I've been looking forward to receiving a copy of this recording of George Michael's 2011/2012 `Symphonica' tour for some time. I only saw George live once, when he toured the States in the late 2000s, but it was an excellent show. "Symphonica" is an excellent album, but you need to be aware what it is before you purchase it.

The Symphonica Tour was an orchestral tour and you're not going to be hearing "Faith," "Freedom" or really any of George's pop/dance hits. What you will hear are several of George's ballads and a number of standards. As long as you are aware of this, you'll likely enjoy this album. George's tunes include "Through," "Praying for Time," "John and Elvis Are Dead," "One More Try," "Cowboys and Angels" and a very welcome and fantastic version of "Different Corner" from Wham's final album. Probably the fastest tune on the album is a rousing rendition of "Feeling Good." My personal favorite is George's new song, a cover of "Let Her Down Easy," an old Terence Trent D'Arby tune. As a long time Elton John fan, I also really enjoy George's version of "Idol" from Elton's `Blue Moves.'

I only have two complaints about the album. The first is: there were several other songs in his setlists that I really would have liked to have been on the album, possibly a deluxe edition. Prior setlists included "True Faith," "Roxanne," "Kissing a Fool," "Going to Town," "It Doesn't Really Matter," "Russian Roulette," "You Have Been Loved," "Love is a Losing Game," "Where I Hope You Are," "Song to the Siren," "Recluse," and "You and I."

My second complaint is related to the first, this album direly needs some "lighter fare" to break it up. I find listening to it from start to finish a little difficult given the solemnity of most of the tunes.

I downloaded this album when it came out on Tuesday and haven't been able to stop listening to it. It's filled with both George Michael classics as well as well done covers. Whether you love the hits like One More Try or go a little deeper to A Different Corner, I'm pretty sure this album has most of what his fans love and crave.
His voice is flawless on it, the change ups done on a few of the songs give a new personality to each of them. He remains one of the best live performers that I've seen in my life time, and this album is a prime example of how amazing he is in concert.
I love that we have something new to listen to from him, I look forward to the new music he is working on, and I would highly recommend this album to anyone who likes George Michael.

It's not that George Michael is done as a great pop star, he still is that, but he has matured into something more, a great artist and musician. For someone who always loved his song Kissing a Fool which was a great jazz number, this is no surprise. Hearing his fine live rendition of My Baby Just Cares for Me cements this affinity for the genre. Long before George's vault from the closet, his love songs spoke to gay men in particular if only for their their use of gender neutral pronouns. His song Through which opens the album is a beautiful example of this and can apply to any sex, it describes love( and for him celebrity) as the human condition it is for all of us. Praying for time has never been a favorite of mine until I listened to the updated version of it on this album, he has become more authentic with age. Nina Simone singing Feeling Good is a classic that is hard to follow, but with a complex orchestration and soaring vocals he makes it his own. He even tips his hat to her in respect, but I am sure she would have loved it. With time George's voice has become richer, deeper, and more evocative. His skills as an excellent songwriter are shown in fresh new renditions of One More Try and Cowboys and Angels. This is a great album for fans and newcomers alike!

OH MY GOODNESS! Where do I begin? I have been a lifetime lover of George and all his music. SUCH a big fan, that when I heard about the Symphonica Tour, I booked tickets to fly and see him in Madrid, Barcelona and Amsterdam - all the way from Seattle, WA. These songs bring back such amazing moments from those live shows. To know that he almost lost his life TWICE in the last few years and yet, STILL sings like an angel & performs with such passion and zest! His tone and perfection touches my soul (and I am not religious).

Through is a favorite song on this album because that was the opener for George's show. All the anticipation, sitting in the audience, staring at that red curtain... and then you hear him. That voice... that magical, perfect voice. Before we can see his beautiful face, we can hear him. And it gives me goosebumps every time I hear it. Lovely.

This album encapsulates how great George sings live. He changes classic songs of both his own, as well as other artists, to keep them unique and relevant. My favorite cover is Going To A Town. That song was powerful to see in person, with the word LOVE burning in the background. Such a wonderful delivery, different than Rufus Wainright's original. Brother Can You Spare a Dime and My Baby Just Cares for Me are upbeat and so much fun. They are great songs to accompany an orchestra / big band. Another favorite is John & Elvis Are Dead. The background visuals from the live performance stay with me when I hear him sing this GM original. Powerful images & fascinating lyrics.

My only wish is that Rihanna's Russian Roulette & Amy Winehouse's Love is a Losing Game could be on this masterpiece. But I am sure there were legalities and royalties and copyright issues.......
