    I hope the Wham cd's get remastered as well. Make It Big is without a doubt the worst sounding CD I own (well, maybe "tied" with Prince's Sign O' The Times, that sounds quite bad too). It sounds like an 8-track almost.

    "Faith" is a classic album (even though in the UK he got even bigger in the 90's, "Faith" was his moment of superstardom stateside, he was even bigger than Michael and Madonna at that moment in time) and I'd like to get this in the near-future, it's been screaming for a remaster, and the bonus material sounds like icing.

    Bought this album on Friday and it is still a classic album. Just wish he would record more albums like this and Older.
    An Album that captures a whirl on a drop of water, A face in the heart of a flame, and a soul set free on A Ray Of Light

    I thought that version was horrific when I first heard it, but it grew on me especially because I liked their second album so much.

    Is there a thread discussing GM's sales info? I can't find one, unless I'm not looking hard enough. :-?

    Yes, of course!

    Search for George Michael in the "The Chart Analysis Artists Index" thread, stickied at the top of the Charts Analysis forum, to find it.

    ^The song itself. I've never liked it.

    I dont like the song either and the intro makes me think of that Kungfoo Fighting song. Now, the rest of the album is great.

    Faith isn't among my favourite singles from George at all, but the other singles were mostly great and the album is good and the cover somehow iconic.
    I am not trying to seduce you... Would you like me to seduce you? Is that what you're trying to tell me?
