AllMusic Review by

The fifth volume of Sequel's seven-disc Ben E. King Anthology, What Is Soul finds the singer at a crossroads, as he begins to abandon the pop-R&B stylings of his best-known work for a harder-hitting soul approach. While the results aren't always successful, there's enough good material to make the disc a worthwhile purchase for dedicated fans.
