The Man Is Back! is the self-produced seventeenth album by American R&B singer Barry White, which was released in 1989 on A&M Records. The first album of White's comeback phase, the album featured White incorporating a more contemporary production style while retaining the essential elements of his trademark sound, but the album was only a moderate seller, peaking at #22 on the R&B chart, only slightly higher than the disappointing showing of his A&M debut, The Right Night & Barry White. Critical reaction is generally positive, with the album being classed as a worthwhile and enjoyable, if not groundbreaking, addition to White's catalogue.
