In 1986, George Michael wandered deep into himself. He realized that, at some point in the five years he had recorded and toured with his bandmate Andrew Ridgeley in Wham!, he had completely lost track of who he was. With Wham!, Michael had achieved his childhood dream of becoming unreasonably famous; he glided across stages, and fans’ eyes waded in his direction. His enormous blonde hair looked like a work of relief sculpture, and his voice pulsed with brightness, like a lightbulb about to burst in its socket. It’s an album that’s divided down the center between faith and funk, an album on which the sex song is actually about monogamy-an album that reveals more of itself the more one pays attention to the drift of its details. I feel this is not a pop album, Michael told SPIN in 1987.

A superbly crafted mainstream pop/rock masterpiece, Faith made George Michael an international solo star, selling over ten million copies in the . Perhaps even more impressively, it also made him the first white solo artist to hit number one on the R&B album charts. Michael had already proven the soulful power of his pipes by singing a duet with Aretha Franklin on the 1987 smash "I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)," but he went even farther when it came to crafting his own material, using sophisticated '70s soul as an indispensable part of his foundation.

Faith was Michael's first solo album, and second single as a solo artist (after "I Want Your Sex"). He was previously a member of the pop duo Wham!, and was trying to change his image so he would appeal to a more adult audience and be taken seriously as an artist, something that wasn't easy after hit singles like "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" and "I'm Your Ma. In the video, he appeared with stubble, a biker jacket, and strategically torn Levi's. When the album was released, Michael explained why he chose this song as the title track, saying:. Callie from Bristol, United Kingdom"Saturday Night Live" made two skits (with Dana Carvey as George Michael) about George's butt in "Faith" music video.

I like all the hits on this album, not to mention "Hard Day"(the one single that wasn't much of a hit) as well as the NON singles "Hand To Mouth" and "Look At Your Hands". However, I'm prevented from considering this a perfect album because I think that parts 2 and 3 of "I Want Your Sex" are pretty lame(part 1, though, is great) and think the Shep Pettibone remix of "Hard Day", while maybe decent, is unnecessarily present and those three tracks maybe only exist as filler. Otherwise, the other eight tracks, like I said, are all quite good and the album has a good flow.

No-one could have ever predicted the success of George Michael’s debut solo LP except possibly Michael himself. His first single, the luxurious ballad “Careless Whispers” was not a lucky break, more an open invitation to wind down his activities with Teen pop duet Wham and plunge his gathering songwriting and vocal confidence into the adult oriented arena. The break up of Wham came in 1985 and for a large part of the following year Michael was writing, playing and producing what would become “Faith”. His decision to play the majority of the instruments and self produce was either recklessly brave or wholly egotistical. Probably the latter as in interview he confessed “This business is built on ego, vanity, self satisfaction, and it’s total crap to pretend that it’s not”. Whatever the reason, there’s little doubt that the decision to mainly work alone was vital, as it gave the singer complete control over the creative process and as a result, a large majority of “Faith” is superbly crafted mainstream pop. The album would sell well over 10 million copies and uniquely reach the top of both mainstream and R&B American charts, supported by four number one hit singles. Michael’s willful intention to throw off his teen adored past is highlighted in the first few bars of the title track as a mournful pipe organ plays a funeralesque version of “Freedom” from his Wham days. This immediately launches into the simple but truly indispensable “Faith”; a rockabilly sing a long bubblegum anthem that may not be inventive but is nevertheless rollicking good fun. The outstanding song from the album follows in the striking and soulful “Father Figure”. Sparsely backed Michael delivers a superlative vocal performance about the complexity of love and the roles that exist within a relationship (at this time he was still considered heterosexual). The controversial “I Want Your Sex” proved that the artist could still put out a cool cut of disco funk and if there is a criticism it’s that the song trundles on for over nine minutes and in hindsight the album mix should have been consigned to a 12” single only. Other highlights include the cocktail jazz “Kissing A Fool” and the definitive 80’s sound of “Monkey”. In the space of 50 odd minutes George Michael had created a brand new identity and the true genius of this recording was that he managed to maintain his original Wham fans, and yet introduce a wide and varied audience of twenty somethings, galvanized by his great voice, some strong songs and an enigmatic presence that would continue throughout his career. The teen idol grew up and now had songs to match his genuine vocal talents. He made a difficult transition look completely effortless, and for that reason alone “Faith” is an astonishing achievement.

A timeless piece of 80's pop/R&B brilliantly put together by George which still sounds great today. Vocally George is on point and the mix of up tempo numbers & ballads make this an all round quality album of songs. Favourite tracks: Faith; Father Figure & Kissing A Fool.

With George Michael's recent passing I listened to this album for the first time in many years and as big as this album was in 1987 a few things become apparently clear listening to it. There is a lot of influence from Michael Jackson and Prince. Side one is put together very well; "faith" has an old Bo Diddley rhythm, "father figure" is very melodic. "I want your sex" is a Prince knock off and "one more try" is typical 1987 big pop ballad. Side two is techno pop songs until "kissing a fool" which is George Michael's cabaret indulgence. Overall it's a very good album but entrenched in the sound of the late 1980s.

This album was a staple of my musical diet when I was younger. After a recent critical listen I found the deep tracks less satisfying than the hits and found the lyrics unsophisticated. But, It's good.
