5.0 out of 5 stars A great album is going on!, 4 Aug. 2004
This review is from: What's Going On (Audio CD)
At a time when Motown was one of the biggest hit producing record companies in the world they refused to record this for Marvin Gaye. Inspired by his brother's return from Vietnam, he ingnored the love songs that all the other Motown artists were recording, and wrote about the things in life that he cared about at the time. Fortunately he managed to get this recorded even after Berry Gordy Junior refused, but Smokey Robinson interceded for him and as they say, the rest is history...
From the title track onwards we get a heady mix of motown, jazz, blues and cool, laid-back tunes. Lyrically it is far superior to anything that previously came from a Motown artist, and it rightly deserves its place in the various top 10 albums of all time lists that it regularly gets into.
It's great music to listen to whilst driving to work, and songs like 'Whats Happening Brother' and 'God is Love' are just great to groove along to in the car.
It really is one of the best albums ever recorded!
