Few albums in pop music history have the legacy of Michael Jackson's THRILLER. Not only was the 1983 landmark one of the biggest-selling albums ever, its influence touched R&B, quiet storm, rock, hip-hop, and practically every other genre in the decades that followed. The 25th ANNIVERSARY EDITION gives the world the chance to re-evaluate this classic.
For starters, the original tracks hold up marvelously. The luster hasn't worn from the pure pop gems "Billie Jean" and "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'," from the taut energy of "Beat It" and "Thriller," or the soft, intimate pulse of "Human Nature." Quincy Jones's crisp, multi-layered production seems even more masterly in hindsight. The set includes seven bonus tracks, including the previously unreleased ballad "For All Time" from the original sessions, while remixes from will i. am, Akon, Fergie, and Kanye West underscore THRILLER's influence on contemporary pop. The package also comes with a bonus DVD featuring digitally restored versions of the album's classic videos, and a 48-page color booklet complete with lyrics, rare photos and a personal greeting from Michael. The album and its colossal legacy come out no worse in the bargain.
The finest example of perfect disco pop, and a record that should be prescribed to musical snobs and manic depressives. The album is a true ambassador of what pop music can be. Jackson whoops and dances through a suite of unforgettable melodies that should be danced to with a smile on your face. Each track offers at least one musical hook, whether it is the beauty of 'Human Nature' (who can resist the 'dada dada da da da') or the 'whoo whoo' of 'Billie Jean'. It's all too good.
