So... I've never been into the smooth smooth stylin's of Mr. Gaye. But this album is really interesting. It's got the smooth sound you'd expect but, if you take a moment to listen to the lyrics, they're REALLY raw. Apparently, half of the earnings of this album were forfeited to his ex-wife even before he wrote it... so he wrote it about her. And damn. He put it all out there. Lyrics like, "You don't have the right to use the son of mine/To keep me in line/One thing I can't do without/Is the boy whom God gave to both of us" are balanced in the same song with "May love ever protect you/May peace come into your life." It's a really fascinating record, honestly. Not something I foresee myself listening to again but an album that I ended up enjoying while I listened to it.

This album is fucking boring. I don't care what it's about. He can whine about his divorce all he wants, it's not a good album. Pretty telling that no one cared about it until he died. More proof that posthumous acclaim is pretty much always unwarranted. And it goes FOREVER, fucking hell. 2/5.

This is my first time listening to this album.The late 70's is such an interesting time for music. The big legacy acts were putting out their most unusual and experimental albums. Either due to their ability to flex creativity control, their bordom with their old style or in this case, Marvin needed to finalize his divorce and he was gonna make just the album he felt like. Fuck you bitch is a simple concept but effective at bringing something out of Marvin. Marvin's funk is a light funk and I dig it. It feels slow and gentile comparied to the heavy funk or Parliament or James Brown. Like every good concept album, this album is meant to be enjoyed as a whole. It would be perfect to own on vinyl and enjoy on a lazy afternoon. The first two tracks start things off slowly. Lacking much of a hook or a resolution to the melody, its sounds like they are asking you to chill. But from there it builds, getting funking and faster but still remaining gentile with Marvin's sweet voice leading the way. I'd let Marvin slow funk me again anytime. Especially if its leads to "Time to get together" and "A Funky Space Reincarnation".

Another incredible album by Marvin Gaye. This album takes us through his divorce and the wide ranging emotions that come with that. He oscillates from expressing anger, reconciliation, sadness, defensiveness and finally acceptance. His vocals are tortured and magnificent. I loved the use of thematic grounding around the phrase ‘When did you stop loving me, when did I stop loving you.’ It’s gives the album a sense of unity to persist through the roller coaster of sheer emotion

Dayum this was so good! I absolutely loved how long and repetitive some of these songs were. Had a few problems with some of his whining about women, and that's kind of all he's got. Some were more positive.. but overall. Enjoyed - put me in such a good mood

I've been patiently waiting for some Marvin Gaye, particularly What's Going On. I actually just heard about this album a couple days ago, but hadn't heard it. It's really, really great. Marvin has such a soulful voice, there's a lot of life and pain in there, but it's still groovy. Interesting that he gave up promoting this album after it was deemed "too commercial." So many tracks on here that I loved immediately. Ironically, though, the one song I've heard before ("When Did You Stop Loving Me") I don't like. That song is featured on the "blonded" radio station in GTA and it's one of the few that I will tune away from. It just doesn't do anything for me, and yet I had to hear it three different ways on one album. Despite that, I loved this. I recognize the classic status. Favorite tracks: I Met a Little Girl (amazing track), Everybody Needs Love, Anger, Here My Dear. Album art: Never even seen this before, but I really dig it. Marvin immortalizing himself as a statue looks pretty funny, but it's a very cool art style. 4.5/5

Pure pleasure to my ears. A while back I had listened to "What's Going On" since it topped Rolling Stones chart and I really enjoyed it but never dove into his other albums. This one was awesome. I'll be exploring this one again to find some favorites but When Did you Stop Loving Me is an early stand out, as is a lot of the album. Very glad this came on a Friday especially with the week we've had with bad albums. Incredible album cover too. Is Rome/Greece burning down because of his love? Who knows but I'm here for it.

I think this is objectively excellent but not to my tastes so it's gotta be a four star rating for me. It's soothing, and it's like Marvin is making love to my ears, but I think what I prefer is music that is more energetic or bouncy. Marvin's voice is great and relaxing, but it feels more like it's background music, and he's a fly-on-the-wall singing over it. Although it has loads of complexity to it (and the bass lines are bouncy to be fair) it still manages to feel a little samey to me across the album so not sure I can listen to it properly a second time without losing interest. Shout out to "A Funky Space Reincarnation", real cool.

