MICHAEL JACKSON: ICON is a sparkling collection of the singer's work released during the early-to-mid 1970s, but be careful, for you may already own it: song-for-song, this is a re-packaged version of 20th CENTURY MASTERS - THE MILLENNIUM COLLECTION: THE BEST OF MICHAEL JACKSON (released in November 2000).

That said, this set of songs showcases Jackson's impressive - and quite often astonishing - young vocals in a package that culls the best from his four Motown era solo-efforts. Each of these consisted of "Collective"-written chart toppers and numerous album fillers, which was common at that time. The overall tone of these selections is fairly subdued (although there are some up-tempo tracks), but the songwriters took full advantage of their star's range here, and the results are timeless.

Listening to these tracks, particularly the earliest ones, recorded when the singer was only 13 years old, the maturity of expression, composure, clarity and power with which Jackson sings is disarming. "Ben", arguably the most well-known tune on ICON, gains renewed potency with its simple, plaintive arrangement and presentation, while other songs such as "Got to Be There" and "Music and Me" shimmer with vocal assurance that belies Jackson's years. As one delves into later cuts, the changing timbre of Jackson's voice suggests his ascendency from pop music prince to King; however we are halted just shy of that realization, instead allowed to embrace perhaps the most unaffected time in Jackson's life, when the promise outweighed the criticism.

The liner notes accompanying this CD are unfortunately sparse, but the original four albums these songs were released on were:

"Got to Be There" - GOT TO BE THERE (M.J., 1971)
"I Wanna Be Where You Are" - GOT TO BE THERE (M.J.

The reason they keep re-releasing this material is because there are always people who don't have it. New fans need a jumping-on point even more than established fans need new material -- particularly in the case of a musician like Jackson, who left us all with a hefty catalog. No collection of... Read More
