Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1 is the second solo studio album by the English singer-songwriter George Michael, released on 3 September 1990. The album was Michael's final album of all-new material on Columbia Records until 2004's Patience. Disappointing album sales in the US led to Michael's legal battles against Sony Music, in which he accused the corporation of not fully supporting him as an artist.

Listen Without Prejudice, Vol. 1 is not an entirely successful effort; Michael has cut back on the effortless hooks and melodies that crammed not only Faith but also his singles with Wham!, and his socially conscious lyrics tend to be heavy-handed. But the highlights - the light, Beatlesque harmonies of "Heal the Pain," the plodding number one "Praying for Time," and also "Waiting for That Day" as well as the Top Ten "Freedom" - make a case for his talents as a pop craftsman. 1 (Vol. 2, said to be more dance oriented, will follow next June) is designed to turn this impression around. For the most part the album succeeds in its effort to establish Michael’s seriousness and deliver him from caricature. Everybody’s got to sell/But when you shake your ass/They notice fast, Michael sings on Freedom 90. This is a far cry from the George Michael who, with sidekick Andrew Ridgeley, unabashedly titled a Wham! album Make It Big and scored a Number One . single in 1985 with Careless Whisper, a danceable ballad dying to sound soulful
The follow-up to George's 1987 legendary debut solo album Faith, Listen Without Prejudice Vo. was initially shrouded in mystery, especially when George revealed he would not be promoting the album and would not be appearing on its sleeve or in its videos. Freedom ’90 was the third single from the album and its video was a game-changer. Still regarded as one of the greatest and most influential pop videos of all time, it generated a new audience for George and his work. Today, this gem sparkles brighter than ever.
