If You Want A Reason For Having M.J. In Your Collection...


THEN THIS IS IT!!! Off The Wall, what more can be said about this album that hasn't been said in one form or another by the other reviewers already??? This showed the Michael Jackson that people WANTED to remember as one of the greatest living performers of our time, before years of tabloid garbage and self-mutilation began taking their toll on him. His collaborative efforts with producer Quincy Jones really paid off both commercially and artistically for him. Songs like Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough, Rock With You, and She's Out Of My Life are classic in every sense of the word. The rest of the album still maitains a quality and freshness which I truly believe Michael has never equaled since (though Thriller comes pretty darn close). Not only did Off The Wall contain some of the finest session musicians in R&B at the time, but the amount of energy and enthusiasm that Michael brought to the album is something that to this very day continues to lack in his current work.
There is a reason why many consider Off The Wall to be Michael's finest hour and that is simply because it's one of those rare instances where the music really moves people, whether it be on the dance floor or in everyday life. In my honest opinion, this is the only Michael Jackson album you'll ever need, PERIOD.
p.s. Get the expanded version for improved sound and revelatory bonus tracks.

Charming the Listeners - I Never Get Bored of This CD


Bryan Kelley's refreshing, enlivening and consoling music on this CD is a cathartic "coming of age" journey in my mind. "I Lie In the Water" makes us feel our burdened yet liberating freedom of choice and aloneness in a world of so many possibilities and inevitable wrong turns. "Where Are They Now" also takes us back to our wanderings in and out of each other's lives. I see his collection of songs as a reflection of our determined, sad, angry and joyful desire to be our unique and flawed selves while trying to build and belong to an ideal paradise of happy and healthy lovers, friends, and family. I thank him for a successful work that describes this eternal conflict. (He also makes his live performances seem like a warm and casual circle of friends enjoying good music and grooves together. I saw him and his great band at The Mint in Los Angeles on Pico Boulevard.)

Good, but has some draw backs


I figured I'd give u the track by track, it's easier than overall album.
1) Prelude- Kinda boring in my opinion, but I'm not a prelude person. It gets better
2) When You Wanna Come- Good, but not the best. It has those kinda corny WHAT! lyrics at points, but they're so catchy and the beat just gets it stuck in your head. Ex: "Let me be your Tarzan swinging from a tree, tripple w dot superhero dot me...." just try to not sing it after u heard it a few times!
3) What's It Gonna Be- It's okay, nice beat, but the vocals sound a little slow for it. You'll wanna dance.
4) My Kinda Girl- OH MY GOOD! This is my all time favorite song on the cd! It's duet with justin Timberlake, and surprisingly it works! Their voices are perfect together! It starts off with a little harmonizing and it continues through it. And it's upbeat, really surprising because most of his best are ballads! This song has great vocals, and outstanding lyrics, this album is worth getting just for that song. I just can resist typing the lyrics now "When you talk; I hang on every word you say. When you move; your like the breeze on a summer day. When you smile; the sky turns from gray to blue. That's what you do." and the chorus! "And you're the kinda girl i think of, and you'rr the kinda girl I dream about. My heart is telling me i need you in my world. 'Cause you're my kinda lady, you're my kinda girl." I love it!
5) Love Of My Life- You've all heard it, I'm not even going to bother.
6) Whatever You Want- Another catchy song. This one is actually about letting the girl take control 'cause "It's not about me, it's whatever you like" Go Brian!
7) Everything- Really sweet ballad. Brian's the best at these! Gotta love it.
8) Get Over You- Best ballad on the cd! My second favorite! It's so sweet! As you can tell, it's about a break-up! Really sweet lyrics. I love when he sings "My pride always get's in the way... I lied. I should've begged you to stay. It may take till forever is through, to get over you" Listen to it, you'll see what I mean!
9) Superhero- Title song, but one of the album's worst. Cool beat, but it gets old fast and a lot of the lyrics are bad. I wouldn't recomend it.
10) Still- Another ballad, they're what he does best! You can't blame the boy for doing so many, they're the best! Same sweet lyrics, you just wanna cuddle with someone.
11) Don't Know Where To Start- this one's cool. Nice beat, okay lyrics, cool vocals, not the best, but far from the worst. Like I said, his better ones tend to be ballads.
12) Biggest Part Of Me- This song is sooooo sweet! My second favorite ballad! "I love yous, I need yous, are only words that people say. They're just words, when they're hand in hand, with the games that people play" too true! It kinda sounds like it'll be sad, but then it gets into the chorus with "But if I never see the top of a mountain, if i never step one foot in the sea. I promise you I'll love you forever, You'll always be the biggest part of me." This song better be playing at prom! it's perfect for slow dancing and cuddling with someone you love. It's song like this that make the album so good.
13) When Will I See You Again- Cool song with Fred Hammond. It's the big religious song of this album. If you're not big on those skip it, but it's really nice. I like the lyrics. Not enough room to type them, so if you want'em you'll just have to listen to the song!
14) For You- Good ballad, about everything being worth it if they get through to one person. You'll like it, it's sweet. Brian's ballads rock.
15) Groovin' Tonight- Bonus track, and the only one not written by him if I'm not mistaken. It's done with the St Lunatics, which was another thing I didn't expect to see. Brian does the chorus. It's cool, different feel from most of the album. It's something for the new generation who haven't discovered him!
All in all a good album, get it. Hurry!
