When the songs get remixed you all complain because they’re messing up the original take, when the songs are left in the original demo state you all complain because the songs sound bare and unpolished.
Most of these songs were never finished, it is unfair to expect otherwise. Just stick to the released albums if you can’t properly set your expectations.
There's a happy medium...finish the songs in a way that's true to MJ's music without remixing them to sound modern..."Michael", for all its flaws, got that right...the production sounds like a finished MJ album

Listened through “Starlight,” and while it is better than the leak, it’s obviously ripped from a mediocre-quality tape, with a LOT of obvious distortion. I’m hoping this is just a faulty rip, because if not, this is absolutely embarrassing and disgraceful.

The synth definitely has more of a "kick" in Starlight.

The snippet of Behind The Mask songs gorgeous and organic, nothing like Greg's version from 84 or 85.

One thing for sure is that John McClain did a great job on the remix. The original is very 80s and very fitting for its time. I think it’s the one I am looking forward to hearing the most on the set.

Welcome to the internet.

And reality, for that matter. Don't be so arrogant in future. You've been really really annoying.
I'm not arrogant i just said what they told me .if I'm arrogant i will not talk at all

Say what you will about Michael as an album, but the remixes on there did a great job of actually sounding like MJ. Xscape, not so much.

someone already sent me the disc 2 tracks.
I can confirm:

Starlight, Got The Hots, Carousel, Sunset Driver - NO DIFFERENT than we already know it.
CGOOTR might be a little different from the mixing.. but they cut the first part of the song...
She's Trouble quality is crystal clear.

As there is no more tracklist guessing needed, as initially discussed in this thread, you are invited to join the follow-up 10-track Thriller 40 discussion here:

New thread was opened solely due to overview/on-topic reasons. See you there! :)

I agree- John McClaine did a wonderful job on the songs he worked on.

Many of the songs sound like I would expect MJ would have released them. - I can't say that for some of the Xscape song. DYKWYCA and CHicago... Does not sound like something MJ would release. And even though I really like STTR and APWNN they are too electric and it doesn't feel like something MJ would release. - So happily we also got the demos - I listen to them often.

what happened?
Stop asking for Disk 2. Members are not allowed to share direct download link to released / copyrighted material here. I have already warned you couple of time.

Hey with the mastering discussion - I haven’t caved and listened to the leaks, is the mastering equivalent to his home demos shake a body, don’t stop, working day n night, billie Jean home demo ect? Is that why there’s complaints

Youtube links are allowed. So when disc 2 leaks do not share download links - only links to youtube. - That's how I understand it.

I am looking so much forward to hearing Who Do You Know - everyone seems to praise that one.

Folks, there is some great discussion on this thread! And we have wonderful time playing the 'guess what's next' game over last month. Though now this thread has lived its purpose and starting to become dumping ground of lot of random stuff. It is getting very difficult to moderate. In addition now I see duplicate posts showing up on this and the new threads. So I am going to close this. I hope all the great discussion about the songs continues on the new thread.
We also have generic T40 thread.
