Another acknowledgment comes for the king of pop from the U.S. Library of Congress that added his hit album to the National Recording Registry.


Although having lots of problems recently that made his image looked bad, Michael Jackson's musical effort is still being acknowledged by the U.S. Government. Michael's hit album "Thriller" has been added to the Library of Congress' National Recording Registry on May 14.

The act is one of the Congress' plans to preserve culturally, historically or aesthetically significant recordings. Considering the success of Michael's 1982 LP, which achieved not only national but international acclaim, the board decided to add the king of pop's hit record on their list.

Moreover, explaining their reason to add "Thriller" on the National Recording Registry, the Congress on their official website wrote that the hit album had a big influence on the recording industry. "The album's influence on the record industry and subsequent popular music is immeasurable," the website read.

Beside Michael's record, there are other 24 records that were added on the Registry. Among them are the records from famous and legendary musicians, such as Joni Mitchell's "For The Roses", Herbie Hancock's "Headhunters" and Roy Orbison's "Oh, Pretty Woman".

In other news, the pop singer himself recently has been reported to be working on a new studio album. Reports also said that for his upcoming project he will be assisted by Akon.
