Consumer Guide Album

The Supremes: Floy Joy [Motown, 1972]
For the most part this miracle of homogeneity bounces along in the background, occasionally brightening the room with a riff or a harmony or a phrase or a touch of electricity that betokens writer-producer Smokey Robinson expressing himself. "Your Wonderful Sweet Sweet Love" and "Floy Joy" and "Automatically Sunshine" aren't prime Smokey. But they're choice, meriting my most generous Muzak rating. B+
