    Thriller by the public definitely

    Invincible by the fanbase. I have a lot of love for songs on the record with that said there is a lot I would have done differently

    I don't think thriller is overrated because it's deserving of the accolades. It broke boundaries and changed the cultural landscape.

    I think off the wall is overrated by the media. It was the only one of his adult solo albums to initially receive positive reviews, and remains unblemished. I don't think it offers much lyrically, and isn't as musically diverse as it could have been.

    in the fan community, it's bad, dangerous, and history/blood.. especially history - which was a one off response to a terrible incident that never should have happened in the first place, and not the standard

    I vote for Thriller. Not because it is bad, but purely because the general public focuses on Thriller and nothing else.
    Agree! Fans shoot off to listen to other albums,and not because THRILLER isn't awesome.

    I absolutely love Off The Wall and Thriller; I think they deserve the praise they get. As for the other albums, I honestly don't like any of them. I would say the most overrated one in the general public is Bad and the most overrated one in the fanbase is Dangerous. Guess my vote goes to the latter.

    I completely agree with this comment. I think that fans have "softened" when it comes to Invincible - the fact that it ended up being Michael's last (living) studio album has made them rethink it and look at it with different eyes....you know? I think that's what has happened and now they see something in the album that they didn't see when it was first released. I think there's a place for all of Michael's albums, because they each offer something different from the Michael Jackson genre.

    Thriller is the most overrated, people only know the album for that song! Invincible is the most underrated, that album deserves more.

    I'm gonna say Thriller. it's a great album and really made Michael career get out there you can also count Off The Wall and BAD. but it's seem the most album that always talk about.

    In my opinion Off The Wall is underrated. you also count Blood On The Dance Floor and other MJ later albums. oh yeah and his early solo albums when he was still a child/preteen.

    someone said Dangerous is the best album of all time and some older fan said they were crazy and that Thriller and i also agree, will always be the best album. who's knows, as time goes by that may changes. more of the younger fans likes Michael later albums then his early albums.

    HIStory


    MJ strayed from solid dance tracks on this record. It does opens up amazingly, but the later tracks don't make a cohesive listening experience. They just aren't strong enough together. Namely, D.S., 2 Bad (Shaq sinks the song), the anachronistic Come Together, Little Susie, Childhood and Tabloid Junkie. They aren't bad songs per say, but they don't work well together as an album. You could make the same argument about Dangerous, but that album is at least more dance worthy.

    So (just for me) to make it tighter would be :
    Scream
    They Don't Care About US
    Stranger In Moscow
    This Time Around
    Earth Song
    Money
    You Are Not Alone
    History
    Smile.

    These 9 songs aren't better than Thriller. Not even close man. Y'all gotta put some respect on Thriller.

    I'm surprised that Blood On The Dance Floor has a vote. I'd say from that poll that is the most underrated album, because a lot of people skip over it thinking that it's just a remix album, but that's not the case at all. Those first 5 songs are some of his best work
