This unusual compilation from Motown features Michael Jackson's lead vocal tracks from a number of early Jackson 5 and solo hits. Presented here a cappella without the backing tracks and generally without his brothers' harmonic contributions, it's easy to appreciate Michael's perfect pitch and impeccable timing on songs like "I Want You Back," "ABC," and "Dancing Machine." Most of these songs are from Michael's (and the Jackson 5's) early-'70s heyday and, by and large, the voice heard here is the youthful boy soprano of his early teens. While it's unlikely that this collection will receive more than a few curious spins, it does offer a revealing look at the technique and early mastery of one of pop music's great vocalists. That the music is from the pre-digital, pre-pitch-correction era makes these performances even more impressive.

Trip Hop in 10 Albums

At the dawn of the ’90s, the trip hop wave overtook the UK with an electronica sound influenced by Jamaican music and hip hop beats. With their chloroformed rhythms and heavy ambience, Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Morcheeba and several other outfits invented a kind of dark, futuristic and often cinematic soul music. Here’s a spotlight on 10 albums from a genre with blurred sonic borders but a definitive musical influence.

Sly 100% Stone

With "There's a Riot Going On", Sly Stone and his Family brought funk into America's chaotic 1970s. Welcome to hell!

“Thriller”: The Anatomy of a Masterpiece

With "Thriller” in 1982, the best-selling album of all time, Michael Jackson broke down the boundaries between styles, races and audiences. However, most of all, it was an album that completely shook up the pop music industry of the 20th century.
