内容紹介

"Man in the Music" meticulously tracks Jackson's solo career, from 1979's groundbreaking "Off the Wall" to 2001's "Invincible", to a glimpse into some of his yet-to-be-released material. With each album, Vogel places the music in its social and historical context, discusses its relation to Jackson's personal life, reveals the singer's fascinating process of artistic creation and analyses each record, from its cover, to its songs, to its aesthetic impact and cultural legacy. Rather than focusing on the surface-level sensationalism, "Man in the Music" explores and offers insight into the creative process behind Michael Jackson's work, which serious Michael Jackson fans are sure to be looking for.

レビュー

"The many fans of the King of Pop are going to love this book. Huffington Post writer Vogel began it in 2005, long before Michael Jackson's untimely death, and he wisely focuses on the music and groundbreaking recordings of Jackson's solo career. Scandals and eccentricities are relegated to the background in this critical musical analysis, which will delight even the most knowledgeable Jackson fan. Each track on each record, fr om 1979's Off the Wallthrough 2001's Invincible, including posthumously released recordings, gets a thorough analysis, with listings of the involved writers, producers, and musicians. There is plenty of contextual biographical detail, and Vogel describes the cultural and political backdrop that makes Jackson's achievements all the more remarkable. VERDICT A thoroughly enjoyable analysis of the music and life of the most popular musician of an era."--"Library Journal ""Vogel produced a smart...study of Jackson's creativity and legacy. He achieves moments of intimacy and insight: a glimpse of Jackson, an ambitious perfectionist. Vogel occasionally undermines his hard work by giving Jackson a makeover as a romantic hero rather than a celebrity. Readers will enjoy."- "Publishers Weekly ""

天国のマイケルが、この本を読み終えた後、にっこり微笑んで、本棚の「DANCING THE DREAM」の隣に保管する。・なんてシーンが思わず頭に浮かんだほど、うーんパーフェクト。「マイケルの音楽は、その美しい魂の賜物」という視点、マイケルへの敬意と賞賛に満ち溢れた内容です。この著者には、これより先に、Earth Song: Inside Michael Jackson's Magnum Opusという、earth songを最高の傑作と位置づける短編ながら、見事な評論があったので、この人の本ならばと購入(一足早かったので、アメリカサイトから)しましたが、期待どおり、いやそれ以上・・終始マイケルを賞賛しながらも、決して「妄信的な崇拝」になっていないのは、それが、当時の時代背景や批評、評価、本人のコメントも随所に盛り込みながら、(アルバム製作のたびに)、誰を、パートナーに選び、何を目指したのかを詳細に辿るなどの、きっちりした音楽的分析と考証に裏打ちされているから・・納得して読み進めることが出来ます。

さらに特筆すべきは、、HISTORY以降の、不当

5つ星のうち 5.0 Finally a great book focusing on MJ's music 2011/10/22
投稿者 happyforever - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
There are so many books talking about Michael Jackson but very few are focusing fully on his music. Michael Jackson is an artist which people tend to forget. This book reminds people about this fact and focus only on his music and creating process. The pictures and printing are all nice. Most important, it gives lots of information about MJ's records as solo artist. For all time, I always wanted to find a book that will analyze MJ's songs. This is the book I was looking for for so long. I just wish that MJ actually can saw this published when he was alive. People should really go back an relive MJ's music and cherish his genius. For MJ fans, this is a must buy. For general public, it tell you the Michael Jackson as a professional artist.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Eye Opening and Definitive 2011/10/25
投稿者 Bruce Aguilar - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
Michael Jackson is on record as saying he attempted to fuse his soul to his music in an effort to escape death. What better way then to understand the man than through his music? Man in the Music: The Creative Life and Work of Michael Jackson does just that, focuses on the inspiration, creation, reaction and historical context of Michael Jacksons considerable library of music. I think this is the first time that anyone has shone such a finely tuned light on the subject that made the world fascinated with Michael Jackson in the first place.

Whether you're a dyed in the wool fan, a musician, or just someone curious about music this will make fascinating reading. Joseph Vogel walks readers chronologically through Michael Jackson's albums first covering the album as a whole before discussing each song individually. Mr. Vogel's research includes interviews with technicians and musicians who worked with Jackson who provide insightful glimpses into the creative process. The work even includes information on a number of unreleased songs from Jackson as well as his posthumously released material.

Undoubtedly this is the definitive book on Michael Jackson's music and therefore of the man as well. It's easy to imagine perceptions being changed and reassessed from the analysis and discussion in this comprehensive and respectful work. A treasure trove that should not be missed.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Vogel's Man in the Music is a Masterpiece! 2011/11/4
投稿者 Nancy Jensen - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
Michael Jackson said "Who wants mortality? Everyone wants immortality. You want what you create to live be it sculpture or painting or music or composition. Michelangelo said: I know the creator will go but his work survives. That is why to escape death I attempt to bind my soul to my work. That's how I feel. I give it my all. Because I want it to just live and give it all that I have." Michael Jackson has succeeded in achieving his goal!

