George Michael at his best. He seemed to loose his way the last couple of years with some of the songs he published but this is a spot on CD - love it!!! A few of his old hits, a couple of new songs and a few songs written by others - what more could you want???

This album is been a long time coming but well worth the wait! The sound quality is amazing ! If you close your eyes it takes you back to those special nights that were SYMPHONICA live 2011/2012 - All the tracks have been lovingly chosen by George and he makes each track sound so special and personal something only he can do - His voice sounds so crisp - clear and pure making this album a must for everyone not just his loyal fans !!! FANTASTIC congratulations George its amazing

A really mature George here, outstanding orchestration. I have never heard anyone sing 'The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face' better than original Roberta Flack until now. This version is my favourite track. I was a bit dubious at first when I read it was live but there is not that much applause so did not detract. Highly recommended.

Having been to Symphonica in London, this album serves as a reminder of George's superb voice and takes me back to the evening when we saw the show. Symphonica captures the event for those who were unable to get tickets and showcases his exquisite voice which is indeed better live, as others have commented! I recommend this beautiful album to all who love true artistry. Brilliant!

"Symphonica" is George Michael's first album in 10 years. Though marketed as a new album, it is a concert/studio hybrid recorded during his Symphonica tour. As a long time George Michael fan, I was particularly interested in owning a record like this, considering the fact that this is his very first solo live release to date. Live albums are usually a good way of reminding people that someone exists, showcasing an artist's back catalogue or acting as a stop gap between albums. In GM's case, "Symphonica" does all of the above. Within the collection there are solo hits lifted from his own repertoire, as well as some of the covers that he had recorded for his 1999 covers collection, "Songs from the last century", plus a couple of renditions of some of music's finest artists.

Always the perfectionist, GM makes sure that there is a rich and expensive quality to each song. Most tracks could easily pass for studio versions, despite the applause and sporadic bits of improvisation; but, although the album lacks the mistakes and spontaneity of live recordings, Michael's exceptional talents as a songwriter, vocalist and performer shine through. Quite a few numbers have been omitted from this release, most notably Rihanna's "Russian roulette" and Amy Winehouse's "Love is a losing game", both of which were tour highlights. In fact, there were enough tracks excluded from the record to have made the record a 2-disc set. As GM's status as one of the all-time greatest pop stars is already cemented, "Symphonica" will reward all listeners with its undeniable class.

LP edition comes in double gatefold vinyl, featuring all 17 tracks of the deluxe edition of the album. It is a standard release as far as the packaging is concerned, but apparently a limited edition pressing.

I'm sure I read somewhere that "I Remember You" was to be an extra bonus track on the deluxe and blu ray editions but It's not on my deluxe version, but rant over. It's Perfect! From the haunting quality of "Let Her Down Easy" to the fabulous "Feeling Good" and the absolute beautiful version of "Cowboys and Angels" I Thank You George!

Symphonica showcases George Michael at his absolute best! His gorgeous soulful voice, the meaningful and wonderfully written songs, and his beautiful cover versions, will give any listener a real treat for the ears.
Especially good are "Let Her Down Easy" and "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" where his voice is magnificent, and make the hairs stand up on my neck!
