What's Going On is not only Marvin Gaye's masterpiece, it's the most important and passionate record to come out of soul music, delivered by one of its finest voices, a man finally free to speak his mind and so move from R&B sex symbol to true recording artist.

What’s Going On is Marvin Gaye’s eleventh studio album, released on May 21, 1971, by the Motown Records label Tamla. The album is a concept album, with a circular structure (the last song is a reprise of the introduction’s theme). Additionally, each song flows into the next one. The storyline is told from the point of view of a veteran returning home from Vietnam to find a country full of injustice, violence and oppression. Sonically, the album features soulful and passionate vocals, pulling influences from gospel and jazz. Although it spawned three hits, this was Motown’s first true album
There’s no doubt that What’s Going On will be listened to by many generations to come. We’ll celebrate its 50th anniversary, analysing its seemingly timeless portraits of urban struggle and socio-economic desperation. We’ll champion its 60th birthday, with its message about the destruction of our environment still ringing true. In 100 years we’ll look back on the record as an album that broke down musical barriers and united music fans around the world
WHAT'S GOING ON is the album Marvin had wanted to make for a very long time but was held back from making due the strictness of Motown's founder and president, Berry Gordy. Marvin, who went through many trauma's as a child and young adult with an alcoholic & abusive father as well as a marriage that was beginning to fall apart, had a lot of emotions bottled up inside. He truly needed an outlet and wasn't being given the freedom to do so musically which is one of the reasons I believe he turned so heavily to drugs early on. It was through a series of letters he received.

What’s Happening Brother picks up from What’s Going On, strengthening its impact by making its situation more specific: a brother returning from Vietnam and trying to get his bearings on the block again, shifting between questions about old hang-outs and fears that there’s no work anywhere: Say man, I just don’t understand/What’s going on across this. Mercy, Mercy Me is one of the most bearable ecology songs, a genre that doesn’t seem to inspire especially subtle or intelligent lyrics; Gaye’s are inoffensive and the song itself is lovely. Considerably changed from the version that had backed the 45 of What’s Going On, God Is Love still has a strange attraction. It begins, Don’t go and talk about my father/God is my friend, and kinda grows on you. Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler) ends the album and is one of its finest cuts.