Very smooth and light. A lot of "Romance/Flirt" vibes going on, but mainly it has a quite nice groove of a "low pace" funk that you can relax to. The voice blends well with the band style with some extra "talking lyrics" every now and again, which adds to the vibe. Clearly worth 5 stars but not something I really listen too much, hence 4 stars for me.

I’ve never heard this album or any of its songs before today. Being a Marvin Gaye album, and one that I knew was well regarded, I had high expectations. It met them. I can tell that this is an album I will need to hear at least a few times to fully appreciate it, but it’s very good. Alternates between more classic RnB and disco/funk w/ ease. I like this. So this is getting 4 stars, but it’s really 4.5, maybe even upwards of 4.8. It only gets 4 stars in relation to the other Marvin Gaye albums that I know are going to be on this list

I've known the story behind this album for quite a while but never actually sat down to listen to it. It's very, very bitter. Still maintains a solid groove, and once you get past the first two songs and understand what you're in for, it's really a great album.

I normally associate Marvin Gaye with soulful, baby-making music, even though his best song is a political anthem about hardship and strife. This album turns that notion on its head with a lot of anger and vitriol towards the ending of a relationship. As far as break up albums go though, it’s unbelievably classy. Horn work is phenomenal and Gaye’s voice is still as comforting as ever even when he’s spitting out his feelings. Fave tracks: “You can leave but it’s going to cost you” “Sparrow” “Time To Get It Together”

Kolejny album pana Marvina, tym razem z roku 78 i o wiele potezniejszy woljumowo, bo az 73 minuty muzyki na 14 trakach, gatunkowo jest to nadal funkowy soul, ale odczucia po przesluchaniu plyty sa zupelnie inne niz po lets get it on i jego sexualowym healingiem, tak tutaj jest zupelnie inny nastroj, bo tez okolicznosci nagrywania inne, bo na poczatku kariery jego muza byla zona Anna, ale z biegiem lat i zostaniu symbolem sexualnego healingu ich relacje zaczely podupadac, kto by pomyslal, az musialo dojsc do rozwodu i majatkowych wojen, na dzieciaka oczywiscie, w takiej atmosferze pan Gaye stworzyl album na ktorym wylal z siebie wszystko na temat tego rozwodu, a raczej historii tego malzenstwa, wiec jest to koncept album opowiadajacy cala historie pary, od szalenczej milosci do szalenczej zazdrosci przepelnionej chciwoscia, a jak przystalo na utalentowanego liryka opowiesc jest przedstawiona w sposob ciekawy, choc oczywiscie dosc jednostronny, nie brak tutaj sarkastycznego chylenia czola przez glowna antagonistka krazka, czy wywolywania jej po imienu jak na traku annas song, o ile poprzednia plyta emanuje stworzona persona sex mastera, tak tutaj wydaje mi sie, ze pokazuje sie prawdziwy pan Marvin, zmarnowany zyciem, bo co z bycia sex masterem, jak musi sie ciagac po sadach, bedac przy tym publiczna atrakcja, bo medialnie rowniez musialo mu sie dostac, jak przystalo na hameryke, no i kolejny raz wychodzi na to, ze im material bardziej osobisty tym lepszy jakosciowo, muzycznie nadal tworzy podobnie, wiec w nagrania zangazowana byla masa sesyjnych muzykow ktorzy tworza midtempowe funkowe beaty skomponowane przez Marvina, roznica jest takze w tym, ze ma on swoje udzialy w instrumentalach, a nie jedynie wokalnie, wiec gra on klawisze, basa, synthy, najlepiej jak wiki mowi o tym, ze nie chcial nagrac on nic dlugiego, dobrego, ciezkiego, bo przeciez baba i tak wezmie kase za album na dzieciaka, a wyszedl tak dlugi, ciezki, jakosciowy material, jak dla mnie magnum opus Gayeowy, bo nie slyszalem wczesniej kompletnej opowiesci zwiazku opowiedzianej w tak funkowy sposob, na plejke leci i met a little girl oraz is that enough

