The King Rises Again!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Xscape (Audio CD)
Brilliant. Just brilliant. 8 songs unreleased remastered, and on the deluxe addition, the originals. Track by track review :
Track 1 Love Never Felt So Good:.. An 80s disco vibe, amongst crackling vocals. Love Never Felt So Good was recorded in the 80s, and should've been released in the 80s too. 10-10
Track 2 Chicago:.. Michael sings in a low chord during the verses, before unleashing regret and angst in the chorus. About a girl who was already married.10-10
Track 3 Loving You:.. Another one with an 80s vibe, a love song yet more "poppy" that a ballad would be. 10-10
Track 4 A Place With No Name:.. Using a sample from "A Horse With No Name" comes A Place With No Name. Superb. 10-10
Track 5 Slave To The Rythm:.. A funky disco groove getting at women being treated worse than men. 10-10
Track 6 Do You Know Where Your Children Are:.. About a girl who runs away from her abusing stepdaddy, only to resort to prostitution. A few hehes and you have a song!!! 9-10
Track 7 Blue Gangsta:.. About a girl who makes him angry. Worth noting that his vocal performance is outstanding. 10-10
Track 8 Xscape:.. Another disco groove. Probably the poorest on the album but hey. 8-10...
Gotta get it!!!
Deluxe edition is the way to go. Includes :
A cool poster of MJ,
All songs in their original forms aswell as the remastered versions,
A DVD Documentary on how the album was made,
A booklet of all the songs' lyrics,
And the hit, Love Never Felt So Good remixed with MJ and Justin Timberlake. Two pop stars, great song.
My personal standout tracks are "Chicago" "Slave To The Rythm" "Blue Gangsta" and "Love Never Felt So Good'..
So all in all. GET ITTTTT!!!!!!

Wow chill out mate..
Jacko was Wacko, there's no denying it. He's still my favourite artist to EVER live.
Why should it matter on an Amazon review anyway, I doubt the MJ Estate are reading my review with tears in their eyes. But if it means that much to you I'll change it.
As for the track "Xscape"; it has grown on me so I will change to a 9-10, but there's 7 other tracks that I feel are better. If everyone had the same opinion, life would be boring...
Oh, my name?? My name is Jack and I have mental health issues, Wacko Jack is nothing to do with Michael Jackson; it's a spin on me.
