I expect that if they would write "what here everyone expects" like "it was not Michael singing", that could have bad legal (and marketing) consequences for them... so maybe they're stuck writing weird stuff. But, who knows...
I own the CD from the 2013 Jackson 5 "Complete Album Collection" ... but its mastering is a disaster. I always think that this the album the sound the "most different to others" in the Motown discography... But here the sound is really terrible.
I own the CD from 2001 "Two Classics Albums At...
Not sure if this was already mentioned elsewhere but I just noticed this on michaeljackson.com's FAQ regarding 4K, which I had not seen before :
(It seems to me that they sometimes update this FAQ showing they're actually paying attention to more things it seems.)
Wasn't that The Way You Make Me Feel and not Beat It? Or both?
I never truly understood the "story" in the Scream video... if there is any.
Just wondering right now, when MJ breaks a guitar in Scream, who is he paying tribute to ...
What about a CD release of "When You Wish Upon A Star/Follow the Yellow Brickroad/Ease On Down the Road" medley?
Copyright nightmare? Maybe? And I maybe it would fit better with Off The Wall than Thriller ?
@Antwort : The Man seems like a much too long shot. But "viewed from the perspective of the hoax" as you say and songs, Xscape would make more sense I think... as if he was preparing a future exit (and I heard he was very angry when that one leaked...). Two others that I think could make sense...

(As MJb2 also juste mentionned).
But, only LP and SACD ? And I guess the SACD won't have bonus tracks ?
+ some SACDs releases of Thriller use the 2008 mastering, making them no better than any...
Didn't expect anyone to mention Poly Styrene around here... Also one of my favourite voices... though it's mainly for X-Ray Spex first album.
But already, she doesn't fall in the same category as Bob Dylan for me... I'd put Dylan in the a category once define by Joe Strummer talking about...
From what I understood, BluSpec are just CDs that are supposed to be more resistant.
If you have it, you still compare it with various versions (with good headphones, better) of the album an tells us what mastering it sounds closer too... Just curious about it. (though I'll expect it's 2012 or...
Ah, now it make some more sense.
Side A: Part 1 is 3:43
Side B: Part 2 is 2:46
On 12'' (I have this one but without the cover: https://www.discogs.com/release/882047-Michael-Jackson-You-Cant-Win-Part-12 )
Side A: Part 1 is 7:14 and includes part 2 (and is the same things, remastering...
No, I just checked again, "Part 2" is "Part 1" between timecode 00:03:01 and 00:06:01 (approximately).
So, nothing is extended there, Part 2 is just a repeated part from the full length version.
I can play both together and only get a tiny echo.
Edit: Maybe I first misunderstood your post and...
