i did not like this album much - oops i said it

my fav  is rock my world  - love that one

sorry

I did not like Invincible much either.

I found it to be too soulful and repetitive i.e. Speechless, Your Are My Life, Don't Walk Away, Cry and Whatever Happens  are all extremely similar and there is an extreme lack of variety and creativity.

He tried bringing back the melodies on Unbreakable, Heartbreaker, Invincible, 2000 Watts and Threatened but again, they are all very similar and I find it hard to listen to them without getting bored and skipping them.

You Rock My World and Butterflies are undoubtedly the standout tracks on Invincible but I feel this album is by far his poorest work to date. I think he tried too hard to conform to a modern market and he ended losing himself and sacrificing his unique sound to try to appeal to more fans.

i don't think this is an album where mike sacrificed anything, on the contrary. i think it is most personal album and his strongest one, the most passionate, the most angry. he really shows at which point in his life he is here. it is a very different michael jackson. i think this is part of where his difficulties with sony came from as well, cuz THEY didn't know how to sell that kind of michael jackson to the public and he refused to give in.  and michael was always a 'rocker', so on some numbers, he really lives that out as well, more than in other songs (2000 watts/ privacy).
it is also an important clue album, just listen to 'threatened' and 'unbreakable' in hoax mode.

butterflies gives me chills. beautifully arranged, the harmonies are outstanding! and mike's voice is pure heaven on that track. 'you rock my world' is my personal anthem! (along with 'another part of me')  :mrgreen:

Before 6/25/09, I only owned Off the Wall and Thriller on vinyl....I had never bought a single MJ CD...after 6/25/09, my world changed completely and particularly after I decided to purchase all SEVEN of his albums released as an adult...now, of course, I know them all forwards and backwards...and while I adore each of them for different reasons, I somehow find myself drawn to Invincible the most...there is a maturity to it that is mesmerizing...I love knowing that he had become a father by the time he recorded it....and by far, my favorite ballad is "Don't Walk Away"...when he belts out, "And why? All my dreams are broken, I don't know where we're goin"...it kicks me in the gut everytime!...should have been a single!....also adore "You Rock My World"....great, great dance tune!...if you're reading this and you're unfamiliar with the Invincible album, RUN/don't walk! to your nearest record store or download it off ITunes...it was an amazing feat by Michael that was overshadowed and disrespected by the Sony Machine.

exactly!
after that album, i was eagerly waiting to see what he would come up with next, musically. nothing so far, except 'old stuff'. and 'this is it' was yet another compilation...i love it when mike goes 'rock', like he did in this album. and i just love the way he mixes stuff, he was way ahead of his time with invincible. and sony just didn't know what to do with it, cuz it was so different. plus the overall trouble with their exploitive ways.
some of the tracks could have damn there came out the studio YESTERDAY, you just couldn't do it any better today. to me it's the most perfect album, showing all of mike's musical facets. absolute must-have!

 :mrgreen:

edit: i just pulled the album up. this is what i came up with, being in 'hoax mode':

'heaven can wait' is not a love song, it is a song for paris. he struggles with the thought of leaving her behind in this hoax. the thought of someone else comforting her is disturbing him (don't want nobody else to hold her...). he sings 'my baby girl', which could of course be a girlfriend, but my ex still calls our children 'my baby boy' and 'my baby girl', although they are already teenagers. it's a common term of endearment.
some more 'clips':
'i don't wanna leave my baby alone...there's a chance i take...heaven can wait...maybe i stay...can't be without my baby...i tell the angels 'no'...bring me back to her'  
we all know that paris loves her daddy to pieces and that she was always the one holding mike's hand. and that daddy/ daughter love is always different from the boys. i see that everytime when i see my daughter with her daddy. it's very special and sweet...she's his little princess. nobody can touch that. she gets anything outta daddy with a blink of an eye. no boy can do that. i'm pretty convinced that 'heaven can wait' is a huge clue and it's meant to be for paris.

I think the fans could do a better job of promoting the album than Sony ANNYDAY!

 - after thought...

I used to think that it was a message to the fans, but this makes a lot of sense...i really like this theory :D  :D
