Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Michael Jackson was still going for pop hits with 1991's Dangerous, but he also front-loaded the album with six straight Teddy Riley-assisted cuts. This half-hour swoop of tense, aggressive, often angular funk was Jackson's most interesting music since Thriller, and still sounds, well, invincible on this remastered edition. After that, the record's uneven, but there's nothing embarrassing about it, either. "Gone Too Soon", a non-Jackson composition about teen AIDS casualty Ryan White, is a quiet statement (particularly played next to the choir-laden "Heal the World", "Keep the Faith", and "Will You Be There") showing that the star doesn't always have to get showy. The sprightly "Black or White" is explicitly pro-interracial romance, an angle its video didn't go near, and the urgent "Give In to Me" is almost scary. Scary good, that is. --Rickey Wright

5.0 out of 5 stars Dangerous - Michael's Best Offering to date 5 Feb 2003
Format:Audio CD
In my opinion the tracks on this album are all good enough to be relased as singles. The fantastic title track, Dangerous, is a masterpiece. This cd also has the added bonus of having the track Will You Be There - I dare anyone to listen to the lyrics and not feel some sort of emotion. As usual Michael's vocals are spot on, and his songwriting skills are evident throughout. I personally prefer this cd to Thriller (although I feel it is unfair to compare an artist's work with their previous offerings). If you are after an album you will play again and again then this is the one for you. Michael's music is what he should be known for - his private life should remain just that: PRIVATE. Enjoy the music.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST HAVE 23 Jan 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Of all the Michael Jackson albums this was the one i knew little of. Ofcourse i knew of Black and White and Remeber the Time but the 'filler' tracks i knew nothing about. I bought it recently and let me tell you something there are NO 'FILLER' tracks on this album, every track could be a top 20 single. When was the last time someone said that about a pop album.This album has more depth than Thriller and Bad and more styles ranging from pop, hip hop, rock, gospel and funk. My personal favourites are Keep the Faith and Who is It both are some of Michael's most underrated songs. Bottom line is if you are a Michael fan or casual music fan get this and believe me you wont put it down for weeks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Funk 5 May 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
It is my favourite Michael Jackson album without a shadow of doubt. It really does take music to the next level with pure funky stuff such as Jam, In The Closet and Dangerous. And this isn't just all it has to offer. The album offers a good selection of ballads including the gospel Keep The Faith and Will You Be There. The album still sounds good even after 10 years and I would totally reccommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Michael Jackson's Dangerous 18 Oct 2009
Format:Audio CD
If anyone had asked me back in 1991 what I thought of this album I would have told them it's in the cupboard and that's where it's going to stay, I probably only played it twice all the way through until it came out of the cupboard on the 25th June 2009 and has been played on my car cd most days since then, along with Michael's other albums but if an album ever grew on me it has been this one. It's up there with Thriller and Bad without a doubt now, with such brilliant tracks as 'In the Closet' and of course 'Heal the World' to the heartbreakingly poignant 'Gone too Soon' and if it hasn't yet got a place in every fan's collection it should have. Give it lots of airplay if it doesn't inspire you the first few times, it will eventually.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dangerous - LP 28 Dec 2010
By SSP
Format:Vinyl
This album sounds a million times better on Vinyl than CD because the bass is so fantastic. You just cannot get the depth, warmth and sound quality of this album on CD, plain and simple. It has renewed my interest in buying Vinyl again.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is his White Album 27 Jun 2009
Format:Audio CD
I'm writing this after Michaels death. he died 36 hours ago.

Clearly the news and critics are all talking about his talent, but mainly just about Thriller.. Now obvioulsy Thrillers a great record etc etc.. but I've heard commentators constantly say how everything MJ did post Thriller was a backwards step.. a let down.. a commercial fall.. Thrillers supposedly his creative peak!

let me just say this is, in my opinion all wrong - this record is Michaels creative peak. With more control over the production and almost complete control over the song writing, Dangerous is for Mj what the white album is for the Beatles. No one says your not allowed to like any Beatle album more than Sgt Pepper and yet I feel almost scoffed at for saying I prefer Dangerous to Thriller.

This is 100% Michael.. This is where he REALLY began to be a singer/songwriter, really expressing his views and heart on record like never before.

You got the Perfect Pop of Black or White, the funky Jam and Dangerous + many more.. and the heartfelt Heal the World, Gone to Soon or Will you be there.. you've got the rock of Keep the faith or Give in to Me.. it's got everything!

This is pure MJ - maybe not "classic" MJ.. but creatively, its MJ's peak.

5.0 out of 5 stars Feels expensive 20 Sep 2001
Format:Audio CD
Released in late 1991. The Album has stood out since then. The event of 1991 and may be the early 90s too. 10 years and counting since, the album doesn't feel dated the way Thriller does now. This was Michael's first major album without Quincy Jones, Bruce Swedein was the producer. The songs feel terribly expensive production wise and it shows they have spent a lot of time over it. Mr Jackson, may not be the most prolific artist ever, but he sure gives good value, the album runs over 70 min's. My favourite song is 'who is it' the song encapsulates the whole album, and the video was great too. A definite 5-star effort. Thank you Michael.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of Michael Jackson's albums 24 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
You want a recommendation of this album? I bought it in 1991 and didn't buy an album by another artist for five years! I just could not stop listening to this guy!
I was too young for the Thriller era and had only a passing interest in the Bad days, but when i saw the Black or White video I was converted. I remember the next day when i went to school, everyone was talking about it. It was huge. I went back through his older albums and loved them too, but this remains my favourite.
This is the album that shows how narrow the title "King of Pop" is for Michael Jackson; Dangerous has pop, rock, soul, new jack swing, and even gospel. It can now be seen as a bridge between the pop of Bad and the more angry-sounding HIStory, and the album where MJ's vocal percussion reached new heights. The pure funk of Jam, Dangerous and Remember the Time, the depth of Who Is It, the beauty of Will You Be There and Gone Too Soon, and the rock of Give In To Me and Black or White are the highlights. But every song on this album could have been released as a single - in fact, of the fourteen tracks, nine were released! It's an album of exceptional quality, with no fillers. You need to own this album, and there's no good excuse for why you don't already!
