May 12, 2014Timbaland and Reid evoke the Michael Jackson we all love and miss, finding songs that are worthy and giving them arrangements that are simultaneously nostalgic and modern. It's a difficult trick to pull off but they largely succeed, so XSCAPE is a worthy and memorable coda to Jackson's career.
May 20, 2014The genius of Michael Jackson shines through on this album. Very refreshing to hear the pure vocal as the centerpiece of this album. The mix sounds like classic Michael without a bunch of studio hocus pocus. Hearing this album makes me appreciate the talent of this man and miss his presence in music today even more.… Expand
May 14, 2014The album provides a sneak to king of pop's music from 80's & the 90s and probably how mj would have sounded if he had released an album now being alive could be a bit different i believe but still the songs feel fresh as if he had song yesterday the music is great .The album recaptures moments of classic Mj.There are moments on Xscape when classic Michael Jackson is recaptured. From the electronic womps and finger clicks But it's on the opening cut and lead single where Jackson's spirit is fully felt.The album is surely to top the charts as its no 1 in 50 countries already.The best songs from the album that are sure to be chart toppers are Love Never Felt So Good,slave to the rythm,A place with no

The usual limited vocal gimmicks.
His initial fame I can understand - but his enduring fame is mystifying.
