A Masterpiece

Some great articles, and great quotes, on Michael!

“He wanted to give the world a gift. He didn’t want the world to depend on ‘Thriller,’ or ‘Bad,’ or ‘Off the Wall,’ said Theron “Neff-U” Feemster, one of the last producers to work with Jackson. “He wanted to give them something new and fresh, and something they could hold and remember forever.”

“I know he stood behind it, so I’m cool with what I did,” said Kravitz. “I was proud to put it out and knew that he’d be all over it, that he’d be really with it.” – Lenny Kravitz.

“It was a tremendous amount of pressure because Michael was one of the great record-makers in the history of music,” said Stewart. “Not only are you trying to make sure that you’re keeping the integrity of the record, but you’re also trying to love up the body of work.” – Tricky

“I would say that this is a masterpiece,” declared Riley. “It goes along with the piece of the puzzle.” – Teddy Riley

Music website NME.com said the track ‘Behind the Mask’ was “an absolute revelation” on which “Jackson howls a solid-gold melody at his fearsome best.”
