Editorial Reviews

MICHAEL is the much anticipated album of newly completed recordings from Michael Jackson. The creative process never stopped for the King of Pop who was always planning for his next album; unbeknownst to many fans around the world Michael Jackson was writing and recording songs continuously everywhere from a friend’s home in New Jersey to studios in Las Vegas and Los Angeles with a small group of handpicked collaborators. Now, through the unique stories that will be told about the songs that comprise MICHAEL, fans will get mind-blowing insight into how this artist worked and a chance to hear the songs he most recently created along with tracks that Michael had a desire to bring to fruition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoy it for what it is. December 14, 2010
Format:Audio CD
In October of last year, Michael Jackson's This Is It was released a few months after the King of Pop's death. It was controversial among some fans because it was speculated that body doubles were used and that Michael himself may have not intend fans to view the results of hours of film recording. It turned out to be an excellent film and many fans were happy to see it. Over a year later Sony releases a posthumous Michael Jackson album featuring previously unreleased material (even if some of these found their way to the internet sooner or were already known by some MJ experts) that has some fans doubting. Fans know just how much of a perfectionist Michael Jackson was and this being a posthumous release it is understandable that fans may hate what Sony is doing. Maybe Michael would not have liked that Sony did this and maybe he never intended for the songs on "Michael" to be released to the buying public. Sony has an agreement that allows them to not only own and distribute Michael's music but also release new albums of previously unreleased content until 2017. You can bet that there will be more albums of unreleased content to come. Whether or not you approve of Sony's decision you have to give it to Sony though, "Michael" has some very good songs on it. There are those fans who say that it's not Michael singing on the album and those way say it is him. I'm in between; I think they're both right. Michael definitely sings on most of the songs here but there are some that while similar in voice that may not be him, I don't think I'm the most qualified person to make such a judgment and I'm not trying to ruin your enjoyment of the album with some proofs or anything.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vintage Michael! December 14, 2010
Format:Audio CD
"Michael" is the first of several posthumous releases promised by Sony. It comprises 10 tracks, two of which most fans had heard before; lead-off single "Hold My Hand", an anthemic duet with Akon and swirling keys, a lilting paean to love and friendship with hints of Bob Marley (especially "No Woman No Cry"), and the retro-sounding "(I Like) The Way You Love Me" which appeared on "The Ultimate Collection" titled "The Way You Love Me" and without the voicemail message/human beatbox intro.

The cover art is a painted collage of Michael's life from "Off The Wall" including scenes from videos like "Thriller" and "Smooth Criminal". Musically, the album also recalls the eighties. If you liked songs like "Smooth Criminal", "Another Part Of Me" and "PYT", songs with a funky Pop sound, you'll love this. Another good thing is that the songs are not over-long, a problem with a huge chunk of "Invincible".

For upbeat songs, we have "Hollywood Tonight" (with harmonies remniscent of those on The Jacksons "The Hurt"), the haunting "Monster" (a look at the tabloids view of Michael, it features a rap by 50 Cent), "Breaking News" (with an intro comprising sensational headlines concerning Michael), the Lenny Kravitz-penned groovy rocker "(I Can't Make It) Another Day" (which alternates between gentle and fiery), and the spectacular "Behind The Mask", a sax-sprinkled groovy number laced with crowd cheers and a Disco-tinged bridge. It reminds me a wee bit of brother Jermaine's "Do You Remember Me".

For ballads there's the inspirational "Keep Your Head Up" (with a Gospel choir), and the guitar/finger-snap driven "Best Of Joy" with both finding Michael digging out his vulnerable falsetto.

1.0 out of 5 stars Download the 7 real songs, do NOT buy full CD December 17, 2010
Format:Audio CD
7 great songs from The Greatest Entertainer. Please, please, please only download the real ones! Do not purchase the full CD. Boycott "Keep Your Head Up", "Monster", and "Breaking News". Show Sony that we are not going to stand for their B.S.! Michael is not here to physically fight against these gangsters, it is up to the fans to let it be known!

3.0 out of 5 stars Anything for Money December 14, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Foreword

The Noughties were a sad and strange decade for the King of Pop. Bookended with two extravagant artistic endeavors- the release of his tenth album `Invincible' in 2001 & the announcement and run into what would have been the `This Is It' comeback residency in London- 50 record breaking sold out shows beginning on 13th July 2009. For the most of the decade MJ did not release any new music nor perform any shows. This was partly enforced by his court trial and recovery from it, but also due to his monetary problems and continued need to secure financial backing from outside sources. Of course we now know the greatest entertainer who ever lived also had a very serious drug problem.

One thing that was clear over the last eight years of MJ's life- despite the absence of a new album he continued to write & record music right up to and including the time of rehearsals for This Is It. Most notably with Black Eyed Peas head honcho will.i.am in Las Vegas & Ireland circa 2007. In interviews of the time the pair spoke of their aims for the collaboration and Will, of how the material sounded like an `Off The Wall for the new century'. It's worth noting that Michael was never one to release anything less than what he viewed as perfect. Unlike his most notable contemporary- Prince who adopts a much less constricted mindset and continues to release 10 x the amount of music that MJ did. Of course it was this type of restraint & artistic focus that had a part in creating Michael's legend and made his album releases landmark global events.

After the below par performance of `Invincible' in the west (partly due to Sony not supporting it, partly due to a decrease in MJ's US fanbase) the follow up would have to be no less than a masterpiece.

stop that fake album !!
Why do we always have to have an agenda? None of it is going to bring Michael back. Why not just enjoy the music? People quickly seem to forget that any money made from this project goes to Michael's beautiful children. This isn't about Sony, Casio or anybody else. This is about Michael's legacy... Read More

The new LP will have several new songs with varied themes. I cant believe anyone would think SONY would ever put out a product with Jacksons name on it, unless they were 100% sure that was him. Anyone who thinks it is anyone else is either A) stupid or B) insane.

iT'S not that bad actually. Prince's Love Symbol was removed after Prince found out about it, it was in the lower right, which is now an empty bubel. Funny coincidence, the artist who drew it has the last name Nelson. Nelson is also Prince's last name.
