"What had been hinted at on the intriguing project Music of My Mind was here focused into a laser beam of tight songwriting, warm electronic arrangements, and ebullient performances -- altogether the most realistic vision of musical personality ever put to wax...Like no other Stevie Wonder LP before it, Talking Book is all of a piece, the first unified statement of his career...imitating life, it veers breathtakingly from love to heartbreak and back with barely a pause." - John Bush, allmusic.com
