    I'm undoubtedly going to be in the minority here, but... Off the Wall.

    I vote for Thriller. Not because it is bad, but purely because the general public focuses on Thriller and nothing else.

    I also think OTW is overrated from critiques when you compare it to Dangerous and History.

    OH YES, MY FELLOW STANS!

    'That' Dangerous album from 1991, is overrated to the max. I still love it though. Some of my favorite MJ Songs are on there.

    I agree with this sentiment one-hundred percent. However, I can definitely understand why the "general public" is still fixated on it. When you have game changing medleys like 'Thriller', 'Beat It', and 'Billie Jean' on the the highest grossing album of all time, then of course they're going to be focused it. It's a cultural phenomenon that not only changed music, but helped make Michael into a god-like superstar among the likes of John Lennon and Elvis Presley.

    Misread the poll and voted for the wrong thing and I can't change my vote. Would have picked Thriller I guess, but not really.

    Within the fanbase - Invincible
    Within the general public - Off The Wall

    I like Invincible, but I think fans really overrated it when they say it's as good as MJ's previous albums. And while Off The Wall is a great album, I don't understand how critics can label that MJ's most genius work ever, when he's made songs like Who Is It, Will You Be There, They Don't Care About Us, Is It Scary.

    Most overrated ? Thriller no doubt. Underrated ? Invincible. Brilliant album even though it's panned by most critics and MJ fans...

    How can anyone say Dangerous is overrated? Everyone outside the fan community is so Bad and Thriller focused.

    Overrated by the public and the critics alike: Thriller easily even though it's a great album.

    Overrated within the fanbase: HIStory. Some great songs such as SIM, TDCAU, Earth Song etc but also some of MJ's worst songs such as TTA, Come Together, Smile etc. No way near close enough to be MJ's best album.

    I voted for Thriller. That is definitely the most over rated MJ album there is.
