Prepare to be thrilled?

We've had the dredged-up-from-the-archives single, 'This Is It.' We've had the cobbled-together-from-rehearsal-footage movie of the same name. Now, grieving Michael Jackson fans can look forward to a whole new album from the dead King of Pop, set to be released in November.

There's no title as yet, but the NME reports that the album is set to feature 10 songs recorded at various points through Jackson's career.

If we're honest, though, little we read about it gets us excited. Apparently the trove of unreleased songs from which the album will be selected includes tracks from a 2006 recording session Jackson did with Black Eyed Pea will.i.am, as well as collaboration with lesser modern R&B stars such as Ne-Yo and Akon.

Worse, Rodney Jerkins - who produced Jackson's last album of new material, 2001's snoozefest Invincible - is in the producer's chair.

What do you think, Jackson fans? Are we wrong to be so certain the album will be Bad? We all Remember The Time when Jackson was a force to be reckoned with - could this album be a Thrillerafter all?
