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

The one I bought comes in a plactic transparent sleeve with a insert that displays the lyrics on the album and with some pictures wich I imagined appeared on the original back in the 80's.
The vinyl itself displays a picture of Michael in a White jacket lying down on side A and a picture of him in a red jacket with zombies behind him on side B. I really hope you enjoy it as much as I.
Me gusta mucho esta nueva presentación de Thriller y como no tengo nada que agregar a las millones de criticas positivas acerca de este álbum les describo como es el ejemplar que compre.
Viene en un sobre transparente de plástico, en vez de cartón como generalmente sucede, y con un hoja donde aparecen las letras de las canciones y algunas fotos que supongo aparecían también en la presentación original de los años ochenta.
En el lado A aparece Michael recostado sobre su codo con una chaqueta blanca, creo que era la portada original y en el lado B aparece Michael con una chaqueta roja y un grupo de Zombies detrás de el.
Espero que disfruten esta edición de Thriller tanto como yo.
The quality is wonderful and it sounds great! The graphics on both sides for beautiful and really add a lot of value for what is a already good price. The only negative thing I can say is the clear slip cover it came in is already splitting at the seems. But since there is no graphics on it and all the graphics are just on the vinyl and the sheet of paper I plan to pick up a better quality cover for it. Still going to give it 5 stars though because the record itself is perfect.
My 3 stars is for the lack of packaging here as the album came only in a protective plastic sleeve.....this was not disclosed and if it were I would not have bought this version. Part of the reason to own this piece of history is for the Album cover which I will have to but another copy for now.
