Album Review

There are contemporary artists that can get away with an old-time Motown soul feeling. Canadian rhythm and blues group Jacksoul is such a group. Led by singer Haydain Neale, the band offer up one soulful and delectable groove after another, beginning with the infectious "Think You Should Know" that recalls bands like the Temptations and the Four Tops, not to mention Otis Redding or Sam Cooke. Although "Getting It On" doesn't quite measure up, it's still a decent class with some occasionally quirky, high school-centered lyrics. Much better is the slower and hip-hugging "Shady Day" as Neale shines on this mid-tempo mellow ditty. The lovely soul oozing all over "Every Sunrise" is worthy of comparison to, perhaps, Luther Vandross sounding like the real deal and not some boy-band rip-off. The backing vocals and "sh-bop, sh-bop" harmonies gives it more credence also. The first disappointment is the rather bland "Love Jones," which doesn't go anywhere in terms of flow or groove. A truly low point is the opening to "Saved," which is introduced by a teenage girl saying the world is "going to crap." It's far too lightweight and relies on dropping various names to get its peaceful message across. The greatest song by far though is the gorgeous single "Still Believe in Love," which comes off as pure and as strong as anything Berry Gordy produced back in Detroit. The funky groove that kicks off "Ocean Pearl" would be a welcome addition on the album, as Jacksoul are made for tunes like this one. The same could be said for the Stevie Wonder-ish "Merry Go Round." Overall, this is a fine album with some classic Motown soul songs.

Customer Reviews

So sad that we won't be hearing more from this great artist

I love Jacksoul and the great, smoky, old time feel of Haydain Neale's terrific voice. The music is mellow, upbeat, easy to listen to and kind of like putting on a favorite pair of jeans - you know you'll be wanting to listen to this album for years to come and it'll just get better and better. So sad to learn this week of the death of Haydain Neale - he's a great loss to the Canadian music industry - a great talent and by all accounts a great guy. Thank goodness we at least have the music he's left behind.

Wonderful

Great album!

Great guy, great band, great album

I had listened a little bit to Haydain and his band for a few years but when I saw him live this year, I became a convert. He is a great entertainer and this album shows his and the band's versatility that was obvious in concert. Haydain has recently been involved in a traffic accident - he was struck by a car while on his Vespa - and remains in serious condition. I am sure I speak for all his fans in wishing him a full and speedy recovery.
