Stevie Wonder: A Time To Love

Alfred Soto, Stylus, 4 November 2005

LIKE BRYAN FERRY, Stevie Wonder has been worshipping at the altar of love for so long that he's forgotten that Eros likes his faithful to bump 'n' grind once in a while. "Long" is the operative word: it's been more than 10 years since Wonder's last album — the charming, inconsequential album Conversation Piece — and the charming, inconsequential A Time To Love is a long one, as in fifteen songs, most averaging five minutes. How long, o Lord, how long?

Total word count of piece: 492
