The Ultimate Collection is a box set by American recording artist Michael Jackson. It was released on November 16, 2004 by Epic Records and consists of four audio CDs and one DVD. The album sold 57,000 copies in 2004 only, and on May 16, 2013, it was certified Gold as a multi-disk package by Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for physical shipments of 100,000 copies; its certification was then upgraded to Platinum, signifying shipments of 200,000 copies, in the same date.

It was the last time that Michael Jackson was Michael Jackson. No matter what, Jackson ensured that the melodies were his own, while Riley sought to merge his trademark New Jack Swing with Quincy Jones’ baroque pop. At one point, . Reid and Babyface were brought in to help produce, but none of their contributions made the final cut. Over 60 songs wound up being written over a period of 18 months. And in his videos, Michael Jackson managed to best them all, making him the undisputed King. For most of my pre-adolescence, he was a pure sorcerer, a demigod immune to the gravitational pull and perimeters that stifle the rest of us. At 10 years old, I assumed the video was shot somewhere in Egypt, because even though I no longer believed in bullshit like Santa Claus, I still accepted Michael Jackson at face value.

Alongside Jones, Michael made his own disco anthems, but rather than merely copying what came before, he expanded the form with dense, orchestral arrangements that mixed in sophisticated layers of strings, horns, and syncopation while never never losing their underlying funk. This is heard on iconic opener "Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough," the first song Michael ever wrote by himself and the first of four record-breaking Top 10 hits from the album, which has now sold 30 million copies worldwide

From his voice to his image to his dancing, it was so easy to get swept up in his High Pop Art. Off the Wall, his first adult solo album, showed off an extraordinary young man with astonishing moves, and Thriller, well, Thriller was about something more than marketing; it was the work of a pop auteur of unparalleled gifts, as both a composer and (importantly) a celebrity as well. Then things got weird. 142. Wings of My Love, Got to Be There (1972): The Jackson 5 had a starburst of a career - some six No. 1 or 2 singles in the space of less than 18 months. There was always tension in the family about Michael getting too much attention; the parents always husbanded his talents - and let’s be honest, his money-making ability - for the benefit of the family as a whole.

First up, Michael Jackson – The Indispensable Collection. The Indispensable Collection. The ‘live album’ samples the majority of Jackson’s performance at Wembley Stadium on July 16, 1988 – one of his 123 record-breaking Bad World Tour dates. The inclusion of the live album, officially titled Live At Wembley July 16, 1988, doesn’t sit entirely comfortably with me. Unlike the rest of this collection, Live At Wembley July 16, 1988 is not a studio album. For me, the contents of a collection like this should be consistent. Michael is not here to put his own finishing touches, but I am willing to let his trusted collaborators do what they can to bring this music to a wider audience.

It holds some interest as the last song they ever performed live as a group, in 2001. Thriller resets the focus as the ultimate Halloween song, and one which inspired one of the best videos of all time. The hits stack up, with Beat It taking over the reins. Jackson penned this number one and really pushed the boundaries of pop music, featuring a guitar solo from one Eddie Van Halen.

He meant that the album wasn’t true to the artist’s spirit, but his appraisal may also have had a more literal meaning. Since Sony first released a snippet of the lead single, Breaking News, a month before the album’s release, the authenticity of its vocals, along with those on two other tracks, Keep Your Head Up and Monster, has come into question. I KNOW my Uncle’s voice and something’s seriously wrong when you have immediate FAMILY saying it’s not him, Taryll Jackson, the son of Michael’s brother Tito, wrote, on Twitter, in November of 2010. What the biological family knew about Jackson, and what he hid from them, is, of course, a fraught subject.

See all customer images. My best advice to the purchaser is to really LISTEN to Michael's WORDS as well as enjoy the unending talent in his music making.

There are several Michael Jackson greatest-hits compilations out there, each one its own take on what should be the definitive portrait of the gloved one's career. The Ultimate Collection, The Essential Collection (different from the one here), and Number Ones have all surfaced in 2003 and 2004, and HIStory a few years prior.
