In Square Circle by Stevie Wonder
Released: Sep 1985
Label: Motown Records
Stevie Wonder is such a genius that even his subpar albums have moments of pleasure. Despite its thinly conceived urban pop, In Square Circle bears hidden treasures like the anti-apartheid message of "It's Wrong," a thematic sequel to his historic MLK holiday anthem "Happy Birthday," and the lovely "Whereabouts," where he sings in a melodic lilt, "My whereabouts are somewhere lost in yesterday with you." The cloying hit "Part-Time Lover" is saved by a Luther Vandross cameo on backing vocals, but "Land of La La" sounds like a yuppie knockoff of "Living for the City."
