Michael Jackson - Blood On The Dance Floor (Epic) It is simply amazing how many ways recording artists and companies can find to wring more money from fans from one single album. There are remixes, remixes and more remixes, granted that some do have a few new songs thrown in. Which brings us to The Gloved One. HIStory was released last year to some rather mixed reviews and probably was not as successful as Michael Jackson would have liked. So, what to do? Well, release a remix with some new songs of course! Therein comes Blood On The Dance Floor, which boasts five new numbers including the title track and eight remixes making a total of 76 minutes playing time. Wow. Jackson may go down in music history as one of the biggest moneymakers, but that certainly does not stop him from being caught in a rut. The truth of the matter is Jackson is starting to sound the same - or perhaps he always did but people were more forgiving then. He has always played to his own beat, and in this day and age he is starting to sound a little aged. Blood On The Dance Floor is hardly any different from Bad, either in rhythm or in tune. Morphine, another new song, is one of the more interesting mixes on the album even though it very nearly falls into the same trap. A little twist in tempo towards the middle saves it. All I can say is Blood on The Dance Floor is Michael Jackson through and through. Seventy-six minutes of this would make diehard Jackson fans giddy with euphoria, but for the rest of us, it is 76 minutes too much of the same old thing.
