    Default Why So Little Love For The Jacksons?

    For instance, Triumph is every bit as good as Off the Wall and is essentially a Michael Jackson album in all but name given he wrote the majority of it and sang lead on the majority of it. Surprised Sony isn't putting out Jacksons special editions and box sets!

    I consider Destiny to be the first true solo MJ album. I even think i rank it higher than Off The Wall

    I have an Essential Jackson album put out by Sony/Epic that I really love. Great songs on it-I bought it just for "Find Me a Girl."

    I'm surprised as well that there isn't much coverage on The Jacksons albums. Especially ones like; Going Places, Destiny, Triumph...lots of great Michael gems on these records!

    It certainly would be great. When Michael was alive, he didn't seem to want to look backwards, only forwards and he preferred to release solo music as the years unfolded. I'm not sure what the stumbling block is now, though.
