Format: Audio CD
For Michael Jackson's second posthumous release, lessons appear to have been learned after "Michael" was heavily criticised. Songs have been picked which showcase his distinctive vocals, and an attempt has been made to make them sound like "Michael Jackson" songs. No rappers attached to songs thankfully.

8 songs have been picked (though ardent fans would have heard 6 of them in some form or the other) and sensitively and lovingly worked on by a team of producers including Darkchild, Timbaland and Stargate. One should ideally get the deluxe edition which comprises the 8 touched up songs, the 8 songs as they appeared originally, and a bonus track. This allows one to compare and also decide which version you prefer.

Opening is "Love Never Felt So Good", a bouncy retro Soul/Disco jam that sounds like it fell off the "Off The Wall" album, very "Rock With You". The original version is a lovely stripped ballad with just piano and finger snaps backing the exhilarating vocals. The bonus cut is yet another version which is a duet with Justin Timberlake and has a lovely beat box bridge and some extra harmonising. The album's highlight and already a top 20 hit on the Billboard hot 100, his first since "Butterflies".

"Chicago" is a midtempo groove with dramatic strings (the strings remind me of "Billie Jean"), while the original is a lilting string-swathed ballad that sounds like it could be from some movie soundtrack. "Loving You" is a sweet swaying ballad with hard hitting beats while the original has a soothing feel and softer beats.

First and foremost: Rest in peace, Michael Jackson.

I have to hand it to L.A. Reid and Timbaland, who executive-produced the album with Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins, Jerome Harmon, Stargate and John McClane... These musical archeologists unearthed some excellent material to modernize. They pay the utmost respect to Jackson in the way each track is produced. It sounds like a Jackson album... and that says a lot. You won't find weird remixes with the artist of the week making guest appearances here... just carefully excavated Michael Jackson.

Giving Justin Timberlake a chance to sing an alternate version of "Love Never Felt So Good" was also a stroke of genius. JT gets his chance to realize a missed opportunity and the track will surely introduce a new set of ears to Jackson's music along the way.

By including the original archival tracks on the deluxe edition, Timbaland and his team give validity to everything that was produced posthumously. Nothing is overproduced... just enhanced.

Finally, thanks to Michael Jackson for the source material and thank you to the producers of this album. The love and respect put into the production of this release has brought legitimacy back to the MJ franchise.

Somewhere Mike is tipping his hat...

Format: Audio CD
Yup, I'm one of those lifelong fans that has heard a lot of these tunes online before. And I love finally having the official release of these unreleased songs. Michael is back, and I'm so excited to see a worthy release for him. The songs are bright, infectious and pure MJ. When you strip all else away, one thing remains evident: Michael was and still is a musical virtuoso.

The Voice is a TV show based solely on an artist's voice. Well, Michael isn't here to support or promote this album, so his voice alone is the driving force. It's shocking how alive he seems in these songs; as if he could reach out and touch you, and he does, with his vocals alone. The thought of songs this good being Michael's discards just makes me giggle.

Michael's vocals in Slave To The Rhythm are ferocious. Hearing him again is like a warm comfy blanket. He's back. He's as brilliant as ever. And he is missed, yet right here in my ears with a new beat once again. I don't mind that Michael's originals were remixed by producers today. Many of them worked with him on the originals, and they seemed to try and tie everything together with the right spirit.

There's a great article in Billboard called Bringing Michael Back that tells a very clear back-story on how this album came together. And there's some great videos on YouTube, one with Paul Anka telling a great story about how he worked with Michael. I believe these videos are all part of a behind the scenes documentary that is available. Those clips aren't on the Deluxe version I got. But I wanted to buy direct from Michael's website because they let you have the album a day before everyone else. I'll get those videos another way; probably YouTube.

I liked the last posthumous album, Michael.

Before I even start this, allow me to say this: GET. THIS. NOW! Especially, the Deluxe Edition. When you open it, the CD feels like a throwback to the days of Thriller, with the words included in the middle portion of the case. I did not realize the lyrics were there until I tilted the case to remove the CD out. Each song sounds really, really good, but I think many will prefer the original version of A Place with No Name over the main version.

Love Never Felt So Good is the initial release from Xscape, and of course Michael puts it down, giving us his ability to reach all who listen to him, no matter where you are. Love is the sholl'nuff theme here, hence the title. Surely most have heard this by now. Chicago is a mid~tempo groove that is written quite cleverly about love that should have never been. Loving You starts with strikes of the piano, breaking into an infectious boom! boom! boom! that will surely become a favorite to many. Slave to the Rhythm is a definite dance track, sounding almost robotic at early places, with snippets taken from other previously released music. And the original version sounds more like what MJ prefers, which is exactly why these versions needed to be released as they show him in the light of his genius & mastery. Do You Know Where Your Children Are-the 2 versions are very, very different in sound, and with the question being asked, both productions are a toss up as to which one you'll enjoy more.

Blue Gangsta, I have to give the nod to the original version, and while many of the elements are present in the main version, again, the original feels like Michael and what we expect from him. It seems to be a ode to the gangster, maybe in movies, maybe in real life.

c'mon guyzzzzzz...
I wonder what's included in the DVD (assuming it's not a mistake) since all the press material did not indicate anything about a DVD (they did say the deluxe edition would feature the demos, which I think will be better than the 'remakes').

Xscape - Track list
But I don't believe they were ever released on any album. They have leaked onto the internet. I'm glad they're on this album so I'll have them.

Sounds terrible
You cant listen to a free preview on MTV, and check sound quality. Wait for the CD. The vocals are always clear. When the vocals are few...the beats are thumping harder. I have become a slave to the rhythm! So there is attention to detail.

"Contemporized" songs?
I believe I'll have a lot of fun with the album (the deluxe one of course) seeing as it gives us the opportunity to appreciate the original recordings and be curious to see how how the producers "contemporize" them. Even when he was alive, I had always hoped that MJ could have worked... Read More
