Journey of a Gemini

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
Following a protracted bout with label issues and some time spent cleaning up his lifestyle, Donell Jones finally released his fourth album -- four full years after his most successful album, Life Goes On, which fell only two spots short of reaching the very top of the Billboard album chart. While Journey of a Gemini doesn't quite maintain the steady level of consistency that his first three albums carried, it's nonetheless a satisfying addition to his catalog. Known to produce most of his own material, Jones takes a surprising direction by handing the duties over to the likes of Tim & Bob (who, unsurprisingly, shine the brightest), the Underdogs, Mike City, and Ryan ...

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
Following a protracted bout with label issues and some time spent cleaning up his lifestyle, Donell Jones finally released his fourth album -- four full years after his most successful album, Life Goes On, which fell only two spots short of reaching the very top of the Billboard album chart. While Journey of a Gemini doesn't quite maintain the steady level of consistency that his first three albums carried, it's nonetheless a satisfying addition to his catalog. Known to produce most of his own material, Jones takes a surprising direction by handing the duties over to the likes of Tim & Bob (who, unsurprisingly, shine the brightest), the Underdogs, Mike City, and Ryan Leslie for a significant chunk of the album. Since the album's not as ballad-heavy, Jones is less prone to oversinging, and several excellent midtempo tracks -- "Better Start Talking," "I'm Gonna Be," "Spend the Night," "Feelin' You," "Lust or Love" -- should function equally well in clubs and living rooms. Just to show that he hasn't turned into a total square, there are plenty of nasty bedroom come-ons.
Billboard - Clover Hope
"Gemini" delivers Jones' much-needed brand of soothing R&B, which may not give him superstar status but is always in good taste.
Boston Globe - Ken Capobianco
After a four-year hiatus, Jones has returned with a sleek, solid affair that focuses on his strengths and avoids most of the cliches that plague the modern soul genre.

    outstanding artist

    Donell Jones to me has been the most consisting r&b artist since he debuted in 1996. I love his voice, his style and he is oh so sexy with his lyrics.
