Armond White is one of the most creative thinkers alive. His pop culture analysis is razor sharp, unique, and defiant. He is also one of the rare critics who recognizes the meaningful connection between visuals and music. His music video deconstructions are frighteningly cutting edge. When I read his writing, I feel like I am reading my inner id: reject common wisdom, find the fearless truth of your own voice. Anyone with a creative soul will love Armond White.

—Joseph Kahn, film & music video director

Michael Jackson's "This Is It" single and Armond White on the Michael Jackson 'Renaissance.'

In yesterday's NY Post (MONDAY, October 12, 2009). NY Post music critic Dan Aquilante wrote about the new Michael Jackson single called "This Is It" (with backup vocals by The Jackson 5 or The Jacksons). At the end of the review, Dan Aquilante muses,

"If this free taste is the kind of song that Michael Jackson was working on for the 50 London concerts, you start to believe that had Jackson not died, he might may have enjoyed an artistic renaissance."
-- Dan Aquilante (NY Post Music Critic)

Well actually, there already IS a Michael Jackson renaissance going on and Critic Armond White writes about it in his new book, "KEEP MOVING: The Michael Jackson Chronicles".
