5.0 out of 5 stars The Most Underrated Of The Jackson Family, 2 Jun 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Centipede / Reaction (Audio CD)
The eldest of the Jackson dynasty is also the most underrated and overlooked member, falling from the radar due to the phenomenon of her brothers and youngest sister.
But Rebbie, most people agree, has the best voice of all the Jackson girls. (Janet's obviously the most sucessful and is tremendously talented but just on singing ability alone Rebbie is superior)

Her voice is sweet and glamourous and yet she can really belt when she needs to, she has a great vocal range, and she exceeds on both the ballads and the up-tempo typical 1980's funky tracks.

The only thing that let her down was material. The songs, compared to her brothers' and sister's are not exactly brilliant. Though there are a few gems here and all the songs are catchy enough.

By far the best song on the cd is 'Centipede', written, arranged and composed by her most famous brother Michael Jackson. It was a hit on the American Charts back in 1984. Also a standout is the track 'You Send the Rain Away', a Whitney Houston esque ballad with a great hook. 'Ready For Love' is poppy and will get stuck in your head all day once you hear it :)

This collection is the best two albums in Rebbie's very short back catalogue, from her peak in the 1980s, and looking at the price it is really worth it to have them on the same cd.

Also worth a look is Rebbie's 1990's album 'Yours Faithfully'. Her vocals are as good as ever.
