Is Narada Michael Walden so sorely neglected? Over the years he has turned in some absolutely stonking records. The guy is one of the best Jazz/Rock percussionists and trap drummers ever; his productions are brilliant (Whitney Houston/Madonna), he has a great voice and he writes brilliant pop/rock/dance songs, so why is he virtually unknown?
The only chart action he ever had was with 'I Shoulda Loved Ya', in the late seventies and 'Divine Emotion' in the mid eighties. Whilst other way inferior artistes have become household names, Walden has continued to work in the shadows. I don't think there's anybody working in his fields in the Music Business who would argue with me; I just cannot understand why he is not a much bigger name in the public mainstream.
This, for me, is his piece de resistance. It includes 'Gimme, Gimme, Gimme' a duet with Patti Austin, which I'd forgotten did enter the lower reaches of the chart, but this is one of the weaker tracks. One side (can't remember which, as I haven't got the album to hand) opens with the pounding 'The Nature of Things' which should be a dance classic, the other side opens with 'The Way It Is', which is equally brilliant. Sandwiched in between these tracks are 'Give It Up' and the standout track 'High Above the Clouds' which is just to die for.
To my knowledge, this has NEVER been out on cd. Come on you people at Warner's, get your act together and release it and whilst we're on this subject, when is the same label going to release a box set of Rahsaan Roland Kirk's complete Warner/Atlantic recordings. Stop keeping the best music in the world locked up in your archives!!!!!!!

In my humble opinion " The Nature of Things" is by far the best album by N.M.W ever!

If you're a fan of N.M.W it's a must have cd!

Wrap Your Angel Wings 8 Jan. 2008

It's interesting that this album was one of the very first I ever had-a scratchy vinyl copy from a free radio station record giveaway in 1994. That copy skipped and was very poppy so I never really got a chance to enjoy it until I purchased the CD version. Anyway on to my review.In 1985 Narada was hitting his peak as a producer,striking gold with Aretha and Whitney Houston's debut recordings. On 'The Nature Of Things' Narada uses a similar musical approch but there are heavy elements of his own jazzier musical elan added into the mix. Many of these songs are message oriented and have a highly mystical bent.The brooding dance song "That's The Way It Is" (NOT the Bruce Hornsby hit) was one of the finer uptempo message songs of the period.One of the songs that I and everyone really enjoys on this album is the majestic dance tune "High Above The Clouds"-it's an easy candidate for the best song here. Luckily Narada's work didn't go totally unnoticed this time as "Gimme Gimme Gimme",his peppy duet with Patty Austin became a hit single and drive in theater-based music video. "Live It Up" and "Suspicion" are both veddy mid 80's dance-funk tunes with enough of Narada's nimble musicianship to make them work.The title track is something everyone missed-as interesting a musical fusion as Seals "Kiss From A Rose";in Narada's case a fusion of a hip-hop dance track with a lot of scratch breaks and the melody of a matrical!Narada rocks out on "Dancin' On Main Street",singing in a deep,gruff voice not normally associated with him. The album ends with the sing-a-long Caribbean number.This album may not be the grand artistic achievment of 'Looking At You,Looking At Me' but it follows in the same general progression and does a fine job of that.
