Michael Jackson’s “Music & Me”
This album contains a flock of romantic ballads, like “Too Young,’ “Up Again” and “Music and Me,” wich is merely fodder for the reveries of Jackson’s army of adolescent female fans. This fasction will probably flip over these numbers, through none of them is on a par with his best work. However, there are two standout tracks. One is “Johnny Raven,” which is one of the album’s few upbeat songs. The other is a second version of “Doggin’ Around” that is quite faithful to the Jackie Wilson original.
