HOW IT WORKS

THE UK'S BEST SELLING
music album

After 2010's self titled, 'Michael' album release, Michael Jackson's estate have given his fans another compilation far more worthy than its predecessor. A perfectionist about his music, Jackson released albums were released on a painfully slow timeline, in fact he's released more new music in the five years since his death than in the 12 years before it. Michael recorded more songs than he ever released, that means there's a lot of unreleased material in his archives. Like 'Michael', this latest posthumous release is a compilation of Jackson outtakes that includes material from decades ago, freshly "re-produced" by L.A. Reid, Timbaland, and others to give it a contemporary style. Some of the most enjoyable songs are the oldest, the oldest being the 1983 opening track "Love Never Felt So Good", written by Jackson and Paul Anka its infectious disco groove and Jackson's youthful-sounding falsetto makes this undoubtedly the best rack on the album. Other tracks such as 'Chicago', 'Loving You, and 'Slave To The Rhythm' have been smoothly brought back to life by talented producer Timberland, who worked with the likes of Epic Records CEO L.A. Reid, Justin Timberlake, Stargate and Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins to produce this eight-song record that will not disappoint fans of the King of Pop.
