    Default Which album(s) had the highest expectation?

    What MJ album(s) would you say had the highest expectations from people? I'd say that the Bad album probably had high expecation since it was the follow up to Thriller which is the biggest selling album of all time.

    I agree with you about "Bad". Having to follow up a monster hit like "Thriller" must have been a heck of a lot of pressure for MJ at the time.

    BAD would have HAD to have the highest expectation since it was the album after the LARGEST SELLING ALBUM OF ALL TIME..

    i had to vote for bad because it had to follow up from an album like thriller, so the expectations had to be high after he just released the biggest selling album!

    After the mega succes of Thriller everyones expectations were sky high! The sky was the limit.

    No doubt. Even though the pressure was high on HIStory after the stupid allegations in 93 that was something totally different.

    Bad it would be.. for the same reason that has already posted, because it followed the biggest selling album of all time, Thriller.

    Every of his albums had high expectations because they are Michael's albums (and they were always late...). But, yeah, maybe Bad had the highest.

    Every album of his has always been highly anticipated but I agree that Bad is the most anticipated. I would even call it the most anticipated album of all time :lol: I remember reading somewhere that the night before Bad was officially released it made the top stories on all the news channels in the USA :lol:

    Three in different ways:

    BAD
    INVINCIBLE
    NEW ALBUM
    In this vague world of sorrow and frailty, only the Artist can leave an eternal footprint in the sands of time,thereby resisting the strongest of winds, and coming as near to immortality as possible.

    You made my life special...and I will forever be grateful for that. I WILL pay back to you, I swear. I love you,Michael...and I'll love you as long as I am breathing...

    [SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]

    And I'm hoping that my prayers will see
    the day that You'll come back to me...
