    Pretty much agree with the poll results so far:

    1-BAD

    After the huge historic success of "Thriller"... we just have too high expectations for Bad and that was not that good for the album at that moment though...

    Then:

    2-Invincible

    After all "Invincible" had huge expectations too but for different reasons than Bad.

    I would say Dangerous. After the giant public "break through" with Thriller with it's great songs and videos, and then the enormous success with all the number one singles from BAD and the knock out tour, the expectations for Dangerous was sky high.

    I don't remember, had Thriller already broken the world record in sales by the time of the release of BAD?

    Bad because it came after Thriller.

    And Invincible because it was first album of 2000s by Michael and first album since HIStory (BOTDF doesn't count).

    Bad, since it came right after the best selling album in history.

    Naturally the album after Thriller would have had the highest expectation!

    Invincible as this was his first studio album in 6 years and imo the album didn't disappoint although some people might say otherwise

    I'm pretty sure it must have been Bad, followed by Dangerous.

    I went with the crowd on this one as I do remember how I look forward to this album BAD. I had discovered Michael with "Thriller" and of course the next album was truly 'craved' for and I just played that record 24/7. It drove my folks crazy lol

    Each album release had very high expectations however I feel like ‘Bad’ was the one that had the highest expectations since it was released after ‘Thriller’.

    Bad. Michael was the biggest artist and most famous person in the world, who hadn't released an album in almost 5 years. Bad had the biggest expectation no doubt

    I think it more than lived up to it myself
