Amazing! The last breath of disco and a new beginning for Michael Jackson. I could dance to this album all night.

One of them albums that makes you think that they really don't make them like they used to. Then again, no one was making dynamite records like Michael Jackson.

Micheal Jackson's most soulful album is filled with strong grooves, tight numbers and a few strange production choices.

The first few tracks are pretty stellar then it goes off into the weeds after that. I will say it is the first one on these BEA best of the year lists that really nails the 80's sound so I suppose it was ahead of it's time.

I changed my mind about this one. I gave an okay review before but now this album has really hit me. I now consider it Michael's best, or at least his most consistent, although aside from the opening track I still think there are some better songs on, Thriller, and, Bad. Still, this is a great record, the perfect soul/pop album.

Michael's best album!

Off The Wall > HIStory > Dangerous > Thriller > Bad > Invincible

Thriller is over-rated. But all of his stuff is great!
