HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book I Tracklist:
It's missing some stuff. Digitally removed. If you know, well, then you know. Get this on CD instead. And he is NOT a molester. Notice how molesters all have similar characteristics. MJ doesnt fit the profile. He was just mentally stunted, and acted like a kid. The real pedophiles are the elites that accuse him. Do your research. Stop believing the lying media, which is what MJ always warned us about.
OK. I think we need to get a few things straight when it comes to this particular album. I see that there are people who don’t understand the word synthesizers. For instants, take the track in titled scream featuring Janet Jackson. A reviewer says that there is a cricket in the background. No there isn’t. What you hear is some police sirens in the background along with a scream, breaking glass, and glass along with the snare timed correctly to the rhythm. You also hear thank you for letting me be myself being sampled. If anyone remembers the album rhythm nation by Janet Jackson, she sampled that exact song back in 1989. If you don’t believe me, look in the liner notes. Now keep in mind, I am a blind musician and I recognize samples when I hear them once or twice. I might not get the sample right away, but I can pretty much make a guess. The song they don’t care about us was re-recorded after Michael came under fire for lyrics that were deemed inappropriate for listeners who were Jewish. When the Jewish community protested, Michael tried to defend those lyrics by saying he did not mean to be racist in anyway shape or form. He was talking about everyone blacks, whites, everybody. But there was such an outcry, that Michael had to go back into the studio and edit certain lyrics out. Lyrics I will not repeat in this review. If you want to know what those lyrics are, look them up on the Internet. I had a girlfriend originally buy me the double cassette back in 1995. I still have my copy on CD to this day and it’s the year 2019. Sadly, I don’t remember when I bought the CD. But I will say this. If you go and buy the CD again, you will get the edited version of they don’t care about us. They do not make the CD with the uncensored version of they don’t care about us. Keep that in mind.
For 38 years.The late and great Jeff Porcaro lent his drumming talent. Not just to the band Toto. But also to Steely Dan Boz Scaggs and hundreds and thousands of other artists that needed his unique and own personal groove. Very soon it will be 26 years since his tragic death. He is without a doubt the best drummer of all time and truly missed and loved by all that worked with him. He leaves a lasting legacy that will never go away. And will always remain the number one drummer who appears every night in my dreams playing drums on my heartstrings forever and ever. I love him and will never stop thinking about him. He is so sexy 🎧😂🎻📀🎸😈💽🎼💛😏📲🎤💿❤️❤️💜🐱💙🎷😇🐈🎺💚📱🎹 Goodnight my dreamyeyed angel

I heard it’s based off something that really happened I wonder what tho it’s kind of scary to me tho LMK what u think cause I can’t listen to that song without like being scared about maybe what someone did or what Michael saw
This is a album I highly recommend. Mike shows that he is ticked off about all the lies about him. It's brilliant and this is a very underrated album. I'd rank this as his third best album(1. Invincible 2. Thriller). Scream- 9.5/10 They Don't Care About Us- 9.5/10 Stranger In Mascow- 7/10 This Time Around- 7/10 Earth Song- 8/10 D.S.- 7.5/10 Money- 7/10 Come Together- 8.5/10 You Are Not Alone- 9.5/10 Childhood- 8/10 Tabloid Junkie- 10/10 2 Bad- 9/10 History- 8.5/10 Little Susie- 7/10 Smile- 7.5/10
But still very moving and powerful songs as his songs always are..👍🏽I especially love Stranger in Moscow 😶so unique and soothing...🎶💭you could tell he was going through a tough time in his life when you listen to this album compared to 'Thriller' and 'Off the Wall'
I Love all the songs, i like the way how he took revenge on Sneddon through D.S. it's a masterpiece the reason i love this album is that it is more Personal for compare to his other records, i love it when he's angry because you rarely get him angry!
Yo I'm in love with MJ and I was searching for the rapper Future and Michaels album was just randomly the first option like I searched a specific album from Future and I got SO LIT WHEN I SAW MJS ALBUM JUST THERE I WAS LIKE YAAAAAASSSSS SLAY MJ
HIStory: Past, Present and Future is perhaps one of the finest albums out there. This is one of Michael Jacksons most mature and solid albums in his entire career. It is sad that Michael Jackson and his label didn't think the second disc would do well as a stand alone album because it holds some of the most treasured pieces of art in his career. From "Stranger in Moscow" and "Earth Song" to "Childhood" and "Smile", HIStory perfectly presents Michael's most personal struggles in an absolutely beautiful execution. Not only is this one of his most involved albums, but up there with one of his best.
A truly timeless album! Better than Thriller and Bad, in my opinion, and on par with Dangerous. Highlights include Stranger in Moscow, They Don’t Care About Us, You Are Not Alone, and This Time Around, and 2 Bad—the latter is highly underrated. Buy this album whether you are new to Michael Jackson music (which is a surprise) or you are already a fan and are getting tired of his earlier music.
I was scared of Michael Jacksons music when I saw the cover of "Thriller." I had nightmares for weeks! I was only six at the time, and I didn't listen to any of his music until just recently. My music teacher introduced me to and my classmates the film "This is it." After hearing "They don't care about us and "Smooth criminal." I fell in love with his music. If you are one of those kids who listen to pop artists, stop listening to "Anaconda and "Talk dirty to me" and listen to at least one of his songs. Note: I would hear "They don't care about us" first. Sorry I was late to the party.
By the release of "HIStory" in the states, Michael's tabloid image had for overshadowed his music. The excellent and intriguing "Blood on the Dance Floor" and "HIStory" was basically rejected, by Jackson's commercial standards. Those albums were globally influenced because like the woman who was his progeny, Michael and Diana Ross were bigger international stars than stars in their homeland. Songs like "Stranger in Moscow", "Earth Song" and "Scream" were designed to appeal to his global fan base. "Tabloid Junkie", "This a time Aound" and "You Are Not Alone" may be more oriented to the urban American consumer. Maybe.
So this is my favorite album by MJ because every song on it has its own meaning, we wouldn't have gotten this album if b***hes wold just be quiet but at the same time I'm happy. Scream is awesome..they don't care about us shows that mic wont stand for rascism. You have a great cover of the Beatles Come Together...the diss of the century in D.S. You are not alone shows that Michael is still the best as well as earth song. Money, Tabloid Junkie, 2 bad, shows that the media and idiots can keep spreading the lies because it didnt bother him. Childhood and Little Susie give us michael's soft side while still giving us meaning. With the fifteen hits this is definitely a must bu. I prefer to buy this and then smooth criminal since its not on here and then you'll have an awesome collection...HISTORY!
