Paul’s Perceptions-What’s Going On

Preconceptions: I like Marvin a lot, but I’m not sure if I’ve ever listened to this whole album straight through. I regard the title track What’s Going On as one of the greatest songs of all-time, if not the greatest, so I have that bias going in to it.

After Listening: A masterpiece and one of the most salient artistic anti-militarism creations in American history. Also, even though he was a depressed dude, I would love to be Marvin Gaye for 20 minutes. Someone else said that and I can’t remember who, but I agree with it.

Favorite: So what that it’s the most famous song, What’s Going On is clearly the star of this record.

Least: Save the Children

Overall: 4.8 Stars
