UPDATED 02/28/2011 at 01:00 AM EST Originally published 02/28/2011 at 01:00 AM EST

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

(1990)

No Faith 2, this masterpiece in its own right took a page from the Beatles and Stevie Wonder. Key track: "Freedom," a liberating anthem

OLDER

(1996)

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

PATIENCE

(2004)

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"
