Amazon.com

One of Stevie Wonder's best albums, and the one where his more fanciful, free-form moments gel perfectly with his knack for irresistible pop singles, 1973's Innervisions swings between delicate and airy ballads, Latin-influenced rhythms (the hit "Don't Worry 'Bout a Thing"), and his own synth-heavy versions of gut-bucket soul (the determined spiritual questing of "Higher Ground"). The striking juxtaposition between "Vision," a barely breathed hope that a world of peace might be upon us, and the great "Living for the City," a funky, pulsing tale of racism, is powerful, haunting, and still all too relevant. --David Cantwell

By Wayne Klein HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on April 3, 2012
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Stevie Wonder's music can be very frustrating for fans to collect in good sounding editions. The 2000 remasters sounded awful (to be chartiable they may have been played back and not decoded properly) compared to the Holy Grail until recently the Mobile Fidelity CD which, reportedly, is the ONLY version to use the original mastertape (it was an accident--Wonder's people provided that vs. a safety copy at the time at least it's rumored--for some reason they will not release the mastertape and haven't for ANY version except the Mofi).

The new Audio Fidelity version is a marked improvement over the 2000 reissue by Universal/Motown. The tonality is superior here and there isn't a hint of the post-production compressed used to jack up the 2000 edition. How does it compare to the Mofi? I have to be honest I had to compare it to a CD-R and not the original product but it does compare favorably. The Mofi is slightly more trebly but not necessarily in a bad way and the vocals were, to me, a bit clearer with a slightly better soundstage. As far as the SACD version I don't have it since it's not a hybrid (and I like to have those so I can rip it to my hard drive)although I have "heard" that it compares favorably beyond that, your mileage may vary.

The AF also has its merits as well--it lacks that slightly trebly quality (which may be a part of the original mastertape--I have no idea)without sounding veiled. Kevin Gray who did the remastering here has done a good job of capturing the essence of the recording based on the original vinyl and first CD mastering but with improved bass, depth, detail and less murkiness by comparison.

As to whether or not you should upgrade--it's totally up to how satisfied you are with the Mofi.

This is easily Stevie Wonder's best CD. Though his previous "breakout album" Talking Book did have some innovative tunes, to me it was hindered by a few overly sappy love songs. "Key of Life" is a great album, but isn't as concise. There is only one traditional love song on Innervisions ("All is Fair in Love" is a sad reflection on relationships, but certainly not a romantic ballad). Here's a track by track analysis
1) Too High: Jazzy cautionary tale about drug abuse and its consequences, but subtle enough not to be overtly preachy. It captures the feeling of an addict who exists only to "touch the sky" but never gets there. Outstanding drumming by Stevie (yes, he plays the DRUMS too!!).
2) Visions: Utterly stunning in its beauty. The acoustic guitar work is second to none.
3) Living for the City: The "epic" of the CD describes the tribulations of a man raised in poverty in the South only to find more poverty upon his migration to the city. Yeah, the interlude section is a little cheesy, but still effective and with great vocals as always.
4) Golden Lady: I love how this song keeps going up a key in the end, which signifies the yearning of the singer for his lady. What a great love song.
5) Higher Ground: Once again, outstanding drums and a very funky beat. Like most in my generation, I heard the RHCP cover first (which is a decent interpretation), but it didn't take long to me to realize that this is the definitive verision.
6) Jesus Children of America: Stevie boldly confronts religious fundamentalists, junkies, and even the listener, challenging all to "come clean," all while being backed by insistent gospel harmonies.

Listening to the sheer breadth of the music presented here, it's hard to believe Stevie Wonder was all of 23 when he released this masterpiece. Continuing a very fruitful collaboration with synth wizards Bob Marguleouff and Malcolm Cecil, Wonder made what is, in my opinion, his most accomplished album ever. Avoiding the artistic excesses that would threaten to topple his later works (1976's "Songs In The Key Of Life" being the most notable example), Stevie perfected his sound, production and vocal delivery on these 9 flawless numbers. "Too High" opens with a bouncing, funky bass/synth line that remains the focal point throughout this jazzy, bracing track which also features superb backing vocals by Lani Groves and Jim Gilstrap. Stevie's cymbal-accented drumming and keyboard work are also miracles unto themselves. This knockout opener segues directly into "Visions" a heartbreakingly beautiful acoustic number envisioning a perfect, "milk and honey land, where hate is a dream, and love forever stands". Sung with an almost childlike innocence, Stevie concludes each verse with the longing question "is this a vision in my mind?" Positively breathtaking. (Special Note: Before the final verse, after a brief pause in the music as the vibes and guitars fade momentarily into silence, listen as Stevie takes a deep breath before continuing the vocal passage, it almost breaks your heart.) This vision of utopia is abruptly interrupted by the looming, deep, almost ominous sounding synthesizer intro to the timeless "Living For The City" (remember Spike Lee's brilliant use of this in "Jungle Fever", and how it blew away every other song in the movie?Read more ›
