All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
While it's not quite the definitive compilation it could have been, the double-disc Song Review: A Greatest Hits Collection is still a good overview of Stevie Wonder's long, prolific career. Skipping over "Fingertips, Pt. 2" and picking up with "Uptight Everything's Alright" and "I Was Made to Love Her," Song Review runs through the next three decades, hitting most of his biggest hits along the way, including "Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours," "Superstition," "You Are the Sunshine of My Life," "Higher Ground," "Living for the City," "I Wish," "Master Blaster Jammin'," "Ebony & Ivory," "I Just Called to Say I Love You," and "Part-Time Lover." ...

Unfortunately, none of the songs are presented in chronological order. It begins in the '80s, switches to the '70s, hits the '80s again before going back to the '60s -- in other words, it's not really coherent. Nevertheless, most of Wonder's best-known and a good cross-section of his very best songs are included, making Song Review a fine, but not perfect, introduction to his career.

    Stevie ''The Great'' Wonder

    I LOOOVE Sir. Wonder, he is a musical genius. He has paved the way for artists like myself, to create music that can be heard for years & years to come. His writing, his vocal talent, and his passion for music is for everyone's enjoyment. I hope that he'll compose more wonderful music in the future, but if not I am satisfied thus far.

    Stevie Wonder is Notre Cherie Amour.

    Okay, so this whole album doesn¿t have a chronological order. Yet he is da bomb, and so are many of these songs.
