Maxwell's 2X platinum iconic debut

20th Anniversary Limited Edition

150-gram metalic gold vinyl

Includes 8-page booklet with rare photos

The debut album, now a limited vinyl anniversary edition, from the iconic neo soul artist. "Handsome in his designer clothes and angelic, nappy dreads, Maxwell styles himself a modern-day urban love prophet in the tradition of Marvin Gaye. Here 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.

"Initially, there's a lot to like about Maxwell: On his openers, 'Urban Theme' and 'Welcome,' the early '80s full-band R&B and jazz pop grooves are reminiscent of Maze's brightest days and Steely Dan's coolest nights." —

"Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye, Al 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." — AllMusic
