Excellent 4 MJ fans
5 February 2001 | by didsunoSee all my reviews

I bought this on DVD, and was astounded by the sound quality, music videos and the amazing performances by a truly talented artist.

His performances include, Billie Jean (Motown 25: Yesterday, Today and Forever) which started the unique 'moonwalking' dance and the 1995 MTV video music awards performance which shows the highly skilled dance routines that will leave you drooling and your jaw hanging.....

The compilation of all of his music shows all the stages he has been through in his life from a innocent, sweet, black boy to a surgically enhanced, scrutinized adult with a rollar-coaster past...

Some of the music videos on the second side were not of a high standard as his hits such as billie jean, beat it and thriller and it would have been nice to see some more of the oldies such as bad, rock with you, remember the time and the highly acclaimed black or white.

On side one we see original music that you can get on down to...but on side two there is a twist as we see the expensive 'Scream' showing his harrassment from the media, 'Childhood' which shows his painful youth. They all show a negative but true message.

This is two hours of short films that will definately leave you spinning and wanting more from one of the best artists of the millenium...Michael Jackson.
