    Default Thriller isn't his only album you know

    Who else get's sick of the media always going on about Thriller? Yeah it's a fantastic album and i understand at this moment in time it is gonna be talked about alot because of Thriller 25 but i wish that the media would mention some of Michael's other achievments like BAD, Dangerous and HIStory

    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

    Well, Thriller was his most successful album and if you were going to mention just one album that MJ made, it would have to be Thriller fo sho.

    I completely understand you and I completely agree with you, some people think that he has only made one good album and that was Thriller, but Michael have been a artist for so many years, he have made good ones in his life, the album that is least talked about is Dangerous and that's a shame because that truly showed his side of music and the fact he could work around with different elements not just base notes but classical music as well.

    And I think Blood on the dancefloor should have got better reviews (even though it was a remix album) than it got. But I understand what you mean

    I fully agree, Dangerous is much better. But it is the world's biggest seller.

    And, lets face it - it's not as if Michael or Sony ever stop going on about it either!

    Thriller !!

    I never tire of hearing it's accolades Granted, I am a product of the 80's. Maybe I appreciate it that much more because of that fact. Thriller was popular at a time in my life when I did not even call myself a Michael Jackson Fan. At the time however, EVERYONE loved Michael Jackson. You could tune into a Country Station and hear Billie Jean, Hard Rock stations had no problem playing Beat it, college radio played Thriller tracks. The experience of 'Thriller' brings back many happy memories.

    True, Michael has made lots of Good records, they were all best-sellers but Thriller was dominant. Thriller sold more records than any of his records and records in history, he's quoted in PHV: " I can't even beat my own record" lol it shows to me that this album was meant to be the "ground breaker" even if some disagree. Almost every song minus 1, was a hit. So I'm not gonna knock down the fact that the media consistently talks about "Thriller" as long as it's positive, it's all good to me.

    I agree. I think Dangerous is his best album personally. But hey, no harm in celebrating the biggest selling album of all time which happened to be Thriller lol

    Thriller is a masterpeas no mather what!....it has musical layers that you hardly find on any other pop albums, but to me dangerus is his best album. but that personal. the feel to it apeals more to me. and it seems more sophisticated. I never liked History as a compleat album, but it hase some really grate songs!
