Weekly Vinyl – Stevie Wonder

Fulfillingness’ First Final
Stevie Wonder
(1974)
SONY DSC
I’ve been listening to this album on-and-off for a couple of days now and can’t really make up my mind about it. I is a darker, slower, more sombre album that the funky music you expect from Stevie Wonder.
There’s lots to like about Stevie Wonder. He is an amazing talent. But this album just does not do it for me. There are some great tunes here – Boogie on Reggae Woman, for example. But the rest of the music is very contemplative and personal. And very 70s in sound. Besides the above mentioned song and one or two others the songs are rather flat and emotionless – although they are trying to convey emotion. This is very much middle-of-the road music.
I listened to this album three or four times in its entirety trying to get inspired by the music – no luck.
