5.0 out of 5 stars it's good December 6, 2003
By Sinitta
Format:Audio CD
It's produced by Full Force and gave La Toya the spotlight in Europe and it actually is quite good. It's catchy, it was trendy and it's still interesting to listen to.

5.0 out of 5 stars this album's really cool! March 7, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
this truly is one of my favorite albums ever! it's very well produced and has a nice 80s dance/synth-pop feel to it. In my opinion, this is La Toya's best. Standout tracks are "You're Gonna Get Rocked!" "You Blew" "Such a Wiked Love" and "Just Say No"

4.0 out of 5 stars LaToya Jackson Looking To Rock Your Radio August 30, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Well congratulations to me! This will be my 2,000'th Amazon review. Anyway onto the subject at hand! Before the depressing mantle of "Most dysfunctional member of the Jackson family" was worn by Michael,LaToya had the misfortune of wearing that mantle a time when Mike was at the peak of his popularity. It all started when she left home and married Jack Gordon,who turned out to be extremely controlling and abusive. Being sheltered by her family fame,she wasn't prepared for a lot of how she'd be promoted image wise. Basically she was made up to resemble the female version of Mike at this time. But she did know music,having some experience recording of her own with three albums already under her belt. Controversial as she was in the late 80's she did manage to pick up at least the talented production team of Full Force for a good chunk of this album. So it's quite surprising from what you might think.

LaToya's singing voice is not as terrible as it is quirky. Not to make any grandiose comparisons but many of music's greatest singers were not particularly vocally gifted. Musically however this is pretty sound. "You're Gonna Get Rocked" has this hip-hop friendly modern funk attitude whereas "You Blew","Such A Wicked Love" and "Not Giving Up On Love",all produced with Full Force actually look to a heavy Jam/Lewis friendly dance/funk flavor that is safe territory for Janet jackson fans. Harold Faltermeyer produced the similar if poppier "Turn On The Radio" while Bobby Hart got in on the slinky "If I Could Get To You". "Tell Me He Means Nothing To You At All" and "Ain't Nobody Loves You Like I Do" are very bouncy house/hi NRG style dance numbers from the Stock/Aitken/Waterman team of Dead Or Alive and Rick Astley fame.

5.0 out of 5 stars the greatest jackson family cd ever July 11, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
sexy, funky little Latoya didn't get recognition for this cd.
It has all the best parts of bigger selling Michael Jackson (Bad, Thriller) and Janet Jackson (Control , 1814) all at once and more together.

5.0 out of 5 stars Listen to The Entire Album Before You Judge July 16, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
La Toya has a good range of good material to work with on this album. The majority of the songs hit the spot. Songs such as "Turn The Radio On", "(Tell Me) She Means Nothing To You", "Does It Really Matter", "Just Say No", "(Ain't Nobody) Loves You Like I Do" stand as a reminder that if she was not a Jackson, she would as successful as any other Dance-Pop artist at the time. Other songs such as "Such A Wicked Love", "If I Could Get To You", "Not Giving Up On Love" and "You Blew" are enjoyable songs also. If you are not a La Toya fan, then don't purchase the album! Notice how very few people said she could not carry a tune until after her she got married to her controling, late ex husband. For those who are, La Toya gives you a solid album. Her music would not even more consistant and enjoyable until the EP "Starting Over" was released 21 years later. Her follow up to this album "No Relations" is fabulous too! You can keep songs from the reality TV stars, I am a La Toya fan and will remain so.

4.0 out of 5 stars From Latoya to You're Gonna Get Rocked September 23, 2007
By Nikkles
Format:Audio CD
After a long and lengthy process Of trying to find this album, I realised it had been renamed and reissued. As other reviewers have already said it reminds you of Janet Jackson's control and that is why I think it is a great album. If you love that album you will love this one, it is like Janet's early work. I do prefer the tracks such as 'If I could get to you, Just say No, Tell me he means nothing to you, (aint nobody loves you) like I do, Turn on the radio', but the others are o.k also, Great for your Pop/dance/r'n'b /80's collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars BETTER THAN WHAT YOU MIGHT EXPECT January 14, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album is actually pretty good. She worked with a variety of different producers and some work..some don't. Full Force produced the title song which is actually pretty funky. But the spoken beginning is alot like the spoken intro to "Control"..suddenly announcing that this is the "new" LaToya so watch out!..They also produced a sickly sweet ballad "Not Giving Up on Love" that doesn't showcase her voice in the best light. Better give up on songs like this. "Does it Really Matter" is a perfect slice of eurodisco..with it's sly electronic beat and vapid faceless vocals..almost anyone could have sung this song and made it sound just as good. "Just Say No" is a tuneful song about not succumbing to drugs...sorry..no song by a Jackson is going to get some kid to not do drugs..The song is good, however. Since I don't have the acutal tape in front of me I'm not sure of this next title..but there is a song with the word "radio" in the title which is pretty good..upbeat..and a duet with some guy whose name escapes me..(and who has not been heard from since) called "If I Could Only Get to You" also a good song. Funky, up-beat..nice jam! You know..this album was good and sure she can't really sing that great..but she's not THAT BAD!!! Can Janet really sing? Well, not really! LaToya's contributions to record need to be represented on cd more. So there needs to be either a comprehensive compilation or her albums need to be released on cd. She made a song with Michael called "Nighttime Lover" which was awesome.. Mike wrote and produced it..Also her 2nd album "My Special Love' has some pretty good songs..some written by her brothers..and one "Camp Kuchi Kaiai" written with Janet.. Read more ›
