Final update, and INDEX of Best Albums of All Times

Best Album Of All Times – Number 12

Best Album Of All Times – Number 12: Michael Jackson – Bad

<- Back To Index

This may be the greatest artist that have ever lived, and this album is for sure one of the best albums ever. It’s really impressive to follow the making of the album in the Youtube-clip (attached later in this post). All the details, all the thoughts and Michael Jackson’s amazing touch for everything, together with Quincy Jones as a producer. An unstoppable team.

What was interesting at this time in music history, was the importance of music videos. This may be one of the albums with the most music videos produced from it.

Five of the tracks from the made it to number one in U.S.

  • I Just Can’t Stop Loving You
  • Bad
  • The Way You Make Me Feel
  • Man In The Mirror
  • Dirty Diana (don’t miss out the amazing guitar play on this one)

I will not go into details for every song in this post, since it’s so well described in the documentary. Don’t miss that one, if you haven’t seen it before.
