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.
"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

Negatives. You are not saving much on them by ordering them within the package. You can get both the dvd and music CD individually in most HMV stores, or online. Most mj of course already own the original bad CD that comes with it. The poster is folded, and the CD's come in sleeves opposed to actually cases.
Overall: It's a good buy as an mj fan. Who doesn't like new released Michael Jackson stuff? However, if you are really looking for the concert and CD, I would buy them separately. You also get better cases this way. Happy Mj shopping :)
As for the content, the new songs are masterpieces. I have been playing them for months with no sign of getting tired. It s just hard to believe MJ had these unbelievably great songs sitting in a vault for 25 years.
As for the BAD concert DVD, it is a must see. By far, my favorite Michael Jackson concert. All live singing. Nonstop dancing. He owned that stage.
Highly recommended for fans & all music lovers

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.

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.Read more ›
