Two CD set from the two time Grammy Award winner who is returning to the music scene with his 2008 album Twenty Five, an extraordinary package containing for the first time ever all of George and Wham's greatest hits plus five new tracks. "An Easier Affair", "This Is Not Real Love", "Heal The Pain" (duet with Sir Paul McCartney), "Understand", and never released before in the US, "As" (featuring Mary J. Blige). In 25 years, George Michael can already look back on more than 80 million in record sales worldwide. He has notched up six No. 1 singles from his debut album, eleven British No. 1 singles, and six No. 1 albums to date.
The last quarter-century has been nothing if not colorful for George Michael. But through all the controversy--the high-profile arrests and audacious videos, the falling-outs and band splits--he has emerged intact as a vital figure on the global pop scene--a fact compounded by his current 25 Live tour and this accompanying Greatest Hits package. Twenty Five is the fourth such collection in Michael's career, though it carries the obvious advantage of being more up to date than 1998's lauded Ladies & Gentlemen and features not only solo material but music from the early Wham! days. As such, it's the most comprehensive anthology yet, featuring upbeat Wham! classics like "Wake Me Up Before You Go Go" and "Freedom" amidst somber solo material like "Praying for Time" and "Jesus to a Child." Spread across two discs (29 songs in total), the collection not only includes a host of evergreen classics but also recent singles "An Easier Affair" and "This Is Not Real Love" (with former Sugababe Mutya Buena) and two unreleased tracks. There are some notable absences from the collection-"I Want Your Sex" and "Kissing a Fool" are two glaring omissions-but it still remains the most comprehensive survey of the artist's legacy to date. --Danny McKenna

The lead single is one of the new songs "An Easier Affair", the other two being "This Is Not Real Love" with Mutya Buena (a former Sugababe) and "Heal the Pain" with Sir Paul McCartney. Of the new ones, my pick is the McCartney track, which seems head and shoulders over the other two.
The tracks that I enjoyed hearing again were the duets - "As" with Mary J. Blige and "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me" with Sir Elton John - plus "Father Figure", "Faith" and of course "Careless Whisper".
From "Careless Whisper" to "Amazing", this is a great addition to any pop music collection, putting most of your favorite George hits in one "basket".
