Overall: 8.7

Top Tracks: "The Way You Make Me Feel", "Man in the Mirror", "Smooth Criminal"

It's not Thriller, and some of it is a bit questionable, but it's still the King of Pop.

Tinha o peso de substituir o Thriller e brilhou com cinco músicas no primeiro lugar da parada de sucessos. Mais um marco para o rei!

Great follow-up to Thriller, full of great tracks, not too fond of the title track though. Speed Demon and Just Good Friends are just average.

I was chilling with my friends and “Smooth Criminal” came up. I started singing along unconsciously and my rendition gave my friends an expression as if the devil had possessed me.
So obviously, I had to give this album another listen.
While it’s still not my favorite of him, it is better than I remembered. It’s also unclear to me whether Michael is inspiring Janet with his new jack sound, or the other way around; it was probably a symbiotic relationship.
