    If you ask me, nothing much happens in both songs. Nothing much happens in Stranger in Moscow as well
    Lmao, Lady in My Life is sexy and sensual as hell! Pure r&b slow jam goodness. And MJs vocal is amazing honestly. No comparison with Don't Walk Away! Stranger In Moscow is more low key obvs but it's haunting, deep and beautiful. (Unlike Don't Walk Away lol) #Opinions

    What’s with the Don’t Walk Away hate? I think it’s a gorgeous song that features with a great vocal delivery. You can just feel the emotion, the pain in his voice. If there is any filler song on Invincible, it’s the title track.

    Here's an unpopular opinion. I think Butterflies is one of the worst songs on Invincible

    Butterflies just takes the most time to grow on you. It's a strange song. No flow, broken rhythm, unusual vocals (even for Michael's standards) and you can't really sing it under the shower.
    This one really takes a lot from the listener. Took me around 2 months of repeated listening (every 2 days in average) to start appreciating it.
    But that's just the thing with Invincible. Once you familiarise yourself enough with the songs, and are finally able to sing them on your own, you start to slowly understand the genius behind this album.

    That is why I don't take people seriously when they say they don't like Invincible. Because I am 100% that the only thing seperating them from changing their opinion is more time with the album.

    Michael Jackson sounds really bored and tired from start to finish while singing ‘Don’t Walk Away’, and also this song is the main culprit that makes the album’s second half feel like dragging on so much.

    But there is also another issue with that song.

    If you listen at 1:36-1:38, you realize that the word ‘understand’ is in a mysterious way cut off in two parts and thus that word sounds here very unnatural and weird.

    About ‘Butterflies’, it would have worked better as a song (on the ‘Invincible’ album) if Michael Jackson sang it together as a duet with the English singer Marsha Ambrosius.

    Honestly, some of you need to pick issue with everything. I don’t see anything wrong with the way he sings the word ‘understand.’ You are being a bit too meticulous.

    I don't hate it, there's nothing to hate about it, it's just a mediocre song for me I even tend to forget about. It's a good thing you enjoy it though.

    And I agree with Silky that Invincible needs time and multiple listens to grow on you, it really does. I appreciate it so much more than I did at the time of its release, and it certainly broadened my "range".

    Having said that, I think the circumstances really did influence the producing of the album and the selection of songs, and not always for the better (there's an overall "rushed" feeling about it). Don't get me wrong, MJ still did great despite the pressure, but this album always remains with unrealised possibilities (also in terms of MVs, performances, different takes or mixes). Nothing of this is really MJ's fault, but it's just sad, and I think it prevents me from enjoying the album as it is (I gladly listen to the songs individually though).

    This is the reason I did this project in the first place. Aside from lack of promo (singles, performances, videos etc) Invincible gets overlooked because of certain songs in my opinion that shouldn't be on there. I think it has a higher percentage of "meh" songs and ballads than is usual for a Michael Jackson album. And sadly I think this clouds the perception of the whole thing. Whether that was down to MJs state of mind at the time, too many influences or people's input (loads of writers and background vocalists for example), insecurity, bad management or Sonys pressure and taking creative control from Michael, I'm not sure. But the fact that we have Don't Walk Away or Cry in place of We've Had Enough or Blue Gangsta proves to me that talent is not the issue. And actually, as I've said, I love 11 out of 16 songs, they're gems. To me that's a good/great album, and it has a sentimental place in my heart as the first new MJ album I was old enough to buy myself at age 11. (I'm 29) I wore that CD out for years thereafter. I actually play Invincible more than Thriller (my least fave MJ album, unpopular opinion I know)

    11 great tracks IMO are let down by 5 duds. Which is why I removed and replaced with 4 I believe would turn this album from great to amazing. Not as a disrespect to Michael but more because of the circumstances surrounding the making of the album.

    All started with refreshing the artwork though, that was the biggest job!
