“The conversation is peace,” Stevie Wonder insists. He’s talking about world peace, a utopian state in which problems like poverty and war don’t exist. It’s an unrealistic fantasy. Human nature doesn’t work that way. But Stevie Wonder is a visionary, so he continues to spread benevolent messages thru music.
If you’re listening for the magic melodies of past albums, you’re in for a disappointment. These songs; meticulously produced, sometimes to the point of bloatedness; are mostly inferior. Exceptions include Robins Will Sing and Cold Chill, both of which serve as worthy additions to the Stevie Wonder song archive.
