is Reach Out: The Motown Record Human Nature's fifth album. It debuted at number #6 on the Australian ARIA Album Chart but worked its way up to #1. On the album, the band perform their own renditions of eleven soul music classics. The tracks include renditions of The Four Tops' " Reach Out I'll Be There", The Temptations' " My Girl", The Supremes' " Stop! In the Name of Love", The Jackson 5's " I'll Be There" and Marvin Gaye's " I Heard It Through the Grapevine". Produced by Paul Wiltshire for PLW Productions. Following an appearance on the New Zealand edition of Dancing With The Stars, the album debuted at #4 on the New Zealand albums chart more than a year after its release, climbing to its peak of #2 the following week.
The album represented a major new musical direction for the group, which had previously performed boy-band style pop. The change re-invigorated their popularity, resulting in their best sales in a decade.
