NO WONDER Stevie doesn't sound like himself
 

Few artists will ever rival Stevie Wonder's scary-great crop of groundbreaking 1970s works. Unfortunately, his first album in 10 years, A Time to Love, feels like Stevie Wonder: The Musical, a tedious revue of diluted funk knockoffs. Wonder once brought soul a caffeinated jolt of fearlessness and moral authority, but these toothless, '80s-embalmed tracks — like the unfortunately titled ''Passionate Raindrops'' — are the aural equivalent of Sleepytime tea. Grade: C
