Let's Get It On is a landmark soul album by Marvin Gaye, released on August 29, 1973. Described as a sexually and romantically charged album that remains a record unparalleled in its sheer sensuality and carnal energy, Let's Get It On was Gaye's second venture into funk music. The album is Gaye's most successful, and helped to push his multi-tracking vocals to the forefront.
"I mumble things into the microphone," Gaye said. "I don't even know what I'm saying, and I don't even try to figure it out. If I try, it doesn't work. If I relax, those mumbles will finally turn into words. It's a slow, evolving process, something like the way a flower grows." On this album, those words turn into meditations on the gap between sex and love and how to reconcile them an adult version of the Motown tunes Gaye had built his career on. Songs such as "Just to Keep You Satisfied" and "You Sure Love to Ball" are some of the most gorgeous music of Gaye's career, resplendent with sweet strings and his clear-throated, non-mumbled crooning." - www.rollingstone.com
