The singles from this are all very good. I voted for the anti-Semetic one mostly because it was on the radio when I drove into work today. I still can't believe it's a Michael Jackson song (for years I was making a tortured "he must be talking about namecalling there" argument because that level blatant, unmasked hate coming out of Michael's mouth is wholly at odds with the entire media image he put forward for the rest of his career).

Yes it's waaaay "Scream" if only for Janet poking fun at her evening news-surfing Rhythm Nation self. But there's a surprising lack of filler here. I'll take the vocal fox chase in the second verse of "This Time Around" over anything on Bad. In fact, same goes for the scabrous bitch slap "D.S.," the Bacharachy pastoral "Earth Song," and Michael pissed at the supermarket on "Tabloid Junkie." And the title track is prog at its bitterest.

Yeah, it's easily the best MJ song of the 90s. Too bad about the choice of lyrics.

Tuomas, Friday, 26 June 2009 13:32 (eight years ago) Permalink

"Remember The Time" and "Who Is It?" were also MJ songs of the 90s, both of which are better than "They Don't Care About Us".

Actually, if you can track down the Michael Jackson/Global Communication mashup done by Matt Tuozzo back around 2000, you will gain a much stronger appreciation for "Remember The Time".

I have such a huge soft spot for 'You are not Alone.' Not the video tho.

baleen, the krill queen (Abbott), Friday, 26 June 2009 16:23 (eight years ago) Permalink

so I've started to listen to this over the last few days. far from being as horrible as I thought yet far from being great. I don't love anything here but some some nice things here and there.

"scream", "don't care" and "earth song" still don't work for me.
"childhood"'s lyrics are so openly autobiographical it's creepy.
"not alone" is an ok r-kelly ballad but much too long with the neverending key changes.
I really like the heavy beat in the intro of "history". the completely different sound/production between the verses and the chorus is... weird. can't say if I like that or not for now.
"come together" is horrible (but mostly because I hate the original).
"stranger in moscow" might be the best track but I have a soft spot for "smile" which is very sweet and has a sinatra/old school feeling plus a positive and joyful track is quite rare in MJ's output, especially after "thriller"...

overall, some weird/interesting production ideas, fast/hard tracks still don't do it for me (and they haven't since "bad", basically, mostly because I don't like the drum sounds and beats he uses) but mostly, a real lack of good/great songwriting.

AleXTC, Wednesday, 1 July 2009 10:48 (eight years ago) Permalink

I voted "Stranger in Moscow." I do think "They Don't Care About Us" is a good song excepting the obvious, but I always liked the melody of "Moscow" (the "how does it feel, how does it feel?" in particular) a lot.

Matos W.K., Wednesday, 1 July 2009 10:51 (eight years ago) Permalink

"remember the time" trumps everything listed here exponentially IMHO

listened to "blood on the dancefloor" yesterday and got totally distracted from what I was working on not to mention creeped out, especially by "morphine" when he chants about "demerol". sounds like a cry for help, in retrospect. have to say I don't think the songs/performances on BOTDF come close to the teddy riley tracks on dangerous. michael doesn't seem to have made his peace with pop's shift from melody to rhythm-over-all.

"stranger in moscow" has really nice melodies indeed, including the "how does it feel" part, and I really like the intro build up.
"earth song" is a bit boring and overlong, for me.
I'm not sure I'm ready to handle "blood on the dancefloor". It really seems awful to me (but that's what I was thinking about history, so...).

