This albums is fun and funky. George and Andrew's first record is pure pop. Classic hits like Bad Boys, Wham Rap and Young Guns (go for it)were early inclinations that George Michael was going to be a force to reckon with in writing and recording popular music!! There isn't a bad song on this album!! If you loved George Michael when he was with Wham! or as a solo artist your collection isn't complete with out this CD. Definitely 5 stars!!

I bought this album when it was out many years ago on LP and loved it, I always felt Wham were a lot more than just a boy band for starters George Michael did everything, from write, play and produce.
So why only 3 stars, well I am all for adding demo's, lost tracks, b sides to a CD or on a bonus disc, however what I don't like is the feel of the original album ruined, by placing instrumental tracks in-between the original track listing, so you get three surplice instrumental in-between tracks which ruin the flow of the album, yes you can programme your CD to skip them, but you should not have too, they should have been placed at the end of the original album. Anyway rant over, apart from that it was a great album.

When I first heard 'Young Guns' - Wham's first hit, it sort of went over my head and I can't say it meant very much to me at all. I didn't find George Michael very attractive either (as did so many others) and Andrew did nothing for me - but then I did go for older guys. (still do!) Though I have to say; I stumbled upon a pic. of Andrew recently, and he now looks GORGEOUS!) However; when I heard 'Wham Rap', I did like that - and 'Bad Boys' even more, and so there you have it!

This album really only has eight tracks (more on CD - and I hate it when they add bonus tracks to CDs and take an album out of its original format - particularly when those so-called bonus tracks are simply 'repeated' songs called 'remixes' - rubbish...)

Anyway; ignoring those 'niggles'; this is a good album and will have many reminiscing to their hearts content!

Have fun!!

NOTE: I enjoyed Pepsi & Shirlie who left the band and had an album of their own - it was good!

By The Scribbler on 25 Jan. 2015

Wham!, Fantastic, is the first album I owned as a teenager: a Christmas present from Gran and Grandad, in 1983. Prior to this I had already purchased the singles Bad Boys (1983) and Club Tropicana (1983). I used to get my vinyl records from Woolworths on a Saturday, back when the store would have the top twenty 7" vinyl singles up on the wall, so you could browse that weeks chart and choose you favourites, see how they were doing. They did the same with the albums. I knew that Fantastic was going to be a worthwhile addition to my then small record collection on the strength of the singles.

Most of the album is pure 1980s synth-pop with catchy but often repetitive choruses. Wham Rap! (Enjoy What You Do) - the boys debut single - showcases George Michael's attempt at rap, which is actually not that bad: the single reached #8 on the UK chart, after a second re-issue. Young Guns (Go For It!) and Bad Boys peaked at #3 and #2 respectively and, like Wham Rap!, the song lyrics centred on government, unemployment and the DHSS system, clearly aiming at connecting with the 1980's youth living under a Thatcher government; their pretty boy looks further ensured a large fan base of screaming teenage girls.

Club Tropicana (1983), which reached #4, is the only one of the four singles not socially or politically motivated. Michael and Andrew Ridgeley are dressed as airline pilots in a video filmed in Ibiza; they are also seen lounging around by the poolside, taking in the sun rays. The song - like its video - is clearly a dig at the 18-30 package holiday crowd that was getting popular by the 1980s. It is the only ballad out of the four singles - well ballad-esque - for the song is still quite jaunty and trumpet-driven. Club Tropicana sounds more like the Wham!

May I say how impressed I am with my purchase? I was initially attracted by the refreshing youthful defiance of the two leather clad and obviously 'street-wise' individuals on the front. After a listen or two, one realises that this is a collection to stimulate and gladden. I must congratulate Andrew and George for engendering such exciting and entertaining musical ideas. The compact disc begins with a song entitled 'Bad Boys.' This is a poignant song in which the protagonist confronts his loving parents. He complains that their understandable concerns for his welfare and education count for nothing on the dangerous streets where he spends his adolescence. Obviously, this is misconceived and can be attributed to a youthful exuberance. The next song, 'Ray of Sunshine' could refer to a happy start to the day or, arguably, to a friend of one of the songwriters. This is another cheerfully upbeat song which segues neatly into 'Love Machine.' The self-designated 'Love Machine' addresses his girlfriend and claims that he will not function in this capacity for anyone but she. To me, this loyalty is touching; one might add that such sentiments would go some way to reassure the young lady in question. I must say, I don't much care for 'Wham Rap (Enjoy What You Do)' in part, due to its juvenile posturing and, to my ears,often contrived vocal stylings. Fortunately, we're soon back on tip-top form with 'Club Tropicana'. This aforementioned nightspot sounds an inviting and relaxing place, yet I fear it may be a work of the writer's imagination - such an establishment would not be viable economically. 'Nothing Looks the Same in the Light' is a cheerful enough lyric but belies the author's rather shallow grasp of Physics and, thus, need not detain us here.Read more ›
