I agree with this assessment. I think that the album has a common theme: love and relationship. there seemed to have interconnection of the songs. Everything She Wants and Credit Card Baby (I actually love the tune of this song) are complaining about materialism and its conflict with love. Heartbeat and Like A Baby were talking about frustration of love. Freedom was to plead for the lover to be devoted to him, whereas Careless Whisper expressed regret. It is pretty amazing that this album generated 3 No.1s in the US (and UK?) out of only 8 songs. George of course outdid it again with Faith.
