I especially dig this release and give this album four stars, because I believe that this album, unploished though it may be, gives you rare candid insight into the mind and heart of Marvin Gaye -- the man. Some of the tracks were songs meant to be released for his next album, while others were songs that remained in the can....but they all seem to show a deeper and perhaps somewhat tortured side of Marvin that you didn't see in earlier releases (not even Here, My Dear).
You hear the spiritual side, (Life's Opera, Dream of a Lifetime), the scandalous, yet humourous side (Masochistic Beauty, Savage in the Sack, Santified Lady), and the tortured, emotional side(those would be his Motown tracks, It's Madness and Symphony). My only complaint about this release is that the producers censored some of the content and took away from the genuineness of the material (e.g. Savage in the Sack was originally meant to be called "Them Niggers are Savages in the Sack" and Sanctified Lady was to be "Santified Pussy" clearly both were overdubbed for political correctness.).
Be it as it may, this album should have been a greater classic than allowed...because it showcased the man...the true genius and mind of Marvin Gaye

No, it's not What's Going On, Let's Get It On or I Want You but still one of his best. I bought the album in 1985 and was glad it was released on CD. I bought the CD also. Read morePublished on January 23, 2006 by Landis
