George Michael's Faith sounds like a good Michael Jackson album. It has a lot of swing, a strong vocal performance and a great mixture of funk and disco, but some of the timbres feel dated and somewhat annoying, and the slow paced tracks do not always deliver for me.
It is certainly influential and inventive, trying out interesting concepts, as the Doppler effect passing sounds in Autobahn, as if cars on a highway, but 20 minutes of that grew stale really quick to me.
Really good album! Groovy blues and funky rhythms. It resembles me a bit of Creedence Clearwater Revival.
Love the construction of this album. To me, felt as a narrative of random memories, like opening a souvenir box with a collection of different nostalgic registers.
This was released one day before my anniversary! (22 years before I was born.)
Good album. Also her collabs with Thom Yorke are great.
Massive Attack, at the roots of trip hop, still feel fresh and contemporary, with lots of experimentation and samples serving the purpose of creating an overall trippy and chill atmosphere. Still not better than Mezzanine, in my opinion, but a truly great one.
