The Jacksons Victory Album has always been recieved as a lackluster effort from the brothers. It's not the case. Victory is a unique album that didn't focus on the r&b sound that was going around in 1984. It mixes in the sounds of rock, pop and alternative to give each song a different groove. The three singles released from Victory were the power rock sounding of State of Shock which hit #3 on the charts. Torture was the next single released. The video only featured Marlon, Tito, Jackie and Randy. Jermaine and Mike decided at the first day of shooting that they wouldn't take part of the video. The video still delivers with the help of Paula Abdul's direction. The song peaked at #17. The last single released was Body, featuring lead vocals by Marlon. Body is great because it's a great dance groove. The video shows the Jacksons minus Mike and Jermaine again, holding auditions for women to be dancers in the video. Although the song only reached #47 on the charts, it's still a classic. Jackie's lead song Wait should've been released as a single. Jackie does a great job with the vocals and Mike sounds good as hell towards the end helping out on backing vocals. Victory is probably the Jacksons 3rd best album, behind Triumph and Destiny, but it's still a great album!
