4.0 out of 5 stars Big, Bad Grooves March 8, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This album really strikes me as a major R&B achievement. Andrew Levy is a minimalist master on the bass, constructing grooves so spacious you can sit in them. N'Dea's vocals are crisp, clear and true. The title track shines through with a nice horn arrangement and a sweet lilt. The production itself is top notch...dry yet exciting and crisp. I whip this album out every few months or so and listen to it on a long drive. It's a very special effort from an amazingly tight band.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a PERFECT album! December 17, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I have loved this album from the very first moment it graced my ears. N'Dea Davenport's vocal depth is superbly showcased on this disc. I highly suggest this album to anyone who has an open ear for good music. The band brings out the magic in N'Dea's voice and she in turn brings out the magic in the band. It's been 8 years since the initial release of this album and it brought me through a very tough time in my life and continues to bring joy and hope to this very day.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Nice June 25, 1999

This comment is to Thad, below. If you liked Dream on Dreamer but not the whole album, check out their debut album and I don't think you'll be disappointed. It's catchier than the more relaxing Brother Sister .

Format:Audio CD
It was pleasing to see the experience and confidence of the previous New York shows and gigs,leading to the excellent*Heavy Rhyme Experience Vol 1*.The good vibes were now translated into the second outing on the Delicious Vinyl label,and such a funky and commerically accessible translation it was and remains!!!!
*Brother Sister*,is a consistent and funky product,with N'Dea Davenport in fine form,interpreting that 70s based funk of Kincaid,Levy and Bartholomew.The memory of Acid Jazz is still strong on the agenda,but a softer vocal appeal,with some consideration for the non clubbing,non dancing *punter*,is ushered in.
I personally feel the instrumental or predominantly instrumental tracks like *Snake Hips*, stand strong,but one could not argue with the vocals of Ms Davenport,on *the Title track,*Brother Sister*,*Dream On Dreamer*,*The World Keeps Spinning*,*Daybreak* and *Forever*.The American release,unfortunately does not seem to have the version of *Midnight At the Oasis*,which was chart successful,and depending upon your view has either enhanced the BNHs reputation to cover more commerically accessible material,or has become a *millstone*around their necks,which has limited the appreciation of their other work,which had originally attracted me to the group.Ms Davenport delivers vocals that liven the 70s standard and the offering fits beautifully into this well produced and grooving set.It is hard not to want to get up and dance to this CD!!
This outing shows the experience that had come from being a predominantly live outfit.They had built a strong and loyal following from their dynamic presence on stage. With familiarity that comes from the bonds between the members,they clearly matured into a niche funk and soul band with a dynamite lead vocalist.

4.0 out of 5 stars You'll Have a Good Time August 14, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Undoubtedly, "Dream on Dreamer" was released as the first single off of this CD because it was co-written by then hot producer Dallas Austin. To this day it remains the closest thing that the Brand New Heavies have had to a major pop hit (where it unfortunately stalled at #51). It did however have a much better run on the R&B charts, where it hit the Top 20. Amazingly, no other track from the CD even hit the charts. This is incredible given the fact that the CD also includes several tracks that equal if not surpass the first single in quality.
Immediately, the title track comes to mind. N'Dea Davenport gave one of the best vocal performances that year in a song that is as uplifting as it is powerful. The instrumentation is incredibly rich with a finish that is dynamite. It also tells a great story. The songs makes you wish that Hollywood would not limit today's musical films to strictly animated films. Simply put, the song is a show stopper.
For fans of 1970s funk that may have not experienced the Heavies before, their sound is a blend of the Average White Band and Tower of People with a softer side, somewhat reminiscent of groups like Loose Ends ("Stay a Little While, Child") and Seawind ("What Cha Doin'"). Definitely, a combination that separates them from the pack.
First and foremost, a great band, the Heavies kick some serious butt on the instrumental front. "Ten Ton Take," "Snake Hips" and a jam session entitled "Los Burritos" are all solid. The predominantly instrumental "Have a Good Time," has a solid groove as well. Also check out the tail end of "People Giving Love." In the latter track they slip a segue at the end that is so f-u-n-k-y.

This CD is why the Brand New Heavies are my favorite group. Their funky style and N'Dea Davenport's soulful voice are a perfect combination. And the songs will make you want to get up and shake your groove thang!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my all time favorite albums February 24, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
I first heard this album in undergraduate school in the mid 1990s at a record shop on my birthday. I only heard one song, "Dream on Dreamer" and decided to buy the cassette tape (then) without listening to the full album. Boy, am I glad I did! I played that album (along with a Morrissey album) non stop throughout the summer. And nearly 20 years later, I'm still playing The Brand New Heavies' "Brothers and Sisters", which is now on my Ipod. All the music still sounds fresh, not dated. I loved every song on this album. The American version of "Brothers and Sisters" does not have The song, Midnight at the Oasis, like the British version one. But, I believe that the songs contained better, funkier transitions, and I liked the American version of "Dream on Dreamer" over the British one. But, N'Dea Davenport's voice is superb. Just wonderful, wonderful music. Still a favorite, still constantly played.

BNH really broke loose with this one, an intoxicating mix of jazz ("Snake Hips"), funk ("Fake"), and soul ("Spend Some Time").

5.0 out of 5 stars A Flawless CD, Couldn't Make it Better if they Tried.
If I were trapped on a desert island with a cd player and I could choose one CD, this would be it. Brother Sister is flawless, plain and simple.
