Vocals

Reviews

MusicOMH described the song as "not only a welcome return for the band but a hark back to their glory days, circa Blue Lines and Protection; it is an aching, haunting love song ... that beautifully evokes the pain and longing of failed romance. ... Callier's gloriously emotive vocal that lifts this track far above and beyond average. He succeeds in being both fragile and powerful in a way that previous Massive Attack vocalists Shara Nelson and Tracey Thorn also achieved."[1]

ContractMusic said that "Live With Me" "has a certain dark and sexy groove going on. Partly it's the trade-mark lush, sensual synthetic bass sounds that do it, but mostly it's the authentic soul vocals of Terry Callier that lift this single out of ordinariness and up into the realms of unforgettable musical moments."[2]

Virgin Media described the song as follows: "Some extremely evocative and rich vocals come courtesy of soul legend Terry Callier, who builds 'Live With Me' to a mesmerising climax against a backdrop of lush, expansive strings and a rolling, hypnotic bassline. It's clear the band have lost none of their distinctive edge..."[3]