I haven’t ever listened to a Marvin Gaye album, so to get the one that was “a critical and commercial failure” on its release as my first - and the one that was inspired by and recorded in the midst of a very nasty divorce - would probably not have been my personal choice for my first Marvin Gaye album. As soon as I hit play this promised to be a smooth and lovely ride no matter what the subject matter. But very quickly one couldn’t help but notice the lyrics… The pain of breakup and divorce is front and center in the lyrics. These songs don’t hide behind any allegories or metaphors. Marvin’s working things out front and center. How can such raw emotions sound so smooth?! I can see how one could be put off by six minute song that works through a lot of relationship shit (“When Did You Stop Loving Me?”). I started to feel a little uncomfortable, like Marvin Gaye pulled up a barstool and started confiding in me way too personally about his life. But I’m transfixed and staying put… “barkeep - another round please!” “A Funky Space Reincarnation” was a bit of an odd inclusion - some kind of space fantasy tangent thrown in the midst - but I did like the song. How about the title?! “Here, My Dear.” The PERIOD is in the title. Like he was gonna drop this off on her doorstep and leave without saying a word. A TWO ALBUM set of songs rehashing everything. “Here, My Dear.” I wonder if she ever listened to this? This is one really unique album. Anger, resentment, love, sadness, bitterness, regret, desperation, hope… it’s a wild roller coaster ride of emotions set to great arrangements with great musical performances. It’s definitely a one-sided view of divorce. What a way to work through a breakup!

This is a thing. Lots of feelings here, most of them unpleasant: heartbreak, longing, regret, despair, bitterness (though he doth protest), and a track literally called Anger. But there's also genuine love, contrition, hope, and redemption, not to mention a Funky Space Reincarnation. There are worse ways to process a break-up than making your art. It's obviously completely one-sided --- it made me really want to hear her side of the story. It's very interesting how literal some of the lyrics are. ("Why do I have to pay attorney fees?") It's like listening to someone else in therapy. Lyrics aside, this kind of R&B isn't my favorite and I do better with it in small doses. I doubt that I will ever want to hear the whole thing again, but I can appreciate its place in the history of American music. Fascinating.

I'm glad I did put it off it is just what I needed to relax and wind down after two stressful weeks of projects, papers, and exams.

There's nothing quite like when a skilled songwriter and sensitive artist is blessed with a voice so warm and smooth that can melt butter. I don't listen to Marvin Gaye a lot, but every time I do there is this incredible richness evident in his music. This album portrays the struggle of a love that has failed beautifully, traipsing through the sadness, anger, rejection, defiance, reminiscence, and acceptance with a style of music that is probably best described as sad disco. 4/5 I'd prefer that this were not a double album, because I have shit to do, but they didn't have the internet in the 70s, so I can understand why artists placed less emphasis on valuing people's time

Hier stehe ich wieder vor dem selben Problem: ich steh nicht auf Soul. Eigentlich sprechen mich wenige Genres an, die nicht ein leichtes Bluten im Gehörgang auslösen. Nichtsdestotrotz war ich natürlich so happy, dieses Album anzuhören. Ein Album, das man nicht nebenzu hören kann, da es keinerlei Unterschied zwischen den Songs gibt. Immer dieselbe rauchige Stimmung. Wäre ich Vanilla, wärs sicherlich was für sexy times, aber leider nein. Trotzdem sicherlich ein solides Album. Höre ich mir trotzdem nicht mehr an.

As with everyone, definitely looked forward to this. As this is only the 3rd full album that I'm reviewing on here, I'm starting to see how hard it is to rate fairly with only 24 hours. As always, those sexy vibes flow through this album, wah wahing away in the first and title track. I like the vibe of this album (as with most Marvin) but I'm going to have to give a middle 3 here as I haven't listened to it enough really. Feel like I'll regret this in the future but this is the harsh reality of the daily ratings.

In the past, me and Marv have not got along (barring a very obvious song or two) but this may have turned the tables. Maybe it's the bit of knowledge I have about the album's creation myth*, maybe it's just that it's beautifully lazy in the kind of way that makes it sound like Gaye's guard is really down. Either way, I boogied. *As I understand it, Gaye was getting divorced and his wife was due a lot of future album royalties, so he set out to make the worst album he could, preparing next to nothing, in the hope the album would flop. However, when he got into the studio he couldn't stop himself making great music. Moral of the story no one needed: by and large, great musicians are A-holes.

