Can't sing? Listen again!

"The 2 people (or is it 1 double posting) on here who say George Michael can't sing are talking nonsense. OK, you're Queen fans and in your eyes and mine nobody can ever replace Freddy, fair enough, but to say George Michael can't sing is like saying Posh Spice CAN!! It's absurd. I am a massive fan of Queen and on the day of the Tribute Concert it became all too apparent that none of the artists performing could hold a candle to Freddy for sheer vocal ability and performance, then right near the end of the concert George Michael took to the stage. WOW!!! Is all I can say, he nailed it. George sang his butt off that day and you could see and sense the crowd at Wembley appreciating someone who could actually pull it off. They loved it, I loved it and if you don't own this CD you will love it too. This is a fine performance from a fine singer. End of story."
Decent, but not essential

"This short E.P. of mostly live performances was mainly an effort to hold fans over in-between albums. Some live performances with Queen were included, including a powerful hit rendition of the Freddie Mercury classic "Somebody To Love" (#30 US) and a lovely cover of Queen's "These are the Days of Our Lives," performed as a duet with Lisa Stansfield. Michael also performs live renditions of Seal's "Killer"(#69 US), which segues into the Rolling Stones' "Papa Was a Rolling Stone," and a stark, stirring performance of Bob Telson's Oscar nominated "Calling You" (from the BAGDAD CAFE). Also included, for somewhat inexplicable reasons, is a brief snippet of Queen performing "Dear Friends" from it's SHEER HEART ATTACK album. There are enough interesting moments to make this a fine listen for Michael's fans, however, none of the covers top the originals and most listeners will be able to live without it.
GM - The King is the Best!

"King George is the Best - When we gotta pick a choice of the best of the best of Pop, it's George Michael vs the rest of the rest. Yeah, pick any single or an album of George Michael, it's the hazy, soft and the tempting, sensuous n seductive voice of George that is irresistible to listen. In this Five Live, Somebody to love - I love this song with the repeats somebody...somebody...and teaming up with live performance of Queen, Freddie Mercury classic Somebody to love is the perfect song ever I like. Papa was a rolling stone is yet another superb presentation even with the video and Lisa n George prove their excellence with the music beats behind blending to perfection duo. Killer is one number that I love apart from its theme n lyrics. I would say, for a diehard fan like me, George Michael is great listening and when Queen is a choice with GM, by all means, Freddie Mercury too, stand out great pleasure listening. Go for Five Live - A must collection for a GM Fan till you cross your fingers and await for George Michael's latest new single "An Easiest Affair - Here comes one for the ladies..I have yet to pick this one!"
