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
