What can we say? Here's the best-selling album of all time-including the Top 10s Beat It; Billie Jean; The Girl Is Mine (with Paul McCartney); Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'; Human Nature; Thriller , and P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing) -plus (CD only) unreleased songs, demos, interviews and more!
Where Off the Wall was pretty much straight good times, Thriller introduced dread into Michael Jackson's solo work. By 1995's HIStory, this element curdled into overwhelming self-regard and out-of-touchness, but here it's bracing. While Thriller offers its share of cute ("The Girl Is Mine," a duet with Paul McCartney that was the album's first single; "P.Y.T."), the most memorable cuts remain "Billie Jean," "Beat It," and "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'," all of which meld musical imagination and worried-mind lyrics.
There's also the title track, which takes a cue from Parliament's concept pieces in employing Vincent Price to warn that nonfunky forces will "terrorize y'all's neighborhood." Thriller, of course, continues to battle with the Eagles' first greatest-hits package for the title of biggest-selling U.S. long-player ever. Bonus material on this edition includes "Someone in the Dark," from Jackson's E.T. children's album, and a Quincy Jones interview in which the producer cites "My Sharona" as the inspiration for "Beat It"--and, even better, the real-life Billie Jean's claim that Michael was "the father of one of her twins." --Rickey Wright

Most may say Thriller or Bad is the best song(s) on the album. But I must say I love the song ‘Girl is Mine’ the most on this album! I can listen to it on repeat all day
Now that I am retired, nothing is going to motivate me to continue to do a little cardio like Michael Jacksons "Thriller". Yes, it is a little
pricey but, it is more than good music. It is great inspiration to get up and move, even if you do light cardio, like me.
