The title track has already leaked, and it sounds fantastic – certainly a lot better than anything on Invincible, the 2001 album the song was written for.

It's not quite on par with his classics on Thriller or Bad, but it's definitely as good as the best stuff on Dangerous, which is another way of saying "better than most pop music."

Posthumous albums are always a little weird, especially when they've been messed around with after the fact, but if everything on it Xscape is this good, maybe it's not such a bad idea?
