    I don't like Butterflies
    Girlfriend is not the worst song on Off The Wall. I think it's Burn This Disco Out
    Can't Let Her Get Away is awesome
    I'm not a huge fan of MJ's Motown solo albums. I do love some songs like Rockin Robin, One Day In Your Life and Music And Me

    The Smooth Criminal hate in here is making me nauseous!

    Mine:

    HIStory is so much better written than any other MJ album.

    The Smooth Criminal video is better than Thriller.

    I don't really care for Remember The Time, especially the video. Jam is miles better.

    Dangerous and Invincible have no Grammys, the rest of Michael's solo albums with Sony do. That's wholly accurate in terms of MJ's albums' quality.

    .
    I agree with all of these, especially the Smooth Criminal video being better than Thriller. To me, Smooth Criminal is the greatest video ever made

    Some serious blasphemy going on in this thread, but this might have shocked me the most:

    -I think You Rock My World, while a good music video that I've watched countless times, was nothing new and essentially a rehash of what he did in the past.
    -The outtakes for Invincible were better than many of the final songs that made it.
    -In saying that, 2000 Watts really isn't that bad of a song. I like it!
    -People find TGIM with Macca really cheesy but Idc I love it so much!
    I agree with these points.. especially about TGIM, I don't care if it's cheesy, I freaking love that song!

    it's the other way around. a lot of fans don't care about or like J5 era and choose to ignore it. and some don't even want to acknowledge it, and they just completely block it out, when talking about his career/life/music/albums/whatever

    I don't listen to J5 stuff that much either. At that time, Michael was singing someone else's songs, there was no creative input from him. It's the elast interesting era of his life for me.

    yeah, but the songs are good I like the songs he sang that were other people's songs as an adult. also, what I am a fan of first of all, is his talent. and we all know he was born with the rare talent that he had. and the way he displayed it from the very young age that he was, is something so incredibly unique. and after all, it IS a part of his career, and I choose to embrace his whole career, and not just some of it, and certainly do not ignore any of it. it is what it is. he was talented his whole life, and it came out in soooo many ways, both as a child and as an adult. I appreciate ALL of it. only speaking for myself here

    The fact I am big fan of Michael Jackson, but that I am a bigger fan of Prince, and my Prince obsession seems to dominate many of my posts on the site. I can't help, I have purple kool aid flowing through my veins. It's like MJ meets the New Power Generation with me!

    What else, sticking with Michael.

    1. I really like Invincible and Michael
    2. I do not mind the fake tracks on Michael, Cascio does a decent impersonation.
    3. There is no filler on Thriller, but I am sick of listening to it.
    4. I think the Jacksons other than Michael and Janet are ignored and completely underrated. They have awesome talents of their own.
    5. Marlon was the Jackson closest to Michael, look at all the publicity photos (Michael is always next to Marlon or leaning on him, Marlon was closest in age and probably the friendliest with Michael, he was easily the most affected at the funeral "Maybe now they will leave you alone")
