Product Description

It must be hard being a George Michael fan. Patience is only his fourth studio effort in the 18 years since Wham! split, so its release must be some cause for celebration. There always seems to have been something preventing him from releasing a new album--from arrests for lewd behavior, protracted battles with record companies, or prolonged periods of grieving for departed family and friends. Thankfully, Patience is pretty good.

Flitting between fraught ballads and up-tempo adult pop (the misguided sample-laden single "Freeek!" being the unnecessary exception), George here returns to the structure and mood of 1990s Listen Without Prejudice, Vol. 1. Patience is at its most delicate and moving with its title track, the intense, tabloid-attacking "Through" and the painful family memories of "My Mother Had a Brother." To balance this, hearts will be raised by "Amazing," with its echoes of the Bee Gees, "Round Here," in which George remembers his early days scampering around Bushey with Andrew Ridgley, and "Cars and Trains," which celebrates the kind of lifestyle that so riled the LAPD back in 1998. That's the thing about George Michael these days. Love him or loathe him, he is unapologetically himself. And fans should be very grateful for that. --Dominic Wills

As always, perfect lyrics, extraordinary melodies and a great voice.
Micki - Lima
Not as initially 'catchy' as some of his previous work, yet for those that will allow more time to appreciate and understand this album, the rewards are outstanding.

My review may be a bit biased being a fan since the early days of Wham!.

My review may be a bit biased being a fan since the early days of Wham!. With his newest release "Patience" fans and listeners get to see a rounded out George, complete with dance hits and introspective ballads. "Amazing" & "Flawless" are sure to get your toes tapping, and "Amazing" already boasts dance mixes that are snappy. "Shoot the Dog" and "Freeek" were released as singles, and although I scooped them up, didn't appreciate them as much as I do now. If you can get past the controversy of "Shoot the Dog" you just might find yourself enjoying this song.
"Patience" is almost a biographical tour de force of George's life, ranging from family death ("My Mother had a Brother), George's life in London ("Round Here), an homage to his departed partner ("Please send me someone--Anselmo's Song) and a thank you to his Texan Partner ("American Angel"). Of the ballads "Precious Box", "American Angel" and "Please send me Someone" really struck home and I found myself truly listening to not just the song itself but the words behind it. As an aside "Please send me Someone" is brilliantly arranged, without a hint of sappiness that could have made this song heavy.
One of the dedications of this album is to the patient fans who waited many long years for this solo release. George Michael's releases have been few and far between, but I'd rather them be solid memorable albums such as these, than a forgettable flash in the pan.
I hope that listeners will look beyond the pop 80's star with a checkered history and rediscover an artist.

George Michael has always been ballsy; even when in Wham!, he was a perfectionist who refused to suffer the banality of the music business, forcing his way to the production boards and doing what he does best: crafting immortal records. Ten years before TLC, he signed himself into slavery with a small and greedy label, knowing that the power of his success would sooner or later attract a bigger label (with bigger lawyers...) to pull him out of it. Then when Sony wanted to dictate marketing obligations (despite the fact that the artist usually pays for such things as well as having to endure them), he took them on, too, knowing full well he could lose but needing to get the air cleared. When "the incident" occurred, he made lemonade (and one of the best damn club records of the decade, make that video, too!) from a lemon situation. (Note-I meant nothing by "making lemonade" but it's too good to pass) In the process he "one-upped" Sony enough that they wanted him back after the much publicised split. They got him back, but I'll tell you i know it wasn't on the cheap! Despite the fact that George was clinically depressed and feeling creatively dry at the time, he dutifully fulfilled his obligations to Dreamworks with a sublime, understated effort that will hold great catalogue value for that label in years to come. He doesn't hold a grudge, he just wants to create his art HIS way and get the same respect he gives. Which is really where "Patience" comes in...

George has collected thoughts and observations over the last few years and applied his genius talent for writing and recording to a savory and substantial assortment of musical vignettes which run the gamut in terms of music, politics, and places in life.

This album is an interesting one. I have listened to George Michael ever since he first sang Wham Rap! and I must say that this ablum is one of the most interesting he has written. In this album I think the lyrical content is maybe not as strong as his ealier album Older or even some of the tracks on Listen without Prejudice. However I still love this album. It has a fantastic track that is just awesome in "Amazing", along with many beautiful ballads that need repetitive listening before you understand where they are coming from.
The weakest song is "Shoot the Dog", which is not bad but in this company it looks somewhat out of place. If you are new to George Michael I would say try Listen Without Prejusice, Older and then listen to Patience. It will make more sense that way, as you will see the maturity and progression in his music...
All in all 4.5 out of 5..A great last album.. One not to be missed!!!

George Michael has a voice which touches, motivates, lifts and sometimes chills me depending upon his mood, his lyric and his music. This CD is nothing short of WELCOME and pure ARTISTRY. I was a fan of his in the 80's when he was with WHAM but have become a die-hard fan since he matured and got off the pop train he was riding back then. I have listened to George plaintively, soulfully, and impressively spin his art and he always, always genuinely exposes the listener to his life, emotion and spirit in his music while entertaining, enlightening and helping us to remember the common threads of humanity and nature we all share. He is nothing less than phenomenal on this CD and offers the listener both ballads to cling to and upbeat dance music to move to (either way with Mr. Michael's talent and voice is winning combination) and you are in for a treat.
