“The Poet” by Bobby Womack (1981) R&B, funk, jazz, finely performed by Womack, with plenty of excellent backing support. These are mostly love songs that are presented with soul and flair. Womack’s lead guitar is nice to listen to, as well his not-quite-mellow-enough baritone voice. And the backing vocals are angelic. “Stand Up” cooks—makes ya wanna dance. These tracks are well arranged, but some idiosyncrasies (like overused harp glissando) mildly detract. And while the lyrics are suitably passionate, they lack depth and lexical variety, hence the album title “The Poet” is somewhat pompous. The track “If You Think You’re Lonely Now” is interestingly equivocal. Is it sympathetic or menacing? The listener can decide. But it’s good music that gets under your skin. Womack’s “Just My Imagination” (1981) is strikingly similar to The Temptations’ “Just My Imagination” (1971). Are the attorneys on top of this or is it just my imagination? A very enjoyable album. 3/5

Ooooooooo. funkay. Love the funk R&B on Secrets. So Many Sides Of You is a great opening track. I actually don't love If You Think You're Lonely now, but I still love this album. Great album, I had a blast listening to it.

Absolutely PERFECT. Womack remains the king of soul, and this album is one of my favorites. Every track is genius, but "If You Think You're Lonely Now" is one of my favorite songs of all time.

For some reason, I remember listening to his final album when it was released. However, never really listened to earlier Womack. I'm not especially qualified to evaluate how this compares to other soul/RnB/funk from the era, but damn it seems pretty damn good to me. I got the 2021 remaster, and it sounds really well defined to my inexpert ears. You've got funky party anthems like "Stand Up", and slightly generic bedroom preludes "Lay Your Lovin' On Me". But my preference is for the long, reflective ballads like "Games" and "Just My Imagination" (weirdly with a country tinge to it. Edit: apparently he had at least one whole album of "country soul"!), which really take you on an emotional/narrative journey. I'm not a huge fan of the growling soul thing he does sometimes, but Womack's voice is definitely a strong asset here. All the musicianship is good, and the bass particularly stands out on some tracks.

A funky, jam-filled album from a crazy talented singer. Straight up, this record will make you want to dance and sing like a madman. The guitar and piano riffs are groovy, there's a disco-based rhythm section, and Womack brings heat to his voice that you can feel in your soul. Favorite Song: If You Think You're Lonely Now Least Favorite: Secrets

Sometimes I wonder if I overrate certain rock records and underrate other genres, primarily soul and R&B. Because I hear good stuff here but it doesn’t really sound essential to me. I do think it’s an interesting footnote in R&B history, as this came out right when disco became passé, but no one really knew what would be the new sound. A lot of it tends to run together for me, but I have fun anyway. C

I got on with it, So Many Sides of You, If You Think You're Lonely Now and Stand Up all slap. The rest is all okay. However, I feel like the super polished sound was a malign influence on the rest of the decade, with so much overproduced plastic soul afterwards. This isn't quite there. Nothing sounds glazed over and evil like what came later, but it's definitely on its way there. I'd have given it three, but it loses a star for what it wraught on ears in the coming years.

Very busy energy which Womack matches with fidgety vocals. More disco here than you might suspect. Blues, too. Basically, he'll take rhythm from any place he can get it. But poesy? An overstretch.

First off, what a really cool album cover, amazing. And thankfully, the quality of the music is equally top notch. Soulful lead vocals, gospel influenced backing vocals, lovely smooth production, tasteful arrangements. It's hard to pick stand out tracks as every one is a winner thanks to the funky backing, it never drags. A joyous, wonderful record from start to finish.

Así, en la primera escucha, me pareció como música de cena/fiesta elegantiosa y luego que pensé que eso me sucede sobre todo por la educación visual (películas y series donde pasa eso más o menos). Luego entonces me cruzó por la mente si esto quizá sea algo medio "genérico". En fin, no investigué más, pero la voz de Bobby me parece cool y todo aquí es muy enérgico. También creo que es algo que escucho muy poco y en moods muy especiales, quizá. Mis favs: "Lay Your Lovin' On Me" y "Stand Up" por muy animada. 7.5/10

I didn't realize the impact Bobby Womack had. I saw the movie, One Night in Miami and I learned about the influence he had on Sam Cooke and the crazy story about his personal life. Womack married Sam Cooke's widow, but then his brother married Cooke's daughter! Then Womack carried out an affair with the daughter while married to the widow! This led to Womack being shot at by Cooke's widow and to their divorce, but the daughter married his brother and worked with Womack on a ton of records! Crazy. Anyway, this is a great album. First Bobby Womack album I've ever listened to. I knew Across 110th Street, which is amazing, but this dude is great! So much soul in his voice. I'll admit, this album sounds more dated than his earlier stuff. The 80s are all over this thing, but he sounds great, and it reminds me a lot of Prince at times.

First listen. Funky, soulful, definitely a 1981 sounding R&B album and quite good. The songs seem to fall into three categories: Funky songs where you hear the Sly and the Family Stone and Funkadelic influences. Pop songs sounding very similar to other R&B pop acts of the day like Kool & the Gang and Ray Parker Jr. And finally his strongest songs which is why this album made the list and have much more slow-paced traditional soulful sound with a jazz-based guitar and horns. His crooning voice dominates. These songs remind me somewhat of the Isley Brothers and the one hit and song that I heard before "If You Think You're Lonely Now" fall into this category.

OK this album appears today and my first question is "Who on earth is Bobby Womack?" quickly followed by "Why are a third of his songs not available on Spotify?" He sure doesn't look like Neil Young. So I start to listen and, wow, this guy is good. His music moves and he has a deep powerful voice that I could listen to all night. I still have no clue who Bobby Womack is but I now know how good he is.

