Forget Thriller (no disrespect), but this is his best LP. Songs. Performance. Other than Mike's vocals, this is nothing but a Brothers Johnson/Heatwave LP (if you check the credits) that Quincy out together. I just love it.

Say what you will about MJ later in his life, but he is in fine form here. Probably the greatest disco record ever.

I've had this album in various formats over the years (cassette and CD and iTunes download). But I cannot believe how GREAT the original vinyl pressing sounds. It is amazing!

Most of the CBS MASTERSOUND pressings were done with the incorrect EQ curve. This one is no exception...bright and thin.

This is by far my favorite solo album by MJ. It's influence cannot be overstated because that influence runs very far afield. In fact, She's Out Of My Life was covered by Donald Harrison (alto sax) & Terence Blanchard (trumpet) on their 1986 album, Nascence. Quincy Jones produced the album. That's why one sees some of the best studio musicians in the business in the credits.

Highly Recommend this Album, it has that sort of nighttime feel to it through the entire album. It’s once of the must haves on vinyl to experience. Plus you can feel better about yourself because I highly doubt our man in question did any allegation worthy stunts in this period of his life.

To me, this is MJ's best and most authentic album. it seems like his own signature and style is in it. also proper grooves to dance. 5 stars!

MJ was one of the most important performers (entertainers) during the 70's and 80's and this release is where his individual superstar really took hold in a LP. I was not a diehard fan during the time, I was a Rock and Metal collector but I believe if you love music and entertainment you have to appreciate his gift. This is a fun album from lip to edge.

I still have my original album that I bought at my local record shop. Spike Lee did a documentary on Michael Jackson that mainly focused on the making of this great album.

This is the true Michael Jackson classic album, the others may have propelled him to global superstar status but they don't come close to this.
