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".

This album, the final release of WHAM!, has a very 'pieced together' feeling to it. It is easy to tell that George and Andrew were no longer working as a group as most of the new tracks have a definite George feel to them. Of the tracks, there are a few songs which were previously released with nothing to do with this album ("I'm Your Man", "Last Christmas", "A Different Corner", "Wham Rap") leaving only a handful of "new" material. The first "new" single, "The Edge of Heaven" has sort of a sixties feel to it, and still manages to beckon the earlier WHAM! hit "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go". The second, "Battlestations" is a bit of a departure from WHAM!, having more of an electronic feel to it than most WHAM! songs. The rest of the album sounds like a George Michael afterthought. Perhaps songs he was auditioning for 'Faith' but wisely turned down. At either rate, this was definitely the end of WHAM!, the end of the innocence, and the end of an era.

It was apparent by the scruffy jacket photo that George Michael was beginning to shed his lightweight Wham image, and the overtly sexual nature of side one points directly toward Faith and specifically "I Want Your Sex." Growing tired of the sugary sweet Wham image, GM began inserting lines like "there's a place for us in a dirty movie cause no one does it better than me and you" into the pop songs that once only hinted that it was "warm in bed." There is also a slight musical departure here from the previous albums. The opening bars of the title track sound like "Wake Me Up"'s raunchy evil twin, while "Battlestations" and "I'm Your Man" toy with electronic beats and synthesizers while still retaining that "Wham-ish" style.(Note: The bass solo in "I'm Your Man" is an album highlight.)"Wham Rap 86" closes side one and sounds like a parody of the original with more grunts and profanity. The only throwaway track on the album. Side two, labeled the "Cool Side," opens with the shimmering George solo song "A Different Corner" and offers a glimpse into the tour of China with the deeply personal song "Blue." "Where Did Your Heart Go" is lacking lyrically, but musically intriguing. (Hats off to the Was brothers) And "Last Christmas" the seasonal jaunt written in 1984, leaves us with a reminder of the Make it Big days, but also a farewell to those days as Faith would soon prove. Bottom line: if you dig Make It Big or Faith or both, you can't go wrong with this.

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.
