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.

While not quite up to Thriller this follow-up is still filled with gems like Dirty Diana and Smooth Criminal. Some songs however I find myself skipping over due to the excessive airplay they're received, like Man in the Mirror and the title track. I don't hold that against the album. It just shows how strong all of the singles are.

A monolithic pop funk record. Don't know if this is the best Michael Jackson record. But I would argue this is one of the best 80's records out there.

Often competes with Thriller for my favourite MJ album. I feel like this album has retrospectively received critical acclaim from the rather mixed response in 1987. It doesn't have standout tracks like "Billie Jean" or "Beat It", but it is more consistent than Thriller.

Favourite track is the hard rock/pop rock "Dirty Diana". Other highlights include the title track, "Smooth Criminal", "Leave Me Alone", "The Way You Make Me Feel" and "Man in the Mirror"

Tough album to assess. Album is riddled with some classics and ultra-familiar tunes. But it's not all great and definitely doesn't hit the same heights of Thriller.

Another great album from Michael Jackson. It's almost a compilation of greatest hits. Just Good Friends is the weakest but it still a good one.

Favorite track: Another Part Of Me
