Honestly, there isn't a song on this album that isn't a highlight. This album is certainly George Michael's strongest of his discography, and each track is built well enough that it can be retooled into a club banger (because this happened already)..and the under-appreciated Part 2 of I Want Your Sex legitimately slaps, with its big horns. Monkey was a powerhouse sleeper hit followed by Kissing a Fool, with its sexy-suave swing beat.

Unforgettable pop album. The one in which GM combines the commercial touch of Wham! with his artistic aspirations, which will be further developed in his later works. The mixture in here originates the almost perfect pop meets r&b album

El tipo de algún que me gusta todito. Obviamente todo el sonido ochentero y pues a riesgo de decir una babosada: michaeljacksonesco. Hace mucho no escuchaba el hitazo "Faith". Hasta las baladas me gustaron, la voz de GM es virtuosa pa'l pop. Mis canciones fav fueron ambas partes de "I Want Your Sex" y "Monkey", grandes beats. En fin, fan. 10/10.

Faith the song is a banger \"That's all I wanted But sometimes love can be mistaken for a crime That's all I wanted Just to see my baby's blue eyes shine\" lost on people at the time but nice subtle lyric there I love how he does his own backing vocals throughout I want your sex was described by himself as bad prince but a good song, would not think this came out in the 80s as a pop song, great long song or 2 part song " That the gods believe in nothing So with empty hands I pray" Huge departure from the subject matter of a wham album

Certainly not my usual style of music. And I thought I would only recognize the title track. But I did recognize a couple other tracks in it. Overall I'm not sure I have much to say about this album. It's very 80s, and George Michael is a great singer, but it's really not my style and doesn't hit as hard as say Michael Jackson. But it's a great album for what it is. It's interesting that the Spotify version makes it look as though 'A Last Request' is the last song on the original version, rather than 'Kissing a Fool.' Listening to Kissing a Fool, it's pretty clear in my mind that it's meant to be a closing track. It one of my favorites on the album because of the big Elvis-esque impact it has, reminding me of Elvis' "Can't Help Falling in Love With You". A Last Request doesn't work nearly as well as a finale, and I'd consider it one of the weakest songs on the album as a whole if you include it.

Classics week continues! Going into this, I could only remember the title track, which is such a timeless jam. I never picked up on the Bo Diddley influence before today! Some other fantastic songs on here too. The fact that he produced this entirely on his own is CRAZY, and only one co-writer on one song, I love albums like that. Some of it is undeniably goofy though, especially that "I Want Your Sex" song.....that's a doozy. Great album though! Great job George Michael! Every time I hear your name I think of Michael Cera! Favorite tracks: Faith, One More Try, Father Figure, Kissing a Fool. Album art: Very strong. He's tormented as hell, you can tell by how dramatically he's attempting to bury his well-groomed face in his leather jacket. Jokes aside, I do like this one. 4/5

This is a classic I remember listening to all the time with Dad. He had this CD going in the car and we would jam to Faith and Father Figure but there were a few others I remembered as well like One More Try. I think this may be the only George Michael content I've ever heard unless their is a song from another album but I really enjoyed listening to this one. Great album art as well.

Normally I dislike late 80s synth sounds, but I feel like they fit weirdly well on this record. A lot, lot of bangers on this record. I just feel like two songs ("Monkey", "Look At Your Hands") pale a little bit when compared to the rest of the record, despite the fact that they've got pretty strong hooks. Favorite tracks: "Father Figure", "Faith", "Kissing a Fool", "One More Try"

