Innervisions is my choice. If I may add an most honorable mention of a personal favorite, "Hotter than July"

All right, Jenn.  To me, Talking Book is just a tiny sliver below the other two but it deserves to be in the discussion.

No question, Overjoyed is a great song.  While I like In Square Circle, that album certainly has it's flaws (Spiritual Walkers, Land of La-La, It's Wrong) that disqualify it from this illustrious company.  The bar is that high.

Music of My Mind is yet another great album.  To me, not yet on the same level as the next three.  That said, sometimes Superwoman is my favorite Stevie record.  Still, has anybody ever had a run as brilliant as this?  Between 1972 and 1976:
Music of My Mind
Talking Book
Innervisions
Fulfillingness' First Finale
Songs in the Key of Life

I can't think of no one off the top of the dome that has a run of hit records like the "musical geniius" SW.
