This is easily Michael's best work yet. People hype up Thriller, which wasn't bad, but it was NO Dangerous! Dangerous is his best music for a few reasons:
1) The beats and rhythms are top notch
2) The songs require more thought and aren't the cliched "i need you girl" music.
3) It's danceable
Unfortunately, the public didn't see this, and Dangerous has sold 22.1% of Thriller's sales. I hate to be technical, but it's a sad fact when 77.9% of his fans can't see his best music ever.
This album should have sold 100,000,000 it's first WEEK, and 1,000,000,000 overall worldwide. It's THAT good, at least in my opinion. It certainly makes my top 5.
Notable Songs: Jam, In The Closet, Remember The Time, Black Or White, Will You Be There.
Will You Be There, is, I think, his best song ever. I'd get the CD on the force of that track alone. But they're all good.
Dangerous is an amazing work with its own unique sound. Although there are a few songs that would only be defined as "filler", most of the tracks are masterpieces.
1) Jam- This is one of the great songs on the album, a rhythmic and uptempo tune, a great beginning to a great album. 9/10 stars.
2) Why You Wanna Trip On Me- One of my personal favorites, at least the first sixty times. It has an excellent intro and harsh whispered lyrics... and then there's the chorus, an almost-yelled melody that makes you go "He has a point." 7/10 stars.
3) In the Closet- This one is incredible, although a little disturbing to some, maybe. It's a little more sensual than his usual style, but he definetely pulls it off. 7.5/10 stars.
4) She Drives Me Wild- To me, a twin of In the Closet. Same type of theme, same type of sound- not nearly as good as its brother, but not horrible either. 6/10 stars.
5) Remember the Time- A fantasic sounding melody with a hint of Egyptian flare. This is a definite hit for this album, it will have even the staunchest nonbelievers on the floor dancing. 8/10 stars.
6) Can't Let Her Get Away- Sadly, although it has a catchy bridge, this one always seems to be forgotten amidst all the hits. 6/10 stars.
7) Heal the World- A sharp change of background, with a more ballady feel. This song is beautiful, with a message that needs to be heard today. 8/10 stars.
8) Black or White- One of the songs that will never die.Read more ›

The album starts with the fast agressive R&B/Dance "Jam" where Michael is playing basketball with Jordan in the video and teaching him some dance steps. It has always been hard for me to understand what he sais on the songs, he either whispers or he sings to quick, however it's a exellent song to dance too. "Why you Wanna Trip on me" is perhaps a sequel to "Leave me Alone" it's also about the media that won't leave him alone. "In the Closet" is one of the best songs on the album, the mystery girl appears on it and it's a intimate R&B influented song with lyrics that MTV wouldn't like. "She Drives me Wild" sound is a bit simular to "In the Closet" in the beginning, but it has samples from cars and the hook/melody aren't strong at all.Read more ›
