5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute delight, 15 Nov 2011
This review is from: Man in the Music: The Creative Life and Work of Michael Jackson (Hardcover)
I had waited for this book to come out and had very high expectations for it, and the book fully lived up to them. Amid the rough developments of the doctor trial, it has become my blissful place to escape to. It was a treat - from the wealth of facts about Michael Jackson's albums to insightful quotes that paint a portrait of the Master to the professional yet so subtly affectionate tone of the narrative. I loved how carefully the photos were selected - not just for the sake of having some pictures, but actually illustrating the story. The book itself is printed on coated paper - it's beautiful almost like a photobook, a gift edition, but the most valuable part is the information it gives. A lot has been said and written about Michael's career from Motown years to the "Thriller" album, but Joe Vogel is the first one who seriously takes on the subject of his later, in many ways more creative work. Album by album, song by song Joe goes though Michael's music from "Off the Wall" to the unreleased material of the final years sharing secrets of production, uncovering gems of sound and meaning. I haven't had such a feeling of being immersed in a celebration of Michael Jackson the Artist since "This Is It" movie came out. It's a great feeling, and I'm going to miss it.

"Man In the Music" is not only the best and most well-researched book about Michael's music that has been written to date, but I'm pretty sure it's the best there is going to be in the coming decades. So if you want one ultimate book in your collection that reveals the depths of the King of Pop's creative work and does justice to it - for you, your children, or your grandchildren, - "Man In the Music" is the one you should get.
