5.0 out of 5 stars Who says nothing sexy ever came out of Belgium?, 15 Dec 2008
This review is from: Midnight Love (Audio CD)
The last studio album by Marvin Gaye recorded in the unlikely location of Ostend, Belgium in 1982 shows that he had lost none of his power to make incomparably smooth, sexy "after dark" soul. There is a nod to his drug habit "Did you save a line for the ladies? We're not into that are you crazy..." on the blistering opener Midnight Lady but you would never guess at his problems on this seamless funky, soulful journey through the thoughts and actions of the number 1 ladies' man. Some songs such as 'Til Tomorrow are slow and seductive and some like Rockin' After Midnight are well rockin'. Jesus even gets a name check on the the very funky My Love Is Waiting and the big hit of the album - Sexual Healing - shows just how strong Marvin's output was towards the end of his life. In fact the whole album is a testament to how great he still was.

The band on this album consisting of Marvin's friends and relatives are a tight unit producing a very funky sound guaranteed to make you move and shake your body.

Listen to Midnight Love along with Gaye's other great lady seducer album Let's Get It On and you will understand why he is held in such high esteem as the music of choice for romantic liaisons the world over.

So you didn't rate Jacques Brel? A bit dishy, he was!

Hi alas I don't remember him but thanks I will check out his oeuvre. As to his dishy status I couldn't comment. I will leave that to the ladies. Cheers.
