The Best-Selling Album of All Time Celebrates It's 40th Anniversary: Michael Jackson's Thriller Receives Definitive Treatment on Mobile Fidelity's Numbered-Edition Hybrid SACDMastered from the Original Analog Master Tapes for Superior Sound: Experience the Transformative Songs, Soulful Vocals, Sleek Rhythms, and Vibrant Production as If Hearing It All for the First Time34-Times-Platinum Blockbuster Changed Music, Culture, Entertainment, and Society: Includes 'Beat It,' 'Billie Jean,' 'Thriller,' 'Wanna Be Startin' Somethin',' and 'The Girl Is Mine' (with Paul McCartney)Putting into perspective the incalculable impact and pioneering significance of the best-selling album of all time has never been easy. Though Michael Jackson's Thriller lays claim to mindboggling statistics - for starters, it netted a record-breaking eight Grammy Awards and sold upwards of 70 million copies globally - that serve as reminders of how pervasive and indispensable it remains to music snobs and casual listeners alike, it's essence always traces back to the greatness, power, and scope of the songs. Now, as it celebrates it's 40th anniversary, the blockbuster that reconceptualized music via a genre- and color-blind blend of fleet pop, funk, disco, soul, and rock sent up with cinematic panache and dynamic energy; united audiences; made strides towards achieving racial equality; and taught the world how to dance sounds even more invigorating than it did during the advent of the Walkman.Mastered from the original analog master tapes and housed in mini-gatefold sleeve packaging, Mobile Fidelity's numberededition hybrid SACD does for Thriller what Jackson's unforgettable appearance on the 'Motown 25' TV special in 1983 did for his career: It makes the music personal, human, desirable, relatable, imaginative - the definition of cool. This reissue does so by presenting the songs in lifelike fashion, zeroing in on the fundamentals with laser focus, and magnifying the brilliance of the production, arrangements, and vocals in ways that let everyone experience Thriller as if hearing the album for the first time. The expanse and depth of the soundstage, range of detail, air around the vocals, and natural decay of notes come through with demonstration-grade realism. 'It's close to midnight...'
