Why aren't we celebrating, hyping and discussing the Dangerous 30 release?

LOL! Pathetic as always

Because it’s only the album without any bonuses or concert stuff… it’s just a re-release of the album.. nothing more

It's just a re-release of the album, with a red vinyl. You guys are pathetic for supporting it. We could support the album celebration, without the re-release. Typical lousy estate, and yall are the ones hyping it up, AS ALWAYS. (I knew we weren't getting any surprises, I was just pointing out what they did) And of course, there will be some 🤪 fans, to buy this crazy stuff (and probably some are in this community themselves).

Yeah, this time there's no accompanying merchandise. *sniffs deeply*

I'm not sure how many more times I can buy the Dangerous album. I probably have like 8 copies of it. It has been released twice on vinyl in the last 6 years and now it will have a third vinyl. I wish there was something new.

It’s a bummer for sure, but there was never an official announcement for D30, or even any credible rumors, so it’s not like I had any expectations for it. Plus, I’m honestly bored of these corny anniversary reissues. Just do what McCartney’s been doing and choose an album to celebrate every now and again. (Just… not Thriller. Please. I’m not buying Thriller again.)

Actually Branca himself said in 2016 that they didn't release Dangerous 25 because they really want to focus on Dangerous 30th... there we are.
Same as they said in 2017 they want to release Ghosts and Thriller 3D in 2018... there we were..

It would not be a good idea to release an anniversary edition of the 'HIStory' album, after the airing of the 'Leaving Neverland' documentary.

The reason is that such a 'HIStory' anniversary album release would act as a reminder for those allegations against him.

The 'Invincible' album seems to have potential for a future anniversary release because of its bonus outtakes.

The 'Invincible' era was an era that its unheard outtakes were generally better than the songs that made that album, so such a release would attract not only old fans but also it would create new fans.

how do you know that the outtakes are better? have you heard the ones which aren't released yet?

I’m pretty sure he said “maybe” they’d do D30. That’s on him for even bringing it up, but it’s far from a promise.

This is based on certain accounts from people who worked on and listened to these outtakes.

Like, Bruce Swedien who said that many better, complete songs did not make the 'Invincible' album simply because they did not fit the album's theme and cohesion.

Or, Rodney Jerkins who also stated that they left out better, complete songs than the ones that they eventually included on that album.

It has also been said that Michael Jackson (due to his dissatisfaction and anger with Sony Music at the time) decided not to include some of these better, complete songs on that album, but to keep them for himself so as to release them later on a different record label.

Most of these unreleased outtakes (from that era) apparently do exist.

No.. he said what i said.

"we want to focus on D30".
Exact quote from TIFF 2017, when asked about a project celebrating Dangerous: “Well, it might not be Dangerous 25 at this point, it might be Dangerous 30. But yeah, we definitely wanna get to that.” Obviously it’s a bummer, but let’s not pretend they said something they didn’t say.

New content would be great, but let's get MJ's content represented to this new generation of music listeners in the best quality possible. REMASTER ALL OF HIS SHORT FILMS, PUT THRILLER & GHOSTS IN THEATERS, PUT CAPTAIN EO ON DISNEY+

And now compare this with Bad 25... even a standalone VHS copy DVD of a new dangerous concert would be better than just a re-release of the vinyl.. and where the heck is the chalk?
LOL. Well, to be fair, the chalk goes with the "Off the Wall" related projects, not Dangerous. :unsure::giggle::sneaky:

Speaking for myself, I'm not interested in a Dangerous vinyl, because I have nothing to play vinyls on; BUT vinyls have experienced a huge resurgence in recent years. There is probably also a large chunk of casual fans and new fans who don't have the Dangerous album and are interested in collecting something cool, like a red vinyl, if they have a record player. Vinyls undoubtedly have a better sound than CDs. The glow-in-the-dark vinyl for Scream (Halloween 2017) pushed quite good numbers, as I recall.

But wait, there's more! If you buy it from Walmart, you get it in SILVER oooo

Link for proof
Link to early Black Friday ad that shows the album will be on sale for less on November 10th

Sigh... why can't this album ever get the love and respect it deserves?

The important matter is which master they use - I will not buy before I know if the sound quality is superb.

I actually do not have Dangerous on LP - so I could consider buying this if the audio quality is great.
Also I have a friend who is very exited for LP's. - Everything has to be on vinyl for him, so I could also buy one for him, but again - only if the mastering/audio quality is great.

Dangerous has always been stiffed on special releases - even 2001's SE sucked.

Exactly, Dangerous doesn't get that much love in special releases. It's better to not release nothing then this. This made no sense. How many times could we buy Dangerous? The vinyl is just colored. I bet some fans would buy this. I'm pretty sure a big chunk of Michael's fanbase doesn't have vinyl, and just streams the music. Or listen to it on YouTube. This was really unnecessary.
