iTunes Review

There’s unbridled joy and plenty of sweat on this buoyant 1980 album. On the Bob Marley-inspired reggae track “Master Blaster (Jammin’),” every instrument sounds like it's on springs, as Wonder makes a jubilant plea for unity. At the other end of the spectrum, “Lately” is one of his most aching ballads, with intimate vocals and a melancholy feel, while the ebullient “Happy Birthday,” a tribute to Martin Luther King Jr., is impossible to listen to without a smile on your face.

“All I Do” and “Rocket Love” are 2 of Stevie’s most painfully, PAINFULLY underrated songs. I disagree with the iTunes critique that “All I Do” is “Disco-tinged”. That song is solidly R&B that just grooves in a way no disco tune could ever hope to.
