Blood On The Dance Floor is the first remix album in Michael Jackson's career. Usually these albums are a waste of time as the remixes of songs don't normally measure up to their originals. Remixes serve a purpose for the artists as they get additional airplay in dance clubs and on dance stations and that is fine. If you are out at a club, you're there to dance and the extended versions and thumping beats that are added to songs work. The problem is, the songs get tedious when you're just listening to them. A perfect example on this album is "You Are Not Alone" which is a beautiful ballad, but in this version has a club beat. What saves this album from the rest are the five original songs. After a spotty effort with the new songs on History, the new material included here is top rate. The title track is amazing with its vivid lyrics and "Morphine" is a searing rocker that speaks of the ravagings of drug addiction. The five songs would have been better served being on an EP, but they are worth buying the whole album for.
