Our Review

Thriller’s late-1982 release marked the beginning of Michael Jackson’s entry into another level of fame; it also saw the end of a great five-year period of creativity that had seen him raise his solo game on the unstoppable Off the Wall and make heavy contributions to the Jacksons’ Destiny and Triumph. Stripping the weight of history from Thriller is a big job, but hearing the record as a statement in itself remains hugely rewarding. Seven of its nine original cuts were Top Ten singles, but more important is the way Jackson and producer Quincy Jones turned the singer’s obsessions into intricate, stunningly sung pop-funk. From the knowing humor of the title track to the dread of “Billie Jean” and “Beat It” and the irresistible cuteness of “P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)” and “Baby Be Mine,” Thriller finds Jackson at an artistic height. A quarter century later, it still sells. And nostalgia is far down the list of reasons why.

Customer Reviews

One of the Greatest Albums Ever and the Best Pop Album Ever. (5 stars)
I reviewed the Special Edition album and said that 7 out of the 9 songs on this album were singles. I also said that my favorites are "Thriller", "Beat It", "Billie Jean" (the song in which he performed the first moonwalk on the television special "Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever"), and "P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)". The rest of the songs are also great, and I'm not not saying that you w

A must-have (5 stars)
It's awesome that iTunes finally got THRILLER. It's one of those albums that is kind of like a status-symbol if you have the vinyl. If you're younger and just discovering Thriller, then you should know this album made Jackson a household name. Either way, Thriller is a must buy for any fan of the king of pop, Michael Jackson.

The best-selling, and yes, best, album ever made. Period. (5 stars)
Is there anyone out there with the voice, dance movies, lyrics, or sheer prescence of Michael Jackson? After listening to this album there is only one answer. No. Wanna Be Startin' Somethin' is the paranoid dance anthem of all time, with the immortal chant, "Mama-se, mama-sa, mama-cosa!" It showcases his vocal talent early on, but is an odd choice for opening song. 10/10 Baby Be Mine is perhaps the most forgotten song on the alb

Michael Jackson was unquestionably the biggest pop star of the '80s, and certainly one of the most popular recording artists of all time. In his prime, Jackson was an unstoppable juggernaut, possessed of all the tools to dominate the charts seemingly at will: an instantly identifiable voice, eye-popping dance moves, stunning musical versatility, and loads of sheer star power. His 1982 blockbuster Thriller became the biggest-selling album of all time (probably his best-known accomplishment), and he...
