Just sitting thinking about how they've somehow gave us a version of Starlight that sounds worse than the leak, which also sounds shit.
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 albumWhen 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.
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.
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.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.
OMG, can I PLEASE hear Who Do You Know 😭😭 The snippet is HEAVENsomeone 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.
I agree- John McClaine did a wonderful job on the songs he worked on.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
