Michael Jackson 25th Anniversary of Thriller

Dance & Electronic and Pop album by Michael Jackson

Simply put: The Best

Thriller is undoubtedly the best album of all time. Michael Jackson proved himself as the best individual performer to ever grace pop culture and his title of "King of Pop" was well deserved. If you have never heard this album or you don't even own it, what are you waiting for? If there is one album you must own from ANY artist it is Michael Jackson's Thriller!

From the haunting Vincent Price narration of Thriller, the Van Halen guitar riff of Beat It, and the smooth, rhythmic beat of Billie Jean, Thriller is an album that can appeal to all music lovers! the entire album has aged like fine wine, only getting better over the years and is a true gift to the world.

I highly recommend the 25th anniversary edition for the remastered versions of the original songs. I ignore the new versions where Michael is with some of today's artists, but some young folk may find that interesting, but as far as I'm concerned if you don't instantly fall in love with those original, classic songs from the King of Pop than there is something seriously wrong with you!

About this topic


WhereOff the Wallwas pretty much straight good times,Thrillerintroduced dread into Michael Jackson's solo work. By 1995'sHIStory, this element curdled into overwhelming self-regard and out-of-touchness, but here it's bracing. WhileThrilleroffers its share of cute ("The Girl Is Mine," a duet withPaul McCartneythat was the album's first single; "P.Y.T."), the most memorable cuts remain "Billie Jean," "Beat It," and "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'," all of which meld musical imagination and worried-mind lyrics.

There's also the title track, which takes a cue from Parliament's concept pieces in employing Vincent Price to warn that nonfunky forces will "terrorize y'all's neighborhood." Thriller, of course, continues to battle with the Eagles' first greatest-hits package for the title of biggest-selling U.S. long-player ever. Bonus material on this edition includes "Someone in the Dark," from Jackson's E.T. children's album, and a Quincy Jones interview in which the producer cites "My Sharona" as the inspiration for "Beat It"--and, even better, the real-life Billie Jean's claim that Michael was "the father of one of her twins." --Rickey Wright
