Album Review

Jermaine Jackson's sole LaFace release, You Said, is most known for the controversy (or hype) surrounding the supposed lyrical attack on his brother Michael on the album's second single, "Word to the Badd." But taken on its own merit, You Said was one of Jackson's better post-Motown albums. Produced by the LaFace family — L.A. Reid & Babyface, Kayo, and Darryl Simmons — the credits also listed longtime Jackson collaborator John Barnes (Rebbie Jackson's gold single "Centipede," Janet Jackson's "You Don't Stand Another Chance," and the Jacksons' "Torture" and "Body"). Like Janet declared her independence on "Control," Jermaine does so on "Rebel (With a Cause)" while Living Colour guitarist Vernon Reid supplies burning power chords and lighting fast solos. "I Dream, I Dream" sounds a lot like the original version of Bobby Brown's "Every Little Step I Take." "A Lovers Holiday" and "Treat You Right" (with vocals by Babyface) are done in the style of "Tender Lover." The ballad "True Lovers" softly lurches along like "Whip Appeal." Opening with swirling harps, "Don't You Deserve Someone" comes closest in fire and spirit to his emotive, classic ballads (the Jackson 5's "I Found That Girl," his own "My Touch of Madness" from My Name Is Jermaine). Though at times, You Said sounds derivative of LA Reid & Babyface's previous productions, it's a joy to hear Jermaine's vocals upfront, unlike many of his post-Motown albums where they were buried under a mountain of production and effects.

The lone Jackson family member to stay with Motown while the other brothers split for CBS/Epic (he was then married to Berry Gordy's daughter Hazel), Jermaine enjoyed a artistically diffident career during the '70s at Motown, surfacing with an occasional hit like a remake of "Daddy's Home" (1972) and "Let's Be Young Tonight" (1975). Jermaine got a badly needed shot in the arm from Stevie Wonder, who wrote and produced "Let's Get Serious," a Top Ten pop and soul dance hit that came around the time...
