Handsome in his designer clothes and angelic, nappy dreads, Maxwell styles himself a modern-day urban love prophet in the tradition of Marvin Gaye. He concocts a conceptual music suite that purports to tell a fully rounded tale of meaningful love set in the tough but misunderstood inner city. What he delivers, however, contains only the faintest hints of what he promises. Instead we get a whole lot of the same tired R&B elevator slush and lyrics like "Gonna take you in the room suga'/ Lock you up and love for days." Maxwell's Urban Hang Suite is significant only in that it recasts the same old same old as something monumental, and nearly pulls it off.
Initially, there's a lot to like about Maxwell: On his openers, "Urban Theme" and "Welcome", the early 1980s full-band R&B and jazz pop grooves are reminiscent of Maze's brightest days and Steely Dan's coolest nights. But soon even Maxwell's passionate voice gets lost in a flat mix that turns every song into faceless background music. While R&B is at no loss for suave and sexy personalities to take the stage, a dearth of new ideas keeps the genre for the most part floundering and visionless. In the end, Maxwell's urban hang suite is just another empty room. --Roni SarigSee all Product Description

GET THIS ALBUM!!
If your a lover of quality R&B then this should be in your collection. If its not, then your not as cool as you think you are!!
Maxwell, brings an album which is totally fresh and full of great tracks.
Vocally he is top notch and the music will satisfy all.
The Urban Theme
Basically its an intro. But funky and sets the mood. You've opened the doors to Maxwell's Urban Hang Suite here.
So your into the Hang Suite now, and Maxwell is welcoming you. This is the first taste of his voice. Its a very cool track that is great to kick back with a drink in your hand and listen too.
Now we really get into it. This track is out of this world. You might know this one, it was a single. Catchy chorus but oh so cool. Sexy sexy track.
Ascension (Don't Ever Wonder)
This just beats Sumthin Sumthin for the title of the albums best track. One of my favourite songs of all time. Once again its cool and catchy, but its a beautifuly written song. With Maxwell's voice oozing soul, this track is without a doubt fantastic.
This track is bassy and once again really chilled. Maxwell is making a move this woman and telling her to dance with him. Its another sexy track. Not to be missed.
Til' The Cops Come Knocking
This is the first ballad on the album. If you want to impress a lady fellas, make them dinner, bottle of wine, with this track playing in the back ground. A winner for sure.
Whenever Wherever Whatever
A sentence most people like to hear. Another classy ballad. Not a great as Til the cops... but still a beautiful track.Read more ›
music, at its best!
1. Urban Theme:-
Nice instrumental introduction with some really cool sax and bass guitar slapping. Mellow sound for jazz/soul enthusiasts.
Maxwells welcome to his Urban Hang Suite - sets the scene for the rest of the album - mellow, loving - more funky bass slapping.
3. Sumthin, Sumthin:-
Crank it up and chill, (dare you not to sing along!) Maxwell is definately one of the coolest singers around.
Slight change of pace - very smooth, silky, sexy - illiteration, other "S" words apply. Maxwell treats us to the full range of his voice in this song. Not my favourite, but still good.
5. Dance Wit Me:-
Change in tempo, pulsing bass to get your pulse racing - mesmerising!
6. Cops come knocking:-
Probably my favourite track on the album. Slower beat with Maxwell's amazing vocals, very sensual - don't forget to breathe!!
7. Whenever Whenever:-
Cools things down in this ballad. Beautiful story sung in his liquid gold voice. You can hear every word clearly - very simple - very pure - very Maxwell, mainly guitar and vocals.
8. Lonely is the only Company:-
Sad soulful tune of loneliness after a breakup. One we can all relate to, sung with expression that only Maxwell can do justice to. Haunting beautiful sax playing.Read more ›
