Fulfillingness' First Finale

by Stevie Wonder

Play on Rhapsody
Released:
Label: Motown
While Innervisions and Talking Book garner fawning fan attention (because they are freakin' brilliant), one of early-'70s Stevie's most gorgeous works slips by unheralded. Fulfillingness' is at turns poignant, scathing and soulful, personal and political, buoyant with gospel overtones, slathered with Motown horns and funky organ, tragic with adult ennui. Just check the emotional span between "It Ain't No Use" -- with the refrain "bye-bye, bye-bye" -- and "Please Don't Go," possibly the most amorous four minutes ever put to wax.
