For those people who aren't familiar with Michael Jackson's Thriller, this is the best selling album of all time! 104 million copies sold in 25 years, thats 4.16 million albums sold every year since its release. It has also received a record 8 Grammy Awards!!
This album is a 25th anniversary edition with a special Hardback Cover. On one side it has the Original cover in Foil, and on the other side it has the new Zombie cover in foil. It also contains a booklet with exclusive photos and a special message from Michael himself.
The album itself contains all the original songs from the Thriller Album in Remastered form for improverd sound. It then contains 5 remixes by the biggest artists today including Will I Am, Akon, Fergie, and Kanye West. These remixes give an updated sound and I believe they are the best songs you hear in todays music. Will I Am effort to update two classic songs (Girl is mine and P.Y.T.) have been executed with almost perfection and they sound new and fresh, which is what the music industry need these days. Akon's take of Wanna Be Starting Something, with his vocals and refreshed beat really is good. Fergie's Beat It and Kanye West's Billie Jean are also good but these songs will always sound cool. To improve these is just an impossible task, but it does make a good change. In addition to all of this it also contains a new exclusive song from Michael himself, "For All Time", this proves he still has the magic for music.
To put the icing and cherry on top of the gorgeous cake, this album also comes with a DVD of Michael's breathtaking music videos of Beat It, Billie Jean and Thriller in their full, uncut and remastered forms. In addition to all of this, this DVD also contains the Iconic and Legendary performance of Billie Jean at Motown 25.
Overall this is a worthy Re-Release of the most successful album of all time and it is worthy of everybody's music collection. If you weren't around when Thriller was originally released, then be a part of it and get this. If you were around when Thriller was released, then this is a worthy update for your collection.
