Alexander O'Neal album for sale Product Description

Alexander O'Neal wasn't as huge as Luther Vandross or Freddie Jackson; nonetheless, he was among the most exciting male R&B vocalists of the mid- to late '80s. Creatively and commercially, the soul man hit the ground running with this impressive debut album. It's impossible to discuss Alexander O'Neal without mentioning the Time -- O'Neal is an ex-member of that Minneapolis funk-rock combo, and so are the album's producers (Monte Moir on three tracks, the Jimmy Jam/Terry Lewis team on the others).   ...See Full Description

Thank you CD Universe! I have been searching for this cd, and now I finally have it. From "Innocent" to "Look at Us Now," this cd is phenomenal. Alexander O'Neal is one of the great soul singers. This is a must have for any true R & B fan.

A stunning debut from the REAL king of 80s soul
I have long been a fan of Alexander O'Neal and I have every other release of his as well as having seen him in concert. A puzzle I have never been able to work out is why Mr O'Neal never made more of an impression in his native U.S. His music always charted better over here in England which is a shame because his blend of soulful grooves with a distinct 80s flavour were far better and more inventive than more successful but infinitely blander artists like Luther Vandross. His second album 'Hearsay' is his most famous one, and includes hits like 'Criticize' and 'Fake'. This album was very hard to get hold of but was well worth the wait. I had resigned myself to years of trying to track down the debut album and I was astonished when I saw that it had recently been remastered and re-released by CD Universe. So how was this debut album then and how did it compare to his more famous follow-up album and later work? Well, 'Alexander O'Neal' is a very mellow album and it's most recognisible song is the 'If You Were Here Tonight' ballad that was (and still is) a perfect song for that romantic evening. Other tracks that are very much in this mould are 'A Broken Heart Can Mend', 'Do You Like I Wanna Do', 'Look At Us Now' and 'You Were Meant To Be My Lady'. The two more up-beat songs, 'What's Missing' and 'Innocent' are both brilliant dance tunes that capture the spirit of the 80s soul era perfectly. Two minor points stop this from being as good as 'Hearsay' though. One, with only 7 tracks this album is too short. Two, the track 'Innocent' is over-long. A good 4-minute song has been stretched into something twice as long. So all in all we have a great soul album that fans of 80s soul in particular will love. Alexander O'Neal has produced a lot of great stuff so if you've never heard of him but like the sound of it then get collecting! It's time his homeland started to catch up on the finest soul artist of his generation!
