I like this CD because the songs reveal some of the best qualities of Alexander O' Neal's voice. He sings slow, fast, moans, and groans while painting the picture of a guy persuading a girl to see things his way. My favorite up-tempo song is "If U Let It." It's New Jack Swing, and it's still good listening. I also like "In The Middle," especially because of the lyrics, not to mention Alex's singing. Regarding the last six songs on this disc, Alex's voice married with the poignant lyrics will make a person take stock of his or her romantic relationship. Those final songs are mostly slow, and they tend to evoke gratitude for who and what you've got at home. Here you have all songs very well-written; and Alexander O' Neal ensures they are well-sung.

Alexander O'Neal had been one of a slew of acts to benefit from the dancable funk grooves and production abilities of Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis. By the early 90's however,Jam & Lewis had been responsible for three of Janet Jackson's huge multi million selling albums. And frankly? Their production talents were were focusing more on the poppier end of the new jack/hip-hop soul sound than the harder naked funk they'd help spearhead during the mid 1980's. During this time this album was recorded,Jam & Lewis left O'Neal as a producer. So this album would not only prove the end of an era for both of them,but the beginning of a transitional period for O'Neal in general.

Opening with the sample oriented funky dance groove of "In The Middle" the songs that come immediately after in "If You Let It","Aphrodisia" and the title song are all built around mid tempo drum machine shuffling and layers of O'Neal harmonizing on different vocal levels with himself. "Home Is Where The Heart Is","Chang Of Heart" and "Lady" are all basically slow new jack style slow jams. "All That Matters To Me" is a sunny,modern country soul style song built around an upbeat guitar line and positive oriented lyrics. "Since I've Been Loving You" is a wonderfully constructed 60's Motown style groove co-written by Michael Bolton while O'Neal and Cherelle do the classic Motown duet "Your Previous Love" to close out the record.

With the choice of cover song at the closer and the nature of the vocal arrangements on the first three songs of this album? It's very clear O'Neal was keenly aware of the 10th anniversary of Marvin Gaye's passing. The "next Marvin Gaye" syndrome hadn't quite hit the soul community that hard in 1993.

Already having proven himself adept at both sensuous soul ballads and gritty dance-funk with his brilliant self-titled and "Hearsay" albums from the 80s (and his decent if not outstanding effort from `91), this 1993 album finds Alex in a bit of a different place, and while the results aren't quite as cohesive as previous efforts, this album still has more positives than negatives. There is clearly more of a new-jack swing sound on this album, but it's still some good new-jack swing that sounds well-produced and not forced, and there's one decent ballad in "Lady." The slightly rock-tinged "All That Matters" has a breezy, uplifting feel to it, and, like many times before, he and his star duet partner Cherrelle team up once again, this time to make a pleasing if not groundbreaking cover of the classic Marvin Gaye/Tammi Terrell masterpiece "Your Precious Love." Unfortunately, one thing that does make the album suffer just a bit is the noticeable loss of some of the power and grit that his voice had just a few years back (which may or may not be due to some addictions he's battled over the years). In any case, this might have been a bit of a step down for Alex, but it's hardly a descent into hell, and most Alex fans should find it mostly satisfying.

I miss the REAL sounds of music. After listening to his bedroom voice I was hooked. Would be so wonderful if we could go back in time and bring this music to the "now" time! Thank you for quick shipment and well packaged!

first off, i'm a huge o'neal fan. the man can sing! but this album is missing jimmy jam and terry lewis' amazing song-writing skills and super-tight smooth production! alex, by himself, is like a plate of lip-smacking bbq ribs. yet, if you add jimmy jam and terry lewis to alex's husky voice, it's like a tasty soulfood buffett for 5 million and counting.

still, this album is a must-have just to hear the songs LOVE MAKES NO SENSE, IF YOU LET IT, AFRODESIA, and IN THE MIDDLE! so, get this album just to add onto your personal cd/mp3 collection of alex's body of impressive work!

..."now, fellas! ...can i get you to put your hands together for that?"
-ALEXANDER O'NEAL, from the song, "FAKE!"
