The greatest album run in Motown history

Postby GoogaMooga » 29 Jun 2020, 17:37

I think it's down to two contenders: Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye.

Stevie:

Music of My Mind
Talking Book
Innervisions
Fulfillingness' First Finale
Songs in the Key of Life

Marvin:

What's Going on
Trouble Man
Let's Get it on
I Want you
Here, My Dear
In Our Lifetime

Clearly Stevie.
People go on too much about the privileged background of politicians but actually Matt Hancock had a very humble upbringing in an Italian workshop owned by a woodworker named Geppetto who turned him into a human boy.

Definitely Marvin.













I've tried with Stevie, he's just never really clicked with me. There's something about his sound that prevents me from loving his music - after about 3 or 4 songs I want to change to another artist. Marvin however produces albums that I can listen to all the way through.



As an artist I much prefer the work of Smokey Robinson to either Marvin or Stevie, but he struggles to put out more than 2 great albums in a row, though the three album run of Smokey, Pure Smokey and A Quiet Storm is excellent.

No no no it's neither.


Motown had better artists than those two losers.

Marvin for me, his highs are higher, I feel. Stevie's album run is perfect, but does not attain the same heights as the best from What's Goin' On.

I agree but will take Marvin over Stevie.
