* MagnumOpus: ''Music/{{Thriller}}'' is seen as one of the best albums of all time and by being the best-selling record of all time its hard to deny that status. However, many Jackson fans feel ''Music/OffTheWall'' is much better.

* CriticalDissonance: [[http://www.rollingstone.com/music/albumreviews/thriller-19830128 A few]] [[http://www.allmusic.com/album/thriller-mw0000056882 reviewers]] complained about the title track, feeling it was campy and caused MoodWhiplash compared to the rest of the album. Listeners still find it a classic, particularly due to the video it spawned.



* TheScrappy: For the album: Some people ''really'' aren't keen on "The Girl Is Mine" for some reason. [[http://zembla.cementhorizon.com/archives/001374.html For example]].

Added DiffLines:

*AndYouThoughtItWouldFail: Several executives at Creator/EpicRecords thought ''Thriller'' would bomb. Obviously, it goes without saying that the album's unprecedented success proved them wrong.

* EvenBetterSequel: Jackson's first album "Off The Wall" was already the best selling album by a black/Afro-American artist ever, but his second album, "Thriller", grew out to be the best-selling music album of all time! In terms of album sales this is certainly an improvement.

Added DiffLines:

* MutuallyFictional: Jackson watches a horror movie with his girlfriend starring two actors who look exactly like them, except for their clothes. Nobody comments on the fact that they are the same person. Even the people in the movie theatre!

* ToughActToFollow: This album was and still is the best-selling musical album in history. How could anyone surpass it in commercial terms? Even Jackson himself couldn't.

* SecondVerseCurse: The bridge does not appear at all in the music video, largely because there's no way to make the lyric fit with the plot.

** Michael invokes the MST3KMantra when he and the girl leave the theater. It may be necessary to apply it to the whole video.
