Self-explanatory title. Also, I deliberately excluded some people for the sake of keeping the poll relatively short. Obviously, I couldn't include everyone, so feel free to mention others you're a fan of. Anyways, here are my thoughts: Björk - Despite only having 9 studio albums, her discography is extremely intimidating due to its experimental nature. I don't know if I possess the brain power to fully get into Björk, though I adore Debut, and I've been slowly getting into her discography one album at a time. Vulnicura is fascinating, though it sounds like something that might send a more fragile person over the edge - it's extremely depressing. Celine Dion - no opinion, though hearing the news about her health issues was devastating. Wishing her all the best. Cher - no opinion. Cyndi Lauper - love her. While her discography might not be as consistent as Madonna's, I enjoy most of her songs despite the many covers. Also, her energy is just so infectious, and Carly Rae Jepsen really reminds me of Cyndi in terms of being a bundle of wholesome, positive energy. David Bowie - maybe my idea of Bowie is too shallow, but I'm not really into rock music except for a select few artists/albums. Dolly Parton - I'm curious about her discography, but she has so many albums, and a lot of them are full of covers and/or rehashed songs from older records, which is a turn-off. Elton John - no opinion. Janet Jackson - a legend whose impact and legacy are seriously underappreciated. A lot of people (including past me) don't realize/remember how huge she actually was. I've been meaning to get into her discography, but the only album I've listened to so far is Control. I didn't like it as much as I thought I would, but I'm certain Janet. and The Velvet Rope are going to wow me. Kylie Minogue - she's not the most seasoned songwriter, but there are a couple of albums she flexed her songwriting skills on. Those are the albums I'm most interested in, and they're definitely solid. She's also the definition of a class act. Madonna - I mean, she's my favorite artist of all time for a reason. Mariah Carey - I haven't listened to all of her albums, but I'm in the process of doing so. Some of them are kinda samey, but the ones that I do love... Oh, boy, they're so good! Caution and Mariah Carey are my favorites. Michael Jackson - still not sure how to feel about Michael. Prince - I listened to Controversy a few hours ago and quite enjoyed it. I'm excited to delve further into his discography, though it's overwhelmingly extensive and lowkey pretentious. I thought Madonna was pretentious, but Prince was on another level. Whitney Houston - her lack of songwriting credits has kept me from getting into her music. The same applies to Cher and Celine, I guess. 2Pac - I just listened to Me Against the World and absolutely loved the lyricism and laid-back vibe. Super excited to get into the rest of his discography, though I'm definitely avoiding his posthumous albums like the plague (except for Makaveli since it was finished before his death).
On this day, October 30th 2001, Michael Jackson released his final studio album - ‘Invincible’. I’m having trouble wrapping my head around it being 20 whole years since we heard original material from the King of Pop (if you discount those god-awful posthumous money grabs). Invincible was Michael’s most critique work, however it spawned 3 singles including ‘You Rock my World’ with its blockbuster music video starring Marlon Brando and Chris Tucker, and has sold 8 million copies worldwide.
