Thread: Branca: Unreleased Music Unlikely in the Foreseeable Future

  1. They should just release 10 or 15 songs every 3 or 4 years if they are contractually allowed in my opinion. Isn't the estate solvent now, all taxes having been paid?

    It doesn't really matter if the songs are complete or not, its more about the art.

    Not quite, no. There's still the IRS case ongoing.

    As for other folks, self-entitlement is stamping your feet, throwing toys out of the pram and acting highly pissed. It is also demanding this, that and the other. Such is the state of fandom today.

    Hardcore fans account for less than half of sales for any project. And they're quite a divided bunch anyway neither are they this organised group who can make or break any posthumous MJ project. Let's not overestimate the influence of the usually nonsensical, hysterical hardcore MJ fans as a group.

How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, some afternoon that is so deeply a part of your being that you can't even concieve of your life without it? Perhaps four or five times more. Perhaps not even that. How many times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps twenty. And yet it all seems limitless." - Brandon Lee

    Neither - it's an insult to both!

    I don't. :-P I rarely find demo or rough versions of songs interesting beyond a one time listen. That's why I mentioned leaving them off an official release.

    John, thinking about it a little deeper, I actually agree on Xscape. I'm not imagining much left music-wise to be released, though. I hope I'm wrong!

    I'm the same as you on the demo/rough versions. Once or a handful of times is enough, really. Michael put his best material out during his lifetime, no question.

    I'm very interested in how songs evolved as they were created. So I think I'd be more interested in demos of already released songs than songs MJ never got the chance to finish. Although preferably I'd have both

    You're suggesting that Invincible is better than it's outtakes? I think you're in the minority.

    Couldn't disagree more than the best material Michael recorded is what he chose to release.

    Some of the outtakes we've heard in the last few years are equal to or better than some of the material in his official catalog. God knows what else is in the vault.

    Though it's all depending on taste.

    Forgot about that! Easy to do!
