I prefer the second one.

And R. Kelly is amazing live, have any of you ever seen his concert special from about a year ago where he covers a bunch of Sam Cooke songs? He killed the vocals on it, I recommend it.

Yes! I posted the video below a few months ago. Amazing work from Kelly with a classic presentation of a 60's soul performance, and I believe this was recorded after he had vocal chord surgery!

I like how he always had the crowd eating out of the palm of his hands by just standing there, wish i could've seen him perform live

Also looking back on his concerts it wasn't just girls going crazy there were a lot of men going just as crazy & passing out just as much as the women

Also his Invincible album is very underrated i just listened to it last night, it was more of an R&B album than any of his previous ones if you're a MJ fan you should give it a listen.

Yes, Michael Jackson was a really special person. I know I won't ever see that combination of talent, timing, and determination, to the degree he had it all, in my lifetime. I was fortunate enough to get to see him live during his HISTORY tour. The anticipation statewide was unreal. Another show was added because tickets sold out so quickly for the first one. I'm sure he could have sold out Aloha Stadium for over a week if he had wanted to. He did not fail to deliver the most entertaining, professional show I've ever seen. By this tour he was past his prime, I would have loved to see him live during the Bad Era, but it didn't matter since he was a god on stage with his dance moves and presence.

I remember buying Invincible shortly after it was released. I think it's a great album and didn't understand why it didn't do well. "Speechless" is one of my favorite songs off of Invincible.

If I remember, that album was barely promoted. Wasn't much hype for it either. Plus people had it in their mind that Michael was a creep by then anyway. Favorite songs from that album were Break of Dawn, Heaven Can Wait and Butterflies.

re: R&B Thread

I love all those songs you mentioned Headliner. The funny thing about this Michael Jackson disappointment or under performance/whatever the critics wanted to say about Invincible, it still sold over two million copies in the first three months after it was released here in the United States. People always held Michael to that "Thriller standard" which is damn near unattainable even for Michael Jackson who I think also wanted to recreate that success. There is nothing wrong with wanting to do better or as good as your masterpiece but I don't think that worth of a good album like Invincible should be compared to it or labeled a disappointment.

re: R&B Thread

I'm gonna be honest, I've never heard Invincible. If I'm not mistaken, the only songs I've heard from the album are Butterflies and You Rock My World. Btw, the live performance of You Rock My World where Chris Tucker and I believe Usher come out and join Mike on stage is one of my favorite performances ever. Probably because I'm a big Chris Tucker fan, but yeah.

Break of Dawn and Butterflies were great songs, loved both of them. Liked the Butterflies remix with Eve too.

It was NOT cool to like Michael Jackson by that point. He was viewed as a joke by many, largely because that's what the media portrayed him as(and he didn't do himself many favors either). Then he dies, and suddenly it's cool to be a Michael Jackson fan. Watching how the general public and media flip-flopped in their treatment of Jackson was CRAZY to me. Disgusting. People don't know how to make their own judgements and they definitely don't know how to stick to their guns. Bunch of sheep.

re: R&B Thread

He was and people did flip-flop like crazy when it came to Michael. It's always like that with people though. I mean, look at Amy Winehouse. All people did was talk shit about her and make jokes about her but then once she died all you heard was people talking about how talented she was, she was a good person, so on and so forth.

Just the society we live in.

re: R&B Thread

Speaking of Michael during that time when the media/critics were all over him, remember this special mini-movie called "Ghosts" he did? I have it on DVD and love watching it. I think the video and that guy Michael is dressed as is used in this video in a role of the media and Michael used this song as a subtle message to them, but it's mostly him just having scary FUN that Michael always loved to do.



Also, notice Mos Def in there lol.
