"Man in the Music" meticulously tracks Jackson's solo career, from 1979's groundbreaking "Off the Wall" to 2001's "Invincible", to a glimpse into some of his yet-to-be-released material. With each album, Vogel places the music in its social and historical context, discusses its relation to Jackson's personal life, reveals the singer's fascinating process of artistic creation and analyses each record, from its cover, to its songs, to its aesthetic impact and cultural legacy. Rather than focusing on the surface-level sensationalism, "Man in the Music" explores and offers insight into the creative process behind Michael Jackson's work, which serious Michael Jackson fans are sure to be looking for.
