Los Angeles Times
Michael Jackson has a good thing in ‘Bad’It would be disappointing if this album’s creative level is where Jackson wants to stay. But if it gives him a little breathing room and clears the air for future ground breaking, great. […]

Rolling Stone
View that phenomenal album’s worth of music as the opening statement of Michael Jackson the autonomous artist. View Bad as its first fascinating successor. […]

The Edge
I could go through every track and explain why I love each one of them so much, but I feel that would be unnecessary; everyone has heard this albumand everyone knows just how brilliant it is. […]
