This was way ahead of its time.
My mind was blown when I first saw Captain EO at Disneyland. I was already a huge MJ fan, and Captain EO was just one more way for me to get my fix. This track was (and still is) the truth.
He is often imitated but never duplicated, and there will NEVER be another like him. For all the criticism he received while alive, all anyone can do since he has passed is praise him. He changed the music industry, and the music video industry forever. He set records artists today can only dream about. He gave his life for his work, and for that we are all grateful.
Thank you MJ.
