Album Review

Two years after the surprisingly modern-sounding Music Is Life, Jeffrey Osborne returned on From the Soul with a set of covers. His voice, understated but moving without exception, takes center stage throughout. The arrangements are straight-ahead, conservative, with no frills, and they all stream by at a leisurely pace. When backing most other voices, they'd run the risk of trying the patience of the average listener, but they're fine enough since they're supporting Osborne. The nicest touch of all is a sweet run through "All at Once," a song co-written by the singer that was made popular (roughly 20 years to the date) by Whitney Houston. Other highlights include Gamble/Huff's "Close the Door," Curtis Mayfield's "People Get Ready," and Barbara Mason's "Yes I'm Ready."

Customer Reviews

This is really good.

I've been a fan of Jeffrey Osborne since the LTD days - "Love Ballad" and "Concentrate On You" bring back memories of serenading junior/senior high girls who'd only give you curious smiles for your attempt at being Jeffrey. However, I'm no fan of cover albums, but this one has some beautiful renditions. His cover of Stevie Wonder's classic "Knocks Me Off My Feet" is the must-listen and must-have of the collection. "Hey Girl" is soulful and strong. The nice thing about Jeffrey's versions of the songs (at least the songs I chose to download - the two previously mentioned, "First Time Ever I Saw Your Face", and "Yes I'm Ready") is that he stays committed to the original melody. Thanks Jeffrey. It's so good to listen to your voice.

For the Macologist

Osborne's style provides the basic ingredients for the person to "Mac" his..or her way into a position of horizontal enrighment. His voice is melodic, the beat consistent and the words are appropriate - tried and true. He has taken was has already been done to the level of refined poetic essence.


This album does what songs are supposed to, transports the listener to another place. Jeffrey Osborne fills a void that you don't realize as NEEDING to be filled until you hear it. He leaves the listener gasping because of being oxygen starved for true talent. Emotions long ago forgotten and oh-so good to feel are evoked when you hear "First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" and "People Get Ready". A long slow sigh of satisfaction is released and I say, "this was good for me and I hope it has been good for you". THANK YOU JEFFREY!!
