On the plus side, the album artist decided to obscure the lower half of Pedo Pan's face.

It looks like a dog collar... weird. Plus some of the tracks are not really "unreleased". They've been online for a long time. Of course the producers are gonna "modernize" them, which doesn't sound good at all.

Jacko looks like an alien head peeping out from a bowl. Obviously, the new album is probably horrible with only eight remixed and reimagined Wacko with a choice of a deluxe set with the original vault material included. It will wind up in the clearance bins across the globe with all the others in Wacko's worthless dollar store/bargain outlet catalog. I am looking forward to charting its drop off the billboard charts after its first week. There is no doubt that this new release will miss the top ten also like "Blood On The Dance Floor" "Number Ones" "Immortal" "The Essential Michael Jackson" and the laughable, "Bad 25" before it. Michael Jackson's black soul will never "Xscape" the pit of Hell.

Karma.

According to Wikipedia (lol), these are the eight tracks:

Xscape (recorded in 2001)
Slave to the Rhythm (recorded in 1989)
Blue Gangsta (recorded in 2001)
A Place With No Name (recorded in 1989-1990)
Love Never Felt So Good (recorded in 1983)
Do You Know Where Your Children Are (recorded in 1989-1990)
She Was Loving Me (have no idea the timeline)
Chicago (possibly 1986-1987 Bad sessions)

The Wikipedia article of the album claims the recorded timeline was between 2001-2009 but I beg to differ... some of the tracks named was recorded during the infamous Dangerous sessions and others during the Invincible sessions with a few from earlier recording sessions in the early and mid 1980s.

Apparently these songs are gonna be "contemporized". I didn't even know that was a word... "Slave to the Rhythm" is the alleged first single from the album.

It's funny that is what the title is Xscape because in my opinion he did escape and not die to get out of IRS tax fraud. Also, Beatle John Lennon estate fraud of hiding an inheritance.

Michael Jackson is in the Middle East where Janet Jackson is. If they dug up that grave in California they would find it empty or a fake dummy in it.

Nothing else matters only that Michael's ok and
In good health.and he was happy.all haters are
Scum of the earth Just leave him alone.
Some of these haters have such shriveled minds, hearts, and souls that they simply can't comprehend that MJ's nephews loved him.

Singing why without him.when they put Michael
On screen.it really was so emotional.you could see how much he meant to them.they even wore MJ bad t shirt.you could see in their face how they were hurting.we all miss him.
I remember seeing one of his nephews become very emotional after MJ was arrested. He genuinely loved his uncle and was very upset about what had happened.

I wonder how many of those nephews were secretly thinking "Oh God it's finally over, I'm free"...

That remains to be seen if Wacko goes straight to number one. I am sure we will all hear about it as proof of Michael Jackson's everlasting talents. However, if the album is another failure, you fans will continue praising Jacko as if he were still on top of the world. If "Bad 25" and "Immortal" both failed to reach the top ten, it is highly likely this one will too. One look at its laughable cover, we can tell this is more Sony junk meant to be sold to floons and no one else. I will be surprised if it does well on the first week of release but even if it does, it will drop off the billboard top 200 in record time.

Yea you would find a dummy in there. A dead dummy named Wacko Jacko.