AleXTC, Wednesday, 1 July 2009 11:26 (eight years ago) Permalink

a lot of his 90s stuff is better than i thought it would be/remembered it being, but its still not amazing. a few gems here and there but a lot of that industrial kinda production doesnt do much for me, and its not dated very well. i know its tired to say 'what if he kept working with quincy jones' but i do still wonder. the stuff they did together had more clarity and even on bad, just seemed more refined (his later collaborators didnt seem to have as good an idea of how to mix R&B with pop as q). the songwritings still more than solid, he still had a good grasp of pop structure, it wasnt like prince where it became severely hit and miss, but the melodies werent as strong anymore. i think i like the ballads best from his latter period (apart from rock my world, i only ever listened to butterflies - maybe his last great song). a lot of the faster/harder stuff was just too jerky/overcooked/busy. live instrumentation dissapearing from mainstream black pop didnt do him many favours.

thats wrong anyway - a lot of his singing became much more rhythmic than melodic if you listen to half of the late 90s/early 00s stuff.

I always liked They Don't Care About Us, it's like his version of Flowers of Romance, but how did they ever even let him get away with those lyrics? Didn't somebody at the studio say "that's not a good idea"...

Funny you would say that Jackson never made his peace over pop's shift from melody to rhythm since you could argue he populiarized it with "Don't Stop TIl You Get Enough."

I'm voting for "Stranger in Moscow" because it contains my favorite misheard lyric. For quite some time I thought Jackson was singing "stranger in my skull" instead of the "stranger in Moscow."

this album really wheezes out kinda pathetically, doesn't it? Things are going very well through "Come Together", "You Are Not Alone" is perfectly decent (though the remix on Blood on the Dancefloor is better), then things get weird with "Tabloid Junkie" and fizzle completely at "History". I guess I'm he glad he mostly saved the syrupy ballads until the end---although they're unsettling ballads, not sweet-syrupy, more like the kind of syrup you get your foot stuck in in Candy Land.

I got a weekend's work through my local Job Centre, selling merch at the Wembley History tour dates. Amazing show. We spent the concert walking through the crowds, selling outrageously overpriced chintz. The top seller was a Michael Jackson glove-on-a-stick, doing a peace sign. If you turned it on, there was a strobe light effect in the fingers, so you could wave it in the air during Earth Song. I sold one to Jo Whiley!

im sure he did for some, but not all of it. watch the "This Is It" documentary on his final tour for solid evidence he wasn't just a drugged up robot puppet they pushed out on stage. there is an amazing improv version of "Beat It" that is just him singing w a drummer and bass player.

Yeah, Michael Jackson was pretty much the definition of "superproductionintensive" - the guy liked to throw the chequebook at pretty much everything he did: his music, his videos, his stage productions. Madonna and Prince did production intensive and chereographed shows too, but neither of them did "big budget" like Michael Jackson, who seemed to want to take everything to the most ludicrous extreme possible.

"Invicible" has a couple of good songs ("Rock my world" particularly) but the "hard" stuff is weak with no groove at all and the ballads are mostly ott corny (and everything is too long).
it's a shame since there were so many possibilities to make a great album considering the many talents in rnb at that specific time... especially since it turned out to be his final record.

In fact, thinking about it, Invincible felt quite a great deal more "low key" than previous MJ records, even if the album apparently had millions thrown at it during production. There seemed to be very little promotion, or any huge budget videos, or any tour or anything. It seemed to flop the moment it was released, which was odd for a Michael Jackson record - especially since HIStory had shown that he still had a huge fanbase.

AlXTC from Paris, Friday, 23 June 2017 13:58 (two months ago) Permalink

Ah, no wonder I have no recollection of 'Butterflies', it was only a single in the US. 'Cry' was released in the UK, but was a flop - only making it to #25. Frogbs is correct, I'd forgotten about this but Jackson was feuding with Sony at the time, hence the album sinking like a stone. It was a huge difference to Thriller, Bad, Dangerous and even HIStory where virtually every track seemed like it was going to be a single - those records were really promoted into the ground.

I mean the other thing is, Invincible is just kind of a sucky album, not in a "disappointing but somewhat redeemable" way like History, it just...sucks. Amazing that someone with so much talent and cash and access to any producer on the planet could put out something so dull and unmemorable. Though I do still dig "You Rock My World", maybe due to it being one of the few MJ singles that wasn't pounded into the ground
