"Randy Jackson was the main force behind Zebra, an American band that made it much bigger in Japan than here. I can't fathom why Amazon[.com] doesn't link the two. Zebra's music was smooth-but-forceful, sort-of a melodic rock/heavy metal, but with better hooks than normal. They never got much airplay, but most people who heard it, loved it. (Think 80s+ Slade, Europe, or perhaps what Journey should have been instead of what they were.)China Rain takes that quite a bit further. It's raunchier, harder, and faster than Zebra but also manages to be as melodic and catchy. A great album."

"If you've listened to the music of Zebra, than consider this endeavor by Randy Jackson the next step in his evolution as an accomplished musician. Randy uses his Zebra influence to lay the foundations for this more driving and emotional collection. Randy teams with Mark Hitt, session guitarist and founder of Rat Race Choir, for writing great tunes such as "Band on The Wall" and "Only Lonely Today". At the same time, we also get a chance to hear the emotional side of Randy with songs such as"Last Forever" and I Loved You Lied".If you enjoy this, then jump on to Rany's next endeavor "The Sign"."
