Review of HIStory: Past, Present and Future - Book I

That second disc, man... probably one of my all time favorite MJ albums. It's incredibly dark overall and really reflects the deep turmoil he was being put through at the time. Songs like "Scream", "This Time Around" and "D.S." were some of the rawest, angriest material he's ever put out (on this album at least, "Morphine" from Blood on the Dance Floor was a great example of this too) and I respect him for that. I feel like these kinds of songs expressed a very emotional side of Michael that had never been seen before. Of course, there's also some other great tracks on here like his incredible cover of the Beatles "Come Together" which he performed at the end of the Moonwalker short film. The title track is a masterpiece and I love the mellow, somber atmosphere that "Stranger in Moscow" provokes. Michael Jackson was and always will be an array of genius, talent, and authenticity, both in his music and personality.
