...not keeping Quincy Jones as his chief producer. I've always felt this way, but nobody seems to acknowledge it. So let's look at his catalogue... his three best albums as a solo artist are Off the Wall, Thriller, and Bad... they're all monumental classics and monster sellers... and they have one thing in common, unlike his other albums... they were all produced by Q. In the '90s, he decided to go with New Jack Swing producer Teddy Riley as the main guy overseeing his Dangerous album. Now Teddy is a legend in his own right, but I never felt the chemistry with him and MJ was as magical as it was with MJ and Q... except for maybe "Remember the Time," which is incredibly funky and soulful, that whole Dangerous album is languid. And let's not even talk about '01's Invincible joint. He did have some magic with R. Kelly and the "You Are Not Alone" single, but nothing ever approach the artistry of his earlier joints. Janet kept Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis... why didn't Michael keep Quincy Jones?
