    Default Do you listen to the posthumous albums?

    Michael and Xscape?
    I've never listened to either of them. I liked Love Never Felt So Good when I heard it on the radio, but I always think If Michael wanted this stuff out, he would've released it when he was alive. I get why some people like getting new stuff, but the snippets I've heard from both albums have been subpar with horrible modern production.

    What says you?

    Of course! Xscape original versions of songs are glimpses at genius at work! Michael is strong album too (except 3 fakes).

    I do, it's tough because I feel like they did a better job with the none Cascio tracks than the stuff on Xscape. The ones on Michael sound closer to what he would go made. I listen to the original versions on Xscape more than anything else.

    Yes. I love "Xscape".

    Not a huge fan of "Michael" but I do enjoy "Hollywood Tonight" and "Behind The Mask" from that album.

    I rate Xscape as high as some of MJ's normal albums. Even the remixed version lol!

    A Place Without No Name - in XScape is genius. I love it. There are some real treasures on that album.

    Yes I do. Maybe not as much as I listen to HIStory these days - but especially Xscape demos are great IMO.

    And Love Never Felt So Good is always uplifting.
    https://www.youtube.com/user/Ahess/videos - me dancing MJ - many years ago.

    I would be really glad if you rated or/and commented the videos. Thanks

    I only listen to the original demo versions of the songs (sometimes to the Remixes) from the two postumos album on YouTube from Sven Nelsons Channel.
    I don't have the albums at home cause I don't want to support Sony.
    What they did with this albums was not right for me.
