A brilliant debut album, from an artist who was way, way ahead of her time. Millie put the sass into soul, the feist into funk, and was rapping before anybody knew what a rap was! Released in 1972, virtually every track could have been released as a single, yet, it did zilch chart-wise. Indeed, Ms Jackson only ever had a couple of hit singles and top 40 albums throughout her long career, despite the fact that she was something of a musical pioneer.

She lets rip from the first few seconds of 'If This Is Love', belting out every number as though her very life depended on it. There's plenty of lurve gone wrong, regrets and revelations, but Millie wont be ground down and she holds her musical head up high. 'A Child Of God' sees MJ in finger-pointing mood at the holier than thou hypocrites, whilst 'My Man A Sweet Man' sounds like a great lost Motown single.

This remaster also includes some previously unissued tracks, plus a few alternative studio takes; there's also a very informative booklet. Along with the 'Caught Up' concept records, this debut album is as good as it gets. Superb.
