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.
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!.
Love 5 songs, like about 6, and skip over a few every time, but still really like the album overall. It a combination of sexy and emotional, ballads and dance.Published 25 days ago by Tammie
