CD Reviews

K. R Sadler | Philadelphia, PA United States | 07/30/2004

"Thirty years after the original release I still have all these songs dancing around in my head. WDAS-FM in Philly used to play this all through the mid 70's. I had the vinyl and lost it to a girl from school, BIG MISTAKE! So sad that Syreeta has passed. However, this cd will be played for years to come.

Ranks up with Stevie's other 70's masterpieces.

"This album is really an unofficial Stevie Wonder LP, and it fits right in with his other masterworks like Talking Book and Innervisions.

This album is clearly about the rise and fall of their short-lived marriage, and ensuing friendship. It's one of the few albums I've listened to where I actually can "feel" what the artist is trying to convey. "Heavy Day" and "Cause We've Ended Now As Lovers" are as emotionally sung as any songs I've ever heard.

All in all, it's a great album, and if you are a fan of Stevie's 70s work, you really should keep an eye out for this.

This album was recently reissued along with her first LP in a limited edition 78 minute CD. It can be found at the link below."

"On her second album, Syreeta steps forward as a talented vocalist and lyricist while Stevie Wonder tones down his bag of synthesizer tricks. Compared to the laid-back feel of SYREETA, STEVIE WONDER PRESENTS SYREETA is bouncy, giggly, flirty and reflective. "Cause We've Ended As Lovers" later a signature piece for guitar god Jeff Beck, "Just a Little Piece Of You", and the intense "I Wanna Be By Your Side" (with former Spinners lead singer G.C. Cameron during that group's Motown tenure), are the best ballads on the album, while the reggae-like "Your Kiss Is Sweet", the humourous interlude "When Your Daddy's Not Around", the sexy "Come and Get This Stuff" and the funky political rant "I'm Going Left" effectively showcase Syreeta's ability to handle any kind of musical style or emotion with ease. And the album ends with a bang with "Universal Sound Of The World" featuring a horn arrangement that would make Earth, Wind and Fire jealous."