Alright Marvin, let’s see what you’ve got. Oh wow, this is smooth. It all just sounds so easy, riding those grooves. Then listening to it with the above info (that this was recorded in the wake of a messy divorce) you can actually hear the heartbreak, the questions, the reflections in the lyrics. I liked it. Not so convinced by the artwork, though.

Liquid smooth. Some real low stakes stuff from Marvin here. Takes care of his business at walking pace. At once admirable but just didn’t get me up outta my seat. Doesn’t hit the lofty heights of What’s Going On for my milky dollar. This album probably deserves a more thoughtful response. What can I say? 1001albums, you’ve created a monster.

It's 1978, and Marvin Gaye is BACK! After the thoughtful "What's Going On?" and the sexual "Let's Get It On", Gaye gives us the buttersweet "Here, My Dear". It's a divorce album. Funny side note, we're having a bit of a year for divorce albums. Country star Kacey Musgraves, R&B megahit Adele, uh....Kanye West went through a divorce. But he never went made Donda a divorce album. It doesn't matter, the point is that there's a wide array of emotions to explore on a divorce album. Definitively different from a mere breakup album because they're more "adult" for a lack of better words. There's legality involved! There's lawyers for this sort of thing! It's serious stuff. Marvin Gaye is doing the thing he does best on this album: reflection. He wants to explore every emotion, every moment, every facet of his divorce to delivery a truly multi-dimensional album. It's also a double album, so you're getting many dimensions whether you like it or not. It's a pretty mellow album. You get some funky danceable stuff in there, but a lot of it is musing on a topic for about 5 minutes at a time, which might overstay it's welcome a bit. When Marvin Gaye muses, he really stays musing for a while. Specifically the song "When Did You Stop Loving Me, When Did I Stop Loving You", already 6 minutes long, gets an instrumental reprise (that's not really all that instrumental) to close out side 3 and then pops up again as a reprise (though only 40 seconds long) to close the album. Man up a lot of stock into that song, huh? It's good. It's not his best, but it's certainly never bad. Of the double albums on this list though, I think this might be one of the weaker ones (but nothing will ever be worse than Space Ritual).

So, this wasn't what I expected. I had read about this great \"divorce settlement\" album, that was supposedly a lost masterpiece. Often, I find that wreaks of hipster-obscurantism (cf. the Beach Boys's Vegetables), where \"unrecognised masterpiece\" often equates to self-indulgent, un-edited piffle from a flailing artiste. So, my expectations for Marvin Gaye's double album commercial and (contemporaneously) critical flop, meditating on his divorce would be... flabby, self-indulgent and painful. But, surprisingly, while it has aspects of all those attributes, it does stand up. It is a largely mid-tempo funk/soul album, with touches of disco (unsurprisingly for the era). It is unhurried, with extended soloing (including some, ahem, marginally competent keyboard solos from Mr Gaye himself), but well recorded, with some great playing from his backing band (uncredited. Who ARE they? LA based Motown regulars?). It is certainly not a phoned-in contractual obligation album (Van Morrison could learn a lesson from this). I could see myself listening to this again. It's not \"What's going on?\", but a pretty solid album from a great artist. For once, the hipster revisionism has, actually, winnowed some grain from the chaff. (The one song that is really out of place was the single, \"A Funky Space Reincarnation\",, which is delightfully bonkers.)

Sense estar a l'alçada dels seus millors moments, 'Here, My Dear', un altre d'aquells discos de separació històrics, sobreviu millor el temps del que la seva fama presuposa. Soul suau, punyent, melangiós, taciturn en ocasions, suggestiu en unes altres. Molt llarg i s'ha d'estar en disposició adequada a la seva escolta, però si tot conflueix, resulta en una estona memorable

3.6 + Good but kind of a slog. It’s definitely ballsy for Marvin Gaye to have themed an album around his divorce - don’t know of other artists who’ve done that. The same sumptuous arrangements and buttery vocals are here. Songs like “Anger” give a window into his complex emotional state. Despite these strengths, this record is too far deep into his discography for my taste.

