Wonder proves himself in a formidable debut album. You feel sucked into a kids world of love and discovery for 30 minutes and forgetting a stumbly beginning with a couple uninspiring songs, the final leg of the album really stands it's ground both production wise and vocally.
This. is. Fucking. Crazy.

Wonder is obviously at his best from everything else he's released here. The singing and production keep a repetitive structure and vibe throughout in a good way. It's obvious, especially from my talking with Wonder, he's a soul of talent waiting to be discovered.
