iTunes Editors’ Notes

Michael Jackson was at the peak of his popularity when Victory was released in 1984, but where Destiny and Triumph were basically vehicles for Michael’s talent, the Jacksons’ final album is shared equally among all six brothers. Everyone gets co-writing credit on at least one track, and everyone gets a solo vocal: Randy on “One More Chance” and “The Hurt,” Tito on “We Can Change the World,” Jackie on “Wait,” and Marlon on “Body.” Of course, Michael can’t help but steal the show, and his two contributions (“Torture” and the Mick Jagger duet “State of Shock”) are the album’s standouts. The production style is rock-inflected boogie, and while it is more dated than Destiny or Triumph (not to mention Michael’s solo works from the same period), there is something special about the fact that Victory represents an equal collaboration among the brothers. The spirit of unity makes up for any musical shortcomings, and the group accomplished the rare feat of closing out their 20-year odyssey on a dignified note.

Classic!

Granted this is the same year i was born but i grew up listening to the jackson five and watched every video known to man. out of all the albums, this album had to be the best. 'Body' is one of my favorite songs. i even remember the video when they went into the gym... anyway best album!

As a big fan of the Jacksons I always thought people over looked this album. Glad to see it on Itunes. A classic that is still good today. Love this album.....

we were hard on this album some 23 years ago.

this wasn't "that" bad.

The Jackson 5 were one of the biggest phenomenons in pop music during the early '70s, and the last great group to come out of the Motown hitmaking machine before Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder shifted the label's focus to more individual visions. The Jackson 5's infectious brand of funky pop-soul was a definite departure from the typically smooth, elegant Motown sound, as befitting the group's youth and the dawn of a new decade. That youth, coupled with the merchandising juggernaut that sprang up...
