Music Across Space and Time
I first heard "Love Don't Need A Reason" somewhere in the early 1990s, all the way over here in Australia. Having recently tracked down this CD, I am pleased and humbled to finally hear Michael's haunting voice once again after all these years. Michael is a hero for his activist work, and this album reveals both his playful side and his profundity. "Where The Boys Are" is both comfortingly familiar and devilishly cheeky, while "Living in Wartime" and "How To Have Sex" remind us of the challenges and fears faced by so many people in the 1980s and 1990s - and beyond. "Small Town Change" testifies to the universal pains and humanity within Michael's music. He is missed by fans he never knew.
