Stevie Wonder - Characters (1999) Retail CD
The 80s were never very kind to Stevie Wonder. After his run of Grammy Award winning, mega selling 70s albums, success didn't come as easily in the 80s. It could have been down to Mr Wonder losing his "genius"; it could've been down to him being tired - he'd released albums at a furious rate - or, and I believe this is what it actually is - he'd discovered the world's appetite for 80s synth-pop! So, leaving his 70s work aside, let's examine 'Characters' against the environment in which it was released. Yes, it is very heavy on the synth' sound, but most of the biggest albums of the 80s were: Michaelmore… Jackson's 'Bad', Janet Jackson's 'Control', Madonna's 'First Album'. It seems that Stevie just wanted to play along with the rest of the pop kids rather than inspiring and leading as he did in the 70s. Standout tracks include: 'You Will Know, 'Dark and Lovely', 'Skeletons', 'One of a Kind', 'Free' and the Michael Jackson duet 'Get It'. I wouldn't buy this album as an introduction to Stevie; I would buy 'Talking Book', 'Innervisions' or his 'Definitive Collection' first. If he becomes a favourite of yours then buy this. Or then again, if you have an open mind when it comes to music and you can appreciate that this was the eighties, buy it and revel in the cheesy drum loops and hand claps!!
