  • So today I was watching a lot of George Michael Interviews and reading old interviews about his career in the US back in the 90s. His solo albums from Faith - Patience were a success across EU but the last two Older and Patience weren't in the USA.

    George said he left the US around 1991 because of fame and then took Sony to court etc etc we all know the typical story.

    So my questions to his American fans if there are any on this website. How much did his popularity decline in the US after LWP Vol 1 just out of curiosity ?

    EU fans can answer and offer their prescriptive if they want

    • i gave Older another try today... It still sucks IMO, too much filler, sounds like he's high, the majority of the songs, weak vocal performances, production is too samey. The only good songs IMO are Jesus To A Child, Older, Fast Love and You Have Been Loved.

      The damage was done by then. 1984-1992 was George in his prime

        I think Older had some success. I believe it was the bathroom incident that really hurt his career here.

          Apparently Older failed in the US, from my experience his US fans have told me they never heard of the album until that compilation album or years somehow.

          • His Instagram has teased something Older-related coming later in the year and many are speculating a 25 year anniversary vinyl.

              I wouldn't get too excited... I have a feeling they might announce something completely different which isn't Older related. Cant trust these estates now lol

                idk looking at wiki, in the US, it was a top ten platinum album that yielded two top ten gold-certified singles, so it's not like it flopped.

                  His string of hits from 1984 through until probably 2004-ish is the most impressive streak of hits in UK chart history IMO.

                  The last 10 years have been criminally quiet, primarily due to the issues he's experiencing in his personal life. But if he can ever get close to THIS level of epicness, I'll be ecstatic! [can't believe that's 10 years old]
                  I agree with this, his UK chart reign from 84 - 04 was amazing, in fact across EU to be honest

                    Funny how his singles were more successful in the US than in the UK from 1987 to 1990 but from the mid-90s onwards it was the other way around.
                    according to George, his radioplay stopped after he took on Sony... So it'd make sense to be honest why from 1996-04 he was gaining hits in the EU scene more than the US

                    • Radio 2 have been counting down his best songs since 1pm with contributions from celebrity fans and friends, I’m going to listen back another time in full as I’ve only just tuned in.

                      One More Try followed by You Have Been Loved, two beautiful songs. He really was special and made his debut in the UK charts 40 years ago this year.

                      • Anything from 1984-1992 he could do no wrong. Later? Meh with a few songs
