    I can easily understand that , at some points, it can be very annoying to see MJJ's name ALWAYS associated with the only(but AMAZING) THRILLER.

    It's normal that we find this shocking and not appropriate, but we have to remember we're fans, and for 99% of us, we know each word of each song of each album!!!

    You know, for most of articles we read, they are more or less all from tabloids(even if it's positive). These articles are written by people who don't know at all the ENTIRE MJJ music catalog. The only thing they know is THRILLER, maybe BAD....

    So, there's only in professional mag that journalist writte about something else than THRILLER...

    We are like professional on MJJ, so.. But it's also kinda sad that people don't know at all the others MJJ's album... and for me, some of his most beautiful songs are the unreleased ones... We just have to deal with it, but it's true that THRILLER IS NOT HIS ONLY MASTERPIECE!!!!!!!

    i think this is just using his old fame to jump onto a newer platform that would be massive in its own right.

    meanwhile, i'm still living in the off the wall era, and DO NOT intend to leave. lol

    for me bad is his best..and then thriller..but we have thriller 25 now thats way we talk about it is in fashion again.BAD made michael jackson the bigest star in the planet.dangerous was a good coppie of bad as an idea with really good songs in it..history was a good coppie of dangerous in more pop sounds but basiclly not somethig new...invincible was not pop at all it was a really black album actually was something differnet but not good songs in it, too many boring ballads..and too much r&b for europe to love.

    Every album is special and needs to be treated that way! Michael is a multi-talented singer composer and entertainer and his records are unique. Thriller was the milestone of his career but from the time of Off The Wall until Invincible Michael built up his legend!

    Michael in general is under rated.. Even Thriller.. Thriller just gets the most respect of all his albums..

    Default popularity

    Many singers/bands have a particular album (or song) that they are most known for and/or is talked about more than their others.

    Bad is my favorite album. Thriller is really boring to me (sorry!). My family is confused by this, lol!

    The way the media talks you'd swear that Michael has only ever had one album out with just three songs Billie Jean, Beat It and Thriller
    Considering that media belong to the commercial field of life, the ‘Thriller’ album being the best selling-album of all time unavoidably gets the most, or even the only, attention by media (when it comes to Michael Jackson's albums).

    And these three songs from that album (‘Billie Jean’, ‘Beat It’, and to a lesser extent ‘Thriller’) have become his signature songs to the point where they are immediately recognizable by almost every man on earth.

    So, there is nothing wrong or strange about the fact that this album gets such a media attention.

    Also, this does not happen only with Michael Jackson.

    For every major artist in the world, his/her most successful album tends to become a mixed blessing for the artist because it attracts the biggest attention by media to the disadvantage of the artist’s other, less successful albums.

    As I see it, that is natural.

    Ressurecting a zombie thread from 2008. Is this some clever pun on the Thriller album, lol?

    But yeah, I agree. Other albums and songs don't get enough love.

    What is really sad for me is watching the This Is It video. It was supposed to be his last big performance and I am 100% he would enjoy presenting Invincible stuff to the world. While watching the video I was like:"Waiting for Invincible stuff, waiting for Invincible stuff, waiting for...".
    But no. He just HAD to perform the same old routine. "I'm going to perform the songs my fans want me to perform." Yeah, well...you don't HAVE to, Mike. Just perform what you want...

    This isn’t just exclusive to Michael Jackson. Pretty much every artist has that one signature song/album that they are mostly known for. For example, Queen are mostly known for Bohemian Rapsody, Prince is mostly know for Purple Rain (album), Mariah Carey is mostly known for All I Want For Christmas Is You.

    Only the hardcore fans will focus on the other albums/songs. But the hardcore fans are very smaller in comparison to the general public / casual fans, who will always associate an artist with a particular song / album.

    Very true, Guns N Roses are known for the Appetite For Destruction album, Celine Dion for the Titanic classic My Heart Will Go On, Britney Spears For Hit Me Baby One More Time, and the list goes on. It's normal for the public to gravitate to when the artist/band was at their "peak". For Michael Jackson this was the Thriller album, a time when everybody loved him and were obsessed with him. Obviously people know MJ has many other great songs.
