EDITORS’ NOTES

Bad may not have all the timeless prestige of its predecessor, Thriller, but it’s just as full of heart and purpose. Over rockier rhythms, Jackson sounds gleeful and impassioned, whether he’s making a profound humanitarian plea (“Man in the Mirror”), raging with lust (“Dirty Diana”), or narrating a suave play-by-play (“Smooth Criminal”). And when he’s slaying the dance floor, his voice is spine-tingling—his nuanced falsetto goes from subtle to ferocious in the space of a single line—once again proving that Jackson is pop's one true master of ceremony.

Were iTunes reviews always this way?

Since when were iTunes' album "reviews" based on opinions? For the longest, these reviews were basically overviews. They basically told a brief explanation or history of the album to give listeners an idea of its background. They were never really personal thoughts and opinions on the album itself, were they? If so, I don't remember that. Anyway, my point is that the review currently on this page is completely biased. It wouldn't matter if I liked the album or not - anyone can see that that review is completely biased. Instead of explaining the process/production of the album as a follow-up to Thriller, it completely bashes it and Michael Jackson's work seemingly solely based on the fact that it was the follow-up to the greatest selling album of all-time. It looks at the album as inferior to Thriller, and iTunes reviews should never do that. I'm shocked that this album was reviewed as such, because it does not give credit to everything Jackson did well whatsoever.

Mr.

The editor notes says the jackson proclaimed himself the King of Pop thats not true at all. Elizabeth Taylor said that at an award show an everyone started calling him that. You would think a company like apple would hire competent people who get the accurate information. Do the research before you broadcast things to the masses its embarrassing that your an editor. The album is classic by the way.
