Stevie Wonder is a musical genius. His voice is superb, his piano playing inspired and his songs unforgettable. Innervisions is the album to start with if you dont know too much about SW. You will hear good things about 'Songs in the key of life' and all those good reviews are perfectly justified, but 'Innervisions' is on a different level. Every song is a masterpiece of soulful, funky music. The melodies are unforgettable! Stevie Wonders strength, apart from his great voice, is his approach to song writing. As a writer he is eclectic; on this particular album, going from the wistful teary eyed ambience of 'Visions' to the hard funk of 'Higher Ground' 'Innervisions' also happens to have my two of my favourite SW songs of all time 'Golden Lady' and 'Living for the city' I bought it on the strength of those two songs and was unexpectadly knocked out by the rest of this great package. Wonder and his band use electronics and acoustics tastefully and expertly side by side to produce that glorious 70's funk sound, synonomous with edgy and more experimental artists, while clevery retaining the commercial edge. This would be high in my chart of 'best albums of all time' Just think, all this praise and anthusiasm from a 'Prog Rock' fan, Innervisions must be good to cut through my cold cynicism reserved for anything that isnt 20 minutes in length, and in 7/4 time.

This album, next to Marvin Gaye's What's Going On and Al Green's I'm Still In Love With You is the definitive soul album. From the opening synth-filled pungence of Too High to the closing, wonderful growled "duh duh duh duh" of He's Misstra Know-It-All, Wonder can do no wrong. The obvious highlights are "Living For The City" and "Higher Ground" but the detatched elegance of "Visions" and the thrilling "Don't You Worry 'Bout A Thing" are too great for words. Songs In The Key of Life may get more acclaim and I Just Called To Say I Love You may be his Oscar-winning biggest selling single, but Innervisions is Wonder's definitive statement, a flash of utter genius!

While the conventional wisdom has "Songs in the Key of Life" as SWs best album, I found it to be a little long winded, with too many tracks running out of ideas/steam long before their end,

On Inner Visions IMHO, we find him with a collection of songs which hang together beautifully, which is perfectly paced, and without a duff track. The familiar hits need no introduction, and those which never made a single release are as strong.

When this album was released, Stevie was pushing the boundaries , developing the synthesiser sound he had pioneered on Music of my Mind" and "Talking Book", taking Soul music (and music in general in fact) to new places.

If you are in any way a fan of modern R & B, you need this album to find out where the sound came from, if you are a fan of Soul or Funk, it is indispensible.

I was introduced to this album , other wise I might have laboured on with my misconception, held by many I feel, that Stevie is only 'Ebony & Ivory' schmaltz and some of the other guff he has come out with from the early 1980s onwards. This album and Gaye's 'What's Goin' On' are essential for a variety of reasons: early examples of a black artist taking creative control and venting their anger at the treatment of their fellow man; examples of former child stars finally gaining artistic release from the artistic shackles of the Motown to express themselves fully; and albums that have not dated at all. Mnay people prefer 'Songs In The Key Of Life', but this is the album that best showcases his talents. By the release of this album the Panthers were fading/over as a force, so it must have been a shock for a squeaky clean ex-child star like Wonder to come out with something as acerbic as 'Living For The City'. Listening to Stevie growl over that track, and gently mock in 'He's Misstra Know It All', and you realise that before his winsome duets with McCartney et al here was an artist who was not only a musical genius but who hit his every target with a sarcastic panache. For me. 'Living For The City' is still one of the most coruscating songs about the US black urban experience recorded over the last 30 years- a template for Public Enemy and others to follow.....you won't find many serious artists today who don't respect this guy or do not give this album pride of place......please buy it, and see what you've been missing......it is never out of my hi-fi.

Stevie Wonder once explained that "Talking Book" was a collection of better songs, but that "Innervisions" was a better overall statement, especially in terms of his sense of spirituality. Certainly this 1973 album is more coherent thematically. "Higher Ground" and "Living For The City" represent the pinnacle of his songwriter, working on such a different level. "Superstition" might be my favorite Stevie Wonder song, but it is not his best song, if that makes any sense. The ballads "Golden Lady" and "All in Love is Fair," along with "Doncha Worry Bout a Thing," and "Jesus Children of America," are the non-hits that more than justify picking up "Innvervisions" instead of stopping with the latest Stevie Wonder hit collection (e.g., "The Definitive Collection"). Add "Talking Book" to the mix and that would be the minimum essential requirements for the Stevie Wonder section of your music library.
