This is undoubtedly the sickest album by Gaye. Altough "Let's Get it On" and "Midnight love" are brilliant works, this is above all of them in my opinion. I can't just believe how underrated this piece of gold is. I mean, everybody knows "Sexual healing" and "What's going on" is also very known, but man - the tracks inside this album like "I want you", "Come live with me" and "After dance" are just pure genius.

I would actually give this album four-and-a-half stars. Another succulent suite from Marvin Gaye, I WANT YOU features some of his smoothest production work and some very moving vocals. Considering the obvious emphasis on romanticism and sex, it would be easy to view I WANT YOU as a rewrite of LET'S GET IT ON. While both albums are sensual and multilayered, the two discs actually have a completely different feel. LET'S GET IT ON was a sheer erotic jolt, while I WANT YOU is more of a psychological probing of the complications of love and sex.

The big hit is the majestic title song (#15 Pop, #1 R&B) and it perfectly encapsulates the theme and mood of the entire album.

Given the sensual nature of the material, it's surprising that I WANT YOU is such a leisured and melancholy album.

In spite of some suggestive lyrics, "Come Live With Me Angel" and "Since I Had You" are filled more with anguish than lust. The closing "After The Dance" is the LP`s most reflective number,

...though Marvin even performs the songs he didn't write ("All The Way Around," the title song) with an uncommon emotional intensity.

As we had come to expect from Marvin, the album's tracks are expertly sequenced and form a lovely progression to the LP`s close, even if reprising the title song three times is a bit redundant.

Another huge Top Ten success on the Hot 200, I WANT YOU may not be able to top WHAT'S GOING ON or LET'S GET IT ON (but what could?), but it is a highly impressive recording in it's own right.

The younger entertainers can sample all they want (not a bad thing), but Marvin was a musical genius. He was doing his thang during this live performance! Yeah, "I want you, and I want you to want me just like I want you
