    awesome

    I highly recommend this album. The majority of the songs here on this album should have made it on the #1 chart here in the US, or in Europe.....

    Adroit & masterful

    Even if you don't like George Michael (and it seems there are a fair number of reasons not to) at least half the songs on this are astonishing pieces of pop artistry.
