    WHO CARES?!!!
    Thriller changed the world, Dangerous didn't.
    That's why the average Joe (y'know the non-MJ fan) can appreciate Thriller so much more. Some of you guys need to chill. At Least he's being remebered for something in a positive way. What if Michael was remembered in the media as that weird dude who only had a couple of hits?
    You think nobody's gonna celebrate an album that sold over 100 MILLION copies?!
    No other artist has even come close to accomplishing that feat. So just be glad it's Michael.
    Good lord.

    errr


    LIKE i said, Thriller deserves what it's getting. But I think fans just wished his other albums were appreciated as well.

    Honestly I don't think just THRILLER changed the world...MJ's whole spanning CAREER changed the world...and Thriller just set it into the statosphere.

    Anyways, I think Thriller deserves all it's praise but MJ has made other things (in my personal opinion BETTER things) besides that album.

    It's not that Thriller is over appreciated, it's his others being UNDER appreciated.. That makes a big difference.

    J5, I get what you and other fans are saying.
    But you have to remember that there are 6 billion people on Earth and alot of them ain't Michael Jackson fans. So why would they give two sh!ts about Blood On The Dance Floor & HIStory?
    Most celebrities (and Michael is no exception) are known for there most famous product. Yes, MJ has put out other great albums, but he's always gonna be known as the dude that made Thriller, just like Arnold Schwarzenegger will always be remembered as the Terminator, and Britney Spears will always be remembered as the girl that made Hit Me Baby One More Time.
    And that's not a bad thing. Just go with the flow.
    Clearly, Michael ain't losing no sleep over it, so why should his fans be?

    I was one of those Non fans that had HEARD thriller...but didnt become a real fan til i heard HISTORY so what does that tell you? I gave two shits...apparently.

    And I'm not losing sleep...i don't think its THAT big of a deal, its just a DISCUSSION lol. Its an observation that I happen not to like. But I'm not THAT mad about it. And i KNOW mike aint mad about it. LOL

    I'll just be nice if people recognize that MJ aint a One-Album- WOnder lol. And when people say that he hasn't made anything good since thriller...it kinda IS a bad thing because that WIPES out any and all effort...and all the AMAZING things hes done...as if the rest doesnt matter.

    But people are ALWAYS gonna say stupid stuff so i'm not that heated over it lol

    People hardly talk about Of The Wall, and to me that is the best album when it comes to singing. Perfect vocals on that album.

    Well, good for you.
    But once again, I'm talking about the non Michael Jackson fan (the media). They talk about how "great" Thriller is, and the average die-hard fan rebels and talks about how "average" Thriller is. It's been that way for a long time.
    But one thing WILL remain: Thriller is the biggest selling record ever. That's why it's still talked about 25 years later. And whenever someone say's "Michael hasn't made anything good since Thriller", obviously, they don't know what they're talkin' about.

    The media is BS. LOL They USE thriller to belittle MJ's achievements (former this and that). I'm not interested in accommodating to them.

    ANd fans DONT say Thriller is average. Only 1 in 100 fans think that. :lol: Its not about saying that THRILLER is GREAT...thats not the issue. Thriller IS great. It IS the bomb. It DESERVES all the praise. It's the GREATEST. But taht doesnt mean his other works arent great either. Thats all we're saying.

    I think you sort of lost the argument when you said "the bomb." No offense, but come on.

    I know what you mean. I was at Target yesterday, and I checked out the cds under 'Michael Jackson'; only Thriller and Number Ones was there.

    Thriller is a good album, but it's not by any means his best.

    Rest in peace, Michael. Teach the angels to moonwalk.

    don't worry. you fans outnumber the general public, and the media is fully aware that MJ is balanced as the greatest entertainer ever, and that's because of all his albums. they're just envious. just yesterday, when mentioning the passing of actors at a young age, they used the headline..'gone too soon'. and i catch the media constantly using titles of songs from ALL his albums, for a lot of catch phrases in their articles in their papers and magazines and online. they talk about him today, cus of ALL his achievments. so they're hoping they have you fooled. don't give them that leeway.

    did u ask if they have other albums there? cus..a lot of times his stuff sells out...or you have to ask for it, cus they may have it stocked in the back somewhere. hhaha..another song title there...anyway..i digress...but, they didn't have the box set up front in a bestbuy i went to..and i asked for it, and they told me there were none in stock, and to come back the next week, and i did, and they went to the back to get if for me.

    Michael was great BT (before Thriller) and was great AT (after Thriller).

    Look at what he accomplish BEFORE Thriller with and without the Jackson 5/Jacksons:
    Was the leading voice behind four consecutive number-one singles
    Performed at the Apollo and Ed Sullivan
    Had a number-one solo hit that got an Oscar nomination though he wasn't the song's writer
    Brought "The Robot" to national prominence BEFORE "The Moonwalk"
    He and his brothers becoming the first black band to perform in Australia
    Had a good five top 40 singles while IN Motown
    Co-wrote one of the greatest dance-pop songs ever with "Shake Your Body"
    Had the single glove on before it became COMMONPLACE (check "Destiny"/"Triumph" area
    "Off the Wall", he became the FIRST artist to have FOUR top ten singles off one album breaking the standard of three set by Elvis Presley, the Beatles, the Supremes, Mary Wells and Marvin Gaye

    Now after "Thriller":
    "BAD" tour became one of the most successful world tours of the 1980s
    "BAD" had FIVE number-ones instead of two from "Thriller"
    He was the only artist to pull off video debuts on ABC, CBS, NBC AND FOX! No one has really done that EXCEPT HIM.
    Perform at the Super Bowl
    Having HIStory being nominated for an Album of the Year Grammy

    I'm sure there's more, lol.

    What made "Thriller" special was that was really the ONLY album that put it all together combined. That's why it's talked about a lot, least that's what I'm presuming.

But when people make up stories that I don't wanna be what I am, it hurts me. It's a problem for me, okay? I can't control it. But let's reverse it. What about all the millions of people who sit out in the sun to become other than what they are?" -- Michael Jackson (1993)
