I mean, everyone enjoys stuff like Bad and Smooth Criminal, or at least feels some form of amused nostalgia. Personally, for example, the History compilation was my first album, I used to watch Moonwalker with my friends, and we all used to play his Megadrive game. Good times.
But I just assumed that a whole album of his would just be those big singles, plus filler. I didn't even consider for a moment that that would be the case. It was just obvious; that's just how the world works. But then I decided to buy Bad on a whim, after I saw it on vinyl in Virgin or "Zavvi" or whatever.
And my god, it's just brilliant all the way through. It has absolutely no right to be, but it is. It really is.
