Customer Reviews


I first heard this album when I was 10 years old and fell in love with it because my parents played it all the time. I am now 30 years old and every time I hear it, it's like the first time. I listen to the album from beginning to end. All songs are amazing. This album will never get old. Thank you George Michael for timeless music ❤️

WOnderful music

This is some really good stuff. "To be forgiven," "The Strangest Thing," and "Older" are fantastic tracks. Recommended!

Appropriately Titled Mature Album

"Older" is my most favorite George Michael album. With its relevatory lyrics set among engaging Brazilian bossa nova rhythms.
The first single and opening track, "Jesus to a Child" is a beautiful and complicated ode to the transitioning of his Brazilian lover to that big devastating disease, with a small name, that defined a lot of the 80s. Its drone-like beauty was a worldwide smash while the now defunct Dreamworks Records struggled to get American radio even slightly interested in playing it. Once an MTV staple, MTV, sometimes known as the world's largest radio station, stayed away from the equally complicated but compelling music video.
It was like "Fastlove", another provocative song and video, was the first American single. It wasn't. However, its well done visuals fit perfectly into the MTV mode so it did get reasonably good rotation.
Still, programmers dare not truly listen to its lyrical content are it probably would have been banned. Nearly any sexually hormonal being that danced to it, especially gay men, found it to be anthemic. It remains one of my favorite songs and videos today. After "Jesus to a Child", it was the next video I played on Vevo's "George Michael Tribute".
While nearly 20 million fans embraced "Faith" as their favorite, for me "Older" is the creme de la cre'. He became more than another MTV Icon (an award he should have won, if he didn't).
Other songs like the title track and "Star People" analyzed what the word "superstar" had become.
He switches back to his relationship with his partner in the beautiful "To Be Forgiven".
From this album through "Songs from the Last Century" to "Patience" to his last album "Symphonica", we experienced life and growth with him.
Once again, thanks to Oprah, more people became aware of what they were missing out on and the depths of his soul.

George Michael was the biggest British pop star of the 1980s, spinning a series of infectiously catchy pop singles into global stardom that saw him sell over 100 million albums worldwide. Blessed with good looks, a fine voice, and a knack for writing engaging melodies that worked well with dance-friendly rhythms, Michael became the rare teen sensation who matured into a respected star as an adult, though his life after achieving pop icon status was not without personal and creative challenges.
