Eight years on and the very talented Maxwell is back. He has a new look and a slightly new sound and this initially made me nervous because in my view if something is working then don't tamper with it. But I guess with maturity comes evolution and the result is a fairly short album but one that grows each time you play it. As you would expect from a Maxwell CD, the tracks are dreamy, smooth and soulful and I would be hard pressed to choose a favourite. I also think its genius to end the album with a funky instrumental, which should feel out of place but works very well. I'm pleased this is the first of a trilogy because I very much look forward to parts 2 and 3. A welcome return!
