About the Artist

Born May 22, 1973 in Chicago, Illinois, USA. Edward Ferrell of Untouchables Entertainment discovered this talented singer-songwriter at the Black Radio Exclusive Conference in Washington, DC. The ex-Heavy D associate helped Jones sign a recording contract with LaFace Records. His writing skills were first heard on Usher`s 1994 hit single, `Think Of You`. Writing credits for Jade, Brownstone and 702 followed, and Jones was also hired to assist with the vocal arrangements on Madonna`s Bedtime Stories. His debut album, June 1996`s My Heart, included a credible cover version of Stevie Wonder`s `Knocks Me Off My Feet` alongside strong original songs such as the R&B hit `In The Hood`. The intoxicating blend of urban beats and classic soul melodies earned Jones several highly complementary reviews. The follow-up, 1999`s Where I Wanna Be, was another stylish collection premiered by the US Top 10 hit single, `U Know What`s Up`. Jones` third album, Life Goes On, was another commercial success (reaching the US Top 3) and his strongest collection of material to date. A lengthy delay followed before Jones returned with 2006`s Journey Of A Gemini. DISCOGRAPHY: My Heart (LaFace 1996)***, Where I Wanna Be (LaFace 1999)***, Life Goes On (LaFace 2002)****, Journey Of A Gemini (LaFace 2006)***.

Any real R&B fan will tell you that Donell Jones is easily one of the most underrated R&B artists of the late nineties. On his sixth album, Mr. Jones continues to show why he's a force to be recockned with. Unlike recent release by his nineties counterparts Dru Hill & Keith Sweat, Donell wisely avoids using auto-tune on his album. Instead he allows his voice to carry the album to R&B heaven. Driven by the lead single Love Like This which is strictly for the grown & sexy, the album is full of the quality R&B music has been lacking. My review includes a track by track breakdown.

1."The World is Yours" - The album starts out strong with Mr. Jones answering all of the haters who may have written off in recent years. *** out of ****

2."Your Place" - Another track for Donell fans, it starts off with a intro from his mother, letting him know that his fans have been waiting for him. It has a Chicago steppers vibe to it. *** out of *****

3."Love Like This" - The lead single which didn't get the attention it deserved. **** out of ****

4."Imagine That"- One of the strongest tracks on the album. With this track, Donell is basically telling all the no good fellas, to man up and do right by your lady. *****

5."Back Door" - One of the first tracks where takes it to a sexual level. This is the only song that uses auto tune but only in the back ground. Roger Troutman would be proud. **** out of ****

6."Blackmail"- This song is kind of the fellas answer to Imagine That. A strong song but it the sequencing on the album kind of throws the vibe off especially after Back Door *** out of ****

7."All About the Sex" - Another sexy slow jam for the ladies. The one thing about Donell, when he's singing about sex, he never goes into R.

I don't know these other reviewers were listening to when they gave this album 5 stars. I was also counting down the days for this album to be released, but was majorly disappointed when I listened to it. First, almost the entire album was produced and written by Donell. Although he is a good singer, he is not the best writer and producer. The majority of this album sounds cheap and outdated. It contains a lot of tacky lyrics that sound too young for Donell. I hated to write this review because I have always been a big Donell fan, but I had to be honest and warn other people about this bad album.

Donell Jones is a bit of an anomaly in the world of soul music. He's well respected inside as well as outside of the business, but commercial success has eluded him from time to time. Part of the reason is his long intervals between albums (like Mint Condition long), and the fact that he was signed to LaFace Records in the mid 90's. Being that he was on LaFace, he always seemed like the odd man out. His music was decidedly East Coast on a Southern based label. Then there were his peers at LaFace: Usher, Toni Braxton, TLC, OutKast and Goodie Mob. It almost seemed as if he couldn't catch a break at times and when he did, it was due to his work with someone else. His biggest hits came from behind the scenes- writing Usher's "Think Of You" with Faith Evans and writing and producing 702's "Get It Together". His best album ironically became his worst selling album- 2006's "Journey Of A Gemini", an album that was all but given the cold shoulder by Jive Records. After ten years of dealing with major labels, Donell decided to go E1 Music for his new album, "Lyrics".

It's basically the same old Donell with his interesting and thought-provoking ruminations on love and relationships, such as the case with the song "All About The Sex". In the song, he pays tribute to a woman who has everything he's looking for, so there's no need to stray. On "Imagine That", he urges men to put themselves in a woman's position to see the error of their ways. The rather amusing "Blackmail" shows Donell sticking it to an ex about her past indiscretions shortly before her wedding day, while suggesting a little hush money for the trouble. He takes on the role of the other man in the ballad "Backdoor", while taking on social commentary on "O How I Wonder".

I am a big Donell Jones fan and was glad to see him back. However, it seems he is trying something different and mixing some hip hop in. Don't get me wrong that may work for some but it doesn't mix well on this CD. Donell has had some excellent CDs in the past but this one veers from his soulful sound and ends up sounding contrived. Hopefully on his next CD he will return to the soul sound that made me love his music.

I am proud to give this album 4 stars!! Every song on this album is at the very least listenable. My least favorite songs, but again they are very listenable are The World Is Yours (little outdated/kinda been done before a million times)[2.5-3 stars], Strip Club (kinda late teen, early 20-ish & made to try to be a hit for the radio I believe but failed....but I don't skip it)[3 stars], and "What's Next" & "You Can Burn" (both not bad but kinda of clubby, but not well done)[3 stars].

Now that I've gotten the not so great tracks out of the way Donell hits us with 5 5 star worthy joints in a row. Those tracks are "Love Like This (4.5 stars)," "Imagine That(4.5 stars)," "Back Door (4 stars)," "Blackmail(4 stars)," and "All About The Sex (4.5)." Then the next heaters are "The Finer Things In Life" and "Just A Little (5.0)." Just A Little is actually my favorite song on the album because of it's laid-back/mellow feel. The last song on the album is "Oh How I Wonder." Ahhhhhh, it deals with real world issues but I'm not a huge fan of it however it's very listenable so I'll give it 3 star. Strong 4 star album and well worth the money!
