Product Description

Amazon.com

George Michael's second post-Wham! outing, Listen Without Prejudice could not have been more appropriately titled. Following on the booty-shakin' heels of Faith, Listen found Michael being more serious than sassy. "Freedom 90" had a strong groove, a catchy melody, and of course, the sex-bomb video. The contemplative tone of the album is best illustrated by the other hit that it spawned, "Praying for Time." Michael's voice was as strong as ever, and he did indeed take several risks on the CD. "They Won't Go When I Go," (not a Michael composition) was almost cryptic, and "Cowboys and Angels" was a lament of a different kind. --Steve Gdula

This is one of the saddest, most depressing cds you'll ever listen to. There's definitely a haunting undertone here, but the songs are very good and they showcase Michael's tremendous singing ability. If you are looking for happy music, keep right on going, because this isn't for you. If you like a little piano, acoustic guitar, and a wide variety of song styles, then you should like this. It's George Michael in a way he was never seen before. I've always enjoyed this cd more than his candy-pop music, and I'll never part with it.

I was not one to listen to George Michael in his "Faith" days. Né, I despised his music really. When a few mates mentioned this cd was quite good (and this was when it was released) I laughed and thought no more of it. I expected "Monkey" and all that "Biker Femme" nonsense from "Faith," which, admittedly, is good as far as American pop music goes. I didn't except anything more than that. However, one day while listening to the radio I heard "Freedom '90" and thought, now that's a bit catchy. Kind of like a "Faith" song but smarter and (I hate to sound ridiculous but) more mature. So eventually I borrowed "LWP" from a pal and gave it a shot. I was pleasantly surprised. A very serious theme runs throughout. Part acoustic (Something to Save for example), part pure pop (Freedom '90), and lots of excellent, inventive stuff in between. Cowboys and Angels is an incredible song, and I'm not sure if I can describe why. You Can't Always Get What You Want tells a great auto-biographical story. I am not all that knowledgeable about music (insert "no kidding" here), but this is the best cd I've heard, ever. It's as big a surprise to me as it would be to you.

Throughout his entire career, his songwriting has always been unique, the haunting qualities of his voice have always been at the forefront of his melodies. Yet, he has only ever produced 3 albums, and his last real album was over 7 years ago. Where others of less talent, would produce new albums every 6 months or yearly, George evidentely can only release material when he has 'something to say'.
For many, George is the aspirational singer, songwriter. No one has ever combined such unique songwriting skills with such an emotive and addictive voice.
In many ways, this album contains tracks that are as good (Emotionally, Spiritually,) as can ever be produced, by anyone, anywhere.
Consider this, George was only 17 when he wrote 'careless whisper', seems incredible how someone so young had the maturity and talent to write / compose such a timeless and effortless ballad.
There seems to be 2 types of people in life, those that will look at a product, and appreciate its qualities, regardless of fashion or what mass popularity dictates. Or those that can only follow the mainstream, and go along with whatever is popular, good or, more usually, the very bad indeed.
So, the title of this album is perfect, for me and many others, its without doubt one of the very, very finest peices of music ever recorded. For others, it contains G.Michael who was ultra popular with girls when in Wham! so they can never get seen even holding the cd.
What does it take to change the essence of a man ?

Hmmm... if it is 2006 and you are reading this review because you are considering buying this CD, all I can ask is who are you? I cannot believe that anyone who likes George Michael would not already own this CD, seeing as it has been out for over 16 years.

That said, this is one of my favorite CDs; definitely in my Top 10. This is actually the first CD that I found a way to "wear out" and had to buy a second copy (basically, repeated plays throughout the years resulted in the disc getting scratched, dinged and skipping during playback). This CD is consistent from start to finish, without a weak song. It is also a much better album than "Faith" and holds up better over repeated listens.

This CD was underrated back in 1990, basically because of its somewhat somber tone, and because it did not have as many radio-friendly tracks as "Faith". In fact, outside of "Freedom '90", it has no "radio friendly" material on it. However, this CD is a consistently rewarding listen. It is somber without being gloomy. It retains George Michael's brand of pop music, and his unique sound, without being "commercial". This was certainly not another "Faith" and in fact the only song from "Faith" that might sound at home on this release would be "Hand to Mouth". Otherwise, the album is a definite departure (albeit a very positive departure) for George.

Considering the time when this thing came out (i.e. the year of "Ice Ice Baby", "U Can't Touch This" and "Cherry Pie") this album was actually ahead of its time. It is one of the few releases from 1990 (along with Depeche Mode's "Violator") that have aged well.

My only complaint is that this CD (along with the rest of George's solo and Wham! output) is in dire need of remastering.

In my mind, the best track off "Listen Without Prejudice" is "Mothers Pride," an elegantly arranged ballad in which George Michael articulates the pain of a mother who loses her child to fight in combat. Authentic to the core, this piano-flavored song ranks among Michael's best, and to this day it makes me get a little emotional whenever I hear it. Elsewhere on the album, we find George trying to sever ties from his teenybopper past in Wham!, and for the most part he succeeds. "Soul Free" is a rump-shaking number that flies on the strength of its Soul II Soul-esque groove, while "Waiting For the Day" and the deliciously jazzy "Cowboys and Angels" shows that George is a long way from the perkiness of "Wake Me Up Before You Go Go." "Listen Without Prejudice" sold only a mere fraction of what its predecessor "Faith" did, and it began a very public battle with his now former label Sony. Yet, it's a compelling disc that still holds up well. Listen not only without prejudice but with wide open ears
