This is where it all began, the juggernaught success of Jackson's solo career started with this album and it's worth getting just for that reason. The fact that this was the album before he got really big gives it an unselfconscious and earthy feel blended perfectly with Quincey Jones' vision and keen ear for jazz. Whilst there are a few tracks which are pretty mediocre there are some absolute gems. As well as the obvious classics listen out for the soulful 'I Can't Help it' (co written by Stevie Wonder)and the pumping 'Get On the Floor'. This album will probably appeal to those put off by Jackson's inflated ego which prevails throughout his subsequent albums.
