Stevie Wonder's Songs in the Key of Life is undeniably brilliant. 'Isn't She Lovely', 'Sir Duke', 'As' are some of the tracks you may recognize. You will also recognize 'I Wish' and 'Pastime Paradise' from their being recently sampled and made into hit songs. On this album Stevie reaches his peak as a lyricist. In 'Village Ghetto Land' and 'Black Man' he takes on racism. On 'Sir Duke' he tells of the influence of jazz on his music, in particullar, Duke Ellington. With 'Have a Talk With God' he gives advice for anyone who is having trouble. This is a massive album, that casts it shadow over the entire musical landscape.
