Maxwell's debut offers up a sophisticated and stylized take on late-'60s and early-'70 soul. Sam CookeMarvin GayeAl Green, and the like are subtly referenced over the course of these 11 tracks of wide-screen soul. Mixing sensual funk with ballad sincerity, Maxwell coolly sings through highlights like "Welcome," "...Til the Cops Come Knockin'," and "Ascension (Don't Ever Wonder)." The atmospheric, cool-breeze soundscape comes courtesy of Maxwell and Sade cohort Stuart Mathewman. More expansive and airy sounding than the deep groove and gospel sides by fellow retro-soulster D'AngeloUrban Hang Suite is destined to become a classic contemporary R&B disc.
