"Unfortunately Maurice White only recorded this lone solo album in 1985 during Earth,Wind & Fire's hiatus.His work with that band is superlative of course but 'Maurice White' is his own beast entirely.The first two cuts "Switch On Your Radio" and "Jamboree" are very happy and ethereal 80's funk-all handclaps and polyphonic synth orchestration,you know.But in both cases Maurice's lyrics are about joy and well being."Believe In Magic" and "Invitation" touch on similar territory while White spends the rest of this album as sort of a sepia Peter Gabriel,exploring minimal,African inflected soundscapes that his former band were more wary of,themselfs in search of more of a funky sound.One of the more individual of the EWF solo offerings 'Maurice White' is also the story of a promising solo career that has,and sadly will always remain somewhat unfullfilled."
Maurice...incredible...period...end of story.

"Oh, Maurice! When one hears such notes what can one say? This album is simply orgasmic in its quality. The orchesration on here is moving. It awakens the soul brother that sleeps within. I may be a bit bold in saying this, but what Maurice has got here is something that is far better than ANYTHING EVER RECORDED (that includes The Beatles, too...yeah, I said it). Fin."

"first&formost Maurice White is one of those Cats that I think the World of.a True Genius&what He did with Earth,Wind&Fire still blows my mind.but His Solo Album was pretty lightweight overall to me."I Need You" was cool.His re-make of Ben E.King's "Stand by Me" sounded better in 85 than now to me.this Album just was kinda there.I wonder how come He didn't put out more Solo Albums? but then again His stuff with EWF,Ramsey lewis&the first Urban Knights along with His Other writing&Production under-takens He has Made up for it.but this Album didn't move me much."
