All Music Guide - Geoff Orens
The winner of the 1985 Grammy for Pop Album of the Year, No Jacket Required found Phil Collins fully embracing horn-driven pop music, drum machines, and sentimental ballads over his previous darker and more dramatic solo material. The record established him as a major commercial force, and as one of the most recognizable voices of the 1980s. Although the major hits here, "Sussudio," "One More Night," "Who Said I Would," and "Don't Lose My Number" quickly came to sound dated, the album contains several standout tracks.

"Only You Know and I Know" and "Inside Out," meanwhile, show an effective aggressive side to the singer. It's not a completely satisfying recording, but it is the best example of one of the most dominating and influential styles of the 1980s.

    4.5 stars - A WONDERFUL POP ALBUM!

    OHMIGAWD, this is such a GREAT album! No wonder it went #1 in the US and the UK. Phil Collins released a pair of relaxed solo albums before this one, but on here, he retains his energy and creates one of the most bouncy, happy, energetic albums of the 80's. Who doesn't work out to "Sussudio," or smile with "Long Long Way To Go," or have parties without "Who Said I Would." The album will sound a little dated at first, but after a while all the songs will get stuck in your head.
