1. Jack HickfordIn the background there is a stadium full with people, these people are the fans of Michael Jackson. This portrays the popularity of the artist. The colour red shows that the artist is a danger to the music industry and connotes energy and power, this also then links to the album name immortal. The fact that he believe he will not die, his music will always be around, and that also no matter what he will also be remembered. The text on this album cover also links to the theme, this is because it looks like the letters have been made from either stone or steel which are all strong and long lasting materials, this can link to the life of Michael Jackson and his career in music.Textual Analysis of Album Cover As you can see all these people/characters are performers. Within there are people playing guitars, singers and also dancers. On this album cover its made to look like Michael Jackson is the dominant, more powerful performer. And that with his music and the content he produces is simply so much better than what they produce.The stance that this artist is performing is the same as god when was on the cross, this also shows how important he is.
