The Jackson 5: Greatest Hits

Dave Marsh, Creem, April 1972

MOTOWN HAS ALWAYS been known for its little ones more than its big ones, and the Jackson Five are no exception. This is undoubtedly their best album; it does everything that Motown Greatest Hits collections do in legend – including maybe make you cry, if you were ever involved enough with a certain song at a certain time/space coordinate – without even bothering to think about it.
