Album Review

Despite its heavy promotion, HIStory was a considerable sales disappointment, largely because it buried an album of new material with a greatest-hits collection, causing the former to be overlooked. Although the new album was unfocused, it had its moments, which may be why Michael Jackson refused to let HIStory die. He remixed eight of its songs for Blood on the Dance Floor: History in the Mix, and then added another five new songs. This time, however, it wasn't such a loss, since all the songs on Blood on the Dance Floor are of a piece. The title track, a reworking of "Jam" and "Scream," is indicative of the rest of the album.
