GEORGE MICHAEL

Faith: Special Edition

Like Thriller, Purple Rain and Like a Virgin, Faith was one of the pop blockbusters that defined the '80s, a game-changer in the MTV generation. Listening to the new remastered edition of George Michael's '87 classic-including a bonus CD of remixes and rarities, plus a DVD with interviews and videos-you can hear its massive influence on everyone from Robbie Williams and Ricky Martin to Justin Timberlake (note the Wham!/boy-band connection). Whether it's the too-funky strut of "I Want Your Sex," the straight-from-church soul of "One More Try" or the ripped-jeans rockabilly of "Faith," the songs still smoke.
