Unbreakable- Strong start, Michael is back with vengeance. The rap by Biggie works well here. It is a pop song with a hip hop edge. 5/5
Hearbreaker- A trendy dance track that works well.The lyrics are great. 4/5
Invincible- See Heartbreaker 4/5
Break Of Dawn- Oh yeah, An excellent R&B ballad as only MJ can do. It's about makin' love 'till the beak of dawn, it's full of passion 5/5
Heaven Can Wait- Beautiful ballad 5/5
You Rock My World- How can anyone resist this one? This song is amazing.5/5
Butterflies- Another smooth R&B song. I can relate to this song. 5/5
Speechless-This is the greatest love song ever recorded! 5/5
2000 Watts- Expiremental(sp?) dance-pop song. Pretty cool. 4/5
You Are My Life- I can never get sick of these wonderful ballads. 5/4
Privacy- Rockin' track about the media invading Mike's privacy, You gotta feel for him here. All celebrities have to put up with a lot of crap from the paparazzi and the press. 5/5
Don't Walk Away- It's nice, I like the guitar in it. not as good as the other ballads. 4/5
Cry- A great peace anthem. R. Kelly is an excellent songwriter.
This album displays more effort than any album from Michael. Maybe there is ONE song that is poor but does that take away from the fact this is great R&B, a genre he hasn't encountered before. He does it great. Does that one song, The Lost Children really have to send him to the worst album of 2001? No.
Give me a break. You don't compare it to other albums. First of all, his best albums are not Thriller and Off The Wall, rather Dangerous, Invincible and History.
Here is a review for the tracklisting:
Unbreakable-I love it! Great beat and great R&B.
Heartbreaker-Hip hop and everything. Though I don't care for Hip Hop or Rap, Michael makes it fine!
Invincible- Great beat, better than Unbreakable and Heartbreaker.
Break of Dawn- Touching and breathtaking. One of his best ballads.
Heaven Can Wait- Second best track on the album. I love the chorus.
Rock My World- Chris tucker gets irritating, but the beat is great. this was a number one!
butterflies- i love the lyrics and chorus. very catchy
speechless- the third best track. i love the chorus. too short though
2000 watts- michael goes deep with a deep bass voice. he should do more like that.
You Are my life- I love the lyrics. dedicated to his kids.
Privacy- he lashes out at the media. just as good as tabloid junkie
Dont walk away- chorus is unbelievalbe, you will cry
Cry- great ballad and very uplifting.Read more ›
UNBREAKABLE: This is a good track overall. The beat and staccatto lyrics are all catchy, as well as Mike's message. I like the little "ha." he does halfway through. The rap piece fits in nicely. My only minus on this track is it's duration, (as with a lot of MJ tracks). 6:30 minutes. But, Mike isn't necessarily known for 3-4 minute radio friendly music. Good song still.
HEARTBREAKER: Another uptempo, staccato/R&B type track like "Unbreakable". Faster though.The stronger of the 2 tracks in my opinion. Good breaks, rhythm. The brief rap solo of this song I don't think was as needed, even though it's not bad either.
INVINCIBLE: The 3rd track sounds similar to "Unbreakable" musically once again. Same tempo and style. Also the shortest of the 3 previous...he he he. I like this song as much as the previous two, and actually can't decide which is the best of the 1st 3 tracks. Another rap solo, again not needed in my opinion. My only problem is the similarity of the 1st 3 songs, one after another. Maybe this one could have been the last track on the album??
BREAK OF DAWN: Tempo change to a soulful love ballad. A strong ballad, one of many ballads on the album. This one stands out more than some of the other ballads though. Even has little birdie sounds in the background.
HEAVEN CAN WAIT: I like the intro music the most. This is love ballad. Mike's voice is very nice on this one. Nice theme for a love song, though maybe not as original as others. This might have been a R&B hit if released as a single.
