  • Jackson wasted little time following up his successful '79 debut. I'M THE MAN was released later that same year. Perhaps consequently, the overall sonic approach is much the same. Unerringly tuneful pop-rock (once upon a time they called it "New Wave") delivered with plenty of British attitude over spare but energetic guitar-bass-drums backing. As a songwriter, Jackson developed a bit more here. Musically, "Amateur Hour" and the transcendent "It's Different For Girls" cover new balladic ground. The lyrics are more penetrating as well; "Geraldine and John" is a biting portrait of two adulterous lovers, and confusion over the battle of the sexes has never been so eloquently expressed as in the aforementioned "It's Different For Girls." I'M THE MAN is fully as arresting as--and ultimately even more engrossing than--LOOK SHARP.
