5.0 out of 5 stars Tonto, 13 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: It's About Time (Remastered) (MP3 Download)
Brilliant album. I had not heard this album except in the form of the remixed, renamed versions on Tonto Rides Again. I have to say that I was underwhelmed by those versions but in their original context (i.e. that album also reordered them and missed out the Beautiful You altogether.

This album and the original, and more familiar, Zero Time manage to sound both really dated and utterly contemporary at the same time. It should also be remembered that between their debut album and this album they had co-produced Stevie Wonder's Music Of My Mind, Talking Book, Innervisions and Fulfillingness' First Finale and helped shape the classic Stevie Wonder sound and thus also influence a significant proportion of popular music in the second half of the 1970s. The selection by Stevie Wonder of Malcolm Cecil and Robert Margouleff as producers was not altogether obvious in the early 70s as music was kept in silos much more than it is today. It seemed inconceivable that someone would listen to both Mowtown and experimental electronic music. The influence of these guys can still be heard today; electronic/synthesiser music owes a huge debt of thanks to these pioneer and surprisingly this album still sounds great!
