Product Description

Product Description

The eighth, and the second best-selling, album from the late American singer-songwriter and musician which reached #1 on the Billboard 200. The album features the singles 'Black Or White', 'Remember the Time', 'In the Closet', 'Jam', 'Who Is It', 'Heal the World', 'Give in to Me', 'Will You Be There' and 'Gone Too Soon'.


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 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 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 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 Dangerous - LP 28 Dec 2010
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 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 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 An Album of 2 Halves, both of them Fantastic! 9 July 2009
Format:Audio CD
It took me a while to appreciate this album when i first heard it. Firstly, its not his most well known album (like thriller or bad) and to be honest the only song i knew before i listened to the album in full was Black Or White. Secondly, it sounds so different to any of his work with quincy jones (off the wall, thriller and bad) the first half of the album was a big shift in style for Jackson and this did put me off after the first listen as it wasnt in my 'jackson comfort zone' of pop tunes.

It was also strange to listen to half an album which was 'new jack swing' and then go to ballads and slower numbers, to be honest, it doesnt really gel as a collection of songs like his previous work did.

However, once i began to listen to the songs indiviually and not back to back, it became clear that this ablum has some fantastic tracks. The well known ones (Black or white, Remember the time, heal the world) speak for themselves but the lesser known tracks also ooze quality, namely Who is it, Will you be there and the title track 'Dangerous'.

Overall, Jackson creates more outstanding songs which were ahead of their time, even if they didnt make a tight, structered record.
