1059. Michael Jackson - Thriller

The biggest selling album of all time - and my guess is that it will be forever since nobody buys albums anymore. What makes Thriller so great is simple: the songs. Every song on this is a winner. It also had timing on its side. The world was ready for a major pop icon - MTV was ready for a video icon and america was ready to embrace talent despite of race. Another key factor was the production - Quincy Jones, who is never given enough credit I think, produced the shit out of this record - making songs cut from various cloths feel as if they are all one from a single body of music.
