    So, not sure what the kids say, but accord to some comment on this video, 3 weeks ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-75BloRDu0s

    Taj Jackson talked about the Cascio Tracks fiasco recently on the MJCast and said the excuse Eddie Cascio gave for obviously sampled legit MJ vocals, like what you hear at 4:04 on this song, was Michael would bring with him samples of his pre-recorded adlibs, etc. to use on new songs if he wanted to. That's one of the most ridiculous and laughable excuses/lies he could've told. When Michael was alive, he had no need to reuse his adlibs or vocals from previous recordings. He would do new ones. It blows my mind that anyone behind the scenes fell for this deception and, not on 1 but on 12 songs!
    Not sure if this is new info.

    Someone was asking if Michael had any knowledge of the so-called "Cascio Tracks." In my opinion, he very well may have. There was word that Michael had heard "Let Me Let Go" by Jason Malachi and thought it was eerily impressive how it was making the rounds on the internet as a "legitimate" "new" Michael Jackson song. There was word that Michael thought it would be a fun experiment to use Malachi to test the water on new tracks or as a test-vocalist for demoing material he did not have time to record personally, so that he could "get an idea" as to what it would sound like with his vocals on it. Similarly to how R. Kelly would demo out tracks for him.

    Like I say - there was word, so none of this is confirmed. But it is, indeed, what I have heard.

    Pretty sure this is just an old rumor started by either Jason himself (as he was active on forums back then) or his team/fanbase

    This thread is legendary, I wonder how many posts I have here 10 years ago

    Edit: 500 posts

    I remember posting in this thread so much when it was happening.. it was truly heartbreaking. MJ had nothing to do with these weak ass songs & justice needs to happen!

    One of the worst things about it was all the fans who blamed fans like me that we were destroying MJ's legacy. LOL, glad they are all gone

    Speaking as someone who was initially in the "real" camp, there was a lot of denial in fans around that time, and shock. It was and is such a shocking, disrespectful and near inconceivable thing, you know what I mean? It was not until some of the real genius audio forensics started taking place around here that it just became truly undeniable.

    The smoking gun for me was the fact that you can take any Michael Jackson song and find another where he sings the same note in the same way. However, with the Cascio tracks, there's no companion to be found for any notes he sang - only with Jason Malachi (they're nearly identical), but not with Michael Jackson.

    i wanted to believe it's MJ on Monster / BN, but once i heard all the Cascio tracks, it was too obvious it was all sung by someone else.

    I wonder how and why they approached Jason doing those songs. i mean Cascios had no connection to him before? how did they find this clown?

    For me it was the vibrato. But I must say before I read all the stuff about it, including this analysis : http://www.damienshields.com/site/wp...Papcun-PhD.pdf I just didn't pay attention.
    Spotting the flaws here actually trained my ears at listening more closely to singers.

    At the same time, I had a very long time not listening to MJ a lot, I have kind of skipped Invincible and onwards, it was unclear for me if his voice could have changed that way. Some singers voice deteriorate at that age... But then I also heard "All in your name" which made me realise that MJs voice could still be even more impressive that anything heard on albums.

    Now, re-listening to the Cascio tracks, it's so obvious that MJ is nowhere in those... But it took me some time to be sure.

    Not too sure if he can be called a clown... Not while we don't have the full story of how he and these tracks were recorded and ended on the album. His voice seemed to do the job for many people...

    But yeah ... how did he end up on the album...

    It may already have been said, but Cascio tracks, while being totally intentional, remind me of Britney Spears/Myah Marie thing. Myah Marie was her background singer for some time, and, in 2013, while working on a new album (Britney Jean), a sound engineer allegedly deleted Britney's vocals, and so they had to call back Myah Marie to fill the gaps. As a results, Britney Spears barely has 3-4 songs completely sung by her on this album, the other songs on the album are, at least, "completed by Myah Marie" and there's some songs where Britney Spears is nowhere to be heard.
