The Lady Killer himself, Cee-Lo Green, steps up to the plate and divulges his 13 favourite albums to The Quietus


Michael Jackson - Thriller
That record, and that image, and that video... it was powerful because I was afraid of it. More than just a regular horror movie, because at some point, logic will kick in. 'Freddy Kruger's not real'. But Michael Jackson is real, you know what I'm saying? I don't think it can be denied how brilliant he was. Michael Jackson was one of the most obviously brilliant things I've ever seen. Off The Wall was just as good as Thriller, if not better; it's the iconic image of Thriller that makes it so good.
