    I have been a Maxwell fan since I first saw his video and heard his music for Ascension (Don't Ever Wonder). His first two albums are not only my favorites of his, but two of my all time favorites. I waited so long for the first part of the BLACKsummer'snight and was not disappointed. Yes, Maxwell doesn't focus on a consistent vibe through a whole album like his early work but what he continues from the last album is focused songwriting. Every song shows that love, time, and craftsmanship went into them. There are songs to dance to, cry to, think to, and of course, make love to. If you are already a fan, what are you waiting for. If you are just discovering Maxwell, then you are in for a great journey of discovery.

    I'm a big Maxwell fan. I've been there from moment one. I have to be 100% honest, it's not his best yet and it's not his worse either. There are only 6 out of 11 songs I can say are okay. My most favorite of those is Lake By the Ocean. All I can say is blackSummer'snight isn't as good as it predecessor Blacksummer'snight. Maybe watching him performing some of these songs will nudge me into enjoying the album a bit more.

    Better than previous

    I've waited patiently for this 2nd installment of the Black Summer's Night CD trilogy. I found the first installment to be fair and this current second one to be better, but not as pleasing as Maxwell's first two albums. I appreciate his Neo-Soul style, but I feel the musical arrangement on this album has room for improvement.

    I was truly expecting a much harder comeback from Maxi like he did before this. I was a little disappointed, the album is pretty good. But unlike the last it did not stay in rotation for weeks or months. Overall pretty good, but very few songs that would go on my favorites list. I believe most fans would enjoy though.

    I love Maxwell as an artist, so its always a win-win with his music. It was worth the wait, however I absolutely loved the 1st release to this trilogy. I was not disappointed that I had to wait for what seemed forever for this release. It was worth every cent. Keep them coming Maxwell!! I'm a true fan of his music.

    Disappointing

    This is far from Maxwell's usually great work. It sounds like he is trying to do something new or completely different from being himself. Not impressed at all. Really disappointed in this album because I have heard and seen what he can do. And this is far from the true Maxwell.

    This cd is another classic maxwell disc. My wife and i recenty went to the Maxwell concert and nothing can compare to that but maxwell has been around so many years and is an artist with his own sound, grown and sexy!!! This is a cd we can listen to anytime.

    If you are a Old School MAXWELL fan this album may not be for you, after a 5 yr absence he finally released Vol 2 of his Trilogy but with New Artist like The Weeknd and Migal on the Scene they have taken some of MAXWELL fan base to the next level with them
