REVIEWS

******
extrem schön!
*****
Gemächliches Chill-Album. Sehr anspruchsvoll, aber genau das macht den Reiz aus von diesem Meisterwerk. Abgerundete 5, da leider nicht alle Songs 100pro überzeugen.
*****
Teilweise mir zu stylisch ansonsten eine 6
****
Hmmm...für mich nur Durchschnitt...leider hört man das OLDER auf einigen Tracks nur zu gut...ich mag lieber den wilderen, coolen George Michael!
******
COOL
***
Sein bei uns einziges #1 Album (1 Woche). Dabei ist es für mich das bisher schwächste.
Wieder gab es 5 Auskopplungen, trotz anspruchsvoller Musik unter der 3.5*

Jesus to a child + Fastlove sind die absoluten Höhepunkte auf der Scheibe... die aber auch so komplett überzeugen kann.
******
Ja, was soll man denn da noch sagen: Ein herausragendes Album, das George Michael Mitte der Neunziger vorlegte. Traumballaden wechseln sich mit funkigen und groovigen Stücken perfekt ab. Ein Meisterwerk, das in seinem Repertoire einen besonderen Platz hat.

Highlights: Jesus To A Child / Older / Spinning The Wheel / The Strangest Thing / You Have Been Loved

...mir fehlt da etwas...
******
Das Beste überhaupt was er jemals rausgebracht hat. Höre seit eine ewigkeit und wird trotzdem nie langweilig, oder zu viel, bin sozusagen seit 1996 davon stark abhängig.
Wunderschöne Melodie und einfach supar Texte und so gefühlvoll und so melancholisch. Nur er kann sowas singen. Traumhaft schön.

@ sanremo du bist einfach ein idiot

gut
*****
Das zweite Alterswerk nach LISTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE zeigt wieder die zwei Pole des George Michael's - auf der einen Seite die bunten, schnelleren Stücke, die das Leben voll auskosten (FASTLOVE, STARPEOPLE) - auf der anderen Seite die Melancholie und Lebenserfahrung, die in Stücken wie YOU HAVE BEEN LOVED/OLDER zum tragen kommen. Dazwischen erscheinen Szenen/Beobachtungen wie SPINNING THE WHEEL (mein Favourit) - insgesamt ein Album mit vielen Stärken und musikalisch sowieso over the top!
******
Excelente sonido y ritmo de este álbum. Es menos comercial, pero más profundo.
Mis canciones favoritas:
1. Jesus To A Child
2. Fastlove
3. You Have Been Loved.
****
Mir gefällt eigentlich nur die 1.Single "Jesus to a child" richtig gut.
*****
ich denke OLDER ist sein unterschätztes album, wenngleich es paradoxer weise nach FAITH "chartstechnisch" das erfolgreichste war, noch vor dem MASTERPIECE "LISTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE VOL. 1".
****
I originally only bought this album because at the time i really liked "Spinning The Wheel" and was wondering what all the fuss was about George Michael.

In theory it's not my normal thing to like music like this, reminds me of cafe music those lazy sunday mornings at your local cafe sipping lat'e.

Their are a few highlights other than spinning that i mentioned earlier in You Have Been Loved, Move On and To Be Forgiven.
*****
zeer mooi album van George uit 1996. Was zijn eerste solo album sinds "Listen without Prejudice" uit 1990. De fans hadden er blijkbaar op zitten wachten, want het werd zijn mees succesvolle album in Nederland!!
******
Stark unterschätztes Album mit vielen sehr guten Hits:

Fastlove
Jesus To A Child
Spinning A Wheel (ok, Albumversion nicht so berauschend wie die House Mixes von Forthright)
Star People (ok, Albumversion nicht so berauschend wie die House Mixes von Forthright und Galaxy.
****
Ein ganz ordentliches Album.
******
Bei "Older" reicht's wieder knapp für die Höchstwertung. Nicht ganz so stark wie "Faith" trotzdem ein sehr gelungenes Album aus Mitte der 90er. Klasse Bonus die aufgepimpten Versionen auf der "upper" CD.
*****
Nach 6 Jahren kam endlich wieder ein neues Studioalbum von George Michael auf dem Markt.
Chillige und ruhige Sounds, die zum entspannen und träumen einladen, entführt einen "Older" zu einer Hörbaren Wohltat. Wirklich große Nummern sind abermals hier fehl am Platz. Außer "Strangelove" nichts was sonderlich heraus sticht, so ist doch alles sehr schön produziert und vor allem sehr gut und warm gesungen.

Jesus To A Child 5*
Fastlove 6*
Older 6*
Spinning The Wheel 5*
It Doesn't Really Matter 5*
The Strangest Thing 5*
To Be Forgiven 5*
Move On 5*
Star People 5*
You Have Been Loved 5*
Free 4*

Durchschnitt: 5.09 ~ 5*
***
I don't know whether it's because I'm tired, but this album is just too boring for me. I'm not particularly big on any of the singles here, even though two of them are amongst the biggest of his career, but they've just never resonated with me at all, and the rest of the album is in the same boat for me. I probably like 'You Have Been Loved' the most, although a little bit of a mix-up would have been good here. He must have been trying to cross into the adult market a bit more, and it seems to have worked since this album did well, so kudos there I guess. 3.3/6.
