    Default Has Michael ever disappointed you in terms of his studio vocals?

    We talk about how we donít like certain MJ songs, but from what Iíve read on the forum and elsewhere, whenever I see someone go off on a song they donít like, I never hear them say ďHis singing was awful on that one.Ē (If I did, I forgot) How about you? Are the reasons behind why you donít like certain MJ songs ever because of his vocals? Iím curious. This doesnít include live vocals since those can be easy to criticize, just studio vocals.

    No, I don't think I can recall a studio recording that would disappoint me with MJ's vocals. There are some things that I would have done a little differently in terms of background vocals or harmonies but I can't recall that ever concerting the quality of the vocals per se.

    I was disappointed with his vocals on One More Chance. His vocals sounded quite strained.

    I mean... the album Invincible has some great songs on it, but let's be honest, it's not Michael's best. Some songs, imo, don't have the same force on it as others like You Rock My World.

    The only time Michael's vocals have ever ruined a song for me is "Heaven Can Wait."

    No I can't say I have. I don't think some of his vocals on the Invincible album are the best admittedly (when compared to his best) , but they didn't disappoint me at all

    Quite the opposite, Michael's vocals elevate some songs, (Just Good Friends, Keep The Faith, Can't Let Her Get Away, some of the Off The Wall tracks), were I do think if other singers would have sung them I doubt they'd be as highly regarded

    This is a very interesting point and one that I totally agree with. It reminds me of the way I always wait to hear Michael's entrance, on certain songs. Elevate them, he does - e.g. "Can You Feel It".

    Invincible bashing incoming, please equip your "He didn't sing nicely" armour.

    No but seriously, Invincible vocals are his most unique and distinct. That doesn't make them bad, I wish people would stop thinking that.

    I love his vocals on every song, it was surprising to see people bash Invincible or even One More Chance. Love them both.
