Together, they came out with astounding efforts, Off the Wall and Thriller. Moreover, many critics praised the MJ for not being the ordinary generic jukebox musical. The Washington Post mentioned, "That sordid history would not seem to have foretold a jukebox musical devoted to the upside of Jackson's genius."
As with any Michael Jackson story, MJ also gave emphasis on the struggle the pop star went through. It also gave an idea of the price he had to pay for such profound fame. Variety was quick to point this out, "The demons that Jackson battles in "MJ," his father and the media, are figured as horrifying. But if there was darkness behind the angelic falsetto, a mix of light and shadow that made Michael Jackson a unique artist, "MJ" enacts a trick, insisting it didn't belong to him. It's a renouncement worthy enough of a clever criminal."
