‘Dangerous’ von Dr. Susan Fast

 German translation Ilke, all4michael.com

Dangerous ist ein Muss für jeden Fan, Nicht-Fan oder Kritiker von Michael Jackson und auch für jeden Musikliebhaber. Dr. Susan Fast hat Michael Jacksons Album von 1991 mit Akribie auf eine Art untersucht, wie es noch nie zuvor getan wurde, und indem sie dies tut, befördert sie Jackson dahin zurück, wo er hingehört: Ins Rampenlicht als der hochtalentierte schwarze Musiker und Künstler, der er war … und gefährlich war er auch (dangerous)!
