This album is a masterpiece! From the energetic upbeat Freedom! '90 to the musically enchanting They Won't Go When I Go, or the musical wizardry of praying for time there isn't a bad track to be found. George Michael really has come of age with this album. The Lyrics are as fine as you'll find, with the words of praying for time in a league of their own. Whether you want to join in with George in the singing of something to save, or if you want to be drawn almost hypnotically away by mothers pride there is something for everyone. Buy this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the top 5 cd's of the 90's 18 Aug 2000
Format:Audio CD
Without question, in this area of the world, this is the record that had people scratching their heads when it came out. No longer he of the "biker-femme" persona, GM came out (you know what I mean) with an incredible sophomore effort. Serious, vulnerable, so much different than Wham! or "Faith." Most people I know have never even listened to the record (which says a lot about how difficult it is to hear any GM in the States), others doubted it could be anything more than Faith II. Those who gave it a listen were hooked. Even those who despised George from Faith. Even those who don't necessarily like his style. They all had to admit that this is a record that reaches near epic, operatic proportions. "Cowboys and Angels" is the most interesting track, but it is the more radio friendly "Waiting for that Day" that is widely held to be the "song" of the album. Just an opinion, but maybe George was going through some sort of spiritual struggle while writing these songs (and as I understand had just been dumped by Kathy Jeung). Who knows? These last few years have proven that whatever kind of struggle it was, he lost (see LA cop fiasco). This is the George Michael that I want to remember when he retires to the South of France and stops making music.

This Album is outstanding.It is a great example of an artist being able to put what very personal feelings he has and turn those feelings into beautiful song and outstandingly produced music.George Michael has,with this album,created an album that really shows what music is;A medium in which to project ones personal feelings into a beautiful and enjoyable thing.Personal feeling,passion,emotion and heart is what music is about and George just does it with this album.Listen to the words and music and you cant help but feel what George is trying to say.Beautiful.Simon Edwards

5.0 out of 5 stars George's Finest Hour? 15 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD
More than 20 years on, and this album has stood the test of time. It's a masterpiece, and overlooked by many.
George's singing, as always is flawless. In fact, he provides all the vocals on the wonderful 'They Won't Go When I Go'.
If you're in any way curious about George Michael's music, and are unsure where to start, start here. You can go back and visit 'Faith' later on. These are two very different albums, but 'Listen..' is far superior.
Has GM made a better album than LWP? I don't think so, but others have come close -check out 'Older' for some outstanding vocals, and haunting performances, aswell as some subtle dancefloor beats.
Highlights on 'Listen Without Prejudice' for me, are 'Praying For Time', 'They Won't Go When I Go', 'Cowboys and Angels', and 'Mothers Pride'.. but it's hard to pick just those few..

5.0 out of 5 stars George doing what George does best 22 Mar 2006
Format:Audio CD
If like me you have kind of always floated around the outskirts of GM then I would recommend this album as a stern follow up to Faith.
Yes Faith is pop but the melodies are strong and you really need that in your mind when you take on this album.
Firstly this album is GREAT - it is full of different layerings of songs and melodies that just stick in your head all day.
It took me a while to get this album but actually the maturity in just 3 yrs is fabulous. You should also discount the chart placings - the low charting singles was because George was sabotaging his own career in a way - not appearing in videos, having no text on his singles or having text and no pic.
Anyway his artistic views kind of covered the value of the songs and speaking of the songs:
1) PRAYING FOR TIME 5/5 what a cracker of a song - the tip of the iceberg really - if you get this song you will get the album. It is a crashing ballad about opening our eyes to the world. UK #8 - 1st single (B-Side: If You Were My Woman).
2) FREEDOM 5/5 THE song that got me into this album - it was the only song I considered from this album as being worthy for a long time before the rest grew on me. About reflecting on the Wham days. UK #28 - 3rd single.
3)THEY WON'T GO WHEN I GO 4/5 A broody ballad his voice is faultless on this - I love his rendition of this classic, he really shows that he can apply his voice to anything. I just marked it down because it is not a GM composition.
4)SOMETHING TO SAVE 5/5 A cheeky little track in my opinion - acoustic guitar driven pop very upbeat and well just nice (love his high voice around 2:40 over the strings). Seems to deal with not communicating in a relationship. B-Side to Cowboys & Angels UK #45 - 5th Single.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXPOSED . . . 6 Dec 2012
Format:Audio CD
. . . and I'm talking about George Michael's sheer musical talent of course.

This epic was released at the height of George Michael's stardom in 1990, following his first solo album FAITH three years earlier. Intentionally, it was a different direction from 1987 and worlds away from his 1980s collaboration in the mega successful boy band WHAM.

I can only second all the rave reviews here. This must rank as George Michael's best work in my opinion, and one of the best albums ever recorded. Musically and lyrically, every track is pure art, with Heal The Pain easily being my favourite.

It is almost impossible to fault any of this artist's recordings anyway but I strongly recommend you add this particular album to your music collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Whatever happened to volume 2?
Sometimes it's hard to follow up a great début album i.e. 'Faith', but this album for me far outshines that first album, both musically and lyrically. Excellent.
