Ok, here's what doubters don't seem to realize in their anger. I LIKE Monster, Breaking News and, to a lesser extent, KYHU. What you see as three songs that were a trojan horse of hatred and scandal, I see as three MJ songs I'm glad we have, even though they're part MJ, part post-production work. And I'm not alone in enjoying those three songs.
AND I know that if those three songs had NOT been released, for the precise reasons we now claim they shouldn't have been (incomplete, lame vocals, in need of too much work, etc.), fans would be clamouring for them to be released, saying that they didn't care about all of those things.
Eddie did the right thing in letting us hear those songs : they're what MJ sang in 2007, until proof to the contrary, proof which could easily be obtainable if the Cascios/Estate were sued.
dude..those songs ?suck. and i've never said that about an MJ song in my life. and that has nothing to do with the controversy. They're difficult, hard on the stomach, hard to digest..heavy...complicated..overproduced..overwritten..sink to the bottom of my soul's feet..i can't listen to them even once, let alone, more than once. Michael's songs are always light..airy...in your face, dry, memorable..hooky, magical..timeless...running around in my head, and me liking them there, as opposed to running around in my head, and me not liking them in there,(which has happened to me, on some songs in history)...these songs don't even run around in my head with me not liking them.
to me, listening to a song isn't about me having to think about it..or give an 'open mind' to it, or 'study' it, or even 'critique' it. i use my hard earned money to buy music to escape. that's it. it's supposed to be fun. not work. it's supposed to be my vacation. it's supposed to carry me. i'm not supposed to carry it. Michael does the former, those 'songs' do the latter, in my previous sentence. and they're too heavy for me to carry.
and how is MJ doing something for the 'first time', the way you stated? that's a red flag, right there.
