    Thanks for starting this thread. I love parts of the Xscape album (Loving You, Xscape and the demos) but a lot of the reworked versions haven't aged well for me.
    Hopefully we won't have to wait too long until we have some new material

    I rate Xscape up there alongside MJ's main albums tbh

    Place with no name is my favourite. I love the re-work of it done by Stargate.

    It's a great album, without a doubt it is the best release post 2009.

    I haven't listen to the whole album yet but from what i listen it's pretty good. you have the original songs/demos that Michael never unrelease and you got people who has remixed with a different beat and tones. i would say it fit with today people and the original songs/demos fit with the older fans. i haven't listen to the whole album yet so my opinion will probably change but right now i give it 3 stars.

    i'm not sure would Michael loved people remixing his unrelease original songs/demos but i know he did say he wanted to try different genres.

    i heard somewhere that the reason these songs was never release because Michael didn't like them and felt they wouldn't be remembered. he's got a point some of these songs not at all remembered but they pretty good. i need to listen the whole album to really say i will remember these songs but i guess since it was after his passing you can't say what Michael had plan for this album.

    i hope the estate will release some more of his unrelease music. i heard there alot in the vault so we got alot of music to last for our lifetime. Thanks Michael.

    I dont like this album except for 2 tracks but the original demos is nice to have.
    I feel Timbaland didnt get Michael at all as MJ loved guitars and instead we get silly video game sounds overdubbing instead of Slash on guitar....or other guitars players.
    DYKWYCA is completely ruined by Mr T IMO
    As it is I play some of the tracks on the Michael 2010 album all the time but Xscape album almost never.

    Xscape was great, the reworks were great (imo) and they released the demos too, which made it feel like they weren't replacing Michael's original work and it gave people who didn't like the reworks, the originals in great quality. I think they got it right.

    I hope we get some new stuff soon and I feel like they were gearing up for a single release before Leaving Neverland dropped, which stopped them in their tracks, so I wouldn't expect anything new for a while now, unfortunately.

    I´m a purist. MJs ´demos´ are great. I LOVE some... - hm, yes, 5 songs.

    In my opinion all the remixes ruined MJs ideas of the original songs. Michael always decided to release his songs in a timeless sound. At the same time he hit with it exactly! the nerve of a specific era. That is MJs unique art! In contrast to that these remixes are opportunistic sounds which follow just current trends in popmusic - which probably will be boring when any next fashion of popmusic production will emerge.

    And then perhaps some people will look for the original songs. Which MJ decided not to release - for reasons he did know... But - we don´t.
    ...Well, after loving me, she said she couldn´t love another...

    I like some songs on Xscape and i'm not too fond of some others like the remake of Place With Name (what they did to that track is inexcusable imo).

    I love the Xscape album. Just bought the deluxe version again. To have both the original AND remixed versions on one album is the best of both worlds. This album still sounds fresh TODAY. I still listen to it almost daily. I never tire of it. It’s up there with my favorite classic MJ albums.

    The original of DYKWYCA is definitely vastly superior. What also annoys me about Timberland is his need to inject himself into the songs he produces. His pointless adlibs are just irritating and distracting.
