Well, he certainly deserves a pat on the back for trying. If crooning about a lady with a taste for human flesh isn't Wacko Jacko enough for you, just wait 'til you see the accompanying music video. Unfortunately the track itself falls some way short of vintage MJ, let down by a slightly lacklustre chorus that recalls a number of cuts from his 2008 album, Year Of The Gentlemen. The result is a humdrum but catchy enough trance/R&B ditty that will certainly sate existing fans. And for the rest of us? Well, it ain't no 'Thriller'.
