The worst book ever. How could such a beautiful album spawn this load of cods-wallop. I don't know what the author was on, but this book makes about as much sense as a UKIP MEP. It is long on words and short on substance, and probably should be quarantined on a desert island so as not to contaminate the rest of the english language.

Zeth demonstrates an extensive vocabulary but, to paraphrase Morecambe and Wise, uses all the right words, "...but not necessarily in the right order," leading the recipient to mourn their wasted time and money. Unless you have a masters in advanced balderdash, keep your cash, content in the knowledge, that you have done your bit to save the world from the spread of gibberish.

A disgruntled Stevie Wonder fan.

Stevie Wonder's Song In The Key of Life is perhaps the key album amongst several that form one of the greatest runs of creativity in pop music. This book does the album justice with insightful analysis and revealing details of how the album came to be.

Brilliant analysis of a seminal album. Soul music is too often overlooked when it comes to classic albums, and this 70s slice of stunning musicianship gets its due with this entry in the addictive mini-book series. Stevie produced a run of flawless, inventive and hugely influential albums over a five-year period in the decade, culminating with this masterpiece. The writing is accessible and authoritative, and fully does justice to the sheer variety of musical styles to be found on 'Songs...'

2.0 out of 5 stars Great writing, too detailed 4 Oct. 2014
By Gordon R. Mitchell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Book was interesting, but written on a professional music critic level. A lot of deep analysis on equipment and not reviewed for the average person who might buy this. Great writing, too detailed.

4.0 out of 5 stars A hard read, but a great one. 15 Jan. 2009
By Matthew C. Allen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"Songs in the Key of Life," Zeth Lundy's contribution to the 33 1/3 series, is a great installment to an excellent series. The author describes and discusses the making of Stevie Wonder's 1976 release with a interesting spin, dividing its 21 compositions into five catagories/chapters: Birth, Innocence, Experience, Death and Transcendence. He uses his research to illustrate this method in very fine fashion. I must admit, it was a difficult read for me and may be for others. There are a lot of "big" words in it, which is the reason it gets four stars rather than five, but in the end, the book is informative, expressive, entertaining and surprisingly objective. As a HUGE Stevie Wonder fan and music journalist, I must say that this book is wonderful, no pun intented.

1.0 out of 5 stars 90% opinion, 10% factual content 4 Sept. 2015
By Marshall Lawrence - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I don't mind the torrent of words or the specific vocabulary choices the author makes. But if you're a musician or producer looking for clues on how this album was crafted, this is NOT the book for you. This is a very long esoteric expository opinionated review of the work. I already know what I think about this project. I already know why I like various tracks. I don't need this. Only rarely will he reveal some piece of non-opinionated fact of production and that's what I was looking for. But if you long to be a pop music critic writer, this would be a valuable read to analyze.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your time 29 April 2008
By Bob Wright - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Zeth Lundy wastes the opportunity to write about one of the greatest musical statements in pop/soul music in order to gargle his cynical opinions with a pretentious vocabulary that requires a close-at-hand dictionary to decipher. Don't bother...the opinions are not worth the effort to understand. Stevie Wonder's album speaks to the heart, Lundy's words can only be for his own amusement.
