    If I'd never heard the leak, I'd have been happy with the song. Instead, I listen to it with great disappointment because of what Lenny did to it.

    Another Day is great..Michael sounds heavenly...Although, I do prefer the leaked version..Much more powerful....Mike's voice saves the new version....Lenny's guitar is slightly souless to me...

    I've never heard the leaked version of "Another Day." I just never sought it out. Does anyone have a working link to the leaked version? Thanks much!

    (Well, duh, I should have checked Youtube. Do all the leaked versions have the DJ?)

    The leaked version has such a raw power to it which this one lacks IMO..Not that this version is bad, but the new instrumentals don't meld like they did in the early version. It's like part of the song is going off in one direction, and Michael's vocals go off in another. They don't fit at all IMO. It was PERFECT the way it was, and I was so excited to hear it in it's entirety, but I was so disappointed when I found out what they did to it..Yeah, it's cool that Dave Grohl play drums on it and all, but I find myself listening to the fan made version made from the leak 100x more.

    Everyone was psyched about the leaked snippet, and I really cannot understand why they would change something that was so powerful.

    Exactly, after I was playing the new MJ album in the car with my Grandmother, she really loved Another Day, but when I played her the leaked version she said it was "much more powerful and soulful". I still do not know why they changed it... they should have also kept in Michael's backing vocals on it instead of Lenny's. Michael's is just much more powerful, the comparison doesn't even compare.


    @flutinggnee: There is only one leaked version, but there are fan-made songs made out of the leak which are better than the one on the album in my opinion.

    Honestly, for me all of the legitimate tracks are tainted by association.

    Another Day is alright. Some of Mike's vocals are great. Just feel it's a bit weak, especially the way his vocals kick in... 'my liiiiife'... I can understand why he didn't release it. That's what we're actually looking at here, songs that Michael Jackson never released. So it's hard to take that fact out of the equation. Which raises the question, 'why?'.

    Behind The Mask is wonderful. And vocally it's a tour de force. Another Day's not on the same level.

    By that logic, all the 'new' tracks on The Ultimate Collection, Special Editions, T25 etc wouldn't have seen the light of day.

    And I'd be tempted to agree as the vast majority are well below MJ's par, which is why he didn't release them on official albums. But then every so often a real gem is thrown up such as We've Had Enough, If You Don't Love Me, and half of Michael including Another Day, but especially Behind The Mask.

    Michael Jackson is my drug. I'm addicted to him. He's very important to me. It's hard to explain how someone whom I have never met before can mean so much to me. I guess Michael won't be Michael if he's not that magical. MEHDI

    Yes. And your point is?

    Refer to Michael's speech at the Michael Jackson day. Where he talks about giving Sony some old songs to get out of his contract. Literally tossing them aside. That should be indication enough as to his feelings regarding these tracks.

    Yes there were great unreleased songs. But he didn't release them for a reason. And i'm not one to argue with Michael Jackson's quality control.

    My point was, that on that point I'm inclined to agree with you. I made a thread many moons ago discussing that 'Unreleased songs should stay unreleased'. At that point all the unreleased songs that had finally seen the light of day had done nothing but dilute Michael's work.

    Like I put above there have been one or two gems, but on the whole I'd have been happier if they'd either not been released or used as B sides.

    But this thread's about Another Day and that is strong enough and worthy to be on a Michael Jackson album.

    If you insist. I respectfully disagree. And I'll agree with Michael's own decision on this particular track.

    Behind The Mask? Killer. And as Arklove says, sexy as hell. But Another Day (this version) is too tame for my tastes.

    I agree BTM is killer and I would say deserves it's place on any MJ album. Perhaps I should put my own post into context and say Another Day would deserve it's place on Invincible. i.e. it's as good as some of the best tracks on there.
