Best Michael Jackson Albums

The Top Ten
1 Thriller Thriller Product Image

Thriller is one of the best sounding albums I've ever heard. You can tell how hard Quincy and Michael worked on this through the power of 9 great songs. I feel that "Bad" and "Off The Wall" are a tied 2nd place but this album is timeless despite having a very 80s vibe. Favourite tracks: Baby Be Mine, Billie Jean and PYT

Michael Jackson will be forever the best singer ever. No one can can close to this man, he is supreme in all his talents... The best ever of any singer, His Albums are forever the tops in this world... Michael Jackson the ONE and ONLY...

The albums I have are
Thriller, Bad, Dangerous, History, Invincible, Immortal, Michael, Xscape, Number Ones, Off the Wall, Blood on the Dance Floor, The Essential Michael Jackson and This is It. This one is my third

I do agree that all Michael jacksons albums are pure genius but...

1. Thriller (sold 65-110 millian)
2. Bad (sold 30-45 millian)
3. Dangerous (sold 32 millian)
4. Of the wall (sold 20 millian)
5. History, past, present, and future book I (sold 20 millian)

So you can see all mjs songs are amazing and obisouly sold well but thriller is the champ and should be number one.

2 Bad Bad Product Image

Bad was the follow up of thriller and was very under appreciated. It should have sold more and received much more recognition than it did. It is still to this very day his best work vocally and his best production because it came from his heart at the height of his career when he was an extreme perfectionist. when there was no one to top big himself so you knw that the emotions and the effort put into this album was like he had never done it before. Songs like the way you make make me feel, dirty Diana, and man in the mirror are still the most influential songs to date. Everything that is being made now in the pop and rock music industry is a seed of the bad album. We all have to agree that he was BAD! And he was the man at that point in his life!

In truth, MJ's Triller was a great album and did have some of the greatest songs of the 80's but it's success was mainly on behalf of Beat It and Billie Jean and Thriller's amazing film clip. Yet Bad all round had a better quality of music, not to mention 5 number singles. This album is unfortunately over shadowed by the hyped Thriller and personally I prefer the film clip of Smooth Criminal to Thriller. R.I.P MJ.

This is best album of all time, 5 top-1 hits + Smooth Criminal, which claimed only 7, but later became most popular song from album.
Smooth Criminal, Man in the Mirror, Dirty Diana, The Way You Make Me Feel, Bad, Leave Me Alone - these songs make this album the best of the best of the best forever.

Bad should be Michaels number 1 album. He made a entire movie about the album, has awesome songs such as Bad, Leave Me Alone, The Way You Make Me feel, Smooth Criminal, Man In The Mirror and others. Just an amazing album. Love you Michael

3 Dangerous Dangerous Product Image

My vote was between History and Dangerous, but I had to go with Dangerous. BEST ALBUM EVER. First of all, it has some of his best songs. Jam, Remember the Time, Heal The World, Black Or White, Who is it, Give into me, Keep the faith, Dangerous and my favourite song EVER, Will you be there. And it has a good range of style of music. You have songs like Give into me, a rock song featuring slash, and Keep the faith, one of the saddest songs ever. So this is my ranking

1) Dangerous
2) History
History has Earth Song, Scream, and Stranger in Moscow and You are not alone. Enough Said.
3) Bad
Bad is very close to the second spot. You know how some people give themselves a "theme song" well if I had one it would Leave Me Alone, and not just because of the title.
4) Invincible
Amazing.
5) Thriller
I don't need to explain thriller. Fantastic.
6) Xscape
I mostly like the originals but some of the remixes like A Place with no name and Slave to the rhythm are ...more

I really love this album and history too! And it was very hard to choose one but my choise is DANGEROUS because it's a great album with great songs and videos / Black Or White - Jam - Heal the world- Remember the Time and many others... and my favourite track from this album is WHO IS IT waaw! One of my favourite song of Michael! Really a great album the Best of the 90's

The perfection. The first 3 were top but this was really HIS project (not Quincy) and you can feel it through the lyrics, it's more personal and deep. All the songs are great, switches between down and uptempos are perfectly managed.

