Stevie Wonder: Fulfillingness' First Finale (Motown)

Danny Goldberg, Hit Parader, January 1975

THERE IS more of the 'Sunshine Of My Life' ballad side of Stevie Wonder on this new LP than the rocking 'Living In The City'. With that slant, it is another Wonder masterwork, another piece of the superb popular musicianship which makes him the world's most universal musical artist. Not since the prime of Ray Charles' career has anyone expressed so perfectly and innovatively the range of funkiness to middle of the road that has been Wonder's hallmark for years.
