The term "boudoir soul" had taken on negative connotations for many until Maxwell came along in 1996. Blending the sumptuous musical tradition of Barry White with elements of mid-'70s Marvin and mid-'80s Sade, the Brooklyn native created a distinctly artful suite about a night of magnificent seduction. Wah-wah pedals and Fender Rhodes piano accent a recording that is heavy on mood and on musical content, a rarity in contemporary R&B. But mostly Maxwell separates himself from the dime-a-dozen rakes with his belief in romance: To this love-rocker, sex is not a conquest but a mutual submission to a greater erotic prerogative. And so, rather than using songs like "Ascension (Don't Ever Wonder)" and "Welcome" to boast about touching you there, Maxwell asks -- very, very sweetly.
