    Wow great ear mate. I've never noticed that before.
    If I remember rightly in his book Moonwalk MJ didn't sound too satisfied with certain songs on Triumph. If I can remember off the top of my head, it was something like, it didn't have the richness of Quincy's sound

    Triumph was definitely sped up. That's one reason why that additional verse from Wondering Who was left out. They could only fit so much onto an album.

    There's got to be one or two nearly finished songs in the vault for this album that just didn't fit.

    The vocal at 3:48 of Your Ways, I always heard that and thought it was intentional. It always sounded like "Okay, girl" to me.

    It was engineer Tom Perry who mixed it. He worked on other albums like The Emotions and EWF. It wasn't like he had no experience. He also worked on some demos for MJ and Janet around this time.

    There was no Bruce Swedien to mix this. He was probably working on the Brothers Johnson album and George Benson.
