WAY Underrated!!!!!!!

"Hey Wonder fans!Come back to 1987 and take a revisit to Wonder's most underrated album I can think of!"Characters" thankfully came before Wonder's sad daliance with dull New Jack
swing arrangements on some of his 1990's albums and makes a much
improved follow up to the unfocused "In Square Circle".Similar sound,MUCH better songwriting.From the sad but memorable "You Will Know",the stomping funk of "Dark And Lovely"the Micahel
Jackson duet "Get It","My Eyes Don't Cry" and the classic
"Skeletons",this album is packed with corkers!And no filler-the latinish "Crying Through The Night",the Supreme's-like "In Your Corner" and the roadhouse R&B of "Come Let Me Make Your Love Come Down" are ticklish highlites while the fabulous
"Galaxy Paradise","Free" and the pulsing ballad "Each Beat Of My Heart" are quintessencial Wonder tunes that (as usual) seem to defy catagorization.And he even has time to throw in a classic pop/R&B tune in "One Of A Kind".This is also one of Stevie's few albums seemingly aimed primarily at the 1980's urban Afro Amercian audience-perhapes a sad reminder of the album's seeming lack of universal success.But that doesn't make ANY of it's 12 cuts any less potent so "Characters" is STILL an all-time Wonder classic!"

"This album is the last of Stevie Wonder's 80's projects. This album was preceded by hit albums such as HOTTER THAN JULY,THE WOMAN IN RED movie soundtrack and IN SQUARE CIRCLE. YOU WILL KNOW would later appear on the 1996 compilation SONG REVIEW. GET IT,a duet with Michael Jackson is a reciprocation for Wonder collaborating with Jackson on JUST GOOD FRIENDS from Jackson's BAD album,released in 1987 as this album. All the other songs are good."

"Characters comes across right the first time you listen to it whether it is the the soothing melody of social awareness that is found in "You will know"or the roaring umph that pulls the "Skeletons" out of your closet. Each beat of my heart is another one of those beautiful love songs that Stevie will make you sing and cry to. This song will definitley be played or sang at my wedding. The collaboration with B.B.King on "Come let me make your love come down" is slammin and rocking. AS so the hook-up with Michael Jackson on "Get it". Check out "Free" 1000 words can not describe this album it is a "Galaxy Paradise""
