    The soundtrack to Cirque du Soleil's touring MJ extravaganza isn't as revelatory--or as appealing trippy--as Cirque's Beatles-themed LOVE. [25 Nov 2011, p.71]

    Immortal is also, at its worst, way cheesier than "Love," filled with easy-listening strings, spoken-word interludes buried in spooky echo, and curious pacing.

    With Jackson's world-remaking grooves as a guide, even the gaudiest setting can be a party.

    The new versions can be garish (pseudo-tribal drums and jungle noises in "Ben"?) or touching.

    Not much here is new: a few alternative takes (including a great one of "ABC") and some previously unheard studio banter.

    Producer Kevin Antunes never recontextualizes the original recordings; he favors hits-on-parade medleys, letting the hooks--the melodies, the rhythms--sink in before moving on to the next snippet.

    This is the best remix album of Michael Jackson's songs. When I heard the first track, suddenly I start to dance. The beats, the sound effects, the editing: all added to magic to Jackson's songs. Michael's songs is wonderful, and this album made it really really wonderful. Full Review »
