Should several of the tracks on the 25th anniversary edition ofThrillerfind their way onto your MP3 player, you're going to have to admit: the music holds up. "Beat It" is not about to go stale, at least not without a rumble, and neither are "Billie … see full wiki
I was looking for a special book to mark my 500th review for Amazon and had settled on an excellent VINE book when I paused to watch Michael Jackson's memorial. Actress Brooke Shields moved me to tears with her tribute to her dear friend, as did Martin Luther King III and many others. But when Usher sang, his words rang with magical truth: "Like a comet..." ... "Like a rainbow..."
I remember watching THRILLER on TV with my chlldren twenty-five years ago when we were all a little younger and this fabulous talent was just "coming into his own." Wow--what a mesmerizing performance.
When MJ passed away, as a tribute I ordered this remastered version of THRILLER because it has extra tracks and I wanted to see what was included.
Who could ever forget any of the ground-breaking songs on this album? In addition to my favorites THRILLER and BILLIE JEAN, other hits are featured: "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'," "Baby Be Mine," "The Girl Is Mine," "Beat It," "Human Nature, "P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)" and "The Lady In My Life." All are brilliant examples of Michael's rare gifts for song and dance.
A bonus that will make this remastered THRLLER even more special and timely during this "grieving period" is that it contains a personal greeting penned by Michael for his fans...exclusively for this special release.
Yes, The King of Pop was "one of a kind." His awesome, angelic voice, his magical, masterful dances, his inspiring, innovative creations and his deep love for his fans is legend! His music will live forever in our hearts.
Long Live the King!
With delicious pleasure and a certain amount of pain I recommend this "biggest album of all time."
Dedicated to his beloved fans. As Michael said: "We are the world!"
