Product Description

Product Description

How do you follow-up the biggest album of all-time? That was MJ's challenge with 1987's Bad . While failing to scale the sales heights of Thriller , Bad boasted a record-breaking 5 #1 singles. This 2001 special edition adds three unreleased tracks, plus interviews with producer Quincy Jones.

Amazon.ca

"We wanted a tough album," producer Quincy Jones recalls in a bonus interview on this special edition of Bad. Though the 1987 blockbuster would appear to be Michael Jackson's most personal statement to date--9 of its 11 cuts were written solely by him--its appeal also rested more on craft than the idiosyncratic art of Thriller and Off the Wall. At the same time, most of Bad has aged well in spite of its digital brittleness and MIDI treatments of gems like Jimmy Smith's organ solo on the title track. While the third best of his first three Epic solo discs, Bad carries a lot of what people love about Jackson's music. This disc also benefits from two fine outtakes, the exciting, uptempo "Streetwalker" and the Carpenters homage "Fly Away." Either could easily have extended the record's run of hit singles. --Rickey Wright

The album Bad contains so many hits, one could think it's a greatest hits compilation! And the new Bad 25th anniversary Deluxe edition just made it even better! Some of the demos included on disc 2 are so good it's hard to comprehend why Michael didn't include them on the original album in the first place (Al Capone, Price Of Fame, Streetwalker, Fly away...) But the best part of this release has to be the Bad tour DVD. It could be summed up this way: best performance ever given by an artist. Michael's energy levels never fail to amaze me. And I can't get over how great his vocals sound while he's dancing like that. He was outta this world!

The music on this cd is great! I really like the new songs that were added. I've always heard that Mr. Jackson would record many extra songs for his albums. What really disappointed me was the low number of new songs. I also didn't understand why have all of that Quincy Jones interview on the CD. I bought the CD to hear the music, not him talking. Once you have heard it, why would you want to hear it again. It really takes away from listening to the music to have him keep interrupting the flow of things. His comments should have just been printed in the booklet. I only bought this one. I know that Mr. Jackson's other albums are being re-issued, but I doubt if I'll purchase them if they are full of Quincy comments.

Bad is the seventh studio album by American recording artist Michael Jackson (MJ). The album was released on August 31, 1987 by Epic Records, nearly five years after Jackson's previous studio album, Thriller, which went on to become the world's best-selling album. Bad itself has sold around 30 million copies worldwide, shipped 9 million units in the United States alone, and has been cited as the 11th best-selling album of all time. The album produced five Hot 100 number ones, the first album to do so. Similar to Jackson's previous music material, the album's music features elements of R&B, pop and rock.

Bad was recorded during the first half of 1987. The lyrical themes on the record relate to paranoia, romance and self-improvement. Bad is widely regarded as having cemented Jackson's status as one of the most successful artists of the 1980s, as well as enhancing his solo career and being one of the best musical projects of his career. Nine of the eleven songs on Bad were released as singles; one was a promotional single and another was released outside of the United States and Canada. Five of the singles hit number one in the United States, while a sixth charted within the top-ten, and a seventh charted within the top-twenty on the Hot 100. The single that was released outside of the United States and Canada was commercially successful, charting within the top ten and top twenty in multiple territories. Bad peaked at number one in seven countries, as well as charting within the top twenty in other territories. The only song on the album which wasn't released as a single nor had a music video for was "Just Good Friends".

Bad saw Jackson exercise even more artistic freedom than he did with his two previous Epic releases (Off the Wall and Thriller).

This album is truly amazing. The songs give different meanings and feelings. Some songs feel like you are in the city streets feeling everyword. There are romantic songs, including a number one hit duet with Siedah Garret on "I Just Can't Stop Loving You". This album is one of Michael's biggest sellers. Michael has produced several big sellers, and NO ONE has surpassed one of his records whether record sales, effort, or feeling and emotion.
Here is a reveiew for all the tracks of this amazing album:
Bad: 10/10- Amazing. You can feel it and you just want to dance.
The Way You Make Me Feel: 10/10- You can feel the streets. This album was another number one hit..so was Bad.
Speed Demon- 10/10- The voice is so amazing, and when he hits his falsetto, its breathtaking. Amazing, amazing, amazing. The video is unique as well.
Liberian Girl- 10/10- What can you say. Michael has probably the most unique, and special voice in music history. This track is truly amazing and catchy.
Just Good Friends- 9/10- I love this duet with Michael and Stevie Wonder. Its unique how they sang this song, and the whole story to it.
Another Part of Me- 10/10- This song was a number one hit on the R&B Charts

Man In The Mirror- Number one hit...amazing.10/10
I Just Can't Stop Loving You- 10/10
Dirty Diana-Number one 10/10
Smooth Criminal- 9/10
Leave Me Alone -10000/10 Awesome
Overall: 6 Number One Hits 30 Million Copies Sold, and AMAZING!

Michael Jackson's 'Bad' album sounds just as fresh now as it did in 1987. It is obvious that Jackson and his producer, Quincy Jones, decided to go in a different musical direction from it's multi-million selling predecessor, 'Thriller'. Therefore, 'Bad' is far more synthesiser-based, and evidently makes use of state-of-the-art equipment from beginning to end.
The album sets in stone Jackson's musical trademarks such as multi-layered and amplified chorus vocals, his 'aaow's and 'heehee's and punchy rhythmic arrangements. Apart from it's 3 ballads - 'Liberian Girl', 'Man In The Mirror' and 'I Just Can't Stop Loving You', this album is a pop record designed primarily for dancing. It has extremely exciting moments - from the bizzare atonal arrangement of chords which open the album to the instrumental breaks that Michael gasps and yelps over and the atmosphere conjured up in the albums best slow-groove, 'Man In The Mirror'. These kinds of things make 'Bad' an outstanding album.
During the 'Bad' years we saw Michael's most energetic and exciting dancing - in his music video's, in the film 'Moonwalker'(1988), and in his sell-out 'Bad' world tour. This is reflected in the nature of the music on this jet-propelled album.
A genius amalgamation of excellent songwriting and great production, there are a few things which detract from the quality of this album. The album's title and cover art are both rather dubious and childish. It is obvious that the entire 'Bad' concept was devised by Jackson himself, the 'Bad' video with it's nonsensical narrative being his first truly bizarre and unsettling moment. In desperation to sell more than 'Thriller', Michael tried too hard and became rather self-indulgent, effeminate and confusing.
