Synopsis

Amazon.com
The title of 1975's Best of Michael Jackson seems something like an unfunny joke in the wake of the global success that the star found with Off the Wall and Thriller just a few years later. Best offers a handful of charted singles ranging from the incandescent "I Wanna Be Where You Are" and "Got to Be There" to the ephemeral "Rockin' Robin" and the tedious rat-love flick-theme "Ben." The rest is a mishmash of workaday sentiment ("With a Child's Heart," "Music and Me") and a few tracks of the proverbial pleasant-but-unexceptional work that the solo Jackson would soon transcend. ?-Rickey Wright

THE GUY I FELL IN LOVE WITH!!!
Aisha Abdullah | DC | 08/10/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This had to be my favorite album!I really fell in love with Michael's voice at the tender age of 12(now I'm 16).The first song on the album "Got to be there" had to be my favorite,favorite song then.It made me feel magic,it had me mesmorized.I would just have this feeling come over me every time I would listen to it,like you wouldn't believe.The other songs I liked were "Ben","With a child's heart","I wanna be where you are","We're almost there" and "Music and me".I remember listening to that cassette alot when I was younger.I really enjoyed it.It brings back so many memories for me.If you want to listen to some nice (young) Michael Jackson songs (along with his brothers),get this album.It's nice!"
He sings really well

"I really love this album and I'm sure everyone who listens to this will like it too. His voice is so clear and pure. I love all the songs in this album, especially Ben, With a Child's heart, Happy, One Day in Your Life, Music and Me, Morning Glow He really can sing any high notes and I think, nobody at his age can sing that good. When I hear Music and Me, it made me cry. It's really worth it! GBU Michael Jackson"

"If you are a fan of old school Michael Jackson, this album is a MUST have. I am not kidding you. I own every single Michael album (including quite a bit of J5 comps) and this collection is my favorite. His voice will melt you. It is a superb mix of the innocence that caused us to fall in love with him and the beats that you can't help but dance to. I would have to say that a large majority of the album is slower, emotional music, so if that is your liking, this is for you. If you prefer the musical stylings of his "Thriller" and "Bad" albums, HIStory would probably be a better choice. Quite a bit of this music is featured on his Moonwalker documentary video, which is where I first heard a lot of the songs and absolutly had to have them! A couple of songs are works with the Jackson Five, but most are Michael solo. Also features my ABSOLUTE Michael favorite - Music and Me."
