Bad is that sort of album that doesn't need any review. Everybody knows it's quite an experience, simply because almost EVERY track on the album has become a hit single.

It is the inevitable sequel to his 1982 monster hit album "Thriller", and while it didn't outsell "Thriller" in any way, it still sold a lot.

So how is "Bad" as an album? It works pretty well actually, and has a more synth-laden sound than its predecessor. Michael throws away his disco influences for a more futuristic take on the pop genre, and I think this makes the album stand more on its own rather than seeming as a direct sequel to "Thriller". It has a few great ballads, and unforgetable hits such as "Smooth Criminal", "Bad", "The Way You Make Me Feel" and "Leave Me Alone".

"Bad" never falls on its ass, never loses its energy, and it flows greatly. In a lot of ways "Bad" is just as much pop perfection as "Thriller", but I feel at this time Michael started losing his soul and became more and more a machine (quite literally in the "Moonwalker" film he released soon after). But it's hard to say anything bad about "Bad", it's probably one of the best pop albums ever made by any artist.
