iTunes Review

Rather than release a standard new studio album to follow up 1991's Dangerous, The King of Pop issued a double album that began with a 15-song summary of his greatest hits and finished with a second album of new material. As the first music released after Jackson's legal controversies had been made public, HIStory features a number of new songs that sound defensive, paranoid, and like a man in crisis. Even the nervous beats on "They Don't Care About Us" sound as jittery as the original lyrics, which had led to allegations of anti-Semitism and were removed at Jackson's expense. His cover of The Beatles' "Come Together" takes on added promise and bite. Sister Janet joins him for "Scream," where their voices blend as one. R. Kelly's "You Are Not Alone" illustrates Michael's inimitable way with a ballad. Throw in such hits as "Rock with You," "Beat It," and "Billie Jean" on the other half, and HIStory is quite a collection.

Customer Reviews

Underrated... :(

HIStory has Michaels' most underrated songs like Stranger In Moscow and Little Susie.... Am I right????

They Don't Care About Us- why?!?

Itunes, please grow a pair and release the unedited version of this song. There are numerious songs talking about b*****s and hoes, n***a this and n***a that, but i can't download ONE song with the words jew and kike?

Very underrated second disc

The second disc to this set is AMAZING! Disc 2 (which is the original material of this set) is some of MJ's most innovative work, yet due to his lifestyle and the controversy surrounding him and his life, the history album was kind of swept under the rug. Hopefully with his death people can listen to his music now without prejudice, since now they do not have to be fascinated with the man. The first disc is classic MJ, only would have wished that Smooth Criminal was on it, but hey now we can just download the extra song from iTunes. Buy this entire album (it's a great deal here) and then buy Smooth Criminal seperately and you'll have the perfect MJ collection for the casual listener.

Michael Jackson wasn't merely the biggest pop star of his era, shaping the sound and style of the '70s and '80s; he was one of the defining stars of the 20th century, a musician who changed the contours of American culture. A preternaturally gifted singer and dancer, Jackson first rose to stardom in 1969 as the 11-year-old frontman for his family's band, the Jackson 5. As remarkable a run as the Jackson 5 had -- at the dawn of the '70s, each of their first four singles went to number one and they...
