HIStory: Past, Present, Future, Book I - Rolling StoneOn his new double album, "HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book I," his rage keeps ripping through the sweet, uplifting facade he has clung to throughout his career. He's not pretending to be normal any more. In his new songs, he is paranoid and cagey, messianic and petty, vindictive and maudlin. Comparing himself to John F. Kennedy and Jesus Christ, he's a megalomaniac who feels like a victim. Yet he remains one of the most gifted musicians alive. And somehow, with the strange synchronicity of pop culture's longtime survivors, his private distress may have put him back in touch with a public mood: there are a lot of aggrieved, belligerent people who feel just as victimized as he does.

There is a surprising amount of clarity and depth to the music for being a picture disc, which makes it all very listenable and enjoyable. This album is just incredible both as a musical achievement and as an artistic response to social and planetary injustice; beautiful and raw in its emotional honesty, he's a megalomaniac who feels like a victim, at the highest humanistic ideals.
