Anniversary album: SONGS IN THE KEY OF LIFE – his 18th LP
Released: 28 September 1976 – 45 years ago
Pitchfork: “Songs in the Key of Life” was the culmination of a historic period of creativity
for Stevie Wonder. Its ambition and scope were unprecedented, and he never approached
its caliber or impact again… The album—two LPs plus an additional four-song EP—was the culmination of a historic period of creativity, a concentrated burst of music matched only by a handful of artists (mid-’60s Bob Dylan, early ’70s Rolling Stones, ’80s Prince). Its ambition and scope were unprecedented, its power and resonance were timeless—and when it was done, he never approached its caliber or impact again.” Full review here. Score: 10/10.
Turn Up The Volume: Michael Jackson called himself
the King of Pop, but Stevie Wonder is the King of Soul.
