Product Description

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

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Deluxe edition Sept. 21 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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!

3.0 out of 5 stars extra stuff! Oct. 18 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Michael Jackson - BAD Special Edition CD Review June 25 2013
Format:Audio CD
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).

5.0 out of 5 stars MUST HAVE Nov. 12 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This deluxe box set is just incredible. I would go as far as to say the most beautiful & well thought box set to there. You can tell this was done with the fans in mind.

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

4.0 out of 5 stars Bad25 Nov. 3 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Positives :This product is great for mj fans. The highlights are the extra songs added to the music cd, and the dvd concert. It comes in a nice little case, and is easily stored. I love it!

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 :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Oh it's GOOD Nov. 3 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Did not own this album so I was very happy that the rest of the songs other than the hits that I have heard over the last 25 years were also good. The reading material and package is not of the same quality as Thriller 25, probably because MJ is not around to supervise the quality anymore.

I'm not talking about the songs as that is subjective, but this pressing of the album is atrocious. The level of rumble, pop, mistracking and hiss are just unacceptable. Read more
