Product Description

Product Description

MJ's 1991 blockbuster was the fastest seller of his career on the back of hits like Black or White; Remember the Time; In the Closet; Heal the World and Who Is It . This reissue enhances the original package with a 24-page booklet featuring previously unseen photos.


Michael Jackson was still going for pop hits with 1991's Dangerous, but he also front-loaded the album with six straight Teddy Riley-assisted cuts. This half-hour swoop of tense, aggressive, often angular funk was Jackson's most interesting music since Thriller, and still sounds, well, invincible on this remastered edition. After that, the record's uneven, but there's nothing embarrassing about it, either. "Gone Too Soon," a non-Jackson composition about teen AIDS casualty Ryan White, is a quiet statement (particularly played next to the choir-laden "Heal the World," "Keep the Faith," and "Will You Be There") showing that the star doesn't always have to get showy. The sprightly "Black or White" is explicitly pro-interracial romance, an angle its video didn't go near, and the urgent "Give In to Me" is almost scary. Scary good, that is. --Rickey Wright

5.0 out of 5 stars Hands Down, His Best Ever April 15 2004
By Colin
Format:Audio CD
Dangerous was released in November of 1991. Along with the controversial "Black Or White" video and the single of the same name, it was, predictably, number one, selling 350,000 in its first week. These numbers would be miniscule today for a superstar like Michael Jackson was back then. In the end, this album went 7x Platinum, on sales of 5,790,000 copies. This being said, let's get to the music.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dangerous is Fantastic!! Feb. 12 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I am 14 years old, and instead of listening to new artists like Britney Spears, I much rather prefer Michael Jackson. Take the album Dangerous for example. Most of Michael's albums have a different sound to the previous one and this one's a mix of rough songs like Jam, funky songs like In the Closet and touching ones like Heal The World.
My personal favourites on this album, though I think all the tracks he ever made are fantastic, are In The Closet, Keep The Faith, Black Or White, Dangerous, Remember The Time, Can't Let Her Get Away and She Drives Me Wild. So, if you're looking for a great mix of different tunes, check this album out, you'll wear it out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dangerously Awesome July 13 2004
Format:Audio CD
Michael Jackson somehow manages to be both one of the most overrated and underrated artists. Thriller was very overrated, relative to the quality of his other albums (HIStory, anybody?), and by the same token, albums like Dangerous are entirely ignored. This to me is a great injustice, but I won't get into that.
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dangerous! June 12 2004
Format:Audio CD
"Dangerous" was Michael jackson's 4th album as a solo artist. They say it's very diverse and i agree with that, however changing Quincy Jones for Teddy Riley changed the sound a bit. After all the scandals and media coverage on Michael's life, and especially after he "changed" skin colour, he wanted to prove he was still black. Many of the songs are R&B influented here and in the videos there were Black guest artists appearing like Kris Kros, Heavy D, Michael Jordan, Naomi Campbell, Eddie Murphy and Earvin "Magic" Johnson. This album offers you a great mix of music, apart from many R&B songs we'll also get some Pop, Rock Gospel and Dance. "Dangerous" got alot of attention when it came out, "Bad" had been selling amazing and it was now 6 years when it came out back in 1987.
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.

I found this cd to be very flat. It was lacking and it didn't have a whole lot to offer with the songs.
