      Love the album, but this was the start of his music losing that fun factor his earlier albums had. His production became too serious, intense, and it just wasn't as accessible. Some of it's over produced too, but never mind. This was his last 'real album', the last time he was truly untouchable.

          I haven't listened to the whole thing, but I have all the singles from it on iTunes and I love them. For some reason I've always loved the cover to this album, it's really tacky but it looks extremely iconic to me.

            That was one of those things about MJ that was great, he could do things that were self-indulgent and tacky for any other artist, but it worked when he did it. The Dangerous cover was awesome, as was HIStory.

              ^ I ended up buying the album yesterday! I went to an Italian music store and found one of those packages where they put 2 albums by an artist together and there was one with Dangerous & Bad Special Editions for 13€ so I knew I had to buy it. Haven't had a chance to listen to it yet, I will next week when I'm back home. I'm well excited about it though.

              And yeah, the HIStory cover is pretty amazing too, that's another one of my favourites.

                this album is on of the best albums i've ever heard. i wasn't even born during thriller, bad or dangerous eras, I was 1 when history came out and in peru (my native country) didn't talk about invincible. therefore, i don't have any "mj memories" that could somehow affect my decision. i don't know how famous or successful mj was during those times, i could only imagine but i know it's not the same... anyways first time listening to mj's songs was changing- life experience for me (musically). i only listened to spanish songs since i hated modern english music and still do,except for few songs. he made me explore enligsh music everything from nat kin cole,sam coke, marvin gaye to the beatles, queen, stevie wonder,etc.so. i remember writing "michael jackso" on youtube. the first thing it popped out "thriller". i completly loved the vid, not so much the song though. then i watched "billie jean" and that did it for me. fro that day explored all his solo discograohy, with a few exceptions albums (Destiny and triumph) . when i heard dangerous and i loved since the first time and became my fav for a loooong time. i love the infectious beats, wonderful melodies, mj's voice, the impacable production,etc. my fav mj albums are history,dangerous, bad ,thiller or off the wall, i couldn't choose between them. i just think each of them are different and unique.to me it's like choosing between oranges and grapes. they are both different & equally great to me
                in my opinion dangerous has weak songs (i can't let her away,she drives me wild, why you wanna a trip on me)they are not bad,but not as strong as the others. but i guess they fit on this album, since they all fall under new jack swing type of songs.
                fav tracks:
                remember the time,black or white,in the closet, will you be there, give in to me, heal the world,jam and who is it...
                still wonderful songs:
                dangeous,keep the faith

                  Dangerous was the era when Michael's antics took over the music.
                  Each single after Black or White did a little worse than the others.
                  The media was still all over him but the public and raido was moving on.
                  This was just in the US.
                  I liked Dangerous and it included one of my Top 5 and 10 favorite MJ songs In The Closet and Remember The Time.
                  I don't listen to it that much anymore and I don't remeber all the songs off the top of my head.
                  Not as memorable as Thriller and Bad for me but I still Love it.

                        All time classic album.

                        This was the first MJ era that I was really aware of, as I was too young for the others....and he was literally everywhere!

                        I have great memories of this album - 'Black or White' particularly brings back loads of memories. One of my favourite albums.

                          From track 7 till the end the album is GOLD! I wouldn't change a thing and all songs are top notch! Probably the most interesting songs he ever did musically! And he never had so many great songs in a row in ANY album...ever!

                            Lots of interesting discussion in this thread.

                            For a while this was my favourite MJ album, but I really like 'Bad' and 'HIStory' too now.

                            I was only 4 when it came out, but I can still remember videos like 'Black or White', 'Remember The Time' and 'In The Closet' very clearly because they were on TV all the time - and they were so good! My mom played the hell out of 'Give In To Me' - she had it recorded on VHS so I have many memories of seeing that video/hearing that song.

                            My favourites are:
                            In The Closet (probably MJ's sexiest ever song)
                            Give In To Me (nostalgia but also it is so fierce and different from his usual)
                            Heal The World (I used to find it cheesy as hell and it kinda still is, but after he died, the sincerity in his voice really shone through)

                            As for the sales, it's ludicrous this didn't sell more than 6 million in the US! It's probably way over that figure now, but from its actual era, just under 6M! Even Janet was a much bigger seller at this point. However, as I think Shane pointed out, it sold very well outside of the US, so much so to put it on equal sales as 'Bad'.

