Vulnerable by Marvin Gaye
Released: Apr 1997
Marvin Gaye kept returning to this set of ballad standards for years, tinkering with his multilayered vocals over Bobby Scott's sweeping orchestral charts. Gaye meant this to be in the style of his idols -- Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra -- but instead of recording "live in the studio" like they did, his fractured, multitracked vocal lines obscure the emotional text.
