Stevie Wonder - Fulfillingness' First Finale

Released in 1974, Fulfillingness' First Finale was the 20th album from Stevie Wonder. Smack dab in the center of Stevie's "Classic" funk era he released this album right after another classic, Innervisions.

While the sound is a more mellow than his previous effort, this album continues to show Wonder's ability to write, arrange and sing his songs like only he can. Songs like Heaven Is 10 Zillion Light Years Away and Boogie On Reggae Woman show a real diversity throughout the album that other artists just weren't able to do at the time. I've never really felt stifled and bored listening to Stevie Wonder's music, as opposed to other albums released around this period by artists like the Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin.

Stevie Wonder has always been a soulful kind of guy, with a great pop edge, and Fulfillingness' First Finale is just another essential album from Stevie Wonder. It went to #1 when it was released, and it still sounds great.
