My mom bought me this album when it came out and I loved looking at the photos of the brothers!
Cheryl Grady
The album opens with a great version of "Ain't Nothin' Like The Real Thing" and then moves into the stirring title track which has a real original sound.
P Magnum
Lenny Kravitz once mentioned in Michael Jackson Commemorative Edition Time Magazine that the title song here was his favorite song of Mike's.

I remember this well. I had just fninished first grade and was spending the summer of 1972 in Harlem with relatives when this and "Ben" came out at roughly the same time. All of my older cousins had this one in particular, but I didn't get the Cd until very recently.

With all of that said, this is an excellent set sparkling with the innocence and joy of youth.

"Looking Through the Windows" was very popular at that time. Very upbeat and the part where Mike sings "Right Byyyyy your side" gives me chills to this day and the brothers harmonies soar to the heavens.

The other songs are just as great. Their version of another Jackson (Brown, that is) "Doctor My Eyes" actually made the charts in England and its easy to see why (the J5 usually excelled at covers and their version of Marvin Gaye's "Aint Nothing Like the Real Thing Baby" seconds that emotion). "Don't Let Your Baby Catch You Fooling Around" may have been a bit "suggestive" (a forgotten concept) for such a young group in 1972, but the song is fun and funky. I DEFY you to sit still while listening to this.

"Children of the Light" is where the J5 meet the Partridge Family, stylistically speaking. This is typical of the shiny happy people early 70s poppy upbeat peace and love songs that those who remember the era would have heard on AM radio before going to school or in the background music of a teenage Saturday morning cartoon where the characters are driving in a dune buggy against a sunshine and rainbow draped background (Those who were around then know exactly what I'm talking about)! More pop than their usual soulful output, but depending on your taste you'll find this song either sickeningly sweet or delightfully upbeat. For me, its the latter.

All in all, this is a worthwhile purchuse of a lesser known, but NOT lesser product. Enjoy.

Format: Audio CD
Lookin' Through The Windows was the last top ten album by the band for Motown peaking at numver seven and it showed a maturation in the band's sound. Michael's voice was changing, so the teenybopper angle that some previous songs took no longer fit. The album opens with a great version of "Ain't Nothin' Like The Real Thing" and then moves into the stirring title track which has a real original sound. "Don't Let Your Baby Catch You Crying" has a tight pace and "To Know" is yet another beautifully sung song. They follow with two covers, a soulful version of Jackson Browne's "Doctor My Eyes" (which was top ten hit in England) and a hyperactive version of "Little Bitty Pretty One" which made its way to number 13. "E-Ne-Me-Ne-Mi-Ne-Moe" is a fast paced song while "If I Have To Move A Mountain" is a breath takingly beautiful song where the harmonies just soar on. "Children Of The Light" is an inspirational song that has a peace and love sentiment to it and "I Can Only Give You Love" has on point trading vocals between Michael & Jermaine.

I never purchased the previous 2 on 1 CD that featured BOTH 'Lookin Through The Windows' & 'Goin Back To Indiana', so this 2010 remaster was right on time, and for less than $5.00, a NO BRAINER. The music sounded great as it did back in the day, BUT I really give props to Motown/Universal for the AWESOME packaging. They paid attention to details and everything from the original 1972 vinyl album is reproduced for this CD (including the album's inner sleeve's authentic advertisements from 1972 for Jackson 5 posters, cards, autographs, etc.). I am truly happy to add this CD to my collection. Don't miss out on these Jackson 5 remasters!!!

To start off this 1972 release,we get an electric sitar led version of "Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing"-interesting sung as a duet between Mike and Jermaine over what might be the same female suitor. Lenny Kravitz once mentioned in Michael Jackson Commemorative Edition Time Magazine that the title song here was his favorite song of Mike's. And I always loved it too. The arrangement,with it's fan-faring horns,Brazilian percussion effects and ethereal flute surround Mike delivering a pitch perfect performance of a very melodically complex song. "Don't Let Your Baby Catch You" is a powerful,wah wah powered bass heavy funk rock scorcher with Mike and Jermaine delivering a powerful lead duet. "To Know" features some very Chicago type sleek horn/drum parts and a very surprising vocal trade off between Jackie,Mike and...Tito-talk singing in his sly,drawling baritone. "If I Have To Move A Mountain","Don't Want To See Tomorrow" and "Children Of The Light" are all epic,cinematic mid-tempo soul while "Doctor My Eyes" and "Little Pretty Pretty One" are both rollicking interpretations. "E-Ne-Me-Ne-Mi-Ne-Mo (The Choice is Yours To Pull)" may sound like a classic J5 bass/guitar oriented funky pop tune,but lyrically Jermaine sings about the band starting to grow up with lyrics like "tic-tac-toe has got to go". "I Can Only Give You Love" extends on that theme in the end-both musically and lyrically while the bonus track "Love Song" expands on the pop end of the Sly & The Family Stone sound and vocal trade off that inspired the J5 from the outset.Read more ›
