The first disc is simply perfect. The second one is great, but I could have done with a few tracks less. But all in all, this album is crazy good and my favorite Stevie Wonder album. The work of a true genius. It covers multiple genres and it does well in everyting. A must listen!

This album defies logic, an album this long, by an artist I never really liked should not be this amazing. This is just a fantastic album.

From Sandrof1969 02/15/2018 20:34
L'album che consegna definitivamente alla storia il suo autore, che contiene così tante idee ( non tutte ottime, per la verità ) da non bastare un doppio per contenerle tutte e che mette in fila una serie di canzoni tra le più classiche tra quelle dello Stefano Meraviglia nonché della musica nera e del pop tutto. Il primo dei due dischi è assolutamente inattaccabile, il secondo no ma contiene comunque diverse canzoni memorabili. La vetta assoluta di un artista abituato alle montagne russe dell'ispirazione.

The cynicism that occasionally cropped up in Innervisions is diminished - here is Stevie Wonder proclaiming his belief that love is an all-permeating force, the same as life itself, and that in the end, love in all its forms reigns supreme. Dig a little deeper than the incredible singles, and you run into treasures such as the space gospel sounds of Have a Talk With God, the proto-rap of Black Man, and the rapturous juggernaut of As.

He really wasn't being fair here. I feel like he just said, "Screw it, I've been holding back but I'm just gonna go ahead and blow everyone else away." Almost two hours of music and hardly a weak moment to be found? The songs just jump out of the speaker. Did he set out to rewrite the American songbook?

When an album that is genius is also not as great as it should be. It's not easy to get this inside your head.
Almost all songs are great but also all songs are too way extended and the brilliance gets lost. That's the main issue with Stevie Wonder. The guys a genius without a doubt but it feels like he likes too much what he creates.

This is clearly an historic album but if only there were an outside producer to control the excess.
