The first one, The Indispensable Collection, which goes for $69.99, contains all of Jackson's solo albums (Wall, Thriller, Bad, Dangerous, HIStory -- Past, Present and Future Book 1, the Blood on the Dancefloor remix compilation and Invincible), which have been mastered for iTunes, as well as the 16-track 1988 Live at Wembley collection.

If those 104 tracks aren't enough, you can try the $79.99 162-track The Ultimate Fan Extras Collection, which pulls together all the extras from previously released Jackson reissues, plus demos, rarities and alternate versions of songs.

Why You'll Need an Alternative to iTunes

Every type of media content is handled differently by iTunes: Keynote files are handled via apps file sharing, music, video and photos have to be synced, books can be dragged and dropped, etc. How many times do you have to delete everything and re-sync music because iTunes got confused about whether it had synced to that particular device before.
