AllMusic Review by

Most people, even Jackson Five fans, are unaware of this release. Motown kept it a secret, and you can't blame them -- it's weak. Michael Jackson's eldest brother sings in a high, airy falsetto that's more irritating than captivating. The first track is the most commercial, but Jackie's lightweight delivery fails to sell the Corporation composition; the Corporation wrote and produced many of the J5's chart-toppers. He adds nothing to "Bad Girl" and "Didn't I Blow Your Mind This Time" that justifies remaking them. The only notable tune is "In My Dreams," a charming, self-reflecting floater, but one song does not an LP make.
