I Want You and Let's Get It On are better than What's Going On, IMO.

>Funk
Stevie Wonder - Innervisions
Prince - Dirty Mind
>R&B/Soul
Marvin Gaye - I Want You
Aretha Franklin - Lady Soul
Janelle Monae - The ArchAndroid

>Disco
Donna Summer - Four Seasons of Love
Chic - Risque

I hate all of those genres.

Excpet maybe Soul, I can tolerate some Gil Scott-Heron.

It's a tie between those two so I flipped a coin, really. I mean Risque has My Feet Keep Dancing and My Forbidden Lover but C'est Chic has At Last I Am Free and I Want Your Love.

Plus, I feel like Good Times is slightly better than Le Freak. Only slightly though.

Disco was one of those genres that many people hopped on and led to some really bland pop hits, but actual Disco artists are fucking phenomenal. I dare anybody listen to I Feel love and say they dislike it.
>>
>>49171620
>At Last I Am Free
Not one I would have rated that highly. I think the vocals aren't very well executed. It's like something Funkadelic would do but I don't think they pulled it off that well.

The clarity of sound in this album is incredible. Every chord change is just dripping with intention, at every turn it's obvious that Stevie is a mastermind.
>>
>>49171702
Really? For me it's a song that I could totally see myself having a complete epiphany to. I could see why people wouldn't like the kinda campy vocal style though, perhaps?

By stating this board has no knowledge of these genres, therefore implying you had some yourself (otherwise I don't know how you can tell /mu/ has no knowledge about it, unless you're making some controversial shit for fun).
>>
>>49171882
I think it's gonna be hard to guess. He definitely has the critical respect down but he isn't as loved by fans of the genre as many of the other all time black music greats are.

This single is in my Top 10 songs ever

Bazuka - Dynomite
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wPbyDyDoIo
It's some kind of explosive Funk (insanely catchy)

One day after listening to it it got stuck in my head for the whole day to the point that it almost started to hurt. No joke.
11/10 song though.

Have you even heard Soul and R&B?
>>
kind of jazz fusion funk
>>
>Soul
I honestly prefer blue-eyed soul in general so my favorite soul album is actually Searching for the Young Soul Rebels. Most African soul (at least the classics) doesn't have much soul (I'm guessing this is merely a problem of the nature of a studio album as I imagine the live performances were great but even the live albums usually weren't). As an example, Otis Redding or James Brown or Aretha Franklin I've heard at least six or seven albums by each but on average each album isn't that good and the soul is only really obvious in their live performances.
>Funk
Probably Funkadelic's s/t though I do like Papa Was a Rollin' Stone and Sly & The Family Stone and other stuff of the period and of course punk funk like A Certain Ratio or something like Born Under Punches. Again, most funky classics aren't actually that funky.
>Disco
Giorgio Moroder, Chic or Michael Jackson, etc...I also like Saturday Night Fever, fight me.
>R&B
Modern R&B is an abomination, R&B in general refers to all these sorts of music and is kind of redundant. But blues, jazz and gospel are all better African genres.
>>
>>49172618
rhythm and blues is fucking amazing you shitdick

are you sure you're not confusing it with contemporary r&b
>>
Contemporary R&B isn't that bad, you guys. Yeah some of it does have a dime a dozen feel but so what? Erykah Badu, (early) Mary J Blige, Aaliyah, Kelis, D'angelo, R. Kelly, etc all have solid catalogues.
>>
>>49172836
I'm referring to both, but it's just that I think that Hip Hop does more to me than R&B

I love funk/soul but I swear I just don't get the appeal with this record.

Disagree. It's the worst of her 4 "classics"

Let's not act like her other albums matter aside from a few singles.
