Michael Jackson has done many good things during his career with the Jackson 5 and as a solo artist. However, this recording ranks as his upmost greatest accomplishment. There are nine songs on this record and SEVEN of them were released as singles. As someone else remarked, go find that today. And each of the songs show a different side of Michael. The Girl Is Mine is a fine duet with Paul McCartney showing that Michael can croon with the best of them. Beat It is my personal fave as the instrumentation really rocks. And how about Eddie Van Halen's awesome guitar solo. PYT(Pretty Young Thing) is a nice bouncy pop song and Lady Of My Life is a slick soulful ballad. I could go on and on about the other five songs but the key here is this record has balance, style, emotion, force, and soul and a whole lot more. This one is quite deserving of its greatest seller accomplishment although I have some other records I like more. But not too many! Anyway, its pretty essential for almost any collection so get it if you haven't, OK?
