Review Summary: Feel-Good Album? Check.

Being blind from infancy is no easy thing. However, one man decided that his inability to see wouldn't hold him back in his dream of making music. That man was Stevie Wonder. Stevie Wonder had a very soulful sound in his music, and this is shown here completely. Starting with the song "Too High", Stevie Wonder begins this album with a cymbal crash, then him singing "I'm too high, ooh ooh." Throughout the song, Stevie Wonder conveys a message of drug abuse. I bet you every stoner rapper went crazy over this song's message, as Stevie is explaining how high he is, so high that he sees "a little cartoon monster coming out the TV screen." Moving on, we encounter the album's two most famous songs. Those songs are "Living For The City" and "Higher Ground". Living For The City describes an unemployed African-American trying to find a job in New York City, but he ends up getting arrested and in a jail cell. Public Enemy sampled a segment of the song very shortly for one of their most popular songs. We all have heard Higher Ground at one point. This song is so funky that the Red Hot Chili Peppers covered it for their album Mother's Milk. Innervisions has a feel-good vibe to it, and you should pick it up if you want to get into Soul.

The review is a little short, reads more like a soundoff. Great album though.

review is well-written, but not pos-worthy

I prefer Songs in the Key of Life.

I love the direction you took this at the start...but then you kind of squandered it by limiting your review to a measly paragraph.

Would love to have seen you develop this more....

Short reviews, fuck yeah. Jks.

It's a well written review, so I'll pos' it. However, this is almost short enough to be a soundoff...
