Editorial Reviews

2008 reissue of 1996 album entitled Older by George Michael. The album produced a number of hit singles, making Michael become the first artist in UK chart history to have six top 3 singles from one album. George Michael achieved fame in the duo Wham in his native U.K. in 1982. Through 1986, he and his partner, Andrew Ridgeley, scored hit after hit in a variety of styles from Rap to up-tempo Pop to slow Ballads. As songwriter and lead singer, Michael gradually overshadowed the group, and by the time they split, he was ready for a massively successful solo career. This began with the 1987 album Faith, which featured a series of chart-topping hit singles and sold more than seven million copies.

Customer Reviews

His voice quality is superb.

Older is a timeless record that speaks from the heart about discovery of ones self, the loss of love and the realization of 'how life goes'.

For me, this is one of those albums that I will absolutely never tire of. So you didn't think a white boy could sing passionate stately soul music with the best of 'em? Well, you're sadly mistaken. George Michael is an incredibly-underrated singer and musician and he tapped something special when he pieced this fine work together. It was a six-year wait between his greatly-underappreciated 'Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1' and this album, and when it finally dropped there was a lot of skepticism going around about whether he could still deliver. But, the fact is, Michael is a truly gifted singer and musician, who has only grown better and better over time. The songs all have a clear sound and a nice emotional feel, whether it is a slower song or a laid-back groove. The music holds down a nice neutral ground between R&B, jazz, and dance, and he shows true mastery of everything.
There is no doubt that this is his most deeply personal and heartfelt songwriting here. Most of the songs are ballads or soft, mid-tempo numbers and Michael pours every bit of emotion he can surmise into these songs. The most somber song on the album is the opening track 'Jesus to a Child', a quiet reflection on love lost and the painful day-by-day struggle to come to grips with it. Interestingly enough, it was chosen as the first single. 'Fastlove' is a bouncy disco number about getting hot and bothered with a girl and getting her in bed for a quickie just for the sake of it (well, that's the vibe I got from it, whoever he wants to get into bed with is his business, na'mean?). The title track 'Older' is a nice, melancholy number that serves as the album's theme - letting go, moving on, and growing older, as the title suggests.

Older is one of the best albums from the 1990's in my opinion. It was a long wait since his last album in 1990, but this fan wasn't disapointed. The death of his lover caused George to reevaulate his life, and this deeply introspective album is very dark and depressing, but it's truly beautiful in its own ways. His words come from wisdom and experience, you can feel his pain in each song. There wasn't a song that didn't resonate in my soul when listening to this album, even to this day. The album is very jazzy in a sense, and there isn't much uptempo material other than the hit Fastlove, and another single from the album, Star People.
The songs are so beautifully written, and sung with every bit of passion and emotion that sits in his soul. He poured himself into this album, and its truly remarkable. Songs like Jesus to a Child will stand as classics forever. Other truly great songs here are It Doesnt Really Matter, You Have Been Loved, and Older, only not a filler track is to be found anywhere on this collection.
This album is perfect when you are feeling sad, and want to understand yourself. Just turn out the lights, sit by the fire, have a glass of wine and enjoy this truly compelling collection of material, its his best yet.

George Michael's last album of original material, "Older", is his most stylized and sophisticated effort. The songs continue much in the vein of "Listen Without Prejudice, Vol. I" but with an added element of gentleness. Most of this album consists of ballads or soft, mid-tempo numbers and Michael delivers his most delicate singing here. The music bounces between R&B, jazz, and dance, with some exotic middle eastern melodies and languid saxophone solos mixed in here-and-there that work well. Much of the album also features busy yet feather-like percussion that keeps it from drifting into "boring ballad" land. Michael plays much of the instrumentation himself and proves to be a fine musician & arranger.
This album is a bit of a rarity in a way; many of the songs have a gentle, slow feeling but the sound as a whole is so stylish and graceful that the album doesn't put you to sleep. This album contains none of the sex-filled, youthful energy found on his first album (except for the catchy disco song "Fastlove"), but rather, as the title explains, showcases the work of an artist who is indeed getting older (and better). Singers of the world beware of this album, this man has got style & skill to spare.

This album is easily in my top 10 albums of all time. And considering that albums from Pantera, Metallica, Anthrax, and Megadeth are also there, that must mean something. My roots lay in heavy music, but you just have to give props where props are due.

I love this album so much because it's George Michael laying it all out there for everyone to see. His lyrics are honest and his vocals are mind-blowing.

Every time I listen to "You Have Been Loved," I have to fight back the tears. How heart-wrenching to listen about a Mother's son dying and her trying to figure out why it all happened. "For what's the use in pressing palms when children fade in Mother's arms." - Amazing. A Mother is "Searching for her crime" to figure out why such a horrible thing has befallen her. George is distressed over the futility of trying to explain why bad things happen. Just amazing.

This album is a piece of art. I can't say enough good things about it.

~Slick
