3.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful but Disappointing!, 8 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Patience (Audio CD)
"Patience" by George Michael is an unusual mixed bag of virtues and vices. This English all-around talent (singer, composer, musician, producer, etc.) is a major figure in the Music World and justifiably so. Despite his many skills, George Michael's singing gifts most forcefully impress me and this male must have 1 of the finest voices ever in the Popular realm. On this CD his stunning vocals are to the fore and beautifully mixed. The arrangements, sampling of other recordings and intriguing sound effects are flawless. My favourite tracks are - "Patience". "Patience Pt 11" (an especially handsome instrumental), "Amazing" & the vivacious "Flawless (Go to the City)" ! However, despite the many virtues outlined, this album is over-long and the huge amount of work and time that went into its creation, probably explains why it seems dull and disappointing ultimately. Any sense of spontaneity is missing and for me it becomes a chore to listen to it from start to conclusion. When a CD becomes a chore you realise that there is something basically missing. Other shorter, simpler and less-contrived albums by George Michael far surpass "Patience" !
