    The Behind the Mask video leaked online seemingly out of nowhere, so who knows? This could be the same situation.

    I'm calling BS. Nothing OFFICIALLY announced by Sony & The Estate yet. Unless either one says otherwise, it ain't happening. And IMO why release a OTW re-issue now when they should have done it for the 25th or 30th anniversary? Take the year off, and worry about Dangerous 25 next year.

    The original uploaders of the video were notified by Sony/the Estate to take it down because the material "wasn't finalized yet". Suspicious?

    Reissues don't have to center around anniversaries. Very few actually do. The thirtieth anniversary would have fell in August 2009 - you can see why they couldn't put it together then.

    There have been rumors circulating for years that Michael and Sony were putting together a thirtieth anniversary package since November 2008 that fell through for one reason or another. Some say lack of new material, some say disagreements among the two parties, so on and so forth.

    So all the vids are being removed due to requests from Sony and The Estate. Guess there could be something in this after all. Personally, I wish they would have taken a year off and concentrated on making Dangerous 25 perfect, but hey ho, I'll take what I can get.

    It should still be outlined that Dangerous25 isn't confirmed nor is it a likely endeavor. Not enough nostalgia draw for it to be worthwhile.

    This reissue of Off the Wall will get a bunch of media attention simply by virtue of it being Off the Wall and considered by many to be Michael's best album. Dangerous sits in an odd midway zone between "public appreciation" and "complete anonymity," where a reissue would make sense but wouldn't garner numbers anywhere near what they would expect.

    I know I'm probably dragging this point through the dirt but I often see people speak of Dangerous25 as if it is a guarantee or a likelihood, which it's not. We have a tendency to overhype our expectations (understandably — I've done it my own fair share of times) and it's for the best that we keep them tame.

    For now we seem to be getting a project that sounds pretty damn good in its rough, pre-announced state. That sounds pretty good to me.

    Also, quick side point: The estate has been clear in their plans to withhold as much material as possible to prolong the Jackson brand. So let's be realistic - we would be getting the same amount of new songs whether or not the remixes were included. Per the estate's longtime endeavors, the remixes seem to be there just for the sake of commercial viability and public interest - which worked (at least in part) for Thriller25.

    The second disc of Bad25 had 23 minutes of open space on it. There was more than enough space to put more music. They made the conscious decision not to do so, which begs the implication that we would have gotten six demos regardless of what came after. In which case the remixes really aren't hurting anything.
