Overview

In the tradition of his successful Motown records, Michael McDonald's new album is another collection of classic soul-tinged covers. This time, the soulful crooner tackles tunes made famous by music heavyweights including Stevie Wonder ("Living for the City"), Jackie Wilson ("Your Love Keeps Lifting Me Higher"), Van Morrison ("Into the Mystic"), Dionne Warwick ("Walk On By"), and Bob Marley ("Redemption Song"). Soul Speak also features three new songs: "Only God Can Help Me Now," "Enemy Within," and "Can't Get Over You (Getting Over Me)."

Although this cd is not yet available for shipment, a few websites have already leaked snippets of songs and three songs are already receiving airplay and charting well. The song selections are safe but the delivery manages to vary so the songs sound new. Guaranteed to be an easy listen.

Go Get It, this album is AWESOME

Michael McDonald typically slams the pedal to the metal, and it's just as well he does. His terrific vocal performance saves 'Soul Speak', making up for several disappointing arrangements and a few uninspired cover choices. A pretty good album overall.

Michael McDonald gives a new twist to some classics. The album is great to listen to and, even better, my 5 year loves it! She asks me to play it everytime we go in the car because the beat is so catchy.
