    Vocally I prefer the version from The Jacksons Live album as the vocal is more complete.

    Both are great, but Triumph is better, so many great songs. Walk right now, Heartbreak Hotel, Can you feel it, Lovely One, Time waits for no one.

    I mean wow, Destiny is alright, but just not that appealing to me. Shake your body and Blame it on the boogie have been done to death. They are played
    all the time, yet why is no one playing anything off Triumph other than Can you feel it.

    The sound of Triumph is better and Michael is all over that album, it was the dress rehearsal for Thriller.

    As respect77 said, Triumph is OTW part 2, and no MJ album collection would be complete without this transitional release from OTW to Thriller. It's a fantastic little album, it has the funk and danceability of OTW, but also the drama and theatrics that were to follow with Thriller. Walk Right Now and Heartbreak Hotel are two of MJ's finest tracks, with or without The Jacksons imo. I always wished MJ would've done Walk Right Now on the Bad tour instead of Lovely One.

    But for me, Destiny wins the race, mainly because it's his most confessional album alongside HIStory. You have the great funky dance grooves of Shake Your Body, Things I Do For You and All Night Dancin, but it's the ballads that are the heart and soul of this album. There's just something very special about songs like Bless His Soul, Push Me Away and That's What You Get (For Being Polite). It is an album of growing pains and familial frustration. It is the first time MJ sounds as if he is singing about something which he has actually lived and you can tell he really poured out his heart on this album.
    Great post! It's why I love Destiny and why the album is so good. The ballads are superb!

    Triumph.

    But my favourite song from the Jacksons (Shake Your Body (Down To The Ground)) is on the Destiny album.

    Seriously? :dropdead:I still love it-it's infectious. I'll turn it up full blast. And he's just adorable in the video to boot.

    I like the way he describes it in "Moonwalk"-how fun it was to sing and 'slur' his words-can't help but smile when he does that.

    I know... for a minute he made me regret not choosing Destiny.

    Then I remembered Heartbreak Hotel and all's well. Triumph, Triumph, Triumph and so forth

    I can't decide, I love them both for being my favorite Jacksons albums. Although, Destiny has superior and meaningful ballads by miles than Triumphm

    Right here right now I'm feeling Triumph! They're both ten out of ten for me! I only voted for Destiny because it's lagging behind but nah they're both stellar!
