Side 1 is a bunch of cool, trippy, kinda spooky prog rock tracks. Side 2 is a massive, repetitive, hypnotic jam that grows in insanity throughout. Suddenly, the repetition and hypnotic rhythms of the first disc disappear on side 3 in favour of 17 minutes of scary, ambient, dissonant noise. The first half of side 4 is just ridiculous, and the second half returns to the style of the first few tracks. It's quite a journey to listen to, and not an easy one at that. But it is so hypnotic and weird, there aren't a lot of albums that can compare.
Favourite Tracks: Halleluwah, Oh Yeah, Paperhouse [First added to this chart: 03/07/2017]
This is the sound of a man who took his sadness and turned it into hope. Rather than moping about his problems, as many musicians have, Gaye did all he could to bring love and joy to as many people as he could. Call it corny and idealistic, but this is some of the most sincere and beautiful music ever written.
Favourite Tracks: Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology), What's Going On, Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler), What's Happening Brother [First added to this chart: 03/07/2017]
Favourite Tracks: Hotel Overture, Escalator Over The Hill, Why, Rawalpindi Blues, End Of Rawalpindi [First added to this chart: 07/07/2018]
Favourite Tracks: Luv N' Haight, Family Affair, Runnin' Away, Thank You For Talkin' To Me Africa [First added to this chart: 09/05/2017]
Favourite Tracks: Maggot Brain, Can You Get To That, Hit It And Quit It, Wars Of Armageddon [First added to this chart: 08/28/2017]
