Two months after the death of pop icon Michael Jackson, and still fresh from a spate of memorials and celebrations to his genius, Universal Motown began releasing a series of download "suites" (remixed versions of classic MJ and Jackson 5 tunes) via iTunes, each suite revealed two weeks apart, a total of four suites in all. The complete installments appear here in album form as MICHAEL JACKSON: THE REMIX SUITES, and while the majority of the material here won't add anything to the Jackson legacy, a few surprises come by way of Salaam Remi's reggae-style excursion on "ABC" and Dimitri from Paris' Philly disco refix of "I Want You Back."
