Synopsis

Amazon.co.uk
With grinding, hip-hop-inspired grooves and lush sensual melodies aplenty, Life Goes On sees sultry urban loverman Donell Jones lustily tackle every element of love, paying particular attention to infidelity and, inevitably, sex. While his storytelling approach is at times charming, he seems unable to resist the temptation of adding some gratuitous filth. "I'll put some honey on you. It's a sticky situation we're bound to get into," he purrs on "Don't Leave." But, despite the occasional lack of subtlety, Life Goes On packs some finely crafted midtempo moments, such as "Still," dreamy ballads like "Where You Are (Is Where I Wanna Be)," and even some feisty funk-fueled dance ("Freakin' U"). Simply irresistible. --Christopher Barrett

Donell Jones - Life Goes On
------------- | The World | 04/14/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Donell has always been a huge underground R&B singer/producer/songwriter. But with this classic album, he finally broke out into the mainstream more. He is still not a Mainstream R&B singer, because he doesnt generally make radio friendly R&B. He does the more laid back, grown and sexy R&B. Not Neo-Soul... definetly not Neo-Soul. I think thats a big part of the reason why he has never really been a big star is because people that don't know his music just assume that because hes not all over the radio because he makes Neo Soul/boring R&B. And hes definetly not Neo-Soul, he has the same contemparary R&B feel as artists like R. Kelly, or Usher. Donell just doesnt really make party music. But he has a very good voice, one of the best i have ever heard. He has a silky smooth voice that has a very strong accent to it. And he truley knows how to use his smooth vocals to his advantage. He really shows his true talent on the very emotional song "Life Goes On" where he serranades the story of his woman cheating on him while he was locked down. Its a classic song. Another great song is the summertime driving song "Comeback" which is just a very relaxing tune with very sweet vocals. And then there is the sexy baby making track "Do U Wanna" which is another great showcase of Donells talent. I mean its really a shame that an artist as good as Donell Jones doesnt get the attention or the credit he deserves, because he is better then 80% of the other R&B singers that are hogging the air time right now. Overall i have to say this is his best album, and in my opinion its a classic!
