Dangerous is the eighth studio album by American pop singer Michael Jackson, released in November 1991 by Epic. In January 1989, the Bad world tour had come to the end, which made Jackson spent the whole year of 1990 in the recording sessions that would result in his new job, Dangerous.

In the parentheses from 1987-the year in which Bad was published- and 1991 had occurred several notable events: the fall of the Berlin Wall, the beginning of a new decade (the nineties), the disgrace of various genres -mainly the peculiar synthpop from the second half of the eighties, and disco -in freefall since Thriller-, being relieved by such innovative styles like hip hop, rap, break dance or alternative rock. Global successes -deserved or not- as harvesting by MC Hammer in 1990 with its main theme 'Can't Touch This' had completely subverted the music scene to the limit.

In that sense, a huge challenge was presented to Jackson: to find their own accommodation and style, adapting to new times ahead, without betraying nor its character as defined in the previous years, which catapulted him to the top, or his legacy. Difficult task.

For that purpose, Jackson took several decisions: firstly, he separated from his producer in the three previous albums, Quincy Jones, which was but a extremely risky bet, and being replaced by a very young Teddy Riley, an expert on street rhythms, very fashionable in the early 1990s, and Bill Bottrell. Secondly, going for the predominance of rhythm, to the detriment of the song lyrics, being the new jack swing the epitome of change pursued. And finally, a controversial (and superb, I must admit it, everyday I find out a new hidden message inside the picture) cover for the album that gave the final product a superior artistic invoice.

Jackson was likely to fail in the attempt, but surprisingly, he succeeded. He created a new style for the decade as timeless as Off the Wall, Thriller and Bad, due to he managed to keep his trademark as he only was able to do it, apart from incorporating the most striking and brilliant new chords to his repertoire.

In fact, the double album consists of fourteen new tracks, nine of which went on to become singles, selling at the time about thirty-two million copies worldwide. As in his previous album, Dangerous was promoted globally through a world tour, which lasted two years, until 1993, earning a Grammy Award for Bruce Swedien and Bill Bottrell.

To highlight the opening music video album, Black or white, which became relevant for the use of the most modern video techniques existing at the time (Morphing), and ascended to number one on the Billboard soon afterwards was viewed on many countries simultaneously; the setting based on ancient Egypt in Remember the Time (the closest example of similarity with Quincy Jones’ style in the album), the unique duo playing basketball between two aces in their respective areas (Michael Jordan and Michael Jackson) in Jam, the artistic greatness of the film In the Closet, the virtuosity of the song of peace on earth Heal the World and gospel energy reflected in Will You Be There and Keep the Faith. The emotional tribute to the figure of Ryan White in Gone Too Soon. The unusual rock topic of Give in to Me. The impeccable cinematic grandeur and drama presented in Who is it. And, as a backdrop, the best album closing imaginable: Dangerous (his live performance in 1993 was one of the most incredible I’ve ever seen in my life. Incomprehensible its exclusion as a single.

Two factors helped to Dangerous to surround back the top spot on the charts, two years after its release: Jackson's performance at the Superbowl 1993 (one of the best in the history of this sporting event) and his interview with Oprah Winfrey, the first since 1979. The guitarist Slash, from Gun’s & Roses and the rapper Heavy D collaborated with him in the musical section, among others. Although, in my opinion, I would have replaced either Can not Let Her get away or Why You Wanna Trip on Me (the weakest of Dangerous, undoubtedly) for 'Monkey Business', later released in 2004 on the compilation' The Ultimate Collection '. In any case, definitely, his most creative and original album and of course, one of the best in the nineties.

Graphically, I will evaluate the tracks of Dangerous, on a scale with reference to the global average of the album (5 out of five stars), placing first the most exceptional, and in the last position, the less prominent, according to my musical criteria (in fact, it's such a difficult matter and extremely difficult to discriminate between songs which took part in a exceptional album like this that I might be wrong):
Dangerous, Who Is It, Remember the Time, Black or White, Jam, Heal the World, Will you Be There, Give in to Me, In the Closet, Keep the Faith, Gone Too Soon/AVERAGE of ‘Dangerous’/She Drives Me Wild, Why You Wanna Trip on Me, Can’t Let Her Get Away.

In 1993, Michael Jackson could be satisfied with himself. He had plateaued and broken barriers, with worldwide recognition. And his image was, despite his eccentricities, already visible at that stage of his life, universally acclaimed. But from the month of August of that year, with his first legal implication for child abuse, nothing would be the same for him. Sadly for him. So, would it be able to recover from this blow with a new punch line? That was the question. And it will be reflected in my next review.

Anyone else notice that the word "three" in "side three" is misspelled as "tree"? Kinda funny, I bought mine at the end of this pressing's life and it still had it. I guess no one noticed it over 8 years or so haha.

Then its a misprint! Well... i dont know if you could consider thats error a misprint, but check!

My copy is excellent. Plays perfect has no background noise at all. I think it's better then the original pressing. Love all tracks - such a great album. Michael: the world is missing you and your music. Such a shame your not with us anymore . I am Fan 4 ever x. For me one of the most inspiring artist that ever lived...

This remastered release worth a bite. My copy almost flawless and sounds great, no cracks/clicks.

