Album Review

Although Barry White's sales had long since decreased by the time he recorded The Man Is Back, the influential soul veteran continued making worthwhile albums. Man isn't in a class with either his classic albums of the '70s or his superb comeback album of 1994, The Icon Is Love, but is a likeable and decent (though not outstanding) effort demonstrating that he hadn't lost his touch as a vocalist, composer or producer. With the black music charts dominated by rap and new jack swing in 1989, White remained artistically viable not by emulating the aggression of younger artists (many of whom were sampling his '70s hits left and right), but by being true to himself.