You know you've got something special when you have an album that's outselling MJ and Prince at the time, nonetheless one of the best selling albums in the US. Faith is a mature journey of exploring sexuality and vulnerability as a male in a stark contrast from the approach that glam rock and pop at the time was taking, while also coated in the not-so-subtle internal struggle that GM was having with his own sexual identity. He pushes boundaries by making light around the taboos of sex and religion that conservatives were afraid the youth of the time were "falling into". The self-titled lead track itself is a timeless, fun piece that gets you energized, and remains one of his best to this day. The rest of the record definitely sounds dated, albeit fun and enjoyable, but doesn't hold up against the longevity against the MJ and Prince records that George wanted to rival. You're definitely getting one of the best pop records of the 80's, but it's cursed with staying a product of its time. Favorite Song: Faith Least Favorite: Hand to Mouth

👍

Ahhh, George Michael.... I've heard that there's no such thing as bad publicity, however with songs titled 'Look at Your Hands', 'Hand to Mouth' and 'Hard Day', it's difficult to listen to this album without thinking about GM getting arrested for jerking off in that Beverly Hills park. Regardless, this is a great album and I think it's one of those that has only gotten better with time... and a little exposure. ;)

I’ve had this album in my car when I was 17 and bought it because I liked the hits, but listening to it in full again I’ve realized how much more there is to love. I really enjoyed A Last Request and Hand to Mouth with this listen. The only track I wasn’t crazy about was I Want Your Sex pt 1. But by far my favorite song from Georgie is Kissing a Fool.

This is a heck of an album. It’s front loaded with the hits…which we’re MONSTER hits when they were release and have stayed in regular radio rotation since. The rest of the record is so eclectic and interesting. George Michael’s vocals are heavily produced, but it work well with the context of the music. This deserves to be mentioned in the conversation of best albums of the 80s.

Probably the best cringe album i’ve ever heard (so far..) In my view the arc of the story in this album begins with the church organ in the beginning. It seems to symbolize an almost cartoonish image of george michael immediately falling in love with a girl at first sight…. and desperately wanting to have sex with her lol. The title track seems to be him rehearsing what he wants to say, before he goes up to meet her. The following song is him actually talking to her but telling her what he thinks she wants to hear. George Michael’s adolescent horniness then gets the best of him and he confesses that he mainly just wants to have sex with her in a lyrically cringey, yet electric 2 part song as he faintly reassures her he also loves her. He realizes he messed up and before the conversation is over, he submits his final pleas for her on One More Try. GM fails and spirals down a dark path where he blames her for all of his short comings because she didn’t give him a chance (or bang him). Followed by views on society that seem to blame women not giving attention to those who need/demand it for their ill effects on society. Mainly Jimmy who goes on a shooting spree, and then a woman who lost her mother (and received no attention) and in turn became a prostitute. Monkey paints a picture of a man and woman in a relationship but the woman has an addiction. I interpret this as a metaphor for GM’s love interest being interested in a man who’s giving her the runaround, a mirror image of what GM believes is happening to him. He’s turned off by this and gives up. Kissing A Fool seems to have GM encounter this same woman, years later after the prine of her life. GM sees how she ended up as a waste, and reminds her that she shouldn’t have listened to the people in her circles that told her not not give him a chance. He attempts to reassure her that their lives would be much happier than they currently are if she just had a little faith. Though it seemed like GM had made peace with how everything turned out, the story takes a dark turn on the last track. He goes back to his horny ways, and wants another chance at having sex with her, despite all of the events that transpired. GM is sitting in a bar watching her, waiting for the gin to hit, and wants to make sure her car keys don’t end up in her hand. Sounds like it’s about making sure she’s safe at first, but then he says he’s a gentleman, but even gentlemen can only stand so much. Pretty fucking dark George Michael. This album is pretty dark and lyrically cringeworthy throughout the middle and latter portions despite the upbeat and happy intro/title track “Faith”. “One More Try” is also a beautiful cut. Lyrically I’d have to give this a 2, however the man can sing at a high level and the production is top-tier throughout. I gotta say the execution really brings it up a lot. 4/5, best cringe album i’ve ever heard

Me parece que es un excelente álbum pop, especialmente para la época, en la que George Michael estaba en la cima de su popularidad y podía vender, sin un gramo de pena, las jaladas hipócritas de "I Want Your Sex" (¿partes 1 y 2? chale) y "Father Figure" o el dance de "Monkey" y de todos modos serían hits. Muy rescatables por otro lado "Faith" y "Kissing a Fool". Creo que es la epítome de pop ochentero en muchos sentidos: Un sex symbol que resulta ser gay, cantando acerca de ser figura paterna y de que el sexo es mejor cuando es uno a uno; además es griego pero ni quien lo note porque se comporta como británico y lo aman en USA.

