This review is from: Twenty Five [Deluxe Edition] (Audio CD)
Twenty Five: Special Edition...? Mostly Brilliant, if somewhat overplayed
First Two discs are an upgrade of Ladies & Gentleman with added "Patience" and a bit of Wham..
As with "Ladies and Gentleman" disc one is for the feet, disc two for the heart. Highlights include Everything She Wants, Spinning the Wheel, Heal the Pain (with Paul McCartney) and Fastlove. Nice to see Older added to the collection this time around, but no Cowboys and Angels? Shame. His most recent tasty offerings of Easier Affair and This Is Not Real Love are also included
Disc three however is really worth a listen. It is a collection of gems mostly taken from Patience/Songs of the Century with B Sides plus new track "Understand".
You get the impression that George was rather disappointed with the bad press he received for Patience. He seems to be pushing Patience album tracks heavily on the third disc (which is fine by me)
One low point however - Wake Me Up Before You Go Go - It has always been and always will be utter tat!

Have to agree with you - I hated Wham, but love George, he is so much better as a solo artist.
