Freddie had eleven #1 singles on the Billboard charts, a chain of events that started in 1985 when he landed a record deal with Capitol and issued the debut album, ‘Rock Me Tonight.’ It sold four million copies, garnered the Laurence composed single of the same name and stayed at #1 for six weeks.
Freddie Jackson was one of the smoothest singers of the late 80s and its been too long since he last recorded.
Jackson's voice is intact and engaging, but the recording itself is substandard, with generic, unimaginative karaoke-like arrangements that sound like they were recorded in a different time zone than Jackson's vocals.

This is Freddie Jackson's first studio set since 1999's "Life After 30" an we find him more at home with this CD, as it is more settled in the ballad tradition.
Still, I love Freddie's music full stop but I will be honest and warn that this set did take more listens to get used to than I had anticipated, but the set is very, very clever in that it grows on you with each play.
Freddie takes a more modern R&B beat-ballad approach on the title track of the album and settles in very well with it I must say.

Since 1985, when his debut LP, Rock Me Tonight, was released on Capitol, Jackson has had many Top Ten R&B singles, and from 1985 until 1987, he had six number ones, another number two, and two others at number eight and number nine respectively.
