Featuring "Smooth Criminal" and "I Just Can't Stop Loving You!"
Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 203/500!
Bad is the seventh studio album by American singer Michael Jackson. It is his third studio album released through Epic Records. It was released on August 31, 1987, nearly five years after Jackson's previous studio album, Thriller.
"The downside to a success like Thriller is that it's nearly impossible to follow, but Michael Jackson approached Bad much the same way he approached Thriller -- take the basic formula of the predecessor, expand it slightly, and move it outward. This meant that he moved deeper into hard rock, deeper into schmaltzy adult contemporary, deeper into hard dance -- essentially taking each portion of Thriller to an extreme, while increasing the quotient of immaculate studiocraft." - Allmusic
