2 Bad Bad

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!

this and thriller are the best! it has more energy than thriller and is not tiring and long running like dangerous or HIstory, I like his look here and he has a new dance moves. Thriller is awesome too but I'll go with bad!

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.

Grape Juice!

3 Dangerous Dangerous

I really really really love all of Michael Jackson albums but I really like dangerous because I loved the whole rock pop ting he did. mj is a musical genius. same thing with bad with the whole rock pop thing
- mjj4ever

Black or White, Remember the Time, In the Closet, Who Is It, what a great album it was! Greatest album of the 90's along with Nevermind by Nirvana!

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.

I really love all of MJ's songs and albums (as seen by my username) and I am a big fan, but I think my favorite would have to be dangerous. - MichaelJacksonisawesome

4 HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book I HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book I

A compilation of Michael Jackson's greatest songs, it deserves its current place - roblist

Amazing dead set album! Has all his best hits plus They don't Care About US!

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.

Good album. Favorite tracks are Scream, Stranger in Moscow, You Are Not Alone, and the best, Earth Song. My biggest problem with this album is that the message of "THE MEDIA SUCKS DON'T BELIEVE THE TABLOIDS", while true, and I understand MJ wanting to push this message, it just leaves me rolling my eyes and shouting "YES MICHAEL WE GET IT YOU'RE PISSED". The message works best when it's either not shoved in your face, or not at all(which is why Earth Song is my favorite).

6 Off the Wall Off the Wall

This one is the best because it spelled the beginning of Michael's solo career and when you heard it you knew you were indeed listening to an artist that was a cut above the rest. Pure genious! - shaaronie

amazing album from the 70s and was a major breakthrough for MJ has the hits don't stop till you get enough, rock with you, she's out of my life and off the wall. - idolangelx13

Why Off the Wall is so low? It should have been way higher.

Amazing album should be a lot higher on the list!

7 Blood on the Dance Floor Blood on the Dance Floor

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.

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.

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.

Awesome album of unreleased Michael tunes and Akon and 50 Cent and Lenny Kravitz are on it its awesome but on one of the songs it doesn't sound like Michael singing and his mom said that too also on the album cover if you look at MJs lips it says ALIVE
