his heartful soul tracks, but this one is a little too corny for my liking! The Chorus of "My Baby's gone, she could stay faithful" just really doesn't do it for me! But his voice once again is immpecable.
Track 5
It Don't Matter
A bit of pop soul here with a catchy chorus mixed with the voice means a big thumbs up to this track
Track 6
Its Ok
Well acually I don't think it is ok! I believe this to be the weakest song on the album. One of those album fillers!
Track 7
What You See Is What you Get
This isn't a song, just a 10 second or so interlude with Alex arguing with a woman over the fact that shes giving him greif although she has been made aware that he is a Married man!
Track 8
Married Man
When listening to this song I think there is a real indication of how Alex has mmade changes to his style and belts out a song that if done by R Kelly, would be a smash hit.
Track 9
What Is A Man
My personal favourite from this album. When people say soul music has no message I disagree. And this song is an indication of that. A beautiful song which oozes soul and has a real personal edge from the big man.
Track 10
Last Night
Superb! I love it! Once again its true Alexander O'Neal style.
Soul music with a firey edge.
You've caught your woman with your best freind. So what is better than to sing a song which just vents your anger at them both. Excellent.
Track 11
Happy Home
A very touching song to end this album .
After all the things that Alex and his woman have been through in this album he wants his wife back. And says make me a happy home.
And they all live happily ever after!
Overall - A great album which is a tribute to real music from the Soul.
Its never going to be a good as his first self titled album or the follow up smash hit "Hearsay" because although this is a very good album they were great great albums.
If you have heard O'Neals othere material then I advise you to get this album. Its O'Neal at his best.
If your married - get this album. It may come in handy!
Alexander O'Neal - the underrated ledgend of Soul Music.

3.0 out of 5 stars ok but not great, 16 Nov. 2007
This review is from: Saga of a Married Man (Audio CD)
Alexander o neal is one of y all time fve singers along with the likes of stevie wonder etc. This is his first studio album in a few yrs and it's unfortunately a largely forgaettable effort. Alex will always be remebered for those first 3 albums prod by jam and lewis and they are classics..his follow up lp's have been without the hit making duo and have been musically at least average. This will never compete today along with the likes of timberlake,r kelly etc but he still has that VOICE ! if your new to mr o'neal get the brillant greatest hits album or his first 3 to 4 albums but this is mostly forgettable.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Man is Back, 11 Feb. 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Saga of a Married Man (Audio CD)
After his super star status and sell out concerts of the 80's this album really does prove that Alexander O'Neal is back. These songs really were sung from the heart. 'My Baby's gone' shows just what RnB has been missing in ballads and finds Alex on top form. I thoroughly recommend this CD for any Alex fan and any lover of RnB. Mr Alexander O'Neal has returned!

This review is from: Saga of a Married Man (Audio CD)
A bit of an average album... Sounds very much of the time, certainly nothing like his amazing Hearsay album...
All a little bit bland really
