Album Review

Alexander O'Neal was among the most exciting male R&B singers of the mid-to-late 1980s, but by the mid-1990s, his popularity had decreased considerably. The late 1990s found O'Neal recording for Ichiban, and he was no longer working with the hit production/songwriting team of Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis. Produced by Billy Osbourne, Nick Mundy and the Kazir/B-Cube duo (among others), Lovers Again isn't as strong as his 1980s work with Jam/Lewis, but isn't a bad album either. Although nothing on this CD is in a class with "Innocent," "Saturday Love" or "Fake," O'Neal demonstrated that he still had a fine voice on decent tunes ranging from the gritty "Do You Right" to the smooth "No One But You." The thing is that when O'Neal was in his prime in the 1980s and had the guidance of fellow Time graduates Jam & Lewis, his albums weren't simply decent — they were excellent. Not essential, Lovers Again is an album that only O'Neal's more devoted fans will want.

This Minneapolis, Minnesota (via Natchez, Mississippi) soul man cut his teeth in the Time but bounced before the band signed with Warner Bros. His tough voice has the same grain and range as that of Otis Redding. Like that master, Alexander O'Neal was comfortable with pumping dancefloor burners and slinky couch-cuddlers. He's certainly the best singer Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis have ever produced, and the strength of his material and his robust voice can be heard on releases including 1985's Alexander...
