If you think, this is another re-hash of MJ's classic hits. You could not be more wrong. Cirque and Michael Jackson are the perfect combination! And you can hear the LOVE and respect that was put into this CD.The perfect example of poetic synergy!
A need for perfection, and a passion for innovation and creativity.
As MJ has often said “ It has to be the BEST”.
It is hard to pick a favorite but for me -- BEN is a standout. But the addition of a gospel Choir- in "They Dont Care about US' has turned what was already masterpiece - to nothing short of brilliant.
During the Jackson 5 track- I was immediately transformed, back to my childhood and memories of listening to my Jackson 5 records in my basement with my friends. A memory that will always be with me. It is through, Michael's music...friendships and bonds were formed, communities came together and that is the true measure of the legacy. Some have questioned- Why was Michael , SO mysterious ?-
But I believe that there really was no mystery here- Michael told his life story in his music. All you had to do was listening with your heart.
There are some bittersweet emotions when listening- there is the realization that this is what we have left--BUT what a legacy, this man has left behind. It is the ultimate gift.
This CD is a must for every Michael Jackson fan- but there is something here for the new generation of fans.
This CD is a MASTER Class of what made- Michael Jackson, the Greatest Entertainer that EVER LIVED.
