Gil Scott-Heron is one of the great recording artists of the 20th century; it is a shame that he is relatively unknown. He work is always interesting and I would recommend (almost) all of his albums.
Moving Target is musically, one of Gil Scott Heron's more upbeat, funkier albums although the lyrical content is rather personal and pessimistic. The album opens fantastically with four excellent tracks: Fast Lane, Washington DC, No Exit and Blue Collar but peters out towards the end as both the reggae tinged Ready or Not and Black History/The World have dated quite badly.
Although Moving Target holds a special place in my affections (it was the first GSH album I bought many, many years ago) I do not think that it is by any stretch of the imagination his best work. For me, the album lacks the influence of Brian Jackson, who is so important to his best work and although there is the occasional flash of Scott Heron's brilliance there is too much padding. Start somewhere else; Pieces of a Man, Winter in America or the compilation The Revolution Will Not Be Televised are all much better.
In spite of my issues I still love this album and recommend it wholeheartedly.

I can't say I dislike this, I just have to make it clear that there is a whole load of better material well worth a look before this. 'The Revolution...' and 'Reflections' are both essential, whereas this, although excellent in parts, comes across as fairly mediocre in comparison. Perhaps comparison is unfair, but heed this warning.
