Behind The Mask single release in France 6 Years, 9 Months ago Karma: 11
This is going to be the cover for the release of Behind The Mask in France. I have to say... it's boring.

I gotta say that the "Michael" album is Dangerous all over again... I like the cover, but I've seen it before...

Is this for real? Looks too much like the 'In The Closet' cover.

I have to agree with you all. It looks ok, but I can't help thinking: "been there done that". If you know what I mean. I wish there was a bit more effort put into creating that cover.

I miss Michael. *sigh*

I'm still undecided if this is Sony trying to deliberately envoke images / feelings associated with Michael's earlier works... or just pure laziness or lack or inspiration. I suspect the latter :(

Whilst I appreciate the tracks on "Michael" are not new recordings, they really need to choose if they intend to 'just' release the back catalogue to fulfill their estate contract - or give each project the 'legacy' aspect time and promotion the fans feel they deserve - i.e. carefully researching recording dates, personnel involved, etc and if making tracks public as single releases, promotional or otherwise, they treat as any other profile release.

My only hope is they use these single releases as an opportunity to release the original unaltered recordings as extras - like with 'The Girl Is Mine 2008' where we had the opportunity to hear Michael's amazing solo (pre McCartney) vocal and a different arrangement to the 'Thriller' version. I always liked "Behind The Mask" from the Greg Phillinganes version - which sounds more like Michael's production sound and style at the time than this version...

I miss Michael too.

... & I can't see a forum on the "Michael" album itself, so just to add quickly... a related concern about the archive releases... this is only the first such release (although they have probably already counted "This Is It" as technically it included new material) and already Sony are being lazy - wasn't "(I Like) The Way You Love Me" already made available on "The Ultimate Collection"?! There must be many more release quality tracks in MJ's archives - I know / have several (often already leaked) tracks that are of high quality and could be officially released...
