Okay,i start with telling about the videos in the order they appear
The statue ego MJ thing: I really liked this part,he think he is the world or something,thats really cool with the military and stuff and when the words michael jacksons History comes up,really cool! 10/10
Billie Jean(Motown 25): This video is pretty interesting in a retro suspective because its the first moonwalk but its nothing more special about it. 7/10
Beat It: Why its on HIStory Vol II i cant understand because it was on the first one but anyway i like the video,its a fresh breath of the 80ies especially that jacket but its a shame that he doesn't dance so much in it. 9/10
Liberian Girl: The song is beautiful,i really like it but the video is a little bit odd but i guess it shows like the showbusniess because its dedicated to elisabeth taylor(michaels friend)great song,odd video 6/10
Smooth Criminal(Moonwalker Version): Oh my god!this video really rocks!!!about 10 minutes long and just incredible dance moves and one of the greatest songs in HIStory ; ) it doesn't get better than this!!!(note:there is about 3 different versions of smooth criminal and the slow-mo one is really crap!) i give this 10000000/10
1995 MTV Video Music Awards Performance: At first sight it looks like something odd with that guitar solo but after slash leaves the scene it gets fantastic and MJ performs Dangerous,Billie Jean and You Are Not Alone 7/10
Thriller: This one was also on HIStory Vol I!but anyway its a real thing of beauty and is about 12 mins long and started the music video thing as a short movie!i would give it a 100/10
Scream(Duet with Janet and Michael Jackson): This song is really amusing and i like it really much when he has that angry voice but the video is somewhat confusing but not bad at all 9/10
Childhood: I cant remember this video being on the TV!but anyway the song is fantastic and i like the vocals!the video is pretty mystic in a good way!MJ sings about himself so!9/10
You Are Not Alone(The angel version): This was never on TV i think,the angel part was cut but its nothing special,MJ has wings standing in a waterfall.this is a beautiful song and Lisa Marie Presley whos stares in this video is to!actually she hasn't that much clothes on!its a fantastic ballad! 10/10
Earth Song: Pretty mystic name but the song is great about lands in crisis!MJ stands between 2 trees and sings!when all the rainforest is being shopped and animals dying its hard to not feel sorry! 10/10
They Don't Care About Us(Brazilian Version): A shame that the prison version didn't get on any DVD but this is good to!real good!This and Smooth Criminal(Moonwalker Version) makes this DVD rock even harder!MJ is in Brazil dancing and screaming about injustice in this excellent song with fantastic lyrics and those drums... 10/10
Stranger In Moscow: Pretty boring video in black/white where MJ singing in the rain about loneliness.but its really touching! 8/10
Blood On The Dancefloor(Refugee Camp Mix) Watch out for this remix!!!!The original song was good as hell but this spoils it all!the video is good and fun but the song is total crap,not the lyrics of course!its the remix of it that sucks! 2/10
Brace Yourself: This is not a music video!it appeared on Dangerous:The Short Films i think.Its just a video showing how BIG MJ is!the same message as in the ego statue thing!but its cool! 10/10
Highly recommended but Blood On The Dancefloor Refugee Camp Remix shouldn't be on the cd,put in the original instead!
