With all the aplomb and grandeur that pop music can muster, Stevie Wonder paints, in stunning detail and passion, a beautiful world for humanity, full of love and life. Even while warning us of this world's unattainability, Stevie dares us to strive and reach it, and we can't help but to take him up on his offer.
