Does anyone else think Thriller wasn't Michael's best album?

    I've never liked it. If 'Billie Jean' and 'Beat It' weren't THAT good, I'd not even rate it in his top 3. In fact, fuck it - I don't. 'HiStory' has both tracks on.

    I've always felt it was a bland album. It's not terrible, it's just boring to me. Offline, which or black, I've never met anyone in my generation that felt the title track, deserved that much fucking hype or the pointlessly long, 'I wish I was a 90lb white jock out of Grease' video for it. 'Wanna be starting somethin' is equally as boring to me, though unlike Thriller, I can appreciate why people like it.


    Personally, 'Bad' is a much better album as is 'Off the Wall'.

    After really hearin the tracks on both albums, I think I like "Off the wall" better...but Thriller meant more to music because it changed things so much, and had such a maaaajor impact. Off the wall was basically the disco sound at it's finest, while Thriller was R&B, Soul, Pop, and Rock together, and appealed to all of it's crowds.

    ^I'm surprised it hasn't been sampled yet... it seemed like Puffy would've jumped all over that one... that shit still gets parties jumping... so imagine some limited skilled rapper spittin' some generic anthem over that bassline... instant money maker.

    Fuck the overexposure tilt... "Thriller" is still damn near a perfect album... and it is his best to me.

    I was thinkin about how Mike really doesn't get sampled that much...James Brown, Roger and Zapp, George Clinton, and a lot of those cats get sampled waaay more. I think one reason is because it's nearly impossible to take a Mike sample and make it even half as dope of a song, even for the current generation who samples it...and his songs are TOO BIG to where people would only think of Mike's song if somebody did re-use it.

    People always sample bits and pieces of his tracks, like the intro drums on "Rock with you" or how Kanye flipped the chorus sound from "PYT"...but you don't hear many songs really samplin or interpolating his main songs.

    ^LES flipped "Human Nature" for Nas' "It Ain't Hard to Tell"... that was dope.

    I think if somebody did "Billie Jean," they'd have to make it really special

    Damm, yeah he did that. I know that song has been flipped a few times, as well as a few more tracks like "Liberian girl" that MC Lyte and Pac (well his producers) sampled/flipped.

    The only time I ever heard somebody re-do Billie Jean was Goldie Locc from Tha Eastsidaz...he had a song called "Let's roll." We used to love it in high school, but it sounds kinda weak now because his flow was fallin off beat on it.
