 "Wonder's appeal now crosses every boundary. His music always sounds free and, at his best, he does things no one else can. Living for the City has the most compelling — pounding, throbbing, unyielding — beat to be heard anywhere at all. A master stylist and arranger, his music has grace, a studied balance, that does more than just set off each cut in perfect harmony with its neighbours. Indeed Innervisions may be close to a concept album as Stevie will ever produce." Rolling Stone
".....that was the first album that just completely flipped my wig. It felt so intimate, so warm, so natural and so spiritual. Every song and every melody was a masterpiece; every instrument, every lick Stevie plays. He’s one of my favourite drummers. People talk about his piano playing or his singing or his harmonic playing. That record did it for me." Lenny Kravitz
 "Stevie Wonder's creative juices are in full flood, his musical innovations matched by a lyrical maturity that couched bitter political sentiments in their most palatable form in songs such as Big Brother, Living For The City and He's Misstra Know-It-All, yet found transcendence in his most blissful love songs yet, with You Are The Sunshine Of My Life, Lookin' For Another Pure Love and All In Love Is Fair."
