HIStory's 2 CDs (one hits, the other new) were Jackson's attempt to connect his glorious past to a dodgy present and--given it's commercial and artistic performance--cast a shadow on his future. Conceived as his formal coronation as the "King of Pop," HIStory's second disc instead presents Jackson as an epauletted, single-gloved Richard III. By turns paranoid, angry, bitter, sentimental, and, in one instance, possibly anti-Semitic, HIStory was less a collection of songs than a case history. A few tracks--mostly those produced by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis--are sleek, modern pop/soul, but too much of HIStory has the overblown vacuousness of a musician who knows his time is past, but is unsure as to how to react to the situation. --Steven Mirkin

HIStory starts with fifteen greatest hits, and has the curse that only genius can suffer; there aren't enough! Where is Smooth Criminal, Will You Be There, Leave Me Alone, Who Is It... Some greatest hits albums resort to fillers, but HIStory Begins could have been bigger and better and still left you complaining that it wasn't enough!
HIStory Continues, the second disc, has fifteen new tracks, inlcuding the cover of the Beatles' Come Together, previously only available as a B-side to the Remember The Time single. It's slightly more hit-and-miss than his last two albums; of Bad's eleven tracks, nine were released as singles - how's that for quality? But the best songs on the album are among his best ever. Scream is a monumental comeback single. While it was expected he would brush the recent controversies under the carpet, here he is at his angry best, fighting back. The same can be said of They Don't Care About Us, and potential buyers should be aware that the alleged anti-semitism is a myth. Here, any racist words that appear in the lyrics are used to show the stupidity of racism, not to endorse it. Stranger in Moscow is his most adult song to date, a beautiful and haunting ballad that shows how far this album has moved from his 80s heyday. These first three tracks are by far the best on the album, but there are other highlights: the title track is a messy epic; Childhood is MJ at his most open and honest; Tabloid Junkie and 2Bad kick ass; and Earth Song doesn't need anything more written about it!
His previous albums had a little more balance between the best and the slightly-less-best songs, but this is the most important album Michael Jackson has made. It has an honesty in the lyrics which makes his earlier work seem slightly empty, and will make you realise that "King of Pop" is too narrow a title for this guy. I would recommend this album to everyone. The greatest hits and the new tracks are stunning.

Michael Jackson's HIStory album is constantly labelled a dissapointment. This has absolutely nothing to do with the quality of music on this album and everything to do with the quality of music on his previous albums. In a nutshell, when you've produced masterpiece's of the quality of Off The Wall, Thriller & Bad, people are always going to shoot down any future releases that don't quite meet the impeccably high standards you've reached as an artist.
HIStory contains two quite separate discs. The first being a collection of 15 of Michael Jackson's greatest solo hits. The second containing his most recent music at time of release. The first album is a retrospective showcase of musical genuis. Don't Stop Til You Get Enough, Billie Jean, Beat It, The Way You make Me Feel, Man in the Mirror, Black or White, etc, etc, etc. This is quite simply a soundtrack to the popular culture that most of us have been exposed to over the last two decades.
It's the 2nd half of HIStory that can only classed as a "proper" Jackson album and when you consider quite how strong many of the tracks really are, it's unfair to discard this as the beginning of the end for "The King Of Pop". The 15 songs that make up the 2nd disc yet again demonstrates MJ's diversity, with several songs almost impossible to categorise. This is both good and bad. Good becasue none of us want to listen to an album where every songs sounds the same, bad however as some songs quite simply don't fit in with the overall vibe of the album.
Onto the actual songs. They Don't Care About Us and Earth Song are breathtaking. There's not another popular artist around in the world releasing music anywhere near this creative. These songs could quite comfortably be wedged between any of Jackson's more famous classics.

HIStory is a double album, which is a greatest hits/studio album.

History Begins:-
On disc 1, which is the greatest hits disc, it has the classic songs from Michael Jackson from 1979 - 1991. The songs are very good and features songs from the albums Off The Wall (1979), Thriller (1982), Bad (1987) & Dangerous (1991).

History Continues:-
On disc 2, which is the studio album, which features all of his new material in 1995.

These are the ratings i give the songs and why:-

1. Scream (featuring Janet Jackson) 10/10 - a brilliant song with Michael and sister Janet. It is aimed at the media for the things Michael went through, and it has a good beat and and makes you wanna scream too!

2. They Don't Care About Us 10/10 - This song had some bad reviews over the time, but i think its a great song, got a good reggae style beat, and has powerful lyrics.

3. Stranger In Moscow 10/10 - this is a nice R&B ballad, and has nice verses and has great emotions in it.

4. This Time Around (featuring The Notorious B.I.G) 10/10 - i never thought MJ would collaborate with a rapper, but this Rap/Hip-Hop song really sounds better then most rap songs do, and also has a great chorus and rap verse.

5. Earth Song 10/10 - what a nice song, about wars and stuff what makes our world suck. MJ in this song, really sounds great and it shows such talent in this song, and also the end of the song is BRILLIANT!

6. D.S. 10/10 - sounds like the songs "Dangerous" and "Beat It" bunched together. This song is aimed at Tom Sneddon, who strip searched MJ in 1993, also this song features Slash.

7. Money 9/10 - This song is very different to normal MJ songs, it has a different sound altogether, and it has such a great chorus.
