Why you should buy "THIS IS IT."

on 6/26/2011

In an attempt to explain what makes this album worth purchasing, I will break it down to 5 simple words: "It's all about the Sound." While it is true that the first CD of this album is a compilation of MJ's greatest hits, it needs to be pointed out that the majority of these songs have been remastered. In order to discern the difference, I took the original and remastered.

Product Overview

This Is It features the music that inspired Sony Pictures’ forthcoming film Michael Jackson's This Is It. This two-disc album will be available October 27th to coincide with the worldwide release of the motion picture, which arrives in theaters for a limited two-week engagement on October 28th.

Disc 1 features the original album masters of some of Michael’s biggest hits, arranged in the same sequence as they appear in the film. The disc ends with two versions of the never-released song "This Is It." This song is featured in the film’s closing sequence and includes backing vocals by Michael’s brothers, the Jacksons.

Disc 2 offers previously unreleased versions of some of the artist’s classic tracks. This disc also features a moving, never-before-heard spoken-word poem from Michael Jackson entitled "Planet Earth."
