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.

George Michael's follow-up to the massive success of Faith found him turning inward, trying to gain critical acclaim as well as sales. 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
When George Michael released a mostly acoustic, bossa nova-inflected album in 1990, in the season of Nelson and Wilson Phillips, many critics responded as if Jordan Knight of New Kids on the Block had announced a run for president. If Listen Without Prejudice starts a trend among Michael’s pop generation to move beyond image to integrity, James Hunter lauded in Rolling Stone, it could make ‘rock and roll TV’ sound more consistently and convincingly like music. Robert Christgau wasn’t fooled: Whatever the sleazy details, his announced decision to hold off on the dance music till next time.
Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 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
