Jermaine Jackson, Lead sinder of the Jacksons....

"I just recently got this cd after looking for it for months. I had to buy it online, and I'm very happy I got it. My favorite thing about this Cd is that Jermaine finally got to be the lead singer on this cd and he proved that he was never second banana compared to Michael. Jermaine is one of the few singers who's range has actually increased as he got older and he is in top form in this album. It's a shame it didn't do better. Tito, Randy and Jackie all get leads to on this album, and they sound great. The only downsides are that a few of the songs are very average or hokey(Harley), and that this album suffers from not having Michael's songwriting(something his is sorely underrated for.) If you can find it, this is worth buying. La Reid and Babyface produce a song on here and Diane Warren contributes "Private Affair" where Jermaine kills it. Don't ignore this one because Michael only sings on the song "2300 Jackson Street"(with Marlon, Janet, Rebbie and their grandkids) because the group can survive and I believe thrieve even without Michael. This album proves it."
Jacksons without Michael didn't sound very bad

"Though having been a Michael fan many years ago (actually I was starting when 2300 Jackson St. was released), I was able to listen to it as a brilliant group album. It's true that some songs are not quite good, but still it's a good funky release. How could they have sounded in the '90s?In my opinion, the worst song is the only one where Michael's voice is present. I used to jump it.Anyway, the best release from the Jackson family that year was Janet's Rhythm Nation 1814, doubtless."
I'll admit, it's not their best

"But being the Jackson fan that I am, I have to say that because I know they had better albums out. I noticed a lot of people were wondering Where's Michael on this album. It was unfortunate that he only collaborated on the song 2300 Jackson Street, but hey maybe one day when they decide to do another album he'll be more on there. I was upset that Janet didn't do anything but collaborate on 2300 either. I think Randy could've left the song that he had on there in regards to his motorcycle off of the album. But I still enjoyed the rest of the album. What would be cool is if they do another album and turn it into a family thing, where each one does a song or two and then do a family song. That would be nice."
