Despite the success of Bad, it was hard not to view it as a bit of a letdown, since it presented a cleaner, colder, calculated version of Thriller -- something that delivered what it should on the surface, but wound up offering less in the long run.

Despite the success of Bad, it was hard not to view it as a bit of a letdown, since it presented a cleaner, colder, calculated version of Thriller -- something that delivered what it should on the surface, but wound up offering less in the long run. So, it was time for a change-up, something even a superstar as huge as Michael Jackson realized, so he left Quincy Jones behind, hired Guy mastermind Teddy Riley as the main producer, and worked with a variety of other producers, arrangers, and writers, most notably Bruce Swedien and Bill Bottrell. The end result of this is a much sharper, harder, riskier album than Bad, one that has its eyes on the street, even if its heart gets middle-class soft on "Heal the World." The shift in direction and change of collaborators has liberated Jackson, and he's written a set of songs that is considerably stronger than Bad, often approaching the consistency of Off the Wall and Thriller. If it is hardly as effervescent or joyous as either of those records, chalk it up to his suffocating stardom, which results in a set of songs without much real emotional center, either in their substance or performance. But, there's a lot to be said for professional craftsmanship at its peak, and Dangerous has plenty of that, not just on such fine singles as "In the Closet," "Remember the Time," or the blistering "Jam," but on album tracks like "Why You Wanna Trip on Me." No, it's not perfect -- it has a terrible cover, a couple of slow spots, and suffers from CD-era ailments of the early '90s, such as its overly long running time and its deadening Q Sound production, which sounds like somebody forgot to take the Surround Sound button off. Even so, Dangerous captures Jackson at a near-peak, delivering an album that would have ruled the pop charts surely and smoothly if it had arrived just a year earlier. But it didn't -- it arrived along with grunge, which changed the rules of the game nearly as much as Thriller itself. Consequently, it's the rare multi-platinum, number one album that qualifies as a nearly forgotten, underappreciated record. [In 2001, a remastered edition was released with a detailed booklet]

    Michael Jackson's best album

    After the huge success of both Thriller and Bad, Dangerous was deemed not up to Michael Jackson's usual standard.
    In my opinion this is Michael Jackson's best ever album.
    It has attitude, soul, emotion and really capture's Michael's inner qualities.
    There's such a variety of songs on here that there will always be one to fit your mood.
    Personally, I think this album has been very under-rated. An absolute essential to any music fans collection, Dangerous is pure music genius.
    Best tracks = In The Closet, Who Is It, Give In To Me, Dangerous and Keep The Faith although every track on this album deserves 5*s.

    WAY BETTER THAN BAD!!!!

    Michael has done it again. Making another teriffic album which sure to top the charts. First off, this album is way better than BAD and any other album he has done -- except THRILLER. In this album Michael really expresses himself, showing how he cares for the children of the world and stuff. This album is right next to THRILLER, a successful album. And the whole outlook of it is great!! Just the songs lyrics in general. Michael is the kind of artist who isn't afraid to take risks. Unlike Usher. Michael is the best singer that ever lived!!!!!!!

    MY FAVORITE ALBUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Dangerous is my favorite album. Not only did it come out on the same year I was born (1991), but it's just a masterpiece. In fact, my top ten favorite albums are all Michael Jackson albums. This is a masterpiece with songs like:Jam, In The Closet, Remember The Time, Heal The World, Black Or White, Who Is It, Will You Be There, Keep The Faith, and Dangerous to name a few.

    Michael Jackson's Dangerous

    One of my personal favorite's from the King of Pop. My favorite song is Will You Be There and Gone Too Soon, which is too poignant since Michael was taken too soon from his family, friends, and fans.

    THIS ALBUM IS BETTER THAN THE OTHERS !!!

    I love this album it certainly is a masterpiece , and I can honestly say that I consider this album the best , better than anyone he's ever did including Thriller . He really shows his emotions and feelings of the things that goes on in his life . Therefore on a scale of 1-10 I give this album a 10 because he really put the effort and work in what he does and he always does an excellent job and comes out as being the best.

    Michael's dangerous feelings

    In this album, it seems that michael Jackson's problems atart to arise as we can see in the lyrics.This album shows his feelings towards the press.His songs touch your heart.Every song has a translation on how he feels.I think this album is really creative the way it sounds,the album cover and also especially, the lyrics.

    A Masterpiece on its Own

    "Dangerous"is,in my true humble opinion, Michael Jackson's best work ever.No other album of his have inspired the world and the youth than this one.It is even better than Bad.Dangerous has much to offer.It also can approach the talents and effects that Thriller has done onto the world.A masterpiece on its own,an era-defining album. Michael did his best to stay at the top with a fresh,catchy and trendy sound whose inspiration would spread out with day by day listening.Dangerous deserves better acclaims than Bad,which also is a good album on its own,but which doesn't offer something new,Dangerous should be seen as the groundbreaking album of the 90s.(at least one of the).

    Affairs of the heart...

    INSPIRING love songs more BEAUTIFUL and PROVOCATIVE than those of King Solomon. Not unusual for this artist as seen in his previous works. Obvious work of a GENIUS.
