Product Description

Amazon.ca

Michael Jackson's Thriller is the bestselling album of all time, with 45 million worldwide sales powered by seven Top 10 U.S. singles and eight Grammy Awards. The 1982 album was also a success from which the pop superstar never really recovered--subsequent albums seemed to have no other goal than to beat the records set by Thriller. The highly-polished sound of Quincy Jones's production sounds almost organic compared to Jackson's more recent work, and in the same regard, Thriller was significantly slicker than its predecessor, Off the Wall. Both albums established a Jackson style that aimed for the dance floor with songs built on a state-of-the-art bed of percussion and keyboards. Elements of milestone Thriller tracks like "Billie Jean" (arguably Jackson's best-ever performance) and "Beat It" (with its hard-rock solo by guitarist Eddie Van Halen) influenced not just Jackson's records, but those of the entire dance-pop world. On the song "Thriller," Jackson indulged his taste for the juvenile and invited Vincent Price to rap in a really scary voice. With Thriller the album, Jackson created a different kind of monster--a hit album of such magnitude that it would have an irrevocable impact not just on the singer's art, but on his altogether kooky life. --John Milward

Let me state first that I have never been a big fan of Michael Jackson. And when this album was released in '82, I though that it was extremely overhyped. But I'll say that twenty or so years later, this is the single best album I have ever heard. Every song stands on its own. And the one song, Baby Be Mine, that got the least airplay in the '80s can arguably be considered one of the best two or three songs on the album. the best and worst songs on the album are not that far apart. You can't say that about too many albums. Classic is an understatement. Greatest album ever assembled.

This remastered CD has great sound quality, but the liner notes brag that it includes bonus songs -- however, they are only EXCERPTS of those songs; there is even commentary from Quincy Jones OVER the start of the them! Who wants half a song? I feel ripped off and DON'T think I will be buying his other reissues. This is a horrible lapse in judgment on Jackson's part, but then, what's new? The best thing about the extra tracks is the Vincent Price rap session, which is truly fascinating.

thriller, off the wall pt 2....
brilliant funky songs, the title track is my absolute fave MJ (& halloween) song, partly for mr price's end rap & wicked howl........
"billie jean" totally infectious, wicked beat, never really undrstood what it was about, but it was a blowaway song (& video)....
"PYT" another excellent tune, & "human nature" just beautiful.
the Michael of this time is sorely missed..........

and it's safe to say that with downloading now and the decrease of record sales in past years that it will never be equaled. By 1982 Michael Jackson was already an established artist by that point having released the successful "Off The Wall" in 1979, his first "real" solo album without his brothers and having performed for many years with his brothers as the Jackson 5 and later simply the Jacksons. Nothing could prepare him for the super stardom that would hit him with "Thriller". With this album Michael wanted to an album with no fillers and whether or not he planned it he accomplished much more than that.

There are plenty of great songs to be found here just take a look at the track listing; all great songs and nearly all of the album's songs were singles, 7 out of 9 not bad eh? "Wanna Be Startin' Sometin'" is a great opener, the title of this song says it all Michael wanted to start something big and with Thriller he did just that. "Baby be Mine" is a groovy kind of song, very good. "The Girl Is Mine" duet with Paul McCartney is a great collaboration between the two artists. The title track was a monster hit and it seems every Halloween it's all you hear, great song. "Beat It" is one of my personal favorites, a rocking track that features an Eddie Van Halen guitar solo. Then there is of course the unforgettable "Billie Jean", it's hard to believe that producer Quincy Jones initially wanted the long introduction removed. "Human Nature" is another song I really like showcasing a softer side of Michael. "P.Y.T (Pretty Young thing)" and "The Lady In My Life" are not to be forgotten, they're also great songs.

With "Thriller" Michael would not only change the music itself as he pretty much turned by himself the music video from a promotional tool to an art form as has been said.

Michael Jackson's incredibly popular "Thriller" became to my generation the Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper," just as MJ himself became our Beatles. Reviewing "Thriller" is like reviewing Elvis' best-of CD, or a Shakespeare collection. It is not easy, nor as useful, because for those who appreciate this genre, we already know it and love it. This album, if nothing else, is MJ's legacy, and is the starting point for all discussions about 80s pop music, MTV, videos and MJ's unusual career.

It has earned the world's best-selling album of all-time not because one hit, or even two, or one blockbuster career-establishing hit. It established a new era of pop rock, pushing arena rock and dance rock into a new stratosphere. For me, six songs are favorites, but the rest are still very above average.

Frankly, the interviews were interesting, but not so much that I want to listen to them over and over.

Standout Tracks
"Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'" Driving home the refrain like a machine gun, Jackson starts this album with a statement that something was starting. An affair? A great album? Or, a wave that turned Michael from a pretty good entertainer to the "King of Pop."

"The Girl Is Mine," is like receiving the torch from the previous king of pop, Paul McCartney, Michael sings a playful, flirtatious duet with Paul. The memorable line, "I'm a lover, not a fighter," has since become part of Americana.

"Thriller" Funky. Now, it sounds so familiar that I forget how unusual it was in the day. The first few ominous notes tell the listener this is no ordinary radio song. Vincent Price plays off his creepy reputation as a movie ghoul while parodying bad rap to lift this song to that place beyond.

"Beat It" Two words: music video.
