Don't Take It Personal

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Craig Lytle
Jermaine Jackson made his mark on this album with the number one single "Don't Take It Personal." With a percussive rhythm and the coolness of Jermaine's consoling intonation, this moderate number propelled its way to the top of the Billboard R&B charts. One of only two songs to reach number one for the Gary, IN native. The other was "Let's Get Serious."

The former, written and produced by David Conley and David Townsend of Surface, is a dulcet composition with a steady flow complemented by trembling shades of a trombone. The latter has mellow urban groove in which Jackson releases a soulful plea. It was written by Bernard Jackson, also of Surface.

Other excellent takes include "Rise to the Occasion," a duet with La La, and "Next to You."
