    That can be said for every release. At least doing a stripped down style with very little actual music gives less opportunity to screw up.unless they get in pitbull and the xscape remix producer (got a brain freeze on his name!) In to do it 😁

    I'd be down with it. There are fan-made acoustic versions of Best of Joy and Give In to Me out there that are really good, so I'd like to see how other songs would sound. ^.^

    I would love nothing more. I'm a big fan of acoustic songs and it's a shame that MJ never did one during his lifetime. I believe acoustic album would be amazing and it would go down well with MJ fans and the general public.

    I'd like it but I'll admit when he was living I wanted him to actually record it so we could habe an alternative vocal arrangement and style.

    That would have been so unique and brought new life to songs.

    It seems he did not want to swim with the tide at that time.

    Besides, after the BAD Tour, he knew that his voice was never the same again.

    His vocal chords were damaged from those BAD Tour shows & he was advised by his doctors to preserve his voice as much as he could.

    An MTV Unplugged performance & album (including all the necessary vocal preparations) would have strained his voice even more.

    But MJ needed to save his voice for more important things (such as, new studio albums that his contract demanded).

    In retrospect, I think MJ did the right thing by avoiding to do what everyone was doing at that time.

    I don't enjoy acoustic guitars in general. piano on the other hand..

    as some have mentioned, it has to be the right song. not sure if it would work with something like 'startin' somethin'. I actually prefer the piano demo of 'love never felt so good' to the contemporary one. still, I wouldn't want a whole album or concert of that. part of what makes a song unique are the creative additions made in the studio. much of that gets taken away in live settings. i'd love to hear more demos of Michael beat-boxing and singing, that show his process though!
