Thriller was misschien wel berekend om het grootst mogelijke publiek aan te spreken, maar de schaamteloze brutaliteit van die berekeningen (wie anders had eraan gedacht om metal-virtuoos Eddie Van Halen te vragen om mee te spelen in een disco-nummer?) verdwijnt in het niets door het succes ervan. Enkel op dit album kan een lieftallig nummer als "Human Nature" zomaar naast het stoere "Beat It,", de sentimentaliteit van het duet met Paul McCartney "The Girl Is Mine," en het bruisende "P.Y.T.." staan. Hoewel dit inderdaad leuk is, voel je de paranoia van "Billie Jean" en zorgt het uitzinnige "Wanna Be Startin' Something," voor een emotioneel houvast op Thriller.

“Thriller”: The Anatomy of a Masterpiece

With "Thriller” in 1982, the best-selling album of all time, Michael Jackson broke down the boundaries between styles, races and audiences. However, most of all, it was an album that completely shook up the pop music industry of the 20th century.

Trip Hop in 10 Albums

At the dawn of the ’90s, the trip hop wave overtook the UK with an electronica sound influenced by Jamaican music and hip hop beats. With their chloroformed rhythms and heavy ambience, Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Morcheeba and several other outfits invented a kind of dark, futuristic and often cinematic soul music. Here’s a spotlight on 10 albums from a genre with blurred sonic borders but a definitive musical influence.
