The dissapointing thing is the fact we know there are live recordings of the track list featured on "this is it soundtrack" so why didn't sony use those live versions, that would have been a must for fans. instead they throw together another greatest hits. I expect Sony will release the live one shortly after the sales of this album start to decrease. They only reason I give this 4 stars is because the music is of course fantastic, the booklet is nice, original, has loads of nice pictures of michael performing in the rehearsals. The single "This is it" isn't bad, it's a pretty song, however the song is unfinished and its apparent when listening the track, it's obvious its a demo, and one in the early stages of development, still worth having but there must have been other songs they could have included.
On the whole the cd makes a nice programme to the film, rather than anthing else. If Sony had included the live versions on this album It would have 5 stars and no complaints.
