Product Description

Product Description

Import only 180 gram audiophile vinyl pressing. 2009.

Amazon.ca

Given the pace of Michael Jackson's post-Thriller release schedule, it's striking that Off the Wall appeared between two albums with his brothers, Destiny (1978) and Triumph (1980), on which the twentysomething phenomenon was also fully engaged. Aided by richly detailed but not overdone production, Off the Wall redefined how much Michael might do.

Tracks like "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough," "Rock with You," the title cut (all Top 10 singles), and "Burn this Disco Out" not only consolidated his dance-floor power, but showed just how soulful and varied his vocals could get on uptempo material. Artistic role models like James Brown and Jackie Wilson echo through the mixes, but these were Jackson's leaps forward. The addition of pure pop confection--Paul McCartney's "Girlfriend," Stevie Wonder's "I Can't Help It"--further fleshed out the star's young-adult persona and helped make Off the Wall among the most fondly remembered of all his solo work. This special edition features two magic home demos and entertaining, insightful interviews of producer Quincy Jones and "Rock with You" composer Rod Temperton. --Rickey Wright --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

the songs on this album, together with "thriller" hit me right there, everytime i hear "don't stop" or "rock with you" & the title track..... this was michael at his absolute peak, basically, he WAS dance music in the '80s......
totally brilliant.

Off The Wall is very different from the next albums Jackson would release, it has more of that 1970's disco/funk/pop song sound to it (that sound about right), it sound very different from the 80's pop sound Michael became famous for. Here Michael was just a largely enthusiastic 21 year old ready to set the world on fire, and he did. People tend to forget that Off The Wall was considered a success; it went on to sell over quite a few million copies. Thriller's is Jackson' s best known work and rightfully so but Off The Wall is a very enjoyable and different album, to some MJ's first mature solo effort (his earlier solo records were released when he was much younger) is his best one (in fact producer Quincy Jones is very clear that OTW is his favorite work completed with Michael). This was Michael's first big break from the Jackson 5/Jacksons, he really set himself apart with Off The Wall, and Michael was in a league beyond his brother's in terms of music. Jackson put out some great music with his brothers and was always the main focus of the Jackson 5; it was only a matter of time before he became a star on his own.

I really do like the songs on OTW. The title track is insanely catchy and I love the disco sound, the song just grabs you and never lets you go. Rock With You is a slower paced song and to me is probably the most memorable one due to it's fantastic video. Don't Stop `Till You Get Enough shows incredible energy and I feel it's one the highlights of MJ's career. The funky, high-bass Get On The Floor is an excellent groovy song. The Paul McCartney written Girlfriend is obviously the weakest song here, I was never a big fan of this one, it may sound sad but to me it's very much filler material and is the weakest song here.

Off the Wall is a great album for fans of r&b/disco and jazz music, it definitely is an amazing start for michael, but he really blossomed with Thriller, Bad and Dangerous when he started having more creative control over his music. My favourite songs on here are the classics Don't Stop Till You Get Enough and Rock With You, which I still hear a lot on the radio or in clubs, and I also love the jazzy I Can't Help It, the track Get On the Floor, the funky disco number Burn This Disco Out and the others. A true r&b classic that set stone for modern r&b music. Everyone such as justin timberlake,usher, britney spears, musiq soulchild, janet jackson, neptunes,beyonce, jill scott, mary j blige, brandy, glenn lewis have turned to Off the Wall for musical inspiration and it shows. Buy it today to hear the man behind the music from this album that would become a classic 25 years later. And the best part is that he is extremely talented and original and I'm sure all the artists I named would agree.

Back in the day this record was all over the clubs. A SOUL CLASSIC and Michael's best dance record. So why does EPIC have to gum it up with commentaries? Put that kind of stuff on a separate disc if it must be included. This kind of stuff is all too prevalent in remastered reissues. Record companies should just LEAVE IT ALONE. Put out the reissues the way they were intended. I just wanna hear the music, man.

the album was Michael coming out party the album was his chance to put the music out that he wanted us to hear it included a lot of disco music this showed Michael's ability to keep up with the times it also showed everyone who doubted him to keep up his fame as a artist despite his growth one of with classics like "Don't stop till you get enough " Michael showed why he would later on be known as the king of pop

This is a great album. You'll love every song on this album! It is truly one of the best albums ever! Michael sounds as good as he ever has. His singing and dancing is fabulous! His songwriting ablities are amazing. He wrote Don't Stop Till You Get Enough, Workin Day and Night, and Get on the Floor. These songs are all classics! Now, Michael first off, did an amazing job with this album. But, don't forget that Rod Temperton wrote Rock with You, Off the Wall, and Burn this Disco Out. Which are also great MJ songs. Temperton also wrote Baby Be Mine, Thriller, and Lady in My Life for the album Thriller. So, Off the Wall and Thriller, MJ wrote Seven of the 19 songs (Billie Jean, Beat It, Wanna Be Startin Somethin, Girl is Mine, Get on the Floor, Don't Stop till You Get Enough, and Workin Day and Night which are all genious songs) Temperton wrote: Thriller, Baby Be Mine, Rock with You, Lady in my Life, Off the Wall, and Burn this Disco Out. I'm not trying to take away from MJ's genius work, which truly is genius, but to say that you should give Rod Temperton some love. So, if you reall love Off the Wall, then I suggest that you also check into the band Heatwave which Rod Temperton played for and wrote nearly all of the songs for. So, if you dig MJ you'll also dig Heatwave just like I did.
