    Bad 25 easily. We got 6 new songs plus the Wembley 88 concert. For Thriller 25, we only got one new song which was a Dangerous era song, no concert and god awful remixes. Thriller 25 was a big disappointment and the fact that Michael was alive at that time makes it even more disappointing. I'm not the biggest fan of the estate but Bad 25 was an amazing project and I applaud them for it. Here's hoping that Thriller 35 is just as good as Bad 25.

    Thriller25 has the novelty of being supervised by Michael... and that's about it. It's actually a rather embarrassing set.

    Bad25 is far from perfect, but it offers much more.

    Bad 25. No question.

    Thriller 25 had those five horrible remixes (especially "Billie Jean 2008"), an unreleased demo which is a good song but it wasn't even recorded during the Thriller era. The bonus DVD was probably the best part, but not even that offered a lot. Just the three videos and the Motown 25 performance of "Billie Jean". No Making of Thriller, no documentary about Thriller 25. It honestly didn't even feel like a real Thriller 25th anniversary release. It felt more like an attempt to make quick money, but knowing Michael's financial situation at the time, I don't really blame him. Plus, Sony was involved. Though I think he would have been better off releasing "For All Time" as its own single, something to slowly set up his comeback.

    With Bad 25 however, you're getting SIX unreleased demos and the Wembley 7/6/88 concert on DVD (with two bonus performances: "The Way You Make Me Feel" from 7/15/88 at Wembley and "I Just Can't Stop Loving You" & "Bad" from Yokohama 1987). I do wish though they included Spike Lee's Bad 25 documentary and the DVD of Bad-era music videos that was included on the Target version of Bad 25, but it's really not a big deal. Honestly, the two remixes of "Bad" are my only problem with this release. My god, those were absolutely horrible. However, I didn't mind the "Speed Demon" remix. I actually thought it was pretty good.

    Bad25 was much better.

    I am not interested in other people performing Thriller songs with a new production that was dated withing 2 years.

    Bad 25. No contest. The demo songs are all beyond amazing, there isn't an "average" one in the bunch. The DVD was also a plus. Not a fan at all of the remixes. However, there are only three and two are of the same song, so the remixes don't overshadow the new songs by any means. In addition to the album release, we got the Bad 25 documentary around that time as well. The whole Bad 25 project is definitely one of the Estate's best projects so far. I think they really listened to the fans with this one.

    Thriller 25...oh boy. The remixes were awful and I often wonder why Michael agreed to them. The only highlight of the release was For All Time (in my opinion) and on the deluxe edition, Carousel isn't even the full song (why???). Someone in the Dark from the ET album was already previously released a few times. The BJ home demo was a nice little "gift" but it doesn't compare to getting 6 unreleased, never heard songs like we got with Bad 25.

    BAD 25 is the best project the Estate has released so far

    The two things that would have made it better would be a higher quality DVD and of course Michael being here.

    Thriller 25 was Michael testing the water for his big comeback so it wasn't terrible, it served a purpose but it wasn't the best project.
    I'm grateful for, For All Time so I can't complain

    Bad25 all day long! For all the reasons mentioned above plus the 2 booklets are superb, the pictures are amazing and the quality of the paper is top notch. They are my all time favourite MJ CD booklets.

    I prefer an unreleased concert over an album reissue with few bonus tracks and shitty remixes. so I give my vote to Bad 25 just because of Wembley

    Thriller 25 has 0 votes... - actually I'm glad to see that.

    So a great release not supervised by MJ - released after hi died CAN be better than a project MJ supervised, approved and released himself.

    That leaves hope for future releases.

    Bad25 without hesitation.

    Bad25 :
    - Wembley 1988 concert
    - good documentary
    - new songs
    - some awful remixes

    Thriller25 :
    - Awful remixes
    - some new songs (albeit "For All time" seems to be from Dangerous era more)
