The majority of the second disc's tracks were written and produced by Jackson, often in conjunction with collaborators. The new material prepared for the album was recorded during late and early , and several of the 15 new songs pertain to the accusations and Jackson's mistreatment in the media, specifically the tabloids. The songs' themes included environmental awareness, isolation, greed, and injustice. Jackson stated that he did not mean any offense and on multiple occasions denied anti-Semitism. The dispute regarding the lyrics ended with Jackson re-recording them. In a judge ruled that the song was plagiarized and the song was subsequently banned from radio stations in Belgium. The album was generally well received by music critics, although the first disc received more acclaim than the newly created material on the second.
Recordyear72 October 2, Report. I'm glad I still have my original CD not edited GarionOrb September 28, Report. So much surface noise! Why they couldn't give these albums a proper reissue is beyond me. It's incredibly dark overall and really reflects the deep turmoil he was being put through at the time.
I feel like these kinds of songs expressed a very emotional side of Michael that had never been seen before.
Of course, there's also some other great tracks on here like his incredible cover of the Beatles "Come Together" which he performed at the end of the Moonwalker short film. The title track is a masterpiece and I love the mellow, somber atmosphere that "Stranger in Moscow" provokes.
Michael Jackson was and always will be an array of genius, talent, and authenticity, both in his music and personality. IMO the bigger downside to this edition is the censoring which is not the worst thing ever either, MJ doesnt curse that much, maybe the outer sleeve is not that great, but meh, i can work with that.
Would recommend it to anyone wanting this album on vinyl except to the higher purists. Reply Notify me 1 Helpful.

Starting with the armature — the skeletal base of the sculpture that acts as the femur, holding the clay in place —Walczak and her two assistants began the molding process. Using over pounds of wet clay, she sculpted day and night for a week straight. When the close detail was finished, she sent stills and videos of the original inch sculpture to Sony and Jackson, who provided his own notes.
He was particularly critical of his face — he knew what a nasolabial fold was. Following a week for alterations, Sony gave Walczak the green light to start the casting process, which morphs the water-based clay into the basis for a plasterlike silicone mold that becomes the permanent material. This mold is what you see on the HIStory cover.
Then, using gridlines and a permanent marker, Walczak added over 10, polygons to the hardened cast in preparation for the digitizing process, which took place in Los Angeles. Human Nature though is among Jacksons finest and it is pretty much unforgivable to leave it out- perhaps with 5 of Thrillers 9 tracks already on the disc they didn't want people to stop downloading Thriller by adding a sixth track.
Jackson is one of the few artists from whom you should probably download all the first 4 of his original albums even if you are quite a casual fan since 'Hits' collections will inevitable leave out a sizable number is superb songs. If you do only want a hits collection, however, then 'The Essential' is your best bet feauting almost all of Jacksons biggest hits from the Jackson 5 to Invincible without missing out such great tracks as Human Nature, Dirty Diana, Smooth Criminal and Will You Be There as this collection does.
For its many glaring ommissions I will have to give Disc 1 4. Disc 1- 4. Scream- This is the first track of the new album and its quite a decent opener, similar in many ways to the kind of material on 'Dangerous' and its angry lyrics really set the tone for the album.
The song is a duet with his sister Janet Jackson who had become one of the biggest female stars in the world by that point.
Lyrically its decent enough and the chorus is catchy, however the very manufactured backing track in the verses does grate after a while. For the most part the song is just Jackson spitting out against racism and discrimination over what sounds like a military drum style beat. It really gets into gear at the choruses and whilst its not perfect at all, its a very good song and was one of the most original hits in the charts- 4. Stranger In Moscow- Jacksons long time pianist collaborator said he felt this was Jacksons strongest and most mature songs and I would have to agree.
Its arguably the best song on the album and whilst it isnt as catchy as songs like 'Billie Jean' its among Jacksons best in a way. The song is a rain-soaked ballad that has a real driving quality that sucks you in immediately.
This Time Around- A return to the angry lyrics of the previous tracks, this is one of the many songs aimed directly at the allegations. It also has a rap part towards like that in 'Black Or White' on Dangerous. Earth Song- This was actually written and recorded for Dangerous in For some bizarre reason it was left off that album and became one of this albums biggest hits and is I think the biggest selling single ever in the UK or there abouts.