Although the fabulously talented, creative King of Pop Michael Jackson is no longer with us, his spirit remains alive through his beautiful and unique music, inspiring and entertaining generations to come. Now Joe Vogel's incredible book Man in the Music: The Creative Life and Work of Michael Jackson gives us a clear inside view of Jackson's creativity, focus and spirit as he describes the making of each song starting with Jackson's Off The Wall album. Vogel even covers unreleased songs in order to show the full range of Jackson's artistry. Jackson was multi-talented and THE artist that changed the world of music videos forever with his innovative approach. He inspired the world of dance with his sheer magical gravity-defying moves. Joe weaves these elements into the stories about each song, as they are inseparable elements.

This book is unlike most other books you will read about Michael Jackson. It is not a tabloid-style unauthorized biography that tries to generate sales by sullying and distorting the life of Michael Jackson. While covering all important points in Jackson's personal life, the book focuses on the Man and his Music, pure and simple, and shows us the true nature of this creative genius.
Vogel states, "As an artist, then, Jackson's work was about liberation. He wanted to free what was bound; transform what was petrified, and awaken what was dormant. He wanted to break through any obstacle that constrained the imagination, any chains-psychological, social or political-that imprisoned the body or mind. This is what art meant to him personally, and it was his intended effect on his audience as well." Read in Vogel's book about "They Don't Care about Us", "Scream", "Earth Song", "Black or White", "We've Had Enough" and other songs in which this liberation theme is evident.

What was so unique about Jackson was that, as Vogel states, "The standard for Michael Jackson, of course, has always been himself". While other artists were busy chasing the achievements of Elvis, the Beatles and Frank Sinatra, Jackson had broken all album-selling records at an early age with Thriller, and this would be the album he would have to attempt to surpass throughout his life!

You can read Joe's blogs about music on the Huffington Post to get a taste of his wonderful style of writing and his expansive knowledge of the music world. I'm sure that you will be inspired, as I have been, to read and enjoy Man in the Music. Vogel's book is well-written, thoroughly researched and a must read for Michael Jackson fans and all music fans. ENJOY!

5つ星のうち 5.0 The Definitive Michael Jackson Book 2011/12/9
投稿者 Chicago Moe - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
When dealing with Michael Jackson, most biographers tend to focus on his decline more than his triumphs. The tabloid rumors, his face, the abuse accusations, all of this is fair game while his true artistry, the genius that took him so high before his long fall, is pushed to the sidelines. Which is why we (not only die-hard Jackson fans but our culture in general) needed this book. Joseph Vogel's book puts the spotlight on Michael the visionary and Michael the tunesmith. Through his interviews and exhaustive research, he has given us a portrait of a man who demanded excellence from everyone around him, but only because he expected perfection from himself. An intensely hard worker, restlessly creative, and constantly applying what he learned about himself and the world to his work, Michael Jackson is finally shown for what he was: one of the great artists of the 20th century; of any century, as a matter of fact.

But this focus on his work is deceptive. In discussing his albums, their inception, and each song individually, Vogel sometimes calls upon Jackson's personal life to provide a context. His upbringing, his difficult relationship with his father, his marriages, children, the acquisition of Neverland, even the oft-repeated tabloid stories regarding his eccentricities and his face are all explored here. And yes, the child molestation charges are also talked about. But Vogel discusses these things in a thoughtful and respectful manner, never forgetting that the point of the book is the music. Yet the intelligent application of information regarding Michael the Man (apart from Michael the Artist) makes this the best biography of the singer on the market. That the writing itself is sharp and reader-friendly only adds to the book's appeal.

Buy this. If you're a Michael enthusiast, a curious casual fan, or even a fan of pop culture in general, this book will not disappoint you. At about 250 pages, it's long enough to provide rich and comprehensive analyses on all of Michael's solo albums, while still leaving you wanting more after it's all over. A lot like Michael Jackson's albums, actually.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Journey Undertaken 2011/11/3
投稿者 editor - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
Man in the Music is a moving and articulate embrace of the music, and the man within it, Michael Jackson. It takes us inside Michael's creative works and gives us another rare insight into his mind and soul. To say that Joe found his own personal connection to the artist and his music, to me, is an understatement, because it is clear in every chapter--Joe has forged his own path for us to reach that same level on which he met Michael, through artistic expression and truthful interpretation. In a sense, the book is a journey undertaken by the author in order to provide us passage to a place only before, visited by him.

Indeed, Joe has created a gateway--he has opened the door to inspiration through well-defined expression, bringing us to that same perception of Michael and his artistry that Joe himself gained in the writing of his book.
