AllMusic Review by

Each volume in the Universal-distributed Ballads series consists of 12 songs. From 1985 through 1992, a dozen Freddie Jackson singles peaked at number one or number two on Billboard's main R&B chart. Easy, quick work for a compiler -- right? Well, this set contains 10 of those 12 hits, along with others that peaked at number five and number nine. As a cheap introduction to Jackson's most popular singles, this is not ideal, but it's helpful for those who can't obtain deeper anthologies. Among the hits here: "You Are My Lady," "Rock Me Tonight (For Old Time's Sake)," and "Hey Lover." The big one that's missing is "Nice N Slow."
