Product Description


By the time he released his third solo album, Phil Collins had become a near-ubiquitous presence on the radio, thanks to his increasingly mainstream work with Genesis, his own chart hits, and his indelible production stamp on other artists' albums. No Jacket Required did nothing to stem the tide of all-Phil-all-the-time playlists--which is fine, considering that overall, it's likely his best solo effort, ranging from the engaging rockers "I Don't Wanna Know," "Don't Lose My Number," and the silly Prince rewrite "Sussudio" to heartfelt ballads such as "One More Night" and "Long Long Way to Go," which features a vocal cameo by the (at the time) equally omnipresent Sting. --Daniel Durchholz

4.0 out of 5 stars Third Time's A Charm June 18 2009
By Dave_42 TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
On January 25, 1985, Phil Collins released "No Jacket Required", perhaps the best of his solo work. As has been talked about many times, the title of the album refers to an incident where Phil was denied admittance to an establishment (The Pump Room in Chicago) because of his attire. This has some of Phil's best known work, and in many ways some of the most contrasting work he has ever done. There are songs on here which people don't like mixed in with people's favorites. The album won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 1985.

The album opens with "Sussudio", a rather unlikely single and hit, and yet it managed to reach number one in the U.S. What I remember most about the song is the way David Letterman used to make fun of it. The song isn't one I care for much, but it obviously had great appeal to a large number of listeners. "Only You Know and I Know" is next, a more likeable track for me, and one of three for which Daryl Stuermer wrote the music. "Long Long Way to Go" is a song which has Sting providing backing vocals and his voice works well with Phil's. I don't really care for the somewhat gimmicky end, but all in all it is a pretty good piece. "I Don't Wanna Know" is a more lively piece at just the right time. This is the second of the pieces where the Stuermer wrote the music and Phil provided the lyrics. "One More Night" is one of those songs which the critics panned but Phil's fans like. It made it to number one in the U.S., and while clearly not the deepest lyric or most complex piece, it does provide a nice ending to the first half of the album.

"Don't Lose My Number" is a high energy piece to open the second half of the album.

5.0 out of 5 stars This album is so hummable and catchy! May 30 2004
Format:Audio CD
Phil Collins' No Jacket Required is not only great, but very hummable! Loads of catchy pop songs all throughout! I can't tell you how many times I've hummed to Long, Long Way to Go. Probably more than the big hits of Sussudio, One More Night, Don't Lose My Number and others. I don't think that any album he's done afterwards has topped this, because the songmaking is so very strong on here as well as the writing and producing he did on it. "Long" sounds like the sister to In The Air Tonight, the way that the songs sound alike, with the exception of those bridges. From the songs, to the catchy choruses to the way it defined '80s music, this is Phil Collins' best solo album to me!

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the 3 great masters of the 80s April 22 2004
By fart
Format:Audio CD
phil collins was one of the 3 great masters of the 80s, along with grandma and jean-michel jarre. houston was the center point of 80s mania with jean-michel jarre's rendezvouz houston and grandma's house playing phil collins while everybody was always there. in the 80s the night ruled, with the michelob commercial that played "i move better in the night" and phil collins "in the air tonight" playing as the music for the commmercial. i wish it was still back then because i could ejaculate to 80s mayhem. if you dont know what i'm talkin about then you dont know the 80s.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very good pop/dance album. Feb. 17 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is the big smash album for Phil Collins. Just a couple of years after the big self-titled pop album for his band Genesis, this came out. The songs on here are for the most part good.(Particulary Take Me Home, and Don't Lose My Number, both big singles for him.) Despite it being his most loved album it also offers some of his most underated songs(Only You and I Know, Long Long Way to Go, Inside Out, We Said Hello Goodbye) as well as possibly his worst(Doesn't Anybody Stay Together Anymore?) The production is pretty bad on here, especially on Sussido, Don't Lose My Number and Take Me Home. However the live versions of these songs more than make up for that. If you can tolerate pop music, buy it and enjoy yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's been a long long way for No Jacket Required Dec 30 2003
Format:Audio CD
Phil Colins is, without a doubt, one of the finest singer/songwriters of recent years (not bad for a drummer, huh?) His talent was born while still in Genesis after Peter Gabriel ditched the band. Since then, he's lead the group into commercial success and then began a career as a best selling solo artist. No Jacket Required was released in 1985 in the midst of the pop frenzy of that era and the music video television madness. Phil was no stranger to pop/rock radio stations and MTV; he offered them a popsicle named Sussudio and that was that for the star. The rest of the hits came rushing behind; the groovy One More Night, the rock epic Take Me Home and the fantastic Don't Lose My Number, which spawned an unforgettable music video. However some other tracks that did not get commercial appeal are as equally good; the smooth low key Long Long Way To Go, which features obvious backing vocals by Sting, remains one of my personal favorites from No Jacket Required, Inside Out and We Said Hello Goodbye (Don't Look Back) which was originally featured as a B-side to the Don't Lose My Number single.
Phil went on to release better and more mature work with the Grammy winning But Seriously four years later. His career in the 90's fell short but still maintained good songs here and there; the early millennium saw Phil Collins return to form with groundbreaking productions, and Academy awards. However, No Jacket Required remains to be the album that sold the most copies and is most adored by his fans.
