    Default Victory: Despite it having the best cover art of all Jackson records...

    is there any rememorable song on here worth noting? I tend to remember songs from Destiny and Triumph the most.

    State of Shock and Be Not Always are the highlights for me. In fact, I think State of Shock is one of the best songs The Jacksons ever did. Although, I really do wish they'd ended up doing it with Freddie Mercury instead of Mick Jagger.

    I love that album. I have it on a cassette tape. I'm hoping that someday they re-release it with bonus tracks like they did with Destiny and Triumph.

    I like Victory. I bought it when it 1st came out on a cassette. I usually bought records and never bought tapes other than blanks, but I had the boom box and I wanted to listen to it right away, lol. I bought the vinyl later. You might not like it if you don't like the 1980s synth/new wave pop. If you only want to hear Mike, then skip it. Unlike the previous Jacksons albums, each brother gets a lead song except Jermaine who only duets with Mike on 'Torture' and does some ad libs on Jackie's 'Wait'. Jermaine had a solo album out at the same time, so was more focused on that. My favorite song on there is 'The Hurt'.

    That is my favorite Jacksons album. I am listening to it right now. Right now it is the song The Hurt. I just love that song just like I love all of the other songs off of that album. Torture is one of my most favorite Jacksons song. OMG do I love Michael's voice in that song. That is to me probably one of the best Jacksons songs ever.

    I've always wondered why the buff brothers are on one side, and the other 3 that are all covered up on the other, lol. I also wondered why some covers had a dove on Randy's shoulder and some didn't. The picture disc also had the dove.

    The longer version on the maxi-single is better than the one on the album.

    "One More Chance" seems to be a common title. The J5 had a song called that, The Jacksons had one, which Janet remade. Then Michael had a solo song with the same title.

    Torture is a fun dark rock song.

    Wait is fun.. not amazing or anything, but the ad-libs at the end are awesome.

    State Of Shock is good fun.

    We Can Change The World has a definitive groove once you get into it.

    One More Chance is a great R&B song... untypical of the last few albums they put out.