One of the worst album covers ever it has to be said. This definitely feels like Marvin was trying to stick it to the corporate guys and put out an album that contained absolutely zero potential chart hits. It was OK to listen to in the background.

Break up albums are usually a massive red flag for me. Only a 'being famous is weally weally hard' album is more of a warning. However, this album does something new with the form (I'd previously thought the Weeknd had started this trend, but was 35 years late!) It is icy, spooky soul music. Rather than comforting, it creeps you out. It's not perfect, without any real hooks, it is a disconcerting experience, and I got tired towards the end of it. But it was a new one on me, and one that tried something new, fairly effectively.

This is painful. Right from the title, which is what Gaye said to his wife when turning over the agreed upon 50% of the royalties of this album which was negotiated to end the divorce proceedings she brought against him. He'd fallen behind on child support and his spending habits and the long legal proceedings left him broke. Oh yeah, that wife was also the sister of Motown / TAMLA records executive Berry Gordy. Marvin Gaye is a tough listen, his vocal range is spot on. The smooth R&B sound he evolved into from his earlier Northern Soul fame lost some fans as well. Combining the hard R&B and the personal lyrics make this a heart rendingly good album. 3.5/5.

3/5 for me, this one. Leans pretty heavily into the breakup theme, gets a little wearing after an hour and a quarter. Irritated me that he had three versions of the same song, too. But, it's beautiful, soulful singing with a shitload of emotion. A pleasant listen that is gentle from a pure musical perspective, but harder work from an emotional perspective. I think we'll have better Marvin Gaye albums to come.

Have long known the story behind the album. Knew less about the post-script but it's nice that they eventually got along. It's a lot better than I had been led to believe, even as it leans slightly into being a more 1980s sounding soul album. I was under the assumption that it was a much-panned album but looks like has been re-appraised in recent years. Too long though, and the songs are generally too long as well. Would have been better as a single rather than a double.

I did not know of this album before. It is something. Sometimes you hear a work is "intensely personal" but this is more like "uncomfortably personal" or even "embarrassingly personal." It was hard to get over the shock at first. All I could hear was a Troy McClure-type voice announcing, "Including such divorce classics as, 'When Did You Stop Loving Me, When Did I Stop Loving You?' 'Anger' and 'You Can Leave, But It's Going to Cost You.'" Could this be real? Has the word "please" ever been rhymed with "attorney fees" in any other song? And let's throw in a sci-fi love song in the middle there for good measure. It's funny, though, that when I had it playing a second time and wasn't paying attention to the lyrics about violating marriage vows, weaponizing child custody, and such, I found that I liked a lot of the music and found it pretty engaging. I liked "When Did You Stop Loving Me" (the instrumental is nice), "Anger," "Is That Enough," "Time to Get it Together"...and well, "A Funky Space Reincarnation" is a pretty amazing piece of work all the way around. That's a pretty good chunk of the album where I really liked the music. I definitely understand why this was an album to hear, and I've gone through a few stages in my appreciation of it (or fascination with it). Whatever rating I end up giving it isn't going to feel quite right.

"Here, My Dear" is quite the left turn from Marvin Gaye's earlier work. It's framed around his divorce from first wife Anna Gordy (originally intended to be knocked out so she could claim royalties) and sees him laying his cards on the table... for 73 minutes. Right from the off (an opening line of "I guess I'll have to say this album is dedicated to you"), "Here, My Dear" is a deeply personal album for Gaye. Every song is either addressed to Gordy or shows Gaye looking inward to assess where things went wrong in his marriage. The lyrics, though, are oddly non-specific. They're vague enough to speak to just about anybody in a failing relationship, without detail, sharpness or much poeticism (who can't relate to the memories of "love after dark and picnics in parks"?) Conceptually and musically, though, this album is nothing short of compelling. Largely dismissed on release, it apparently gained a new wave of respect and praise in the wake of Gaye's tragic death in 1984. It's easy to see how people might flock to "Here, My Dear" as a misunderstood masterpiece: it's certainly more ambitious in scope than Gaye's other releases. At times, the music calls back to Gaye's classic work: "Here, My Dear" is a tender doo-wop ballad, "Falling in Love Again" regains the optimism of "Let's Get It On". At others it draws from funk and disco breaking out at the time, with the strutting urgency of "Anger" and the bloated but fun "A Funky Space Reincarnation". At others it sounds like a touchstone for the nu-soul movement of the 90s (Maxwell and D'Angelo surely pulled a lot of tricks from this book). "Everybody Needs Love" is one of my highlights: a lovely spiritual take on love which emerges as the most positive song on the record despite the bitterness eating away at its core. If "Here, My Dear" doesn't hit straight away, it's down to the sheer volume of material: great as it is, three versions of "When Did You Stop Loving Me, When Did I Stop Loving You" is surely not necessary. Most tracks are over five minutes and many don't need to be so long. As self-critical as Gaye is here, it's also a shame that Gordy's version of events will never be enshrined like this. A quick internet search is enough to reveal Gaye's adulterous and abusive tendencies, somewhat undermining the peaceful messages espoused in this record. I might not have been particularly engaged by this album at first, but even with the above reservations taken into account, many of these songs have the grace and craft to transcend the ugly and bitter circumstances they arose from.

