    Default Would you like an acoustic album?

    How would you feel about previous MJ songs being remixed into an acoustic album? I know a lot of fans are againts people coming in, and messing with MJ's original vision, and are sick of Greatest Hits albums, but I think an acoustic album could be interesting.

    I think it would be interesting. It would be a nice opportunity to although Michael's vocals to take centre stage and really shine

    The song selection must to be just right though

    Nah...I'm not a big fan of acoustic. Depending on the song, it sometimes takes too much away from it. I'm not sure how well MJ's music would fit with it. Songs like Smooth Criminal and Billie Jean would not work, but maybe Who Is It would.

    I'd much prefer to have an official a cappella album. People would really be reminded what a talented vocalist MJ was.

    Yes, but it would have to be certain songs in a certain style I think. I'd also prefer more rawer, maybe even demo vocals by Michael. It'd add to the intimacy of the tracks.

    An MTV Unplugged album back in the early 90's when everyone was doing them would've been great.

    No. It can be fun if fans make such mixes, but I wouldn't want an official release (not a fan of remixes being released).

    Moreover, a vocal for a beat-driven, rhythmic, locked-into-the-groove track is very different from a vocal suited for acoustic accompaniment. It just wouldn't sound good and wouldn't reflect what Michael could have done if he had really recorded the songs in acoustic arrangements.

    It'd be different of course if you're talking about acoustic demos, such as the SOOML demo that was released. But I doubt there are many of those.

    anything that would allow me to hear Michaels voice clear I'd be down.. I would have liked it if HE recorded an acoustic version of a few songs though.. so we'd hear it sang differently

    Yes! But it has to be the right songs..

    Black Or White (I Think this song could work very well with just acoustic guitars)
    The Way You Make Me Feel
    Dirty Diana (Imagine an acoustic version of this!!)
    Come Togheter!

    Just throwing out some ideas but I would be very open to a project like this. What would be even greater would be if they used unheard takes

    Absolutely- produced and mastered properly. MJ has a unique voice that requires perfection in order for the music to blend with it.

    Great songs. - Scared of the Moon, Smile, Little Susie, You Are Not Alone and Liberian Girl could work too I think.

    Actually maybe even Whatever Happens with just MJ and a guitar could work.

    I would be really glad if you rated or/and commented the videos. Thanks

    No, because Michael is not here to properly arrange it.
