    Bad.

    HIStory also but MJ already had lost a bit of his public at the time.

    And the next album because people wonder if he still can sing.

    So each time it's not for the same reason...

    Think it's Bad and Invincible.
    Bad was just after Thriller, while Invincible took like 7years. more anticipation thus higher expectation.

    I'm not sure if any Artist will ever face the Pressure MJ did when he was making the 'Bad' album. Thriller is an impossible album to ever match.

    Thriller was a tough act for anyone to follow, even Michael himself. Can't get higher than number 1.

    Expectations for Bad were definitely waaay too high. People weren't concentrating on the music, they just wanted to see if it could possibly outsell Thriller.

    yeah it was the bad album, following up his greatest work had to have enormous expectations for it.

    I vote Bad....
    After Thriller....everyone in the world was waiting for Mike's comeback....
    Bad is my favourite album....but I wasn't a fan at the time...I can only imagine all the expecatations from 1984 to 1987 for that album....

    Bad because came out after the huge success of the Thriller album and also because Michael was 30 at that time, he was more mature as a singer and the curiosity around him was really high.

    I voted Bad, HIStory, and Invincible. Bad came directly after the world's best selling album. I always thought of Bad as a sequel to a popular movie; it was good, but not like the original. HIStory was really hyped up, with the statues and everything. Invincible was the album that had entirely new material, something which MJ hadn't done since 1991's Dangerous. They are all still good albums, though.

    I would say BAD because it came out after the Thriller success and of course there was some pressure. But knowing Michael as a perfectionist I think that in all albums he put hard work and dedication...and he had high expectations from each...
