It's unbelievable that an artist like Michael Jackson can make an album full of singles and top-of-the-chart songs, and find them still on the rotations of playlists 25 years later.  The hits Thriller, Billy Jean, Beat It, Wanna Be Startin Something, and I Want to Love You (P.Y.T.), can all be found on this album. Seriously one of Michael's, if not, the best...Paul McCartney can be found on the track The Girl Is Mine and throws even more stun to the theme of album. 

This album is so good that the 25th anniversary edition, which offers some remastered tracks with today's artists, cuts the album short of what it used to be.  For the most part, the original Thriller album is good enough how it is and can be left alone - no tributes, renditions, or remixes needed.

I agree, Mikes got a lot of talent... and this album demonstrates that pretty well. I love playing "Beat it" on Guitar Hero (World tour) It never gets old! :)

Everyone knows of Thriller.  It's the biggest selling album of all time.  On a worldwide scale, that is.  I love Thriller, it's a good album overall.  As much as I do like that album... enough to provide it with a five star rating, I do believe that it's a great album.  And if your sales can be propelled so high just thanks to a few songs that's better.  And that's my only real problem with the Thriller album.  The three singles made into music videos along …
