could and should have been much better
where to start, first off I am surprised at all of those reviews that claimed the album was amazing. It wasn't. If you compare this to dangerous, off the wall, or bad then you will see this. The material chosen was not strong enough and wasn't as well executed. Don't get me wrong, there were definite bright spots on this album, like Whatever Happens and Butterflies (check the remix with eve too it's good). But, most of it sounded similar and was stale compared to what michael has done in the past. He shared more of the song writing in this record and I think that made it suffer. there was nothing comparable to what he has written in the past, excluding "heal the world" which was the only dark spot on the dangerous album. I think a lot of his collaborators messed with the spirit of his music and he let them. He is as much at fault for a mediocre album. When you're dealing with a great in anything them not doing better than ok is unacceptable. If michael jordan played just above the level of a scrub in a game, he would come under the same scrutiny. The HIStory album is better than this and that previously held the title for worst jackson record. All this being said, other bright spots include Break of Dawn (which had a gorgeous arrangement), Don't Walk Away, and invincible minus the rap. Speaking of rap, a lot of that rap was lame, minus biggie's. The whole record came across as a drunken version of dangerous with even more techno elements. Michael you can do better, and I hope you come out with another album so you don't soil your good musical name.

Michael Jackson: What happened???
For some reason MJ decided to write more love songs than what he usually does. Almost all the songs sound the same. But I did like a few songs like Unbreakable, You Rock My World, Threatened and Butterflies which was pretty good. Still, I'm not feeling what MJ has to say in these songs. Plus I wouldn't suggest this album for fans under 13. In one song " Break of Dawn" he has some adult stuff that isn't so appropiate. Mj, I know you can do better, so why not do it!?!
