Picks and Pans Review: More George: A Buyer's Guide
MAKE IT BIG
(WITH WHAM!, 1984)
Featherweight bubblegum to match their feathered hair. But surprisingly soulful too. Key track: the sexy, saxy "Careless Whisper"
LISTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE, VOL. 1
No Faith 2, this masterpiece in its own right took a page from the Beatles and Stevie Wonder. Key track: "Freedom," a liberating anthem
An ever-more-mature Michael explored exotic sounds like bossa nova and Middle Eastern music along with jazz. Key track: "Jesus to a Child," in its heavenly lushness
This deeply personal album-underappreciated like most of his post-Faith work-celebrated and laid bare aspects of his life as a gay man. Key track: the happy-at-last "Amazing"
