Off the Wall made music history. Not only was it the release that signaled the arrival of Michael Jackson as a major talent outside the Jackson Five, it was the first record by a solo artist to contain four Top 10 hits. "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough," "Rock with You," "Off the Wall," and "She's out of My Life" were essential listening in the late '70s and early '80s. The release also contains the kinetic "Working Day and Night" and "Burn This Disco Out." Paul McCartney contributes "Girlfriend." Thanks to Quincy Jones's production, it was still all about the music back then. The artistry Jackson exhibited on Off the Wall still amazes. Avoiding the shallow excesses of most of the period's disco, Jackson's dance rhythms here are made all the more powerful by Jackson's vocal restraint. --Steve Gdula --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.Read more ›
Under the supervision of Quincy Jones, OFF THE WALL illustrated some of Jackson's most soulful material. The title-track is among the album's smoothest, and introduces his silky feel for the dance-floor. The lively "Working Day And Night" was a teaser for the singles "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough" and "Rock With You," both of which reached #1 on the pop charts. Slowing down the pace, the album also hosted some romantic tunes which, through the years, have become classics in their own right. With "Girlfriend" and "She's Out Of My Life," Michael proved that he never lost his golden touch when it came to love songs. Other highlights include the soulful "I Can't Help It".
This version contains bonus material, such as demo versions of "Dont Stop Til You Get Enough", and interviews, and bonus tracks. This is clearly one of his best albums, making it essential for your collection. OFF THE WALL provides a unique sound, and its still ahead of its time even more than 20 years later.