Was a bit curious when I tried to open this on Spotify, the first three songs are unplayable in my region for some reason. I do think this is a shame because each of them are great songs (in particular Secrets) and would like to have them saved on a playlist. The remaining tracks available range from great, corny, and a bit tame. The favourites of these are If You Think You're Lonely Now (which is great despite its corniness) and Stand Up. On a side note, this is one of those instances where it's not great to look at the artist's Wikipedia page, as Bobby Womack's personal life is a massive yikes to say the least. Although the one upside of doing so was I found out he featured on Stylo by Gorillaz.

What, where's Wikipedia to give me an easily accessible read about this album? I can't be bothered to do my own research. :) I dug this a fair bit. The first track So Many Sides of You had a Stevie Wonder kind of opening (sounds like Master Blaster), which I love because I love Stevie. Hope it wasn't a ripoff. There is some definite early 80's cheese here - Lay Your Lovin' On Me is a bit over-produced and the lyrics in Secrets are just atrocious at times (KFC? Really?). I get why If You Think You're Lonely Now was the big single - so much deeper and more soulful than the others. But the album is mostly a good funky ride, and that's worth something. Stand Up is another great example. I know, it's got some cheese too but damn that beat. I loved it (reminded me of another great funky cheese You Dropped a Bomb on Me by the Gap Band). A nice surprise and more to add to my list of soft 80's r&b favorites.

The best Bobby Womack album from the 80s? In any case, an excellent album with quite a reputation, just like part II. Just short of 5 stars for me - as it is hard not to compare it with his classic albums from the early 70s.

This was a hard one to rate. I LOVED the bass on this album (drums too), loved the verses, loved the up-tempo R&B attack. I've got a "best of (soul years)" collection from Bobby Womack, not one of these songs are on it, and none of them pack the punch these songs do. His singing is killer. Strangely, from a songwriting perspective, I thought every chorus on the record (with an exception or two) was overshadowed by the verse. The verses flowed and rolled and were just fantastic and then the chorus came in and the energy dipped. So, this was an easy 4, but that hampers it, as does the song order. Why stack the three slow numbers at the end like that? All three songs are just fine (though I'd have preferred one more rollicking track replace one of them), but the album comes to a screeching halt before it's over. So, at its best, this was bangin'. But it's far from perfect. Hell, I enjoyed it a lot. 4 stars.

Es un sonido muy dulce al que te adentras escuchando este álbum. Estamos hablando del decimotercero de la carrera de Bobby Womack, y es una verdadera joya del soul y el r&b. Con toques disco, un groove que te mantendrá enganchado en todo momento, los instrumentos interpretado de forma magistral y la increíble interpretación vocal, que te dejará boquiabierto. Es alucinante la forma en la cual este artista te seduce desde la primera vez, como si fuese la décima escucha que le haces. Puede ser por lo atractivo que resulta este género, pero también le adjudico una cuota muy grande al artista, que sin duda entrega un producto de altísima calidad para el disfrute de todos. Este trabajo te deja fascinado y sin dudas que con ganas de seguir con la música de Bobby, así como a su vez, con ganas de volver constantemente a este álbum.

Good solid modern soul. Think the shiny production gets in my way of enjoying it more. Favorite tracks: "Secrets", "If You Think You're Lonely Now"

Meh... Una sola canción me medio gustó. Aburridon como es de esperarse de un disco de baladas, aunque sin duda es una gran e inconfundible voz. Mood: mi padre tu producto, qué buena presentación, pero yo estoy fuera.

Bobby Womack is the king of product placement but probably only a duke of soul. He was not terrible but did not rise to my level of "i must hear more of this man" - he wa aight - he shall receive three "Bleeding Gum Murphy's"

I totally respect the musicianship and songwriting, but I find this type of music just a bit too smooth for its own good and a bit cheesy. 6/10

Maybe I'm just generous because I'm really into this style of music at the moment. Would be good to know if I think the same in 3 years.

6th July 2021 Listened with one earpod in in the morning while working on the day of the Spain Italy euro semi final. Italy won on pens. I liked this, it was soulful and smooth with a hint of melancholy

Has some nice slap bass. I was a bit disappointed there wasn't any electric organ and that a lot of the songs just faded out at the end, but it was still a good album overall. Games was my favorite song.

Quite neat, though quite a few songs are similar in being about love. Stand Up was probably my favorite song. Each song has quite a good beat and sounds quite neat. Aside from several songs being solely about love, the lyrics are all interesting and not too repetetive. However this album doesn't stand out to me too much .

Whilst there are some pretty great slow jams here (and the hilarious Secrets which appears to compare a woman to, er, kfc), the album is more a mess of ideas than an overall cohesive whole. Womack is a talented musician with a wonderful voice. But after reading about his personal life, you gotta say, the man had a hella unpleasant traits.

Found myself questioning how much to embrace this after hearing the issues going on in the artist's personal life at the time of recording. But the music is winning me over, it's hard to deny. I found the middle part to drag a bit, I think it was a little too 80s soul for my liking. But the beginning and end are great.

Instrumentally I like everything that is going on, but lyrically it's all cheesy-80s-soul to me. Although I'm sure live would be really cool, it's not something I'd listen to on my own.

Kinda falls between the sounds of the 70s and 80s. I like the songs that lean towards more of the 80s sound with the funkier bass and synths like on "Secrets" and "Stand Up."

Oh that's some babymakin' music. If you think you're lonely now was the highlight of the album for me. A lot of the tunes were just average. Not much to say, saw he does have some great tunes in his repertoir but this album didn't do a whole lot for me.

I thought I heard some pretty strange poetry. Of its time and silly in many, many moments, but still compelling. I liked my time with this album, especially the high of "Stand Up". And in the balance, it's "poet" not "poetry", and the poet is necessarily a product of his time.
