After the blahh of "Woman In Red", at least Stevie's "In Square Circle" holds true to the Stevie form. It still at times sounds a little too electronic, but so did most of '80's. Stevie just got pulled in. Not to say that this album isn't good, in fact, at times it's great. Songs like the massive hit "Part-Time Lover", "Whereabouts" "Land Of La La" and "Go Home" are just short of stunning. My two favorites are "I Love You Too Much" and "Overjoyed", having that pure Stevie Wonder sound. Even how the songs mesh together makes it feel authentic. Even though not a classic, it's still a very good album.
