This one is hard and generally more my preferences than any real indication of quality. Some of his later stuff has better music and more well written songs, but it lacks the excitement of the earlier Wham and pre 1996 stuff.

1. Faith (I know, but this album is great, the energy and the fact every song is a gem)

2. Music from the Edge of Heaven

3. Make it big (Yes I love Wham!)

4. Older (Surprisingly tight)

5. Listen without Prejudice (Overall a great album, but a bit morose and draggy in parts, still I really love Soul Free).

Those 5 are all exceptional, the next are less so.

6. Fantastic - The energy is good, but a lot of this is silly pop songs

7. Patience - Some great songs, but some dithery filler

8. Songs of the Last century - Yuck George what were yer doin?

Haven't heard the swing one or anything else I have missed out.

Collections

1. Twenty Five (I love this and songs like Amazing and Flawless Go to the city)

2. Wham! The Final - all the best bits of Wham! and those 1986 era songs

3. Ladies and Gentlemen the very best of, its good too but haphazard song arrangement and some fillery bits.

Live

1. MTV Unplugged - I got this with 2017's LWP super deluxe

2. Five Live - Meh

Where are the rest? lol

I don't like most of the rest of them. Like everyone else, when the 1990s arrived, a fast song by him became hard to find. Oh, how I hate that horrible decade. lol I took notice to him years later when I saw a video of him in a men's room with a disco ball and house music playing. It was many years into the 1990s though and it sounded like generic house music with nothing about it to make it stand out from anything else at the time. Once acid, trance, or whatever other things started entering house/dance in the mid to late 1990s, it had a completely different sound to it and all of it started sounding alike. When the 2000s arrived, most of it felt like simply background music on the dance floor in which no one knew the names of the songs or the artists but just simply something to play on the dance floor. It wasn't like that in the early 1990s though. Even though the songs weren't on the radio, we knew every song and artist that was played on the dance floor. George was in his adult contemporary mode in that era though and even if he had made house, it would have been a house remix of a regular song and those type of songs always sound generic because they're not house songs to begin with. Kinda like those Prince 12 Inches in the 1990s with house remixes. The club DJs didn't touch them because they were generic.

Oh, really? I thought it was supposed to have "died" on February 3, 1959, when Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and The Big Bopper died in a plane crash...as documented in the song "American Pie" by Don McClean in 1971. lol I played that 45 a lot when I was a kid...