Como decía al hablar de Duran Duran, sí había buen pop en los 80s y esta es una buena muestra de eso. Un disco que se siente... elegante, pero no sobrio, la palabra correcta quizá no se puede traducir y tendría que ser "slick." No hay mucho que decir excepto que destila esa esencia de synthpop de los 80s muy bien hecho; sus sencillos se volvieron en clásicos indelebles y con un solo disco creció exponencialmente a cualquier cosa que hubiera logrado hacer previamente con Wham, se volvió una verdadera superestrella de inmediato. A mi gusto personal no, nunca va a ser mi género, ni es el tipo de pop que me llama y es un sonido que incluso tomando la nostalgia se oye ya, quizá justo por ser tan emblemático de toda la música de masas de la época, un poco anticuado, no es algo que vaya a volver a escuchar constantemente, pero me alegra haberlo hecho al menos esta vez. No fue difícil de escuchar y es apreciable, hasta para quienes no tenemos gusto por el género, la calidad que tiene; impresionante que no solo haya escrito todo sino que también haya sido el productor de todo el disco. No mucho más que decir un disco excelente para lo que es, aunque yo no sea su público objetivo.

George Michael con su primer trabajo en solitario. Después de dejar Wham la expectación era máxima. Y finalmente, Faith fue un gran éxito. Referente de la música pop de los años 80 George Michael construyó un disco muy explosivo al principio pero que pierde gas al final. Memorable Faith con esos órganos que de repente dan paso a una serie de Guitarras... ouuu yeah! ¡Estás escuchando Faith jejeje Baaabyyyy!. Father Figure es un trabajo pop impecable con unos coros muy bien conjuntados. Y después de estas dos canciones llegamos al "I want your Sex", algo más de 9 minutos de canción que dieron para hablar, bailar, ligar en una discoteca a finales de los 80. Para finalizar este gran comienzo de disco hay que nombrar "One More Try", una balada lacrimógena al más estilo Prince. A partir de aquí el trabajo es correcto pero nada destaca tanto como para ser reseñado. Quizá Kissing a Fool, otra de esas baladas pero esta vez al piano con un ritmo Jazz pausado y relajado. Si fuera por las 4 primeras canciones estaría cerca del 5 (4,5 quizá) pero el final no tiene ni mucho menos el nivel de las primeras canciones.

George Michael had a great voice. These songs are the epitome of pop music. Just pure ear candy and accessible melody. It's an album that screams Prom (Aside for "I Want Your Sex," although in all honesty, that's fair game too).

Our 5th grade teacher used to let us play cassettes in class every now and then, and you bet your sweet ass this was on repeat. The boys supplied Poison, Def Lepard, Motley Crue and probably Bon Jovi; the girls brought the Dirty Dancing soundtrack and George Michael. What a crazy time to be alive! Anywho, listening to this now it strikes me as a tale of two halves. Those first four songs are pretty tight (I genuinely like “One More Try”), but it’s a drop off after that. “Monkey” feels like a blatant rip off of “Relax” by Frankie Goes to Hollywood and, as mentioned, it’s hard to imagine this album at all if Prince never existed. Still, it’s all really listenable and I get why the hits were big as shit. Sad that he left the earth when he did. There ain’t no joy for an uptown boy, after all.

