About this album

Off the Wall is the fifth studio album by the American recording artist Michael Jackson, released August 10, 1979 on Epic Records, after Jackson’s critically well received film performance in The Wiz. While working on that project, Jackson and Quincy Jones had become friends, and Jones agreed to work with Jackson on his next studio album. Recording sessions took place between December 1978 and June 1979 at Allen Zentz Recording, Westlake Recording Studios, and Cherokee Studios in Los Angeles, California. Jackson collaborated with a number of other writers and performers such as Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder and Rod Temperton. Five singles were released from the album. Three of the singles had music videos released. Jackson wrote several of the songs himself, including the Platinum-certified lead single, “Don’t Stop ‘til You Get Enough”. It was his first solo release under Epic Records, the label he would record on until his death in 2009.

The record was a departure from Jackson’s previous work for Motown. Several critics observed that Off the Wall was crafted from funk, disco-pop, soft rock, jazz and pop ballads. Jackson received positive reviews for his vocal performance on the record. The record gained positive reviews and won the singer his first Grammy Award since the early 1970s. With Off the Wall, Jackson became the first solo artist to have four singles from the same album peak inside the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100. The album was a commercial success; to date it is certified for 8× Multi-Platinum in the US and has sold more than 20 million copies worldwide, making it one of the best selling albums of all time.

    There is something almost kinky about listening to a Michael Jackson album still in the disco era. Mostly composed with real instruments, a legendary artist at the apex of his career and with legendary procurers and writers; it sound like an evolution of the Disco genre. I have always found the apex of anything to be alluring (as it represented the maximum maturation of a genre or technology before society abandoned it for "the new"), and this is no exception. People wouldn't know just how much they had lost until they had experienced the 1980's and the novelty of cheap synthesizers wore off in the late 90's. I recognized this firsthand in the 90's by being drawn to 60's and 70's pop. Growing up in the early 90's has made me appreciate this fact all the more. At some point, talent and quality was worth less than novelty and cliche after I was born, which makes me feel sad to feel like an outsider for appreciating it in the first place, when everyone else was obsessed with 'N Sync...

    One of his best albums, arguably underappreciated by even many of his own fans.

    Pure perfection, from the beginning to the end. It’s not only the best Michael’s solo album but also the absolute no. 1 of my life. I haven’t experienced anything musically and emotionally more wonderful than this. My Bible
