Product Description

Product Description

Special edition reissue of the Grammy Award winning fifth studio album from the late American singer-songwriter and musician. The album features the singles 'Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough', 'Rock With You', 'Off the Wall', 'She's Out of My Life' and 'Girlfriend'.

Amazon.co.uk

Given the pace of Michael Jackson's post-Thriller release schedule, it's striking that Off the Wall appeared between two albums--Destiny (1978) and Triumph (1980)--which the twentysomething phenomenon made with his brothers. Aided by richly detailed but not overdone production, Off the Wall defined how much Michael might do. Tracks such as "Don't Stop 'til You Get Enough", "Rock with You", "Burn this Disco Out" and the title track not only consolidated his dancefloor power, but showed just how soulful and varied his vocals could get on up-tempo material. Artistic role models such as James Brown and Jackie Wilson echo through the mixes, but these were Jackson's leaps forward. The addition of pure pop confection--Paul McCartney's "Girlfriend", Stevie Wonder's "I Can't Help It"--further fleshed out the star's young-adult persona and helped make Off the Wall among the most fondly remembered of all his solo work. This "special edition" features two magic home demos and entertaining, insightful interviews with producer Quincy Jones and "Rock with You" composer Rod Temperton. --Rickey Wright

This has definately got to be placed in the greatest albums of all time. This was Michael's first, true solo album and is just one of his greatest pieces of work. However, the reason that this album is special is quite simply...because it's just darn good!!
The album opens with the classic disco anthem "Don't stop til you get enough" and runs smoothly into "Rock with you" and the funky "Working Day and night." These three tunes combine with the title track "Off the wall" and "Get on the floor" to provide 5 simultaneous disco, foot-tapping classics.
The mood changes as the album goes on to the classic soul-smoothie song "She's out of my life," which has undoubtedly got to be the best slushy tune he's ever made, as it's not OTT. Not that any of MJ'S love songs are OTT!! But "She's out of my life" is his best slow tune to date!
Check out the album track "It's the falling in love" with it's catchy chorus and classic MJ harmonies.
Let's face it, both Michael Jackson and Quincy Jones, who produced this album, are both musical geniuses! The combination of talent from Michael, Quincy and Rod Temperton helped to produce one of the best soul albums of all time!
Start your MJ collection by buying this album and listening to the remastered classic tracks and the extra-features! You can listen to this over and over again without ever getting bored. GO AND BUY IT!

If sometimes you yearn for some funk, you've come to the right place! Jackson's 'Off The Wall' was a milstone in his career, giving us a glimpse of what he was capable of as a solo artist. With fantastic arrangments by the legendery Quincy Jones, each number sends musical shivers up your spine as you listen to the fantastic musicians play and marvel at Jackson's impecable delivery. Buy it!

This remastered edition of Michael Jackson's critically acclaimed album relights the sparkle of the late seventies disco era in a tantalizing ride that encompasses soul, funk, pop and dance. It has since become a milestone in black music and is among the best albums ever recorded in the history of music, thanks in part to the excellent Quincy Jones production, which invigorates each of the songs through its fresh sound. One of Off The Wall's greatest appeals is that each track is individual and unique, hence creating an ever-changing soundscape from the first song to the last. In fact, the songs are so accomplished, so incredibly self-contained, that each one is of first-rate standard.
The album begins with the high-spirited, plain excellent Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough, a bubbling adventure in dance, before delving into the wonderful vertigo of Rock With You. Off The Wall's other highlights, namely the title track, the genuinely emotive, yet not mawkish, She's Out Of My Life, and the addictive harmonic sweetness of Stevie Wonder's I Can't Help It, continue to delight and intrigue the senses and establish the album's superlative status. Jackson's vocal talents, in addition to the development of his new sound, provide the backbone for musical pleasures that were on the horizon, in the form of the splendid, if slightly overbearing, Thriller and the rousing Bad, two other must-haves in Epic's wise reissues of this great artist's catalogue.

Have to agree with the previous reviewer - this rivals the magnificent Thriller, and in places, surpasses it. The introduction, MJ's spoken voiceover, to Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough, (The force... it's got a lot of power..")is spine tingling. No music lover should be without this album; it provided a template for decades of (others') music to come, in my opinion. The various croonings, the backing vocals and Michael's "Oohs" are sexy too! The music presents the perfect balance of light, funky and seductive.

The contribution by British songwriter Rod Temperton must not be overlooked either. The sultrily sung 'Rock With You', the joyous 'Off the Wall' and the quirky 'Burn This Disco Out', were all penned by this man who went on to write the track 'Thriller'. Neither must the fanatstic percussive elements that are the hallmark of this album.

The Paul Mcartney penned 'Girlfriend' really suits Jackson's voice and youth at this time while She's Out of My Life has become his very own 'My Way. 'I Can't Help It', written by Stevie Wonder, is a delicate jazzy number that showcases Jackson's voice superbly. This album won only one Grammy at the time (for best r n b vocal, I think) but its worth has stood the test of time and become a favourite with music critics.

I can't recommend this album strongly enough. I'm passionate about it!

With off the wall Michael Jackson would step out from the shadow of his father, and stand even further out from his siblings. He was already considered a brilliant talent, and a young genius as Stevie Wonder had once been thought as. But this album would take him to the next level. Not long after this Michael would make what is regarded as his best album (thriller) and off the wall is often seen as a prologue to that album but in my opinion Off the wall stands up on its own two feet as a classic, and in some respects can even rival Thriller.

1. Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough

This is the track that is talked about most when discussing the album, it kicks things of at a fast pace, and everyone remembers the slow build up before Michael screams and truely gets the album started. It is probably the albums stand out track which Michael would be happy with as he wrote it. Lyricly its not perfect but something in the music really gets you going. 10/10

2. Rock With You

Rock with you is another track that is often remembered from this album as it was played a lot in the discos popular at the time of release. In my opinion it doesn't stand as strong as the jacksons big disco hit 'shake your body down to the ground' and I have always felt this song doesn't stand up as well as some of the other songs on the album - Its very much of the era. If you are new to this album you may not understand what some of the fuss is about this song but at the time it was a huge hit and quite inovative, so I wont knock it down too much. 9/10

3. Workin' Day And Night

often underlooked but I feel this is even better than rock with you.
