I didn't start paying much attention to him until like a couple years ago. For some reason he just didn't interest me at the time. Just didn't think he matched up much to R.Kelly or Maxwell. Speaking of Maxwell, Maxwell's Urban Hang Suite is a classic. One of the best albums of the 90's.
^Also on the Love Jones soundtrack. Played during the sex/love scene between Darius and Nina.
^One of my favorite R&B songs of all time.
Maxwell's amazing, no doubt. His last album was supposed to be the start of a trilogy, can't wait for the next one to drop. What did you think about Embrya? It's the "black sheep" out of his albums, but it's one of my faves. The slower, more ambient style works so well with his voice.
