The Thrilla In Vanilla

::Honorable Mention

To deprive "Thriller" from any top 25 album discussion because of Jacko's recent "insanity," would be like keeping Pete Rose out of the hall of frame for betting on baseball. Although it didn't quite make my top 25, no one can deny that it was a groundbreaking album. If you can listen to the whole thing without moving any part of your body,... you're a corpse... nay, unamerican.

Tracks of Note:
Billie Jean, Beat It, Thriller

Best When Played:
When no one is watching.

That doggone girl is mine, Michael. Serioulsy, I concur: Thirller is far and away Jackson's best record. A little Quincy Jones production and smooth bass licks make it a party fav.
