Ben is a wonderful album by the great Michael Jackson. I have always liked Michael's work when he was young; and this CD certainly has much for his fans and even newcomers to enjoy here. We also hear great backup on Michael's songs performed by other members of Michael's family. The quality of the sound is excellent and the artwork is very well done.

"Ben," the title track, starts off the album with Michael Jackson singing so passionately; he truly displays a talent far beyond his years. His phrasing and his excellent diction enhance his performance all the more; and the rest of the Jacksons also do a sublime job--great! The melody is poignant even all by itself and "Ben" is a total masterpiece by Michael and the others. "The Greatest Show on Earth" has an incredible melody and Michael Jackson's squarely front and center, which is quite all right by me! Michael sings this with panache and I love every minute of it. "The Greatest Show on Earth" also benefits from that awesome musical arrangement; the percussion is well used as are the other instruments.

"People Make the World Go Around" is another emotional song that gets the royal treatment from Michael and the rest; this is another highlight of this album and that's grand. Michael handles complex tempo and key changes like the pro he was and always will be--just one listen proves it! In addition, there's another gem in "We've Got a Good Thing Going;" Michael sings this with all his heart ands soul. He never lets go of a superfluous note and I'm very impressed with the way they all do this number. "Everybody's Somebody's Fool" shines brighter than silver and gold when Michael delivers it even if the lyrics aren't all that happy; and the rest of Michael's family harmonize to perfection--and beyond! Perfect!

Michael Jackson was just beginning to show his true talent and brilliance with "Ben". "Ben" (the single) was his first number one hit. This is a great album to have!!! "Greatest Show on Earth" is a classic!!! Buy It!!! God Bless...

I received a great deal on an item that is hard to obtain. It is also something that many would want at this particular time. I consider myself to be fortunate.

I bought this album for my mother shortly after Michael Jacksons death. She has nothing but good things to say about it so I guess it was a good buy.

I have this album on tape, and I just ordered it on cd!
It's fantastic! There are great singers, and there are
great dancers, but nobody will ever come close to the
incredible talent of young M.J.! He has the soul of atleast
1 billion negros! M.J. is soul to the highest level!!!!!!!!!
