George has had plenty of hits to fill a 2-CD set, and this collection has all the best: Faith; Careless Whisper; Father Figure; One More Try; Praying for Time; I Knew You Were Waiting (with Aretha Franklin), and more. 29 tracks!
Bathroom escapades aside, there’s no denying that George Michael has been responsible for some of the biggest party jams of the ’80s and ’90s. Have you ever noticed what happens to a room when “Faith” erupts from the speakers? Aside from the funk-fueled “Fastlove,” the material from his most recent album, Older, is well and truly overshadowed here by the megahits from days gone by. The first disc starts off slow, with “Careless Whisper” and his remake of “I Can’t Make You Love Me” the only real high points among otherwise bland ballads. It’s disc 2 that exudes the essence of Michael, with “Fastlove,” “Too Funky,” and “Freedom 90” providing a nonstop dance-athon, and “I Want Your Sex” and “Faith” picking up the slack. The package also includes his rather unexciting (but hugely popular) duets with Queen and Elton John, his perfect pop pairing with Aretha Franklin, and two new tracks. Set aside some serious time for this one, folks. The hits don’t stop. –Rebecca Wallwork
Split into two CDs, “For The Heart” and “For The Feet,” Ladies And Gentlemen highlights the division between raunchy playboy and bland soulboy, both compelled to end every line with “baby” but very different sides of the same beard. —New Musical Express
