People who do not profess to be fans, just ordinary music lovers, must be having a real laugh at some of the discussions about Michael Jackson's new album "Michael".
If a CD is awful it will die, if it is that good it will stay in the charts for ages and be reissued in future.
No one is saying "michael" is another "Bad" but for goodness sake, let people decide for themselves whether they want to buy it or not. I really hope that those awful people calling themselves harcore fans, are seen for what they are - fanatics. Nothing more, nothing less. It's a good job they aren't involved in the production of MJ's CDs or we'd never see another CD in his name again. How could they ever agree on what is "worthy" of releasing? I wish people would get a perspective, and wake up to the fact that Michael is dead so can't have any influence over what material he has worked on in the past that is compiled, extended, manipulated and released. If you genuinly like MJ's CDs, just be grateful that there is still more music out there with his vocals that can be released and enjoyed.

HOW PROPHETIC about the release of "MICHAEL" you have been, Chris!
Given the rate its plummeting down the international charts people HAVE decided for themselves by voting with their feet showing sick delusional Sony sympathisers like yourself for what they are, only irrational fanatics/Sony payrolled like yourself could get enjoyment from SO MUCH unreleased material when one (but of course not all) of the main reasons material remains unreleased in the first place is its dearth of quality and lack of majority appeal, unfortunately such artistic creations and their intellectual rights' prevents the real CRUD from being disposed of permanently at some point so fans aren't taken advantage of while they are such easy emotional bereaving targets :(

Ironically its a good Job you aren't involved with production of his unwanted excretia that media won't even play beyond tokenism (you sound so insane you'd probably even want to experience MJ's personal waste disposal just because it wasn't publicly released in his life time and your hopeless gullibility would be SEIZED + taken advantage by Sony's greed ): ) because you'd want to sample it even when the majority of hardcore fans are sick of being ripped off + Sony can no longer see a market to rip off, so such ghastly releases would come to a thankful, acutely premature termination:D

I think you are being a bit hard on Chris - he's quite right, in general if a product is crap and no-one wants it, it will fail (mind you, listening to some of the current 'music' that's on offer, you could be forgiven for thinking the opposite!) If Sony want to waste their time and money, let them; it is after all, their time and money. There shouldn't be an impact on Michael's legacy as his fans will always be his fans and there is tons of good stuff he released to compare with whatever crap I am afraid they will turn up when scrounging through the vaults. It is worth remembering, however, that Michael himself referred to songs he had put away as part of his children's inheritance - I hope it's been saved for the future and is considerably better than what was delivered last month. I heard that both Quincy Jones and Bruce Swedien are being called in to work on the next album?!

Truth is the album is not the greatest album ever released, but iyt as spawned some very good tracks. Hollywood tonight, Monter and Much to soon could have graced any of is prevous albums, and without this release it they would never have been heard.
The album as only had one true single and to sell 3 million in its first week of sale and become multi platanum world wide is not bad with very little promotion. Remember Michael is no longer with us, If he was the album (Maybe different) would have been relesed During or Just after is O2 concerts and would have had a real short film release for the first single, so you cannot judge album on sales alone.
