⇒ "They Don't Care About Us" – As this song became controversial for its jewish lyrics, same with Scream it censor those parts.

I have to say my copy of this album doesn't sound that bad. I have a little bit of crackling, but honestly, not too much that it would really bother me. The picture albums themselves look fantastic. I ultimately bough this album to frame, so I'm not overly concerned with sound quality, but if I ever felt the need to listen to it I wouldn't be annoyed about it.

I am very fortunate to have been able to recently purchase a sealed copy of this rare and wonderful box set for a reasonable price and to enjoy the experience of opening it as it was 25 years ago. I have owned this album on CD since 1995 and have always loved it, so I was prepared to get some serious enjoyment out of this set. And boy did it deliver! I wasn’t sure what to expect, being a 90s vinyl release and all, but it exceeded what expectations I did have. The box itself is decently solid, though thin walled and the artwork is nice and clear. The book is extremely nice containing some cool pictures, album/award info, heartfelt quotes from Michael’s celebrity friends, and more. The 3 LPs are nicely pressed and extremely clean. The only background noise that I experienced was on LP3 due to some light pressure wear as a result of being squished underneath the book and other two LPs for a couple decades. Which brings me to my only real gripes. One being that the book should have been packed underneath the records rather than on top of them, and two, it would have been much nicer to have jackets for the LPs or at least thicker style inner sleeves rather than the paper thin inner sleeves that they each came in. That was the only aspect of the box set that felt cheap and a little insulting. Back to the LPs, there were only a few stray pops and clicks after being cleaned and I was Very pleased and, honestly, surprised by the sound quality all around. The “greatest hits” portion is said to be remastered and it shows. I don’t know if I’ve ever heard those songs with more clarity and depth. Very impressive work in my opinion. The only issues that I had with this portion were a slight amount of IGD at the end of both sides of LP1 and some shallow tone arm waggle on side 3 that caused some audible warping during Heal the World. But, those issues weren’t too distracting and I was mainly concerned with the HIStory Continues portion of the album anyway, which ended up being about perfect. The new songs were surprisingly a bit quieter than the older songs, but not abnormally quiet. All of the new songs sounded terrific and I experienced no notable issues during this section other than the little bit of background noise on LP3 that I mentioned earlier, but that wasn't the fault of the pressing itself. I really can’t express all of the enjoyment and nostalgia that I felt while listening to the songs in this section, but to give an idea, when the drums kicked in during Earth Song I smiled so hard that my cheeks hurt immediately. This box set was a tremendous experience many years coming and I am thankful to now own it and be able to enjoy it again and again. I can definitely recommend it to any MJ fan if you can find a copy at a decent price, but that is sadly very difficult. Nonetheless, it is well worth it and shouldn’t disappoint.

Got this original '95 PROMO set, it's very quiet and clean, no pops, no crackle, and it sounds good overall, not the best I would expect, vocals and all music sound a bit set back in the new stuff, and generally well mastered for the best of portion. More for the collectability and not for an amazing vinyl experience.

Agreed with a previous post that the surface noise really is annoying on the quiet passages on such beautiful songs. A lot of the music during this MJ era was done on drum machines, computer generated music, etc. so you won't get the beautiful vinyl warmth and sound that we loved on his previous albums from the Quincy Jones era. Sound quality is still fine overall. But still a must have for any collection for MJ fans.

This release is a first pressing issued with uncensored lyrics of "They Don't Care About Us" and the original intro of "HIStory", but what made it one of a kind back in the day was that the discs were silver instead of gold.

I seem to have a Australian release not listed.
- Scream is not censored.
- History has the changed intro.
The discs have a different matrix runout than any other I can find.
I found it at a garage sale so I don't know when it was released or if it is a reissue.

As far as picture discs go, this release is about as good as you can get. Naturally, there is a constant hiss of surface noise, but it fades into the background once each track starts. The noise more or less disappears even during the quiet parts of songs and you’re only reminded of it during the time between tracks. Otherwise, my copy has pretty much no pops and clicks even right out of the package. There is a surprising amount of clarity and depth to the music for being a picture disc, which makes it all very listenable and enjoyable. Hopefully there will eventually be a proper reissue of this underrated album. But, in the meantime, this picture disc is the next best thing to spending half a million dollars on an original 1995 pressing.

It is really really stupid that some people just don't get it.
Michael Jackson intended the very best for humankind in delivering his wonderful lyrics to They Don't Care About Us and those people crucified him for the song.
Not satisfied with editing said song, the record company then had the nerve to ask Michael to apologize for the lyrics! (see RARE white sticker which states his public apology).
There's nothing worse than an artist being edited, simply because record companies don't have the balls to stand by their artists?
