However, "Break of Dawn" does not seem to be a #1 single on any chart, and I don't believe it was actually released. So, it counts as a "new" song, I guess.
Either way, Michael Jackson has just as much justification as The Beatles for putting out an album titled "Number Ones." However, it is clearly a marketing choice and not a great title for the album. But is it definitely not a lie.
This is a great album, regardless of whether each song reached the top of the charts or not. Maybe the could have called it Five decades, because no other artist (not even the beatles) has had #1 hits in five decades (60s, 70s, 80s, 90s,00s).
Theres tracks here that everyone will remember, starting with the the 1978 classics right up to present day with the new 'one more chance'. It's a CD that shows almost 26 years of work and is a great example of how music have changed over that time.
For those of us who already own many of Jacksons other albums such as Thriller, Bad, HIStory etc, then theres nothing much new to be found on this release, although it's ideal for a one stop listen to all the hits rather than trawlling through your CD's trying too find Billie Jean or Smooth Criminal for example!
Anyone familiar with Jacksons chart positions over the years, will notice that not all tracks featured have hit the No.1 spot, but still, who cares? it wouldn't be as good a listen if hits like Smooth Criminal, You rock my world etc had been left out.
For starters, this is just one disc with 18 tracks as opposed to a daunting two or more CD catalogue, and has a succinct yet wide reaching track listing. Opening with "Don't Stop Till You Get Enough" and moving chronologically through his alleged European Numbers 1s right up until "One More Chance", which I personally hadn't heard of and certainly wasn't a Number 1 anywhere of note, this CD covers all the songs that have become such a given in pop music : "Thriller" "Billie Jean" "Smooth Criminal" and "Black or White" just four of the list of great tracks to be found here. The term "Number 1" is used loosely obviously, but it doesn't particularly matter that the last couple of the tracks weren't even hits in most places let alone chart toppers as the entire albums flows brilliantly and all the tracks are great songs in their own right anyway.
This album would be particularly good for people who are looking to really know Michael Jackson's music better, and for those who want a shorter but still satisfyingly long album of favourite hits to dance and sing along to; in short, an album that will just never get old. A great buy and worth every penny!
For anyone whose even mildly interested in Michael Jackson, or people who just want an album full of songs that are time-less, original and truely amazing- this album is for you! It's a perfect gift as well, the only danger with this album is it mgiht get worn out through listening to it so much! If you are debating over what album to get this christmas- get this one, you will not be dissappointed! Just goes to show that Michael isn't about to hand over his crown just yet, thankfully!
