Customer Review

on 11 April 2002
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.
