** CONTRIBUTE A REVIEW **

Where's Maxi been? Not songwriting or perfecting covers if we judge by this effort. It's soul by numbers with Elisha La Verne adding little to the fraction of a song that's there (apparently a Roberta Flack/Donny Hathaway original.) Maxi's fine voice will always be stamped over any of his recordings, it saves the verse but the lack of chorus collapses any kind of lift that was happening. Elisha just complements the general lazyness of the track.

"'Cause you. You and I back together again - we got the world"

It's funny they don't sound particularly celebratory about it. Obligatory rap version makes no difference and the K Warren remix though throwing in every trick in the book never gets it beyond demo stage. It should have stayed that way. In a word, lame.
