But they were far more talented musically than that label would suggest, especially lead singer Michael , and their material, while sunny and upbeat, didn''t pander to its audience. Solo careers and overexposure gradually weakened the Jackson 5, but their best music still holds up surprisingly well as some of the most vibrant mainstream pop/R&B of its era.

The Jackson 5''s mix of mind-blowing musical talent and sheer charisma earned the family the status of pop royalty in the music business and later helped launch Michael''s legendary solo career.
