5.0 out of 5 stars Songwriting at its very best., 8 Aug. 2002
By 
This review is from: Older (Audio CD)
In light of the negative press George Michael has received lately for his 'Shoot the Dog' release I felt compelled to write an editorial on 'Jesus To A Child' which without doubt in a mass consensus would proove to be his seminal work.
'Jesus to a Child' and 'You have been loved' deal with loss of life and love in a way no other artist has been able to convey and evokes powerful emotions upon listening to. Its a sad irony that an album dealing with death and the aftermath of bereavement would be what happened in effect to his career after this album, a musical equivalent of Van Gogh chopping his ear off after creating his ultimate masterpiece.
The title track 'Older' is also a beautifully composed and written piece of music, citing his paranoia at lost youth and a sarcastic slant on aging. This is a fantastic album from a fantastic artist who deserves to be an icon for generations for his talent NOT his sexuality or political opinion, John Lennon was one of the most talented musicians of our times and was a paragon of political virtue to the masses, I am trying to say that George Michaels music is his political statement and this album is its loudest voice, as he once said....Listen without prejudice !
