5.0 out of 5 stars On Cloud Nine, 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sky's The Limit (Audio CD)
One brilliant soul group + one genius writer and producer (Norman Whitfield) = one awesome album. From 1971, this freshly remastered record is one of the very best the Temptations ever recorded. It's got the sublime hit 'Just My Imagination', plus the social consciousness of 'Unite The World' and 'Man'. Then there's the wonderful 'I'm The Exception To The Rule ' - which would have made a great single with its spoken introduction and overall melancholy - and 'Throw A Farewell Kiss' with its stylish piano arpeggios and vocal harmony workouts.

Best of the lot though is 'Smiling Faces Sometimes', a 12 minute saga of paranoia and betrayal, where the group gets to strut its vocal prowess and the producer gets to flex his 'freak out' orchestrations. It's mind-blowing stuff, moving the Temptations ever closer to Sly And The Family Stone-type territory. The remastering is superb. Highly recommended.

At long last ,a classic album from the TEMPTATIONS available @ a good price and good sound quality to boot....this is what collectors like myself, have been asking of the UNIVERSAL/EMI.etc vaults for years....there are thousands like myself who want to transfer their vinyl collections to cd...( even in this digital age )..and the TEMPTATIONS are without doubt the finest vocal group to prove the point...its 2013 and their back catalogue is still not available....think of SOLID ROCK, WINGS OF LOVE, HOUSE PARTY, etc yhe list goes on. RE SKYS THE LIMIT circa 1971, this is the album that was EDDIE KENDRICKS swan song ,and he left us with JUST MY IMAGINATION...a classic, along with SMILING FACES,although not always thought of as a TEMPTS essential, this album, produced by NORMAN WHITFIELD, should be on every lover of good music wants list.....buy and enjoy !!.
