Despite the selection of a few career highlights presented on the tracklisting (mostly on the first half), MJ's Off the Wall sounds a bit dated today, and definitely not as consistent as, say, Thriller.

There is a little less variability within this record as compared to the following two albums by Jackson and perhaps lacks a bit of the artists attitude that developed over Thriller. What this album does not lack is the charm that exudes from Jackson across his music and offers an interesting bit of dance-heavy funk and disco elements that follow the artist along the rest of his pop music career.

Saying that Micheal Jackson is the king of catchy party jams in 2018 is like saying the sky is blue. While at some points the funky, dance-infused pop rock gets tiring, it's still one of the greatest party albums of all time, with some tunes sticking in your head until the day you will die.

Favorite Jams: Rock With You, Workin' Day and Night, Get On The Floor

Lest Favorite: I Can't Help It
