That's Dylan not Stevie, as great as He is, He hasn't got the depth of Dylan's writing.

as great as some of Stevie Wonder's songs are written, and with all due respect to his amazing voice, the music on his albums didnt always move me... too soft at times...no edginess...rarely funky... too sweet...

This comment is sticking with me. You know how it is when a certain album sticks with you, maybe while your brain is pruning and it still lights up like Christmas every time you hear it.

There is an MC Lyte album that does this for me and I don't think it has appeared in ANY album list published anywhere.

Hmmmm...are we talking about Lyte As A Rock?


No, Eyes On This, the second one!! I wore that cassette out (and a CD).

Friend of mine got an original vinyl copy. I'm way more into the Jane Birkin album.


Reviews on Steve Hoffman say the vinyl anniversary reissue is very good.

I saw Jane Birkin live earlier this month at this show: http://www.brooklynvegan....-setlist/ Incroyable !


WOW!! biggrin

SOTT and Talking Book wouldn't because there are other works from the respective artists that are even more well-thought-of. Like Purple Rain and Songs In The Key Of Life.

In my opinion neither of them are better than the former albums. Perhaps you could make the case about PR being better than SOTT, however SITKOL is not as cohesive sound and lyrical wise as Talkin Book.


What the heck, I never thought of Talking Book quite like that.

I see where you coming from, still, he has so many great funky songs. Although in his later years his music has been sugar coated.
