Alexander O’Neal is back with his first album of all new, original content since 2002. With “Five Questions (The New Journey)”, O’Neal brings fresh songwriting to his classic soul-funk sound. Whether you’re looking for smooth, romantic jams or just want to groove on the dancefloor, you’ll have it all in these 12 tracks.

This Minneapolis soul man cut his teeth in The Time but was bounced before they signed with Warner Brothers. His tough, ballsy voice has the same grain and range as Otis Redding’s. Like that master, Alexander O’Neal is 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 1986’s “Hearsay”, 1991’s “All True Man”, and 1997’s “Lovers Again”. He relocated to Britain, where his efforts had always been better received, and began to set up permanent shop there. His first British-only release, 2002’s “Saga Of A Married Man”, showed him developing into a smoother and more mature singer compared to his previous output. – John Floyd, All Music Guide
