Michael Jackson - The Stripped Mixes (2009) Retail CD
The first of what is sure to be many posthumous releases from Michael Jackson, The Stripped Mixes does indeed contained stripped mixes of 11 Motown hits from Michael and the Jackson Five, mixes that cut each track down to the bare-bones of vocals, bass guitar, and percussion, augmented by the occasional guitar or keyboard. Often, the logic of what is left behind doesn't quite make sense: "I Want You Back" and "ABC" have no drums (or fuzz guitar), so they feel a little tipsy and top-heavy, and it's hard to call "Ben" and "With a Child's Heart" stripped when there are echoes of strings in the backgroundmore…. Since so much of the genius of these recordings lay in the arrangements, having so much of the arrangement absent means that the music just sounds awkward and incomplete, as if it was waiting for the final round of mixing and overdubs. Still, if the purpose of this disc is to draw attention to Michael's vocals, The Stripped Mixes does its job, but just because his voice is pushed front and center does not mean that this is the best place to appreciate his genius.