Faith the song is exactly 3:16 long. My first thought on listening to this is that, goddam, Faith is a catchy motherfucker. Has anyone mashed this up with Prince's Kiss? Anyway, the other thing I think about is how GM had to hide who he was through all this. At least, when this album came out, he wasn't out. Which seems pretty ridiculous looking back on it. But that must've been fucking horrible. But as far as 80s pop albums go, there are some heavy hitters on here. There are also some very slight, forgettable tunes.

Not too badly aged; some of the tunes, especially the first tracks, are still very catchy. Still, George Michael (RIP way too early!) is better in a "best of" compilation than an individual album; it's not like there's a unifying thread across the tracks here.

2nd time around with this album. Still enjoyable Admittedly nothing on it comes close to the first three songs but the whole album is listenable ... just not my style otherwise would score higher 3 stars

I knew many of the songs on this album, just from listening to the radio in the '80s. Not really my thing, but it is all very well done.

Decent pop record; the monogamy is sexy felt forced, like just be horny and chill!! There's nothing wrong with being a horn dog! Funky production, especially on I Want Your Sex pt. 1 & 2

Jebeno. Jako je trendovski za to vrijeme i to se čuje, pri kraju se dosta pokvari, ali činjenica je da na njemu ima pjesama koje nikad neće ostariti. Da bar danas više takve trajnije pop glazbe.

In terms of songs I'll go out of my way to listen to again, that's probably only the title track. But I found the American standard-style of Kissing a Fool intriguing- I'm not aware of too much of that from pop stars in the 80s.

Never heard the whole album before, which is the point of doing this! Singles were clearly the catchiest songs, some of the filler was fairly silly. He was a great singer, but I would have liked to hear him sing more rock than pop

George has got a nice voice, and there are some good arrangements here, especially in the back half. Overall, though, it's an unengaging experience. Thankfully, not in a boring way: Even after almost an hour I wasn't checking to see how much was left. But after the opening tracks, which come across as nothing more than a very lame attempt to shock the audience, I couldn't stop noticing the unimpressive writing. I don't think there's a case for this being offensively bad pop music, but it loses me on every other level.

While the title track is undeniably dope, nothing else on here really held my attention. Sleazy style over content.

I feel like I'm listening to a 90's boy band. Respect where respect is due, clearly George Michael's music influenced those acts, and I can objectively recognize this is good pop music, but I am in no way feeling this. It's not my music.

Starts off well with the leading singles, but quickly becomes more average. The songs are average, lyrics lack substance, and the only thing saving them is good production and the vocal performance. The album does not excite me for more George Michael.

I was so glad when I saw that this was the remastered version. I just relished in the way the synthesizers were so damn crisp and bold! I could feel their electric vibe in my toes. Not everybody feels it but everybody should. With a title like "Faith" I really expected some wholesome religious based tunes but was shocked when I realized a lot of the songs have to do with ese ee ex. I expected more from a man with a cross hanging from his ear lob. Going with two stars just cause I wanna save one star In case a new kids on the block album pops up

I was soooo excited when this started. And then after all the fun funk of the brass and bass at the end of the quintessential sex-pressure song, it just petered out. But I do love me “Kissing A Fool.” The rest is disappointing.

I listened to this on a plane with crappy headphones, but I don't think it mattered. I'm not a fan of all the treble and the fact that all the music sounds like it was played on a Casio keyboard. The subject matter also got old after awhile - I get it, George liked to have sex. Still - some good songs. Father Figure (although super creepy) has a nice hook. Faith is a classic pop song. It's not "bad" - it's just not good.

This album had some amazing singles, classic George Michael songs that I've always loved. But the rest of it is so meh. It comes out strong with Faith, Father Figure, and I Want Your Sex, but the rest of it just felt like filler.

I know that is my fault, but I don't like almost anything from George Michael. It sounds like a fake in some way that I can't explain. On another hand, listening to his whole album was a good experience. Nothing really changed in my opinion, but I can enjoy a little bit more when I get some of his songs in some random playlist now when I know that this is really not my kind of sound

A mi George Michel ni fu ni fa. És un bon cantant, té alguns hits inapelables, però un àlbum sencer se'm fa bola i m'acaba cansant. Entenc l'èxit comercial en el seu moment, el seu canvi d'imatge i l'impacte de segons quines cançons (també en bona part per les lletres). Però no puc acabar-lo.

