A great compilation, but too short!, 6 July 2009
Author: Gordon-11 from Hong Kong

This is a compilation of Michael Jackson's music videos throughout his decades of music career.

"Michael Jackson: Number Ones" is a great compilation, as it contains many of his excellent videos. I particularly enjoy the newer videos, as I am more familiar with them. "Earth Song" is the best out of them, as it truly sends a message about how the Earth is being destroyed by humans. Every time I watch it, I feel so touched. Other videos of mention are "You Are Not Alone" and "Blood on the Dance Floor", they are both beautifully made.

The only criticism I have is that it contained too few of his music videos.
