Maxwell – I’m You: You Are Me And We Are You (Pt Me & You) (Columbia)

Maxwell made quite a sensation back in the second half of the nineties, embodying what would be termed Neo-Soul (a response to the Brit-Soul) along with luminaries such as D’Angelo, Erykah Badu and Raphael Saadiq.
As a definitive fan of the artist, I gotta say I didn’t quite understand the mixed reviews which have followed the release of ‘Embrya’, his second album, by the beginning of 1998, not to mention the bad ones from the ones who talked about some “indulgent sound”, as I would tend to think it was exactly the contrary, with Maxwell makin’ proof of a definitive exploring will.
This could be the reason though why Columbia passed on releasing this jewel as a single which, to me, stands as a(nother) non sense judging by its emotional content and musicality, enhanced by its Latin flavors.
