"Perhaps the truest melding of social commentary and swooning musicality ever achieved: a triumph of substance and soul."
- Entertainment Weekly

"The masterpiece that followed Gaye's awakening revolutionized black music. From its rich, string-suffused grooves to its boundless sense of possibility, What's Going On is the Sgt. Pepper of soul."
- Rolling Stone

"Marvellous Marvin Gaye is the smoothest and his What's Going On smash slipped Gaye back into hit stream, bound to overflow with that persuasive Gaye groove ... a cross between Curtis Mayfield and that old Motown spell ... outdoes anything Gaye's ever done ... Marvin's on top again."
- Billboard

One of the most highly-acclaimed albums of all time, Marvin Gaye's landmark What's Going On is a concept album about a Viet Nam veteran disillusioned with the social injustice he encounters upon returning to the US after the war. In 1985, writers for the British music magazine NME named it the best album of all time; Rolling Stone placed it at number six on its list of the 500 greatest albums of all time, while many other critics and publications have given it similar awards. This re-release includes three bonus tracks.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
