No doubt about it, this is a bit of an "odds and sods" collection. Released in 1986, there were really only three "new" songs on it - "The Edge of Heaven", "Battlestations" and "Where Did Your Heart Go" (which itself was a cover of a song by the band Was (Not Was), and was the band's last single, released in early '87).
The others include "A Different Corner", which was a George Michael single, issued and listed as a single under his name only in early 1986, and which had charted before this album was released.
"I'm Your Man" had also run up and back down the charts before this album came out, having been released in '85. The version on here is longer than the single version. "Wham! Rap '86" is a "re-make" of a song from the group's debut album, in which George claims to have "street credibility" (!) I like the song, but I don't what street he thinks he has credibility on, other than maybe Sesame Street. 2Pac he ain't.
"Blue" is a live version of a song that was originally released around the time of the band's debut album, and "Last Christmas" is from 1984, which was two years before this album.
Overall, the album is pretty good and bridges the gap between the overly-sugary sound of "Make It Big" and George's more "serious" songs and sound on "Faith". The sexual overtones in "Battlestations" give a hint of what was to come with songs like "I Want Your Sex" and "Father Figure" and "The Edge of Heaven" has a flavor similar to "Look at Your Hands" and "Hard Day".
In the alternative, you could buy the import album called "The Final", which was the UK version of this album and is a true greatest hits collection.

I would compare listening to this album to drinking saltwater. If you are desperate enough to try either, then you are obviously in some sort of drought. I would actually prefer the latter for reasons of taste and digestibility. Since I did grow up in the 80s, I did learn some of these songs before I had any sense of taste. That's my sad excuse for having purchased this tripe. Ignore the reviews that give this album 4 or 5 stars. Do not proceed with any intention of buying this drool. There are a few hits that are not obviously offensive, don't misunderstand me, but not aside from the first and last songs. But to avoid vagaries, let's be specific, shall we? The title "Blue (Live in China)" says either that George Michael is self-grandeurizing a lá 'look how many people love us all over the world', or he is hinting that he had to go all the way to a non-English speaking country to warble such pathetic lyrics after saying in his pompous version of the British accent, "The next number...is a song that's very personal to me...." Another troubling trend that is carried over from the otherwise pleasant "Make It Big" album is how the boys don't seem to understand that they're making silly pop music and the songs should be between three and four minutes. I guess by leaning on the keyboards for an extra minute at the end of "Last Christmas" and repeating themselves ad infinitum they avoided writing more than the bare minimum eight songs per album.
Being critical of this is like denouncing fascism, I mean, this is just 80s dance pop, but it's continually futile attempts at significance makes it SEEM so labored. By all means, skip this and buy one of the imported Greatest Hits albums or "Make It Big".

I bought this last year, partly because of the low price and partly because I wanted the song "Last Christmas" on CD. I had the chance to listen to this CD last weekend from beginning to end, and here are my opinions of each song on order:
"Edge of Heaven": I really like this song. It reminds me of "Wake Me Up Before...". I really danceable song.
"Battlestations": I didn't like this one at first(first thought it was about battle ships). But after listening to the whole song for the first time, I liked it. The lyrics are more solo-George than Wham.
"I'm Your Man": The part where Andrew crashes the motorcycle was VERY cheesy, but it's a good song nonetheless. But while I was looking at the lyrics, I came across an interesting line: "So why waste time/with the other guys/when you can have mine" then the line "Baby your friends do not need to know! ". Was he pointing out his sexual preference at that time but no one noticed?
"Wham Rap '86": I heard this one before I heard the original, so I lean towards this one more. If it makes sense, this was a more "mature" "Wham Rap". But the original is the better one to dance to.
"A Different Corner": To me, this doesn't sound much like a Wham song(like "Battlestations"). It might explain why it's on George's solo CD.
"Blue(live in China)":It has a nice beat and it sounds good for a live song.
"Where Did Your Heart Go?": I think this was a pretty good song as well. I got a good laugh out of the line "We'll share a rusty can of corn". The sax gives it a nice touch.
"Last Christmas": I think this was one of the best Christmas songs of the 80s. It also doubles as a sad love song.
