Review #1: What’s Going On, Marvin Gaye

#1: What’s Going On, Marvin Gaye

I heard this album for the first time at the start of a 25-hour road trip. I got lost in a major city during the first half. My familiarity with the music was pretty low, so my first listening experience of the Greatest Album of All Time (according to RS Magazine) was a little anxiety-inducing. Even on a relisten, I felt like I was constantly missing my turn.
