It seems that every year Brandy voice gets worse and worse. Her voice just doesn't live up to the material on this album.

I've always enjoyed Brandys music. The Boy is Mine, Have I Ever, What About Us?, and Full Moon were all favorite songs of mine of the past 5 years. Therefore, I was excited to get Brandys latest cd Afrodisiac. For the first time in Brandys career, I am very disappointed. With the exception of maybe one or two songs there is nothing memorable here. There is to much production going on which drowns Brandy out. Her voice has never been her strongest suit, but it's never bothered me til now. It's quiet and breathy, and doesnt work for the overproduced tracks. First single "Talk About Our Love" is probably the best track on here, and I suggest buying the cd single instead of the whole album. Finally, the last song on the album is called "Should I Go" and it samples the music from Coldplays "Clocks." It's a beautifully crafted song, and should be her next single if she's smart.

Uncreative, bland, cliched left to right, frustratingly repetitive, lame, and boring. I'm glad Brandy has found herself and has grown up and all, but this album is by far her worst and least appealing. If you're like me, a CD is an immediate hit to your ear, or it grows on you. This CD did neither. Her current singles are by no means hits. I can't believe T.I. agreed to do such a lame track with her. All and all, I listened to three songs in their entirety. I definitely regret buying this album.

Brandy...this was your worst album. You shouldve stuck to your old formula. Your voice and Timb's dry attempt to create emotion didnt work out. Get back with Rodney. And just so you know I brought your cd and then sold it for half price, just to get rid of it. And to make matters worse my friend said she wanted her money back. TSK TSK

And the rest of the "Not yet grown, but not quite a child star anymore" music acts (e.g. Usher, Monica, Ashanti, Mya, Beyonce etc.) and that is...
They are cute little filler acts who mainly just take up space in AN ALREADY CROWDED music industry. They're nobody to be taken seriously. Yeah, she and Usher particularly have been around for 10 yrs., but in that decade, I haven't seen any musical growth or maturity from them. I personally don't care how many records Usher sales either, as I am not impressed by that. And, to me, Brandy will continue to be the "'I Wanna Be Down' w/ whatcha goin' thru" girl unless she can prove that she has musical diversity, and can
experiment w/ her sound, and the fact that she's trying to be a dancer like,...
none other than the woman who started the whole hot choreography routine in her music is comical. It's similar to when Mary J. started to do lame dance moves. Anyway, all the hype about this album is similar to when "Full Moon" was released being that the die-hards were loving it, but after about a yr., they realized that it was filler, and Brandy'll be regretting that this album was made, and ready to make another one, as in the case of "Full Moon".
And last, but not least...
Immature comparisons have got to stop. If you're gonna compare Brandy's "cute little girl next door sound" then, do it where it's fitting (mainly w/ her adversaries mentioned above) NOT VETERAN R&B artists who've been in the game just as long as Brandy's been in existence. That's complete nonsense.

I just had a feeling that this cd was going to suck from the very 1st mediocre single "Talk about our love" f/Kanye West. Full Moon surprisingly I would have to say is definately better than this. She let Timberland produce the majority of the album and it has the same type flow that Aaliyah had and we all know that no one will replace Detroit's Angel so just stop it and be yourself. I love Brandy but this cd is just pure garbage, no wonder it came in at the #3 spot with only 131,000 copies sold in the 1st week to Full Moon's #2 debut at 155,000 copies sold in its 1st week release, Things that make you go HMM. Stick to her previous releases,People!
BUY "NINA SKY" OR CHRISTINA MILIAN'S "IT'S ABOUT TIME" and burn this awful showcase of music!!!
~DISAPPOINTED FAN~

This is a whatever album... the only reason i am posting this review is to say that there is a riff that has been copied off of IRON MAIDEN's 'The CLansman' in the song I TRIED... being a die hard Maiden fan.. i wasnt happy to see this at all.. Horrible attempt at music .. she doesnt even have a voice to sing with.. would give it 0 stars if i could..

How can you diss Alicia Keys like that? She is the number one best selling RnB artist out there. Come on guys, stop listening to crap. Brandy isn't all that. "You don't know my name" was a huge hit by Alicia Keys, and you can't deny that. Alicia Keys will top Brandy always. Thank god for Alicia.

brandy sounds like she is a dying cat, trying to sound like sade, and it all goes wrong. when brandy first came on the scene with baby and best friend and always on my mind, her voice mirrored whitney. tho she could not hit those soaring notes she could take a tune and really make it sound whitney insired.
now it seems that sound no longer works for brandy and she sounds sick. her lungs seem like they no longer work. this dragging grudge makes it seem like she has something lodged in her throat. brandy first started this sound on a song called open, then followed up with it on full moon now she continues with this god awful sound on the new album.
her voice sounds shot and i really hate it.... BRANDY WE HATE IT! listening to her older music, one can only wonder WHAT HAPPENED BRANDY? the o so cute image and sound brandy had are gone and replaced with a sound i can only describe as the sound of death. please take this sound and put it away..it works for sade but it does not work for brandy. i don't care for the monotone dry barely there singing eather. please stop this crap...PLEASE.
being at one time a HUGE brandy fan i have to say i am upset things have turned out like this. i won;t be buying this garbage and anything the sounds like this won;t be bought from me eather. let sade have her own style!
