1981's In Our Lifetime served as Marvin Gaye's final album for Motown before leaving for Columbia Records where he cut his last ever record Midnight Love (1982). After scrapping the bedroom funk album Love Man, Marvin changed gears with the more contemplative In Our Lifetime centered around his internal struggles, our brief time on this earth and of course love. Passionate and personal, the criminally underrated In Our Lifetime features a little bit of everything you want from Marvin Gaye and latter day gems like "Praise," "Life Is For Learning" and "Heavy Love Affair" stand as consummate bookends to his Motown supremacy. Continuing with its vinyl reissue campaign, UMe will be reissuing this classic on 180 gram vinyl.
