A Quick Tip by woopak_the_thrill

Yeah, I don't even like pop music or Michael Jackson and even I have to admit this is a great album.

Hard to argue with you there Woopak as practically every song on the Album was a top 10 on Billboard with several number 1's. Some of the videos defined the generation. Who would have thought that Vincent Price and Michael Jackson would have something in common.

I remember being in a record shop when `Thriller' arrived in the stores. Vinyl was taken for granted back then when rumors of C.D.'s with disks and lasers from Japan were filtering into our remote imaginations. I was going to buy another album. I can't even remember which one. What I do remember was seeing a poster for 'Thriller' on my way out, and thinking for the first time, by whim or intuition, of seriously buying a Michael Jackson album for the first time. Something told me I was witnessing …

Being that I was a child from the 80's I was raise up hearing and reading about this album from the books, magazines, T.V. and of course the radio. What more can be said of this album? EVERYONE knows the songs and its incredible history. Simply put, this album is a staple like bread, milk or butter. You can't be without a copy.

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
