Bits and Pieces for the U.S. Market

"Released only in America and Japan, "Music From the Edge of Heaven" is a less satisfying (and shorter) Wham! farewell than 1986's "The Final" - an international package with all the group's essential hits. However, the U.S. counterpart features an excellent live recording of "Blue" not available elsewhere. As a budget-priced CD, "Edge of Heaven" is worth having for the bouncy title track, the unedited "Last Christmas" and a memorable version of the Was (Not Was) ballad "Where Did Your Heart Go?" Still, if you're willing to spend a few extra dollars, "The Final" remains a superior investment."
