When this album was released, I was impressed and couldn't wait to see what he would produce next. I honestly thought he was headed down the right road, for a solid career. But these three sentences, from the article, sum up my thoughts, about what happened next.
"Those aggressive grunts and hiccups hadnt yet come to dominate his singing. Hes not playing a monster or a gangster or dressing like a Klingon general. Lyrically, he doesnt take hyper-defensive stances against gossipy critics or those who would abuse the trust of elephants."
Who knew the road the drug-addicted child molester would intentionally choose, after this.

I agree. I thought his career was solid in the eighties and that he really had it going on with the releases of Off the Wall, Thriller and Bad. I liked his music then, but really didn't pay much attention to his life other than all the bizarre things I heard and read occasionally. That is, until I came to this forum and was shown the court documents.
I like how the author of the article states that in 1987, after his Bad album, he basically waved a gloved hand goodbye and became weirder...and weirder, until his addiction, and his mental illness, became his demise in the end.

Off the Wall remains the finest artistic moment of Michael Jackson's entire career. It's the only one you can honestly say is a musical landmark whereas Thriller was more of a visual landmark.