George Michael, what is/was wrong with you, dude? There is so much to unpack in the transition from "Father Figure" to "I Want Your Sex." Come again, George? You talkin' to me? You can't have my sex. Especially with those awful lyrics. For 9 minutes and 17 seconds!? "I will be your father figure... I will be your preacher teacher," into "I'm not your father/ I'm not your brother." And who or what is "One More Try" about? Hoping the teacher referenced there is an older partner, and not an actual school teacher. Though considering the preceding songs, all bets are off. "Faith" stands the test of time, and holds up very well, but I feel bad for it. Even after you get through the weird stuff, there's a string of less offensive songs that really wear out their welcome with 4-5 minute lengths. "Faith" was completely forgotten about after what followed, unfortunately.

Kolejny album od pana Michaela Geogrga, czyli od czlonka jednej z najpopularniejszych band lat 80, czyli WHAMu, w ciagu 5 lat dzialalnosci wypuscili tyle synthowo popowej muzyki i udalo im sie trafic tyle hiciorcow, co wiekszosci artystow nie ustrzeli w ciagu dziesiecioleci dzialalnosci artystycznej, ale jak to z geniuszami nie chca spoczywac na laurach, wiec pan george na samym szczycie whamowej kariery doeszedl do wniosku, ze splituja bande i bedzie robil muzyke samemu, wynikiem tego splitu jest wlasnie faith, jest tym wszystkim czym byl wham i czyms jeszcze, a tym czyms jest odrobienie lekcji z pana jacksona i princea, bo ten album doslownie wyciska ekstrakt thrillerowy, dodaje do niego purple raina, a persona dzordzowa wnosi ducha ultra czada lat 80, synthowe brzmienie, polaczone z chwytliwymi popowymi tekstami, ktore oczywiscie ociekaja tym co najlepiej sie sprzedaje, a wiec seksem, juz z samej okladki pan george atakuje iscie jojowa, nie jest to jedyna rzecz ktora wniosl na plyte, bo jako geniusz multiinstrumentalista gra zarowno basiki i klawisze, produkuje, miksuje, aranzuje traki, wiec tak jak na poprzednim numerze ktory mialem okazje sluchac one man show, do tego wykorzystanie XX muzykow studyjnych slychac na kazdym traku, ale tym razem utrzymane jest to w bardziej komercyjnych ramach wizji, pan dzordz chyba nie powtorzyl nigdy sukcesu whamowego, ale jednak sprzedal sie dobrze nawet solowo, ale ta plyta nie oferuje nic ciekawego czego juz nie slyszalo sie u czarnych funkowo soulowych artystow, bo pan george to jeden z tych farbowanych lisow, ktory pomimo swojej bialosci tworzy muzyke iscie czarna, ale jak kopiowac, to tylko najlepszych w biznesie, zeby nie zgubic tak cennego picka na plejke leci tytulowy faith, ktory brzmi jak cos co paasowaloby swietnie na ending jojolionowy, moze za 20 lat okaze sie, ze mialem racje i akurat trafi na faith

I guess I'm not the right audience? I don't know, I feel like the songs just blended together to form an amalgamation of the want/need of love described in a way I didn't like. Don't get me wrong, I love "Careless Whisper" (who doesn't?) but this just felt flat to me. I can get past lyrics, but the song structures felt similar and uninspiring. "Kissing a Fool" was my favorite, it felt the most refreshing and fun out of the bunch, but my favorite list stops there. Other than one specific setting that we all know this would work well for, I don't know why you would listen to this doing anything else but that. Not my thing, but don't let me dissuade you from returning to this to help stoke a fire burning between you and someone you love.
