    Wow that is quite a change but it did make me listen to the album again lol though its been ages 😊

    yeah, unbreakable would have been a better title, I agree.
    but I won’t touch the track list though. It has its memories so...
    I love how it ends on Threatened like a sublime message of ‘don’t mess with me’ as I’m ‘unbreakable’

    omg. I can’t believe you skipped “heartbreaker” 😮 It’s one of my faves and the first song that stuck in my head with the album was just out.

    Yeash, I do love the songs you squeezed into it but then it isn’t Vince anymore the way we remember it.

    As the memories are flooding in since the album is blasting here lol 🎶😎🎶

    I quite liked "Heartbreaker" when I first listened to it in 2009; I remember constantly playing one YouTube video with the song back then. Listening to it now, though, I think it was too NSYNC-ish for MJ.

    I don't know about the order, but i would make:

    Unbreakable
    Heartbraker
    Whatever Happens
    Blue Gangsta
    Shout
    You Rock My World
    We've Had Enough
    Threatened
    Butterflies
    She Was Loving Me
    Slave to The Rhythm
    Heaven Can Wait

    I believe that the best Michael's songs and versatility vocals are in the Invicible Era, but the best songs didn't go to the album. For me the tracklist was messy, with too many songs and a lot of then are not so good as the unreleased ones.

    Cool thread, it always seems like a tough subject for fans

    I would have shortened it to 10 songs 11 max
    I would have separated or not used all the opening 3 tracks
    Not used a lot of the ballads. Even though as Mike said "they make a Michael Jackson album" I think too many can seem insincere, which is something Mike wasn't
    Probably would have shortened some of the tracks themselves. I'm all for riding a groove out but timing is everything
    I would have had the tracks have Michael's own backing vocals only, I feel this was a huge mistake of the record
    Most importantly Don't Walk Away wouldn't be anywhere near the record

    Unbreakable

    1. Unbreakable (Cut at 5.47)
    2. Threatened
    3. Xscape
    4. Break Of Dawn
    5. We've Had Enough
    6. You Rock My World (no intro)
    7. Butterflies
    8. Whatever Happens
    9. Speechless
    10. A Place With No Name

    I would have a finished version (if there was one) of Beautiful Girl as a bonus track

    I wouldn't. I showed some music friends Invincible in a thing where we all put forward an album [10 of us]. Invincible came out top, none of them had heard it before.

    This would have been a killer album! Though I personally adore 2000 watts and would have included it

    Thanks man! Yeah 2000 Watts was a close call, I like that song too. Michael and Teddy always seem to deliver the goods

    Default Re: What Changes Would You Make to Invincible's Track List?

    OK, for a first post, this is going to be controversial lol.
    Here is my track list:

    You Rock My World
    Threatened
    Heartbreaker
    Break of Dawn
    2000 Watts
    Invincible
    Privacy
    Don’t Walk Away
    Whatever Happens
    Unbreakable

    I would also rename the album to Unbreakable too.
    I've cut quite a few tracks and to me Invincible is Michael weakest album, always has been.
    Maybe it's because of the (seemingly) hundreds of co-writers he used that time around.
    Also, and I may be alone with this opinion, I have a feeling that the fact that his co-producers
    and co-writers were so obviously and so heavily influenced by Michael's early work, didn't help.
    Butterflies is the biggest example of that to me. It sounds a bit like Michael immitating early
    Michael (to me!). But that's not the only reason I left it off the track list. I also don't like
    the naked sound of it. It sounds like an unfinished demo to me.
    Along with Heaven Can Wait the melodies are too monotonous for my liking. Heaven Can Wait also
    sounds very nineties to me and not in a good way.

    Speechless and You Are My Life sound very generic to me musically. Very simple. I guess that's
    what he was going for, but I really really don't like it.
    And The Lost Children is the same for me. The predictable and overly simple harmonies and chords
    and the melody itself. It's not for me.
    Cry - it just makes me cringe. ""If we all cry at the same time tonight" - I mean, come on...

    To me the strongest track is Unbreakable, even though it's also kinda immitaty. The bridge alone
    is simply to die for. Classic MJ I am tempted to say. The bridge of "Unbreakable" is my favorite
    bit of the album.
    The other highlight is Whatever Happens, although I seem to remember that Michael sounds kinda
    nasal on it. But the story he's telling and the drama, it just hits the spot.
    I also really like You Rock My World, even though I really could have done without Chris Tucker
    and his jokes in the intro. I don't like spoken intros anyway.

    So yeah, that's it.
