Audio CD, Extra tracks, Original recording remastered, February 12, 2008
Deluxe Casebook Edition includes DVD. The 25th anniversary edition of Michael Jackson's Thriller celebrates the groundbreaking album with eight bonus tracks, five previously unreleased. The new tracks include remixes from Kanye West, Akon, and will.i.am, as well as 'For All Time', a previously unreleased track from the Thriller sessions that has been newly mixed and mastered by Michael Jackson. As a bonus, the disc is accompanied by a DVD that features the digitally restored videos for 'Thriller', 'Beat It', and 'Billie Jean', plus the Emmy-nominated performance of 'Billie Jean' from the Motown 25 television special, which introduced the world to the "moonwalk" and launched Jackson into superstardom. 2008.
Should several of the tracks on the 25th anniversary edition of Thriller find their way onto your MP3 player, you're going to have to admit: the music holds up. "Beat It" is not about to go stale, at least not without a rumble, and neither are "Billie Jean" and "P.Y.T." Even if you put the record-hurtling hits aside, you're still left with the realization that without MJ, there might not have been a JT [Justin Timberlake], never mind a Ne-Yo (listen closely to "Human Nature" and "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'"). The bonus DVD bundled with the expanded CD includes a digitally redone version of the famous title-track video, among other clips, and it still astonishes with its choreography and attitude. As for the new tracks--Fergie inserts herself into "Beat It," Will.i.am takes on "The Girl Is Mine" and "P.Y.T.," Kanye West remixes "Billie Jean" (with characteristically subtle brilliance), Akon duets with M-Jack on "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'," and the unreleased ballad "For All Time" (from the original Thriller sessions) is shined up and tacked on--they will suck you in like it was pop music's hugest year, 1983, all over again. Start brushing up on your moonwalk now. --Tammy La Gorce

Actually, "Can't Get Outta the Rain" is an excerpt from the long-version of "You Can't Win" released in 1978. It's basically the last half of that song. You can find that version on "The Ultimate Collection".
