Someone once told me, "There's not such thing as a bad O'Jays album." I'd have to say they are correct. One of my all-time favorite groups, if not my favorite. They've never disappointed me. Eddie and Walter are still in there hangin' tough with a new guy, who is quite good.
What's great about this one is the O'Jays themselves produced it. It's very smooth and mixes some of today's soul grooves with their own classic sound. "Long Distance Lover" and "Let's Ride" start off this great CD and the great sounds just keep coming. "I'm Ready" and "Put out the Fire" and two other excellent tunes.
The fellas are back and they still got it! O'Jays forever!

The days of Gamble & Huff produced cd's are over, but this is their best effort since those days in the 80's. [Let's Ride, Don't break my heart and Latin Lover] are the best songs, but all eleven songs are good. Those three are my personal favorites. I'm glad artists that can really "sing" are still out there. When it's all said and done, the O'Jays will go down as one of the best R&B groups ever!

Just like the O'jays, they've put their game down for real!
Listening to them is like listening to a band.Their voices are the instruments in a soul/jazz ensemble.

I loved "For the Love" by the O'Jays. This has to be one of their best albums in the last decade. They've been spotty with the choice of material, but this time, they got it right. I still like "Don't Break My Heart" and its dramatic bridges. I love the final song, "Someone Like Me" where they really sing it soulfully within the 6 minutes. Without coming off retro, yet staying current, some of the ballads have that '70s feel to them, sometimes recalling that strong period of hits they had in that decade. I love Let's Ride, their song that they did with producer Steve Huff. After the thump-thump-thump of his ballads with Avant and Keke Wyatt, he comes up with this fabulous groove-dancing song for the O'Jays. This is just a solid album that I loved playing in 2001 and hope that they continue that musical legacy.
