In this episode of #JCsMusicology, we deconstruct each song from Michael Jackson's first solo album as an adult artist - Off The Wall. Once The Jackson's gained more independence with the group work, allowing the to write and produce the vast majority of their albums going forward, Michael also began to plot his own emancipation. By staring in The Wiz and meeting up with Quincy Jones, a significant musical partnership was formed and a team was assembled. Using demos and multitrack tapes, we learn how one of the greatest albums in history was crafted.

In this episode of #JCsMusicology, we analyse the early works of Erykah Badu. Also known as Badulla Oblongata. Also known as Sara Bellum. Also known as Analogue Girl in a Digital World. As part of the holy trinity of Neo-soul albums in the late 90's, Erykah Badu realeased "Baduizm" to critical acclaim, generating four singles and two Grammy Awards. Her follow up, "Mama's Gun" would meet similar sucess with it's accolades and critical reception. Before taking a five year hiatus, her third studio album "Worldwide Underground" would be yet another progression in her artistic expression, accentuating live instrumentation and varying vocal styles.

In this episode of #JCsMusicology, we explore the enigmatic Kate Bush's work before her first hiatus. After the release of "Hounds of Love", which is often regarded as one of the greatest albums of all time, Kate Bush would continue to develop as an artist with her follow-up album, "The Sensual World". After a four year gap, "The Red Shoes" would follow. In 2011, selections from each album would be re-recorded to create "Directors Cut", a cohesive album, that stands on it's own. Only a genius like Kate Bush could so sucessfully execute such an exentric project.
