Some fans have wondered why there isn't a Blu-ray release of this collection. The only reason I can come up with is that the vast majority of these videos would look like crap on a high definition format. Most of them unfortunately look pretty bad, apparently transferred from a video master rather than original film elements.
Even the cinematic productions like "Thriller" and "Bad" are disconcertingly mediocre, looking no better than on previous video collections. I guess no one really considered at the time that these short promotional films would be reissued over and over on increasingly unforgiving formats. While the visual quality generally improves as the videos progress from the '70s to the '00s, even "Cry" from 2001's Invincible looks hazy.
Even if this is the very best these videos will ever look, it's disappointing that a surround sound mix was not created. The 2.0 stereo sounds fine, but it really makes the collection feel like a non-event. Michael Jackson's Vision contains about four and a half hours of content, retailing for $39.98. It's nice to have so many videos in one package, but all the material could have comfortably fit on two discs instead of three.
