5.0 out of 5 stars All the hits June 3 2009
By Matt Hughes TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
I never really appreciated MJ in the past, I've always been into the hard rock/metal but I now realize how great he is and was with the Jackson 5, holy crap he could sing back then! This 2 disk cd has all his great feel good hits and a few others. If you can't afford all his albums, this disk has a good chunk of awesome MJ and Jackson 5 music.

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic compelation! Aug. 11 2009
Format:Audio CD
I, along with many, have been revisiting my love of Michael Jackson's music since his death, and recently purchased this CD. I have a few other "essentials" albums for other artists, and none of them dissappoint. It is a great compelation of Michael's work throughout his career (or life, since they are one in the same), including some Jackson 5 and The Jackson's stuff as well as bits from all of his solo albums. All the hits are there, and many other favorites! I certainly recomend the Essentials of Michael Jackson to anyone looking for a collection of his timeless treasures.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good CD, but there is a better one! July 27 2009
By J. Dean
Format:Audio CD
This CD is the U.S. version of "The Essential Michael Jackson" and it has a lot of good songs on it. However it is missing "Earth Song" and "They Don't Really Care About Us". Despite the fact that the International version of the CD is $10 more I feel that it is a better purchase as it has the above mentioned songs.

Although I feel that the International version of the CD is better I still give the US version four out of five stars becase it has so many good songs and if you don't care for the two above mentioned songs then the US version would probably be a better purchase for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars All the hits AND a great price! Nov. 4 2010
Format:Audio CD
Replaced all my Michael Jackson albums and The Jacksons album with this CD. Did not own any Jackson Five albums but now have some of their hits as well thanks to this fantastic collection. Much more space in my entertainment unit now! Could not believe that one CD would include every song that I have ever liked...but it did, plus more! My personal favorites are "Ben" from the early years and "Will You Be There" from the later years, and this CD has both. Although I have always been a fan, like the previous reviewer, I now have a new appreciation for his voice (both boy and man) and his talent. I am also beginning to enjoy songs I never cared for in the past, such as "Dangerous". Like anyone else, I played the CD a lot when first purchased and then it went into storage for a while. I was just recently given a BOSE music system as a gift and started to play the CD again on the BOSE. Wow...a whole new experience...it was like listening to it for the first time! (And no, I am not connected in any way with the BOSE company...just like it very much.) So now I am enjoying this incredible talent once again. I would highly recommend this collection to all Michael Jackson and Jackson Five fans. It's also a great way to introduce someone who is not yet a fan to the wonder that was Michael Jackson. Rest In Peace, Michael and thanks for the memories.

By Tommy Skylar TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
It's no secret that Michael Jackson was incredibly talented and gifted musician, the fact that he also had a passion for his art must have helped. This two discs collection covering the man's entire career from the time he was a little kid up to his later years as one of the most famous person on this planet. It serves as an example of how great his music was and how it's still amazing today. Few artists have had the impact that MJ had on the music industry, Michael revolutionized it, and in the 1980's Michael was fashion. MJ's certainly has an interesting musical career and The Essential Michael Jackson is all the proof you need, we could go into how Thriller is the best selling album of all time, or how History is the best selling double disc album of all time, or how Blood On The Dance Floor is the best selling remix album... However the point here is not to demonstrate Michael's numerous accomplishments in the music industry, it's how good his music was.

The first 8 songs of this greatest hits album are from Michael's time in the Jackson 5/ Jacksons. Then we get 4 songs from Off The Wall (1979), 7 songs from Thriller (1982), 8 from Bad (1987), 7 from Dangerous (1992) and 1 from both History (1995) and Invincible (2001). All the hits you would expect are here: Don't Stop Till You Get Enough, Billie Jean, Thriller, Bad and much more. There isn't much to say about the songs included, they're all great in their own way and deserving to be on this "essential" collection. Besides the "Ultimate Collection" boxed set, this compilation is by far the most comprehensive look at Michael's career.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really ultimate!!! Feb. 15 2006
By Sonic
Format:Audio CD
Why there had to be another Michael Jackson Best of-album with a similar tracklist as "History", "Greatest Hits", "Number Ones" and "The Ultimate Collection" remains an open question. But in contrast to the Box Set this album is a lot less expensive. So if you like "The Jackson 5", "The Jacksons" and Michael as a solo artist this is the ideal collection of songs.
The first CD starts off peppy with "I want you back", "ABC" and "The love you save" which are without a doubt the three best songs of the "Jackson 5" and will surely put you in a good mood.
"Got to be there" and "Ben" are two timeless ballads which show young Michael's enormous volume. After that the album is taken to another level by a row of sensational dancefloor tracks like "Shake Your Body" and Michael's first ultimate worldwide hit "Don't stop 'til you get enough", which will truly get every party going. Nevertheless the album even manages to beat this with the never-to-be-beaten baseline of "Billie Jean" and the immensely powerful "Beat It".
The second CD presents seven hits from "Bad" including the fantastic "Man in the Mirror" and the catchy "Smooth Criminal".
This is followed by Michael's biggest hit of the 90s "Black or White" and further great songs from the "Dangerous"-album. Among them classics like the tremendously groovy "Who is it" and the bombast-ballade "Will you be there".
Fortunately the album also includes the two undoubtedly best songs from the "History"-album.
