Includes "Isn't She Lovely". Songs in the Key of Life (1976) was the highest high point of Stevie Wonder's career. More sprawling than Innervisions and Talking Book, this two-LP-plus-EP was also less of a consistent stunner than either of those masterworks. This album is probably in the top 10 of every music fan in existence. It was the first album I fell in love with as a 15yo kid when it came out, and if it's not my all-time fave still, it's right near the top. It has everything. First off, being a double-album means it's filled with a lot of music, which is a huge bonus when an album is really good (or great, such as this one is).

A prominent figure in popular music during the latter half of the 20th century, Wonder has recorded more than thirty top ten hits, won 22 Grammy Awards, plus one for lifetime achievement, won an Academy Award for Best Song and been inducted into both the Rock and Roll and Songwriters halls of fame

Find out more about the artist and the album. gr A Funk, Soul, Jazz & R&B digital record collection. One of those rare double albums (double and a half, really, since it originally came out on 2LPs and an EP), Songs In the Key of Life might just be Stevie Wonder’s true masterpiece. Rarely have I found such an uplifting set of songs which manage to avoid schmaltz and address hard political issues whilst at the same time maintaining an upbeat attitude. It’s almost impossible not to have your spirits lifted when it comes on, and musically speaking it’s also incredibly adventurous, with Stevie not only knocking out some all-time soul classics but also dabbling in funk, jazz fusion, a little prog.
