Stevie Wonder ~ Songs In The Key Of Life ~ Review #76

There will never be enough words I think to give this album justice, some projects are just so good that they defy explanation thru words alone, it’s more about the feeling and this one definitely has a whole lot of feelings…

While it’s not my favorite Wonder album I can see why people say it’s his best, all the sounds and ideas he had experimented with on previous releases were perfected, the songs and instrumentals are deep and meaningful as always, they range from the typical Motown sound to jazz to funk sometimes all in the same song…

This album alone really got me thru a lot, on my good days there were upbeat songs so good I couldn’t help but dance, and for those not so good days there were songs of the same that offered understanding and reflection on my situation….

I’m sure everyone knows at least one song from this one as some of his biggest hits came from it, but if your anywhere into funk or soul and you haven’t heard it all the way thru, give it a listen it’s definitely worth it….
