2008's TwentyFive celebrates George Michael's 25 years in the recording industry by presenting a near perfect collection of highlights from both Wham! and his solo career. For fans, having "Everything She Wants," "Careless Whisper," and "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" on the same collection as "Faith," "Father Figure," and "Freedom! '90" is reason enough to pick this up, but for completists the lack of "I Want Your Sex" and "Kissing a Fool" is just too glaring not to warrant a few grumblings about waiting for his 27th year anniversary to celebrate.

    Still a Masterful Singer-Songwriter

    Personal drama aside, with classics like "Careless Whisper," "Praying for Time," and "Everything She Wants" to his credit, George Michael is still one of the best singer-songwriter's of his generation. In celebration of his twenty-five year recording career, this best of collection features five new songs and coincided with his recent U.S. tour.

    What More Could You Ask For?

    This dvd set is absolutely perfect! George Michael has definitely taken his rightful place as one of the greatest singer/songwriters of modern pop music. This collection includes his early Wham! hits and takes you on a journey with his solo endeavors as well. With the addition of &amp quot As&amp quot , and &amp quot Feeling Good&amp quot , to this well balanced 2 disc set, there is something for all music lovers acquired tastes. George has proven that despite his personal battles, he still has what it takes to deliver the goods...and deliver, he has!!!
