Maxwell was only 23 when his debut was released in 1996, and it’s hard to overestimate the courage and maturity it took to create an album like Urban Hang Suite at that time
Urban Hang Suite also marked the debut of Maxwell’s tenor on a recording. His vocalizing-Brooklyn Baptist church-inspired but Quiet Storm smooth-remains a timbral wonder. On falsetto-driven torch tunes like Lonely’s the Only Company (I&II), his luscious voice wafts out of the speakers, floating on whispery utterances and feline coos that can cause shudders like the unexpected stroke of a hand down the spine. On Urban Hang Suite, Maxwell’s island roots might show up in the album’s sinewy bass grooves, the long instrumental rhythmic stretches, and the vaguely Latin/calypso horn arrangements.
Maxwell's role in writing and producing the album exhibited a level of artistic control by an R&B artist that was uncommon in the recording industry at the time. On his emergence with Maxwell's Urban Hang Suite, writer Carol Brennan cited him, along with the Fugees, D'Angelo and Tony Rich, as neo soul musicians that "exhibited the identifying characteristics. of this new breed of R&B artists: lyrics that give voice to intense personal expression, creative control over the music, and a unexpectedly successful debut.

The album exemplifies Maxwell’s soulful and unique voice. I remember when I went into the music store a while back, the manager in the store recommended that I should try it, so I decided to give it a try. I decided to give it a try because I am a huge fan of soul and R&B music. When I first played the whole album, there was no song that I did not like. Every song was. magical and so unique.
