Album Review

Following a protracted bout with label issues and some time spent cleaning up his lifestyle, Donell Jones finally released his fourth album — four full years after his most successful album, Life Goes On, which fell only two spots short of reaching the very top of the Billboard album chart. While Journey of a Gemini doesn't quite maintain the steady level of consistency that his first three albums carried, it's nonetheless a satisfying addition to his catalog. Known to produce most of his own material, Jones takes a surprising direction by handing the duties over to the likes of Tim & Bob (who, unsurprisingly, shine the brightest), the Underdogs, Mike City, and Ryan Leslie for a significant chunk of the album. Since the album's not as ballad-heavy, Jones is less prone to oversinging, and several excellent midtempo tracks — "Better Start Talking," "I'm Gonna Be," "Spend the Night," "Feelin' You," "Lust or Love" — should function equally well in clubs and living rooms. Just to show that he hasn't turned into a total square, there are plenty of nasty bedroom come-ons.

Customer Reviews

True R&B Talent

Donnell Jones is totally slept on. He is by far one of the most gifted R&B artists out there. He does not get the marketing, promotion and credit that he so completely deserves. His albums keep getting better and better. This album is good from start to finish. I hope he comes out with some new music really soon.

So Underrated!

What the hell? It's like this album never existed, 3 reviews and the most popular song is 14th on his top songs. I'm Gonna Be is amazing, another life is a nice track and Tank does awesomely. C'mon! You will LOVE I'm Gonna Be

Excellent Album!

Donell Jones is an extremely talented artist. This album was really slept on.

Beginning with his 1996 album My Heart, singer/songwriter/producer Donell Jones recorded a jazzy and soulful style of urban pop for LaFace Records and scored a few modest singles in the process. His first two singles -- "In the Hood" and "Knocks Me Off My Feet" -- established his reputation within the competitive urban market. In particular, the latter song, originally a Stevie Wonder song from Songs in the Key of Life (1976), became a substantial hit for Jones, climbing to the upper reaches of the...
