Gonetoosoon;3426936 said:These two songs are very underrated from the Invincible album and were Michael's attempt to experiment with a new modern sound with an industrial pop edge. Unbreakable undoubtedly was his best effort, and is one of the strongest, if not the strongest track on Invincible. But the other two tracks are rarely talked about.
Which of these lesser discussed tracks is better?
Invincible or Heartbreaker?
Actually, Michael Jackson wanted a sound similar to that of the ‘Superthug’ song by the American rapper N.O.R.E., which was produced by The Neptunes and it came out in 1998.
Michael Jackson was literally in love with the sound of the ‘Superthug’ song.
He played that song to Rodney Jerkins and to his team (Jerkins III, LaShawn Daniels, etc), and he asked from them to create a similar sound (for his upcoming album).
As for your question, the ‘Invincible’ song is not a good song overall, and that is why most fans took an instant dislike to it when they first heard it.
It is boring, repetitive, unexciting, uninspired and additionally it has very weak Michael Jackson’s vocals on it.
Comparatively, ‘Heartbreaker’ is a better song, but it also has its issues (for example, towards its end includes some very unnecessary, cheap sounds as if they were taken from an arcade video game).
