THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH STARS FOR THIS STAR
LAURIE | Manhattan, NY USA | 08/27/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This young soulful man brings back the true spirit of love, soul, spirituality, and what kinds of passions are inspired by life, love and its lessons. I recommend everything that this man has come out withthus far. He has a flare that no other of this day so far as touched. There are artists out there now, that beginning to feel the SOUL from within. And think that Maxwell has paved a way for those so that they wont have to be afraid of being unique and yet learn from the pioneers of soul."
Maxwell has the ability to move you.

"I have every CD that Maxwell has released. He can groove with the best. He has the ability to soothe you or light you up!!!.I need a Maxwell fix every day.I have attended two of his concerts and I was more than pleasantly surprised that he improved on the sound of his CD. The boy is BAD. He is a showman and he leaves you with no regrets. But, leaves you wanting more.Listen, relax and groove. He is all THAT!!!"

The Groove | Boston, MA | 11/11/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"It's a bold, and often potentially misguided, step to release a live disc with only one album in your catalogue, but Maxwell pulls it off with his "Unplugged" set. Stripped of all the cliches associated with live discs, "Unplugged" is soulful, down-to-earth, and undeniably funky. This 7 track CD features a handful of album tracks and a Kate Bush cover, leading right up to the rousing finale ("Gotta Get: Closer") which segues into an uplifting gospel number that effectively works the crowd. His live recording of "Whenever, Wherever, Whatever" is the crowning moment, as his molasses-smooth voice soars during this winning love jam. If I have a flaw to pick with "Unplugged," it has to be its brevity. At 34 minutes, it doesn't offer a dish filling enough to completely satisfy, and just as you're ready to sink your teeth into Maxwell's groove, the disc is over. But for what the EP is, it succeeds in its goal and is just an essential record as any of his studio albums."
