Stevie Wonder - (Music From The Movie) Jungle Fever - 1991 - Motown

Despite all of the hype surrounding it, the soundtrack to Jungle Fever is Stevie Wonder's best work in years. Although it can't compare to Wonder's glory days, Jungle Fever is a considerable improvement from his bland late-'80s albums. Wonder still borders on saccharine on his ballads, although even the sappiest of them ("These Three Words") is never as sickening as "I Just Called to Say I Love You." While the keyboard funk of "Chemical Love," "Gotta Have You," and "Queen in the Black" doesn't sound new, it does sound alive, which is better than Wonder has sounded in years. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine © 2012 Rovi Corp | All Rights Reserved http://www.allmusic.com/album/jungle-fever-mw0000674863

"Jungle Fever" is the 1991 soundtrack album to Spike Lee's award winning movie Jungle Fever which tackled the thorny and complex subject of interracial love. "Jungle Fever", "Gotta Have You", "Fun Day" and "These Three Words" were chart hits and the album topped the R&B Albums chart for two weeks. "Lighting Up the Candles", was written as a tribute to Wonder's friend Marvin Gaye, who died in 1984. The album is full of great songs, and is not so thematic that you need to see the movie to appreciate the lyrics or enjoy the music. Stevie has almost always included a "sugary" ballad on his albums, and this album is no exception. However, the guy is such a brilliant songwriter that he has always managed to write these songs with style. Stevie's "I Just Called To Say I Love You" is a bit on the "sweet" side, but there's no denying that it's a brilliantly written pop song with a beautiful melody that will always be a pop standard. Stevie Wonder has penned many songs like that, along with some of the best soul, funk, and R&B music ever written. Soundtrack albums are often overlooked, but "Jungle Fever" is a great Stevie Wonder album and HR by A.O.O.F.C [All tracks @ 320 Kbps: File size = 122 Mb]
