Essential is right

When you have a star like Michael Jackson who has produced many great songs in the 40+ years he spent performing it seems like it would be hard to narrow his career down to two-discs, but for the most part the "Essential" series has done it again bring up a summary of the career of The King of Pop. We get to greatest hits from his days in the Jackson 5, to The Jacksons, and of course, finally we make our way to his legendary solo-career. It gives you a sense of the evolution his music underwent over the decades.

If you're a new fan of the International Star, or as a long time fan would like a nice playlist of his hits, this CD is very well compiled. My only complaint was the omission of his "Earth Song" and some of his other, more recent work would have been a nice addition to make the listener really comprehend the changes in his music. Aside from that it is almost a perfect summary of Michael Jackson's career.

'The Essential Michael Jackson' on its two CDs certainly showcases the talent of a man who was perhaps the greatest entertainer to ever walk to face of the Earth, with his ability to bring about many emotions in his various songs, from being sweet, to rough, Michael had to ability to change his approach on and off the stage.

Notable songs include:
I Want You Back
Don't Stop Until You Get Enough
Beat It
Billie Jean
You Are Not Alone
Smooth Criminal
Black or White
And many, many more.