Insgesamt lässt mich das Album sowieso überaus schlaff zurück. mMn zu viele Tracks die sich zT auch noch wiederholen. Wie beim Figgn gilt: wiederhole nur was Spaß macht.

I like to read about an album and its history especially if I'm hearing it for the first time; for this one specifically I wanted to understand *why* it's considered a top 1001 album because to me ... it's dull. I love a good Marvin Gaye song and definitely am a fan of a lot of 70s soul music, but this seems an hour-long compilation of ...meh. Mid-tempo songs that sort of blend with one another - lukewarm vocals without a ton of passion (oddly, considering the topic)... there's absolutely nothing terrible here but it feels more like something I'd hear playing in the background of a slow-moving old street drama starring a young Gene Hackman. Additionally, the "reason" this is now a highly-regarded album is in fact largely *because of* the awkwardness of the lyrics and subject matter. Essentially the album is a document about MG's divorce, starting from the weird and not-convincing opening track of "Here My Dear" where he is almost literally giving us the verbal version of a final "I'm sorry this happened to us" letter. Even as someone who often ignores lyrics, I can't help but notice these and not in a good way. One highlight I will note is "Anger" which would probably stand out more on a more varied album. "Is That Enough" shows great promise with a slow funky groove but unfortunately just drags on a bit too long. Hard pass on this one, I'll give it a disappointed 2 and move to other/better Marvin.

First thought - that is a terrible cover! The ego he must have had at this point! This is apparently a bitter divorce album. It's basically a concept album on the subject. But nothing here is particularly deep - just feels like a bitter, very self involved man ranting. It's not a good look and it seems like he doesn't realize it - which is maybe even worse (again, that cover...). There are a few decent funky tracks (A Funky Space Reincarnation for example) but this is largely pretty cringe-worthy and not worth the time.

I think my biggest qualm with this album is the production - Gaye’s vocals are great as always and the melodic instrumentation is layered wonderfully behind a small ocean of filters, but there’s not enough umph in the rhythm section to grab onto. I get this is an R&B album, but without any kind of strong rhythmic presence these tracks just flop around like a blob fish without much sense of direction (which doesn’t help the fact that some of the melodies sound similar to one another)

If you are a millennial like me, you either 1.) know that Marvin Gaye's music is synonymous with sexy times, or 2.) know someone who was conceived to said music. This album, 'Here, My Dear', does little to break the stereotype. From start to finish, the album features gentle soul/funk to make love to. Not fuck. Not chains-and-whips and edible undies type sex. No. We're talking sweet, sweet slow missionary style boom chikka wow wows. The instrumentations, from the gentle snare-and-high-hat drums to the gentle percussive guitars, lays the groundwork for Mr Gaye's reproduction-encouraging vocal stylings. Punctuated by the occasional sax lines, the music tends to be a bit one-note (says the guy who would listen to a Ramones album end to end). Overall, this album was not one I enjoyed. Not to say that it is bad. Maybe one day, I will meet a nice lady at my retirement home on Mars, and we will make out to the timeless sexy sounds of Marvin Gaye. But for now, I will just leave the record here, my dear.