                            I would have loved to have lived through this era properly, including the bombshell of all the allegations. It must've been such a frenzy. Sure, I remember the 2003 allegations clearly and that whole drama, but MJ was already a recluse by then, not in the middle of a huge world tour and promoting a new album.

                              My Fav MJ album.

                              The only song I can't bear to listen to is heal the world....

                              But Jam, why u wanna trip on me, in the closet, who is it (FANTASTIC underated song), dangerous, remember the time (my fav mj video) are all excellent.

                              The first MJ album I bought as an 8 year old back in 92...although I moved on into rnb and hip hop i still have a lot of love for this record.

                                  My favorite MJ album.

                                  The video for In The Closet is so damn sexy, Heal The World never fails to make me cry or at least make me feel sad for all the bs that's going on in the world just like Earth Song :( , and Dangerous is on my top 10 favorites songs by MJ.

                                    1. Jam:
                                    I thought this was really awful. When it was released as a single it sort of grew on me. Still not a favorite.

                                    2. Why You Wanna Trip On Me:
                                    Awful.

                                    3. In The Closet
                                    Grew on me as it was a single, but not a favorite of mine.

                                    4. She Drives Me Wild
                                    Awful.

                                    5. Remember The Time
                                    Really love this one. Also has some great dance remixes. And the video is absolutely incredible!

                                    6. Can't Let Her Get Away
                                    Awful.

                                    7. Heal The World
                                    Love this one!!!! So catchy and such a lush production. Just epic! Don't like the video though.

                                    8. Black Or White
                                    Great video and great song.

                                    9. Who Is It
                                    Great song. The whole production and arrangement is soooo MJ. Love it lots.

                                    10. Give In To Me
                                    Dirty Diana is one of my all time favorite songs EVER! But this is just a weak copy.

                                    11. Will You Be There
                                    One of my all time favorite MJ songs. Truly epic in every way!

                                    12. Keep The Faith
                                    One of my favorite MJ album tracks ever! Love this one sooo much!

                                    13. Gone Too Soon
                                    Bit boring.

                                    14. Dangerous
                                    Not my kind of thing.

                                      I think this is my favourite Michael album, though Bad came really near the last years. I remember I saw Black or White and Remember The Time really often on TV. Heal The World was really present too. There are so many great songs on it, like In The Closet, Remember The Time, Who Is It...

                                      I never really listen to Gone Too Soon though, and not that often to Black Or White
                                      I am not trying to seduce you... Would you like me to seduce you? Is that what you're trying to tell me?

                                        My favourite Michael album too. Favourites: In the Closet, Who Is It, Give In to Me, Dangerous. Keep the Faith, She Drives Me Wild and Can't Let Her Get Away are all really underrated! Since Earth Song was recorded during the Dangerous sessions, I think I'd rather it be on here instead of Heal the World, which is probably my least favourite song on the record. Gone Too Soon always makes me sad.

                                          This was the first cd i ever bought so it holds a special place in my heart. Will You Be There is an outstanding yet very underrated track.

                                            Today is the 25th anniversary of Michael Jackson's 'Dangerous' the album has sold over 32 million WW & produced four top 10 singles.
                                            It's a pity there was no reissue to celebrate the 25th anniversary.

                                                    Shame Sony Legacy didn't bother to reissue Dangerous this year. They even reissued Off the Wall this year... on its 37th f*cking year!

                                                    Dangerous is not my favorite MJ album, but they did a pretty good job on Thriller and Bad's anniversary reissues so it doesn't hurt to have the same reissue for Dangerous.

                                                      Sony Legacy seems to be really messed up. OTW on the odd 37th year anniversary
                                                      No Dangerous 25th year anniversary release? And they release Thriller and Bad on their 25th anniversaries? Seriously fcuking messed up label.

                                                        A part of me is hopeful that they have something planned and it's just coming late. The Thriller and Bad reissues weren't in fact released in the months coinciding with their original releases.

                                                          ^ But both were released on their respective 25th anniversary-years (Thriller 25-2008 & Bad 25-2012). It's almost December and I can't see them releasing anything this year. And releasing it next year won't make any sense at all.

                                                            Wasn't Thriller released in December 1982? If we're going by years that would make it a 26th anniversary edition.