This album is the most complete album ever made. It has everything. Pop, Rock, Gospel, R&B, New Jack Swing, Hip Hop. Best album ever made, hands down. Should be the best selling album of all time.

4 Off the Wall Off the Wall Product Image

It's musically the best one. Not as commercial as Thriller or Bad, Off the wall presents jazzy, excellent masterpieces, especially Don't stop til you get Enough.

I'm assuming not too many hardcore fans are here or OTW would at least be 2, Thriller being the only album possibly surpassing it. OTW, like Thriller, had no filler and was a consistently great album. Which cannot be said for Dangerous, Bad, HIStory, or Invincible. The other albums had great moments and singles, but OTW and Thriller are about as perfect albums as you can get.

Better than HIStory, Invincible and arguably, Dangerous. On par with BAD and Thriller. This album deserves more recognition as the rest of Michael's career depended on the critical and commercial success of this album.

This is Michaels best album, even though Thriller has more hit songs that does not necessary means the songs are better, is just that thriller songs are more pop and comercial songs, but as far as the music goes Off The Wall is a better album.

5 HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book I HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book I Product Image

I own these Michael Jackson albums
History, Bad, Thriller, Xscape, Michael, Off the wall, Dangerous, Invincible, Blood on the dance floor, Number ones, this is it, immortal and the essential.
I have got to say history is my favourite. Includes my favourite MJ song History and also This Time Around They Don't care about us and 2 Bad.

I'm not sure which is my favourite album of his, but this has the most of my favourite MJ songs. It's got Scream (contains MJ saying the f word! ), They Don't Care About Us, Stranger In Moscow (best song! ), Earth Song, You Are Not Alone, Childhood, 2 Bad, Little Susie/Pie Jesu, and Smile! I love this album.

The album in itself is just great. People love the songs because they have rhythm and the lyrics go with the beat, it's crazy how someone could make people feel so strong about a song or album.

Thriller is overrated. The controversies, molestation allegations and media slander affected his later albums' sales! History And dangerous albums are the pinnacle of his genius!

6 Invincible Invincible Product Image

Even though this album is thought as a how you say 'flop'. It would really speak to every single Michael Jackson fan not because it is Michael Jackson but because it has a meaning that this figure; Michael Jackson, has been brutally 'slammed' and 'murdered' by the media and the paparazzi in general and saying he will stop at nothing 'cause he is unbreakable to being vincible and he is invincible and he will rock your world. You can keep arguing until it is the break of dawn but he will not stop and he is speechless and will not stop at whatever happens ever.
NO JOKE!
Live on the almighty king

This is a great album... Speechless, don't walk away, you rock my world, privacy, heaven can wait, heartbreaker, the lost children and the others. The only song I don't like is the 2000watts...

A great album. I love all the songs so much. Michales voice was awesome and beautiful. Speechless is on this album and that song alone is a treasure. I am speechless with this album

It is different from other works of mike! Deep voice and a genius made it perfect! I do think that its way better than Thriller.!

7 Blood on the Dance Floor Blood on the Dance Floor Product Image

BOTDF is an venture to the industrial type of sound that proved to be great. All new songs are really "something new", new sound, new production... In mine opinion,Michael had to release an album with all new songs made in this style. Album was inspired by Nine inch Nails sound, MJ liked it a lot, esspecialy "Downward spiral" album.

It has very beautiful songs as Demerol, Ghosts, Blood on the Dance Floor,... is the only album unpublished missing to complete the list of albums by Michael Jackson.

I love Michael Jackson B.O.T.D.F song ghosts, morphine, superfly sister & blood on the dance dance floor and it is good of its music.

An awesome album...love it!

No way no way this album is no.18 it contains a duet with Justin timberlake and its songs should be one off the best he ever composed this album should at least be in the top 7

This album is excellent. Deluxe version shows The original songs & the reworked songs. I really like how they did that. I like both versions of all the songs. My fave song on the whole album is a tie between Xscape & Blue Gangsta. His vocals are absolutely amazing in these songs. If u don't have this album u need to purchase it asap!
