4.0 out of 5 stars A Superb Collection From The No.1 King Of Pop! Jan. 14 2004
Format:Audio CD
As the first few weeks of 2004 are upon us, and I'm sure Michael Jackson will be hoping that this year will bring him better luck than 2003 did. Despite dominating the tabloids with his appearance, the baby-dangling incident and THAT Martin Bashir interview, Michael Jackson still remains the King of Pop. There's some people who are famous. There are some people who are superstars. There are some people who are icons - and then there's Michael Jackson. Arguably the most famous entertainer alive, Jackson's 30 years reign on the charts is unchallenged.
So that's precisely why Michael's latest release, "Number Ones," is essential for all fans of brilliant music. Since the early 1980's Jackson has captivated the world with his music. We've had fun dancing to his music and cried to his emotional ballads, and that's why he's the greatest male performer ever. His talent is undeniable, and even though he's gone a bit off the rails in recent years, the world and his die-hard fans have never forgotten the music which is what matters the most.
First off, Number Ones is a title that tricks the buyer somewhat. There are eighteen songs on this album, and Jackson has had no where near eighteen US No.1 hits. He's had a total of 13 US No.1 singles, and his last was in 1995. Michael has had 7 UK No.1 hit singles, and his last was in 1997. His first UK No.1 hit was in May 1981 with "One Day In Your Life," which isn't included on here strangely enough. Michael's sixth US No.1 "Say Say Say" is also not included, and I have the UK version which includes "Human Nature" instead of "Man In The Mirror." Silly different regions and record companies! What is the point? Why not just have a complete tracklisting?! Also, "Ben," Michael's first ever US No.1, is included on the US version, but not on the UK version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Whatever Else, He's The KING OF POP!!! Dec 6 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is the definitive collection of #1 hits by The King Of Pop. Michael Jackson's reign as Tabloid Favorite only drew more attention to his work as singer, song writer, dancer, actor, all-around-super-talent. While the world is richer for the multitude of brilliant music, it is sad that Michael himself seems unable to truly enjoy his own giftedness; instead walking on the brink of insanity, plagued by unknown demons.
Easily ranking with the now famous Beatles ONE and the Elvis ONE & TWO, as well as Mariah's set of #1's, Michael Jackson will never be unthroned as the ONE and ONLY King of Pop! Come what may, we will always have the music.*****

3.0 out of 5 stars HIStory Repeats Itself. Nov. 22 2003
Format:Audio CD
Michael Jackson's sanity is clearly a matter of debate, but only a fool would deny his talent and chart supremacy since leaving Motown. "Number Ones" is yet another collection featuring the usual lineup of his classic hits: "Billie Jean," "Don't Stop Til You Get Enough," "Beat It," "Rock With You," and so on. The tracklisting is presented in chronological order, starting with material from "Off the Wall," right up to the previously unreleased R. Kelly ballad "One More Chance" and a somewhat unnecessary live performance of "Ben." There isn't much for me to comment about the hits themselves, except to say that unless you've been living in a 25 year coma, you're already familiar with 90% of this album. But the problems with "Number Ones" are twofold: first, the tracklisting overlaps Jackson's previous hits album "HIStory." Do we really need yet another recycling of songs millions of us already have? Also, not all of the tracks on "Number Ones" topped the chart, such as the excellent "Smooth Criminal" and "Break of Dawn," a cut off 2001's "Invincible" that was never even released as a single. Is "Number Ones" a competent survey of Jackson's biggest hits? Yes, it is. But is it a necessary purchase? Not if you already own "HIStory." While listeners green to Jackson's work should pick this up, "Number Ones" brings almost nothing new to the table for those who already own his prior albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Exclusively Number Ones Nov. 21 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
In the U.S., Michael Jackson had 13 post-Motown (solo era) number one hits. They were: Don't Stop Til You Get Enough, Rock With Me, Billie Jean, Beat It, Say Say Say, We Are the World, I Just Can't Stop Loving You, Bad, The Way You Make Me Feel, Man in the Mirror, Dirty Diana, Black or White, and You Are Not Alone. Factoring in the U.K. chart, we can add Earth Song and Blood on the Dance Floor. But songs like Say Say Say, We Are the World and Blood on the Dance Floor are missing. Other songs, like Smooth Criminal and You Rock My World, weren't number one hits on either chart. Which chart was Sony using?

1.0 out of 5 stars Been There, Done That Nov. 21 2003
Format:Audio CD
I was hoping this album would have some "other" greatest hits by Jackson. But looking at the playlist, most of these are available on his HIStory album that came out years ago, and the others are not particularly famous "hits".
C'mon, Michael, this is stupid. Why should we buy something that's basically an inferior clone of HIStory? At least both discs in HIStory have music on them. The 2nd CD in this new set is just videos of the songs on the 1st disc.