Recently I’ve purchased this release at a local vinyl store in The Netherlands. Upon listening I was very disappointed with the sound quality. I sounded as if I was listening through a pillow, a dull sound with little vibrance. Noticed several pops/clicks, even after using the carbon brush before it’s first play. Exactly the way reviewer ‘Vibeby’ describes below. My records also missed some of the labeling and were pressed incorrectly (the center hole was molded wrong). Finally, some of the song were skipping on it’s first play. Unacceptable, definately a bad pressing.I returned the set to the store and was hesitant to exchange it for a new set since I also wasn’t impressed with the sound quality. I was happy I did exchange it for a new set.The new set has no strange pressing errors, shows all labels, doesn’t skip and, most importantly, sounds totally awesome! The Black or White intro and first notes sound very impressive, so do the other songs. I literally had a ‘ Jam’ playing these records. “Why you wanna trip on me’ sounds very sharp, but not artificially enhanced, giving you the lows exactly were you’ll expect them. In the end I ended up playing the full set on it’s first play, listening while doing some work, cooking and, at times, turning up the volume just to confirm over and over this is a very fine release. Recommended (, but watch out for bad pressings). L.O.V.E.

finally got this pressing. wanted to compare my old 1991 korean pressing. it's 10 seconds to see how poorly mastered pressing it is. compared the 1991 Korean pressing, channel seperation and dynamics are noticeably poor on this. base is dull. since this album itself was mixed and produced superbly, if one listen only this pressing, the one would think this is a great pressing with a good SQ. bu sorry it's not. it can be so much better on original pressings.

Just side three presented some 'pop' issues, but i think with a good deep cleaning it would sound alright, other than that i thought the rest of the sides sounded amazing

Lots of negative reviews here, I think the pressing sounds absolutely amazing.

Same for me a lot of cracks and pops and cleaning it didn't solve it at all.The mastering is very good but the pressing is a shit !!!!!!I am fed up paying more than 25€ for a product that manufacturers produce like shit....They should do something good for this resurected market, but as usual they don't understand anything about merchandizing and quality...Produce bad quality in quantity, and soon you'll make the market die once more. Incredible to be so so narrow minded....

Had no chance with my copy. Strong hissing / distortion on s-sounds from time to time, especially on B4, C2 and C3. Quite disappointing. Too bad that I don't have a '91 pressing to compare with. What do you folks think of the initial pressing quality?

I really hoped this would sound good - and it does! Very good! The production and sounds in this album mean that any errors in pressing would be pretty obvious. Im so happy with it. Great seperation, clean crisp highs (glass breaking) and punchy lows (dad thumping on the door). In my top 5 best sounding records. :)

I finally bought it this week and it sounds way better than the original CD version on my system (Denon amp with Mosscade speakers).

I don't know why some people are experiencing this release as utter garbage whilst others praise its excellent sound quality.I bought my copy yesterday sealed in a shop in Berlin. My personal opinion is that it sounds fantastic. I mean just at the beginning of Blackand White when you hear that kid's father's knocking, that sounds phenomal, plus the guitar during that track. That release has a lotof dynamics. I love it.However I have a feeling why some people might have a different opinion. I can also hear some hissing but it is only really minor. However hearing thathissing on one or two tracks makes me believe that it might depend on the pickup system one is using for this release. I personally own a 2M Blackcartridge however I can somehow imagine that it might sound entirely different using a different system. I personally love this release. It is a great album and it sounds great. Every track is a banger. Excellent it is one the best sounding vinyls I have heardin my entire life, I think. But that is my own personal opinion.

Not sure why others had so many problems with this pressing. I have it and it sounds really great. Also had an original '91 copy and it sounded surprisingly awful. It was very quiet and lacked detail.

For me, This LP is Excellent. Great sound vs my old Cd. Better sound. Don't listen to de previous comments....

After reading others comments on this MOV pressing, I almost didn't break the seal on this album and was going to send it back. I'm glad I opened it, because it sounds phenomenal. Maybe I got lucky, or maybe they fixed the issue.

Same here, sounds great! No issues at all. Maybe a second or earlier pressing..

The sound is really disgusting. Every "s" sounds like a snake. Every cymbal sounds like it's going to crush my ears with scissors. The worst version ever.

1102/5000I keep my remarks on the quality of this pressing, even if this album is in my top 10 of all time. This pressing is one of the 5 or 6 albums I use for testing my new needles when I change some. I played it with $50 to $350 needles, with a DJ turntable and a Hi-Fi record player. Nothing completely hides the poor quality of pressing and mixing of this edition, and no needle can make my ears believe that the sybillin sounds are well mixed on this album. Currently, I have a 2M Bronze PnP cartridge by Ortofon which simplifies and makes listening more pleasant, but the facts are there: This disk is mediocre. It does not mean that the songs are bad, it is certainly the best album of all time. Afterwards if you think that a decent needle for listening to popular music costs more than $350, then I can no longer answer you. And if the price of your needle makes you forget the imperfections that your ears tell you, so much the better for you, because I listen to my ears more than my wallet. The truth is here : this pressing is horrible when you're the King of Pop.

Don't want to be a smart ass, but maybe try to buy a decent needle?

It isn't the first time that MOV has totally screwed up an LP reissue :-( I'm very carefull with their releases.

Is it just my version or does this release contain massive sound issues?

Did you find another edition that has good sound ?
