I think if the album hadn't cost $30 million to make, it would've looked more successful.Bojan wrote:Michael Jackson's Invincible. Yeah, it debuted at No. 1 and it has been sold in some 5 million copies worldwide, but production was insanely expensive (over thirty million dollars) and that's why it's hard to call it a success. On contrary, having in mind that we are talking about the biggest pop star ever and the most expensive album ever, it was a massive flop. Probably the biggest flop in HIStory.
The random thing with Invincible is that I don't hear where the money went... Dangerous and HIStory both felt grandiose, they felt larger than life, they felt like Michael went all out for those albums, Invincible felt like his most no-frills album since Off The Wall, yet it cost $30 million to produce? Where did the money go exactly?
Like what exactly did they spend that kind of money on???
