Fulfillingness' first finale by Stevie Wonder( Recording )

While the phrase, "greatest album" is a useless distinction for the great Stevie Wonder, the material here finds him at a pinnacle of his more introspective songwriting mode. This music is spirited. Stevie sings out on a seamless array of love declarations ("Creepin") and social protestations ("You Haven't Done Nothin"). The melodies are simple and evocative, spiced with jazzy harmonies. Throughout, Stevie provides excellent interplay between foreground and background, rounding out his vocal and keyboard flights with haunting overdubs. Perhaps most outstanding is the moving reverie, "Heaven Is," a hand-clapping groove on the divine. Few soulsters can be quite as mesmerizing as Stevie with a line like, "Love is so a-ma-zing."
