I'm sure you have recently heard the devastating news about Michael Jackson, who sadly passed on Thursday 25th June 2009 at the age of 50. I have decided to write this review to tell you about my opinions on the king of pop himself and his music.
I have always loved Michael Jackson's music so I decided to pick up a copy of Number Ones quite a while ago, I thought it was brilliant as all of Michael's songs are.
The album includes production from classic producers such as Quincy Jones, Teddy Riley, R. Kelly, Dr. Freeze, Michael himself and many others.
Timeless classics on the album include Don't Stop Til You Get Enough, Billie Jean, Beat It, Thriller, Bad, Smooth Criminal, Dirty Diana, Black or White, You Are Not Alone and Earth Song, I love every song on the album, cannot think of one I didn't like to be honest.
And of course, Michael's music still sounds as brilliant today as it did yesterday, so his music will live on for generations to come.
Michael Jackson lived to see good times and also bad times, as we all do in life, and this compilation album certainly proves that with its vast selection of touching ballads and lively, happy songs. There is something on here for everyone, no matter which genre of music is your favourite.
This album not only shows how popular, loved and historic Michael Jackson has become, but also manages to present some of the best music ever created all on one CD for you to enjoy time after time.
So join me, as we give a toast to the king of pop, one of the greatest musicians that ever lived, and a truly wonderful man.
Rest In Piece to Michael Jackson (29th August 1958 - 25th June 2009), you may be gone but you will never be forgotten...
