By the time CHARACTERS was released in 1987, Stevie Wonder had gone from being a child prodigy to a leader of the politically charged '70s soul movement to a pop balladeer again in the '80s. By assimilating everything he had learned over the past 20 some years, he had developed into a world-class songwriter and producer. CHARACTERS displays every side of his musical personality, from the funky ("Skeletons"), to the tender ("With Each Beat Of My Heart") to the poppy ("Get It," which features Michael Jackson).
His social conscience is in full display on "Dark 'n' Lovely" and "Skeletons." Perhaps the most poignant is in the opening track "You Will Know," where he explores the problems of drugs and single parenthood but offers hope with a simple phrase; "Problems have solutions." No matter what the subject matter, Stevie sings with an honesty and conviction that is rare in an artist that has been around so long. And hearing B.B. King and Stevie Ray Vaughn trading fours on "Come Let Me Make Your Love Come Down" is worth the price of admission.
