Product Description

Product Description

Import only 180 gram audiophile vinyl pressing. 2009.

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 an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

There is nothing but praise for this album. So happy that it is part of my collection. I can only keep repeating myself and being truly honest Michael was ahead of his time with his creativity and song writing. It was a shame that he won only one Grammy from that album.

A really good album - energetic, melodic, cheerful and innovative at the time. Really interesting predecessor to Thriller. Highly recommended to Michael Jackson fans and to others who like cheerful music with dance rhythms. Two thumbs most definitely up!

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.

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.

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.

Michael Jackson's first solo album as an adult is one of his greatest works of art. This album is not only just songs, it is a collection of works of art and great masterpieces.

Rock with you:9.5/10 Wow! This is an amazing slowish song that I love and it makes me feel great
Workin' day and night:8/10 Really nice song, catchy and makes you want to dance
Get on the floor:9/10 Wow! This song is great for dancing and it makes me feel wonderfull each time I hear it
Off the Wall:9/10 Greart title song, gets you on your feet, and leaves you wanting more
Girlfriend:7/10 Fine ong, but it gets a little boring, plus the tune can be a little uncomfortable
She's out of my life:10/10 What can I say? made me cry, made me weep, extraordinary
I can't help it:7/10 Not bad, and catchy, but you can only listen to it once
The falling in love:7.5/10 Not bad, but a little boring, and the lyrics are a little contrtadicting
Burn this disco out:8.5/10 Great song, and cachy.
Plus, the interviews and demos are not to be missed
This is a wonderful album I advise everyone to buy. Fantastic, as always is with Michael Jackson
