Should've Been Cut Down To A Single Album...
on December 24, 2001
I'm a big Stevie Wonder fan because he is the master of melody, but I have to admit that "S.I.T.K.O.L." isn't very enthralling. Only one or two other reviewers had the same standpoint. I don't see why everyone keeps giving it 5 stars. Even though I like when artist put a lot of songs on an album, it's more the quality (as opposed to quantity) that I care about more. If Stevie would've have taken all the radio hits and a few other note-worthy songs and made them into a single album, that would've been much better. Instead I feel short-changed, sorting through the "not-so-captivating" songs just to hear the gems "Summer Soft" and "Another Star". Even the songs I actually like I skip towards the end because they trail on waaaaay too long (i.e. "Ordinary Pain" with its segueway, "Joy Inside My Tears" with its refrain, and "Black Man" with its Black Panther-esque chants). And what's up with "Saturn"? I mean it's a good song, but it's just plain weird. I'm sorry to say that you're not missing anything by passing this up at the store. Get either "Innervisions" or some greatest hits compilation if you really have to have some Stevie Wonder in your collection.
