First Impressions: 'This Is It' Reminds Us Of Michael's Legacy Again

Monday, October 12, 2009

June 25th seems like such a distant and upsetting memory, as it was the day we all learned of the passing of the King of Pop. Yet, still we managed to cope by the music that Michael Jackson had graced upon us and that helped console us. Now the memories of "what could've been" are brought back into our minds today with the early bird release of the hotly anticipated single, "This Is It". The soaring tune, which features backing vocals by the Jackson brothers, was an unreleased number from the Dangerous days that recently was revived to coincide with the This Is It movie project, which will be in theaters later this month. It's a pristine ballad that is, without question, a fine gem in Michael's chest of musical jewels. The phrasing is on par and the orchestral mixed with doo-wop elements make this song sparkle, it's not the finest ballad Michael has released but there is quality there. Hearing this song for the first time just kind of brings it all back to feelings of a bittersweet haunt. Still one thing is for certain, it surely does tug at the heart strings.
