Review : "George Michael : Songs From The Last Century"by Nigel Packer
...The album’s emphasis on hits from the first half of the century leaves littleroom for recent songs - although judging by the ill-chosen version of U2’s MissSarajevo that’s probably just as well.
It’s a brilliant song, of course - quite possibly the best of the 90s - but its uniqueand eerie quality could be the very reason why it’s so difficult to cover. Michael’sover-embellished vocal lacks the direct emotional impact of Bono’s original,while the flat instrumental section is no substitute for the spine-tinglingintervention of Pavarotti.
