    Yeah I'm a little nervous and curious about this. I hope CB does a good job with it, I'm not doubting his abilities. But I've listened to some metal covers of Thriller on youtube, and I just don't think it translates well into the metal world.

    However I'd pay money to watch CB breakdance and moonwalk like MJ.

    I can't wait to hear this one. I think it's going to be good, might even be great. They Don't Really Care About Us should make a great metal song!

    This is a disgrace. Chuck Billy singing a pedophile tribute song? I just lost some respect for Chuck. The whole project is a bad idea.

    Um...is this from the people who brought us Sin-Atra? If it is then this too will probably be a turd.

    It's out...


    It's not half bad, though admittedly Michael Jackson music has always been a guilty pleasure of mine.

    I like MJ too. I think his was the first cassette I ever owned as a kid, then beach boys, then Aerosmith, then guns n roses, and then I was introduced to metal. The rest is history.

    Yeah, Thriller was my first cassette too. Went to Kiss and Queen from there. Later I bought State of Euphoria and Persistance of time (also on cassette). Then I used a Maxwell chrome to record Among the Living (I was one of them pirates who destroyed music through illegal tape recording) and bought Fistful of Metal on vinyl. I loathed Fistful of Metal, though. Still do. Attack of the Killer B's was the last cassette I bought, I think. Bought them all on cd after that, apart from FFOM.

    I must say I'm really disappointed with this. Sounds really lame.

    I am also a fan of MJ.

    Yep - it's bloody awful. Chuck should've left this well alone.

    A couple of the covers released with the Dark Roots of Earth were unexpectedly great (the Queen and Scorpions ones in particular), but this is just plain craphouse.

    To me Chuck has the best voice in thrash, so I have not much problems with his voice, but the backing music just doesn't groove. At all.
