CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic

There are the album tracks themselves, something that virtually didn't exist on Thriller but bog down Bad not just because they're bad, but because they reveal that Jackson's state of the art is not hip.

Entertainment Weekly
How to follow an untoppable blockbuster? Jackson took his time. But ultimately, he delivered — offering immediate radio jams (”Bad,” ”The Way You Make Me Feel”), stirring ballads (”Man in the Mirror,” ”I Just Can’t Stop Loving You”), and outrock experiments (”Smooth Criminal,” ”Dirty Diana”) amid a few lesser but still worthwhile album cuts.

Bad is not only product but also a cohesive anthology of its maker's perceptions.

Bad may not have been as much of a success as Thirller but it still proved that Michael was the true King of Pop. Bad is a wonderful blend of pop, R&B, and a bit of rock to spice things up. Though the titular track, Bad, has become overrated, it still is a great song. Other great tracks include Smooth Criminal, Leave Me Alone, Just Good Friends, Man in the Mirror, and my favorite track of the album, Another Part of Me. The two weakest tracks are Liberian Girl and I Just Can’t Stop ... read more
