 The Temptations: Psychedelic Soul - PopMatters Music Review
The group's masterpiece of this era, Psychedelic Shack (covered by no less than six songs here, including a previously unreleased extended version of the title cut), eschewed the hit-machine format of their previous albums in favor of a more cohesive statement made up of equal parts Harlem discontent and Haight-Ashbury idealism.
Although Psychedelic Shack may have been the group's crowning achievement in terms of full-length albums, the rest of this compilation shows that the Temptations still had plenty of ideas up their silk paisley sleeves.
Because as far as retrospective sets go, Psychedelic Soul is about as good as they get -- the packaging includes detailed track information, liner notes and photos, virtually no filler, and the sequencing is chronological and judiciously separated between the two discs.

Things were changing on the musical landscape in the late 1960s, and the Temptations--stalwarts of Motown's golden age of matching suits, choreographed moves, and songs about innocent romance--were changing too.

Producer/songwriter Norman Whitfield helped evolve the group's music, and this set is a showcase for his achievements, as well as for the group's stellar performances.
