Thriller 25 Years On
My American girlfriend bought this in LP format around 25 years ago when I was a poor impoverished student on a trip to Edinburgh. Funny to think that was the highpoint of his career. I liked it then and still like it now and have it as a CD, somewhere in a cardboard box in our shed. Apparently it is popular with a new generation here in Australia with the rerelease near the top of the charts. The music companies must be pretty desperate. Why would you want to mess with a classic. I listened to some of the tracks on the radio this week and it seemed over engineered and flat. I didn't know that Generation Y and the like bought plastic music. I thought they only spent it on ITunes.
