[NEW RELEASES]Michael Jackson


To be frank, Michael Jackson is not on the list of my favorite artists. Perhaps, one of the reasons is that I was too young to enjoy his music in the heyday of his career. The Michael Jackson I know is rather based on rumors surrounding his health, finances and sexual tendencies that ensued in the latter years.

But listening to this 35-track best album, I got to admit, I was tapping my foot and nodding my head.

As the “king of pop” Jackson has released several best-of albums already, but this is the first whose tracks are hand-picked by his Korean fans. It has also been released in limited numbers. This makes it the album to get for local Jackson fans, or just for those who love pop.

As expected “Billie Jean” is the No. 1 track as Koreans’ all-time Jackson favorite, followed by “Beat It” and “Black or White.” More softer tunes like “You Are Not Alone,” “Man in the Mirror,” and “You Are My Life” provide nice little breaks between the strong beats. By Kim Hyung-eun
