The only MJ album that I believe easily tops Thriller and pushed Michael even further away from R&B but more toward becoming the King of Pop. It's filled top to bottom with his catchiest, and most enjoyable tracks.

Highly challenged because of the transcendence of Thriller, Bad was MJ taking back his career, and promising quality, but handed out in his own flavor. Few songs on here have any feel to Thriller, meaning that he spent time and effort to follow up a classic with ingenuity and next-level passion.

In "Bad, Michael sounds legendary already along a tracklist full of precious moments. It's one of the most iconic albums from the 80's without doubt.

Digno sucesor de Thriller, con Bad Michael se muestra con mas fuerza y mas personal, la mayoría de canciones fueran escritas por el, lo que lo convierte como una expresión valiente de sus ideas y emociones, se involucro mas en la producción para pavimentar su legado por sus propios méritos. Bad y Man in the mirrror son canciones brillantes. La imagen madura y adulta que muestra en este trabajo es genial

Conventional wisdom has it that Michael Jackson reached his artistic peak with Off the Wall and Thriller, and Bad was the beginning of a slow and steady decline. However, this intensely creative period is much better than its reputation suggests.

Bad contains more solid pop classics than most greatest-hits compilations (“The Way You Make Me Feel,” “Man in the Mirror,” “Dirty Diana”), a deeper bench than some may remember (“Speed Demon,” ... read more

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

An impossible task is following up the massively successful Thriller. Jackson spits in the face of impossible, producing an album that was capable of still selling commercially, producing a handful of hits and still being well received by critics. The king of 80s music deserves the level of recognition he has received over the decades and this album by no means discounts this truth. Although not quite as technically proficient as Thriller, the album still largely delivers across the ... read more

It's not a reinvention of his sound, but it's a nice evolution. The instrumentals are a lot more varied, with rock, jazz and funk influences, all the while being unmistakably a pop record. Mike's delivery shows a bit more grit at times. His ad-libs are on point too!
Suffer from some fluctuations in quality regarding songwritting, bit of a up-and-downer.

GO LISTEN TO: Dirty Diana.

"Bad" is not worth "Thriller", but still it's a worthy follow-up. The pressure on Michael must have already been enormous. This could have been a catastrophe. Instead, "Bad" is clearly an inspired album and contains a few instant classics. That is absolutely not bad.
