I haven't yet finished reading this,but it's clear this is the book i was hoping for. It's a great in depth look at the man's music,his albums and the tracks on them. There's a fair bit of talk at the start of the book to remind us of how important he was,not just to his fans,but to the world of music. This really would be a different shaped world without his impact on it,the imprint he left behind is indelible. After giving a decent take on each album,the author goes into each track and gives us his view on what makes this particular track worthy of the praise fans heap upon it. When i heard about this as an upcoming book,i considered it a really exciting idea,not only is it not just another book on MICHAEL JACKSON,it is a book on his music and why it touched so many,not just that it did.
Each track's detailed look not only goes into the lyrical side of it,but the musical side too,pointing out just what was achieved. MICHAEL didn't just make music,he perfected it.
This book really isn't strctly for fans,where as the auther is clearly a great lover of his music,it's written is such a style as to include everyone's interest rather than just that of his millions of fans.
So finally a book that takes a closer look inside the music that came from unquestionably a genius in his own right,someone who earned the title KING OF POP. If you want a book that takes a close look at the man,i recommend JERMAINE's book,if however you want a book that takes a fair insight into what each much loved track actually gives it's listeners,this is it!
