Um... i'll give it a three out of five.
This album... hmm... what to say. Well, first off, it is probably the worst album that Michael Joseph Jackson has ever made. Truly, it's bad on even average pop culture standards. Though I must admit, there were a select few songs that really caught on to me. And a very good quality is that you can actually understand almost half of what he's saying without reading a lyric sheet. Impressive! However, that doesn't make up for the rest of the album. Most of which was really quite laughable. Of course I did like this album the year it came out, 2001. I was also 10 at the time. Really, comparing it to the potential that he really had with this projecct... you come to realise that he didn't have to cross over to the r&b genre THAT intensely. He should stick to the traditional protestant political slander and family-themes, and probably one or two love songs here or there. But honestly... this whole album is all about SEX! Well, anyway, before I get too carried away, let's get to the track listings shall we? Unbreakable: I'll give this a 4/10. It sounds almost exactly like "You Rock My World" and that's a big deductor for me. Not to mention the theme of the song... you know "You can't get me media! I'll always come back!" Uh huh....... well, the media really wasn't as obsessed with him as he thought at the time. Maybe in 1993, but not 2001. Sure he raised SOME speculation with "Living with Michael Jackson" in 2002 (which he should not have done, since people were JUST beginning to think he was normal again) but even then... well, anyway. On to the next song. Heartbreaker: 2/10. This song is too dang repetitive! That chourus stays in my freaking head for hours. And the chourus itself is repeated like... twelve times. Mike... we all know you can do better than that. -_- Invincible: (up-tempo) 3/10. Ah, yet another "You Rock My World" sound alike... and you know how most people think that the song "Invincible" is about him? Nope, he saved that for "Unbreakable". God KNOWS i'm happy he didn't release THAT song as his first single.. that would have been humiliating. Break of Dawn: (mid-tempo) 2/10. I'm simply not used to listening to Michael Jackson... Mr. so-called "Family Orientated" (actual quote) singing about making sweet sweet love to some random woman all night long. I don't even want that image in my head! My word... not to mention the track sounded like somothing Justin Timberlake would release. (ven though he was still in N'SYNC at the time) Heaven Can Wait: (mid-tempo) 3/10. Kind of an akward transition from lust to biblical themes, don't you think? Not to mention the song itself is really just so-so. You Rock My World: (up-tempo) 6/10. One of the few songs on the album that I actually do sorta like. Though i've heard it so many times that i'm really very tired of hearing it. I wish I could rate the video as well... because boy.... I would. But I won't get into that now. Butterflies: (low-tempo) I'll give it a 5/10. It's a lot like "Break Of Dawn", but with a twist! It's talking about WANTING to make love to some random woman. *suspense* But the track and vocals are nice enough, that i'll listen to it on occasion. Though this song also sounds like something Justinn Timberlake would sing. Spechless: (low-tempo) 7/10. Meh... this song could have been longer, but it's actually quite good. Sort of an anthem feel to it. Though the placement of the song was wrong. This should have been a hidden track, or at the very least the finale to the album. Not stuck in the center. 2000 Watts: (up-tempo) 4/10. Though I give props to Michael for showing off his vocal range by using his "deep voice", this song really has no real meaning to it at all. It's basically just talking about random elements of being in the recording studio. Whoopdydoo. Not to mentoion the track is just rediculous. You Are My Life: (mid-tempo) 2/
