Barry White is the man and I think it seems just to simple to express that in many of his hits sets, but its really proven on this 1989 set of duds that didn't chart high. I find it kind of shocking that these steamy soul numbers with an eighties twist didn't set the world on fire. It's a nice blend of that deep chanting with a sexy mix of strings and well timed keyboards. It works very well.
Indeed many of the songs are smooth crooning. Mostly toward the later end with yearning of "When Will I See You Again" to piano tinged epics like "Don't Let Go". Wonder what Barry wants you to do with over 9 minutes of a song like that? I guess to Barry fans from the old school that is not a shock. The man is an entertainer and makes real big good records. ON the first half of "The Man is Back", however, its not slow jams but rather upbeat R&B that almost comes off as Europe dance. "L.A. My Kind Of Place" is sexy uptempo sounds from strings to percussion. "Super Lover" is almost too funky for its own good and sounds like a spoof of dance music. The best of this side and the reason I bought the album is the club pop yet smart lyrics of "Follow That And See (Where It Leads Y'All)". I think its great that the bass voiced lover uses some great wisdom on this track to get the kids to think, and dance. The song is a very quirky pleasant dance jam from the King of smooth soft ones.
Barry's first side of dance to till you drop is kind of strange but enjoyable. I think fans of his disco side might dig it. Personally, I do love that song "Follow..." and think its smart dance music. I kind of see why it wasn't a hit. Just doesn't fit for Barry to jam like that, but it has a very eighties dance groove. Those smoothies of jazzy delight will make you want to get with your loved one. He's done it again, but no "opps" here. Let this album take you on a ride. This is a forgotten great by the master Mr. White.

This album was released in 1989 and was Barry White's second album for A&M Records. Uptempo dance numbers like "Responsible", "Super Lover" and "L.A. My Kinda Place" all have subtle New Jack Swing influences but Barry White (thankfully) remains the star of the show. Granted, neither this album nor its hit singles were wildly successful but the late 1980s and early 1990s proved to be truly challenging and difficult times for veteran R&B artists as far as getting radio airplay and exposure was concerned. "The Man Is Back" is by no means an essential Barry White album but it does have its moments nonetheless.
