Immortal

Part remix album, part theatrical souvenir, this sequence of hits serves as the soundtrack to Cirque du Soleil’s Vegas-ready Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour. There’s as much “Earth Song” as “ABC,” but ex- Jackson sideman Greg Phillinganes and producer Kevin Antunes come up with an interpretive mix-tape that balances string sweeps with imaginatively funky treatments of beloved cuts (see the wedding-reception-friendly “Immortal Megamix”). With Jackson’s world-remaking grooves as a guide, even the gaudiest setting can be a party.

Listen To “The Jackson 5 Medley”:
