My all-time #2 album.

1 | Living for the City (Top 20)
2 | He's Misstra Know-It-All (Top 200)
3 | All in Love Is Fair (Top 1000)
4 | Don't You Worry 'Bout a Thing (Top 1500)
5 | Higher Ground (Top 2000)
6 | Golden Lady (Top 3000)
7 | Visions (Top 4000)
8 | Too High (Just missed Top 6000)

Mostly great songs here, and the last two are really awfully good. A masterpiece of a record.

On listening again, this album flows pretty well. Consistent album (for me all tracks besides "Jesus Children" are at least 7/10), but I feel very strongly that Songs in the Key of Life eats this album for breakfast.

02 | Visions
03 | Living for the City
04 | Golden Lady
01 | Too High
05 | Higher Ground
07 | All in Love Is Fair
08 | Don't You Worry 'bout a Thing
09 | He's Misstra Know-It-All
06 | Jesus Children of America

That Anders Petersen photo should be a fun one.

The song "Visions" is not only my favourite one on this album but also my favourite one from SW's carreer.
Probably in my top 50 songs ever.
