Michael Jackson - Bad
Jul 25, 2017

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,” “Liberian Girl,” “Another Part of Me”), and trailblazing visuals that expand upon Jackson’s legacy as the first genuine superstar of the video age (“Bad,” “Smooth Criminal,” “Leave Me Alone”).

Comparisons with Off the Wall and Thriller are unimportant, except for this one: Bad is a pure pop masterpiece that stands parallel with -- and, at times, eclipses -- its classic predecessors.
