Given Gaye's penchant for material of a sensual nature, one might expect an album with a title like ADULTS ONLY to be downright pornographic. Fortunately or unfortunately, that is not the case. ADULTS ONLY, while taking as its themes the topic of love's joys and perils, is cool, soulful, romantic, and surprisingly clean crooning at its best. The hugely popular and unbelievably great "Sexual Healing," which possesses an unbridled sensuous groove surpassed only by the artist's '60s hit, "Let's Get It On," sets the mood for what is to come.
Heartfelt ballads--"I Live For You" and the richly orchestrated "Walkin' In The Rain"-are delivered with Gaye's inimitably sweet and restrained vocal style. These are counterbalanced by the light funk of "Joy," with its loose bassline and horn punctuations, and by the serious themes woven into the infectious groove tapestry of "Ain't It Funny (How Things Turn Around)." Lovers of the truly down n' dirty may be disappointed--and would be better served by seeking out Gaye's DREAM OF A LIFETIME, which contains such unblushing tracks as "Savage In The Sack"-but ADULTS ONLY is a superb collection of Gaye's latter-period soul artistry.
