이것이 황제의 작품이다, 그의 좀비댄스는 영원할 것이다
 (95/100)
팝의 황제, 마이클 잭슨의 여섯 번째 앨범. 역사상 가장 많은 판매고를 올린 음반으로, 6,500만장 이상 팔린것으로 집계되고 있다. 발매된 7장의 싱글 모두 빌보드 싱글차트 10위권에 진입하였으며, 2곡이 정상을 밟았다. 그래미 12개 부문에 노미네이트되고 8개 부문을 수상했다. 가장 위대한 팝 음반.

You had me at 'Baby Be Mine'. You complete me at 'Human Nature'.

마이클 잭슨 하면 이거 아닌가
 (100/100)
무슨 말이 더 필요하겠습니까?
 (90/100)
경이적인 판매고에는 이유가 있는 법. Beat It~!
