Debate Rounds (3)
It has sold the most albums in U.S. History and world history.
Contention 2: Grammys
He has won seven awards for "Thriller" more than any other album. More than any other album by Michael Jackson.
Contention 2 see this is how much respect people have for grammy's. In fact I will wait to see your response before letting you know Michael Jackson's own opinion on them.
Bring on round 2, were we might discuss such Gems as in "The Girl is Mine" Michael utters "I think I told you, I'm a lover not a fighter" --------------------------- I feel nauseous
The Grammys shows all of the people who are the best in the industry deciding who is to win an award. If you win a lot of awards for one album that means all the people in the music industry like it too.
How popular an album is does not indicate how good it is. Even if it sells a lot of copies that still doesn't always mean everyone that bought a copy likes it. Thriller is the musical equivalent of a movie like Titanic. It won a ton of Oscars and broke all box office records but that was not down to it being a good movie it was down to an enormous global marketing campaign, ground breaking special effects and a lead actor with a crazy following. Likewise Thriller was produced and marketed in a way no album had ever been before. It's video's created a new industry and the moonwalk stunned audiences. It had a huge marketing budget and became a global phenomenon. None of these things are relevant to the Album's quality. The songs are derivative of other genres it's a collection of unrelated lyrically meaningless pop by numbers tracks.
"The Grammys shows all of the people who are the best in the industry deciding who is to win an award. If you win a lot of awards for one album that means all the people in the music industry like it too."
It doesn't always. Thriller won awards the same way Titanic won Oscars because the Album had such a lavish production most people in the music industry had little choice but to vote for it.
Michael Jackson's best album is Off The Wall. It created a new genre of music and provided the gap needed to get away from disco. The songs flow together as one piece of art from a naturally gifted artist who subsequently let achieving commercial success and notoriety become more important to him than creating music. Michael Jackson created Off The Wall before he became a cartoon character and it is the most honest and classy piece of work he ever produced.
Destruction forfeited this round.
