Initially I ordered this album because of the song "This is not a love song", which I heard on a cable music channel. I began searching the local music resources
to no avail and when I found it on Amazon, I ordered it immediately. Playing the album continuously after receiving it, I discovered that this is truly one of the best albums I have ever purchased. Shakura S'aida is a very talented artist whose rendition of "This is not a love song" is fantastic and obviously my favorite. However, she exhibits the wide range of her talent on several other songs in this album, particularly on "Angels on high", which is also very impressive. Overall this is a great album.

I orginally bought his album after listening to Ms. S'Aida on her album called Blueprint. It is a phenomenal album in my opinion.

However, comparing Blueprint with Brown Sugar is night and day. I haven't taken the time to figure out why - change in producer or what, but I do know I cannot make it through Brown Sugar in one sitting. While I rated several songs on Blueprint at four stars, I rated most of the songs on Brown Sugar two or three stars.

S'Aida has a good voice but lacks the emotional depth that most of her contemporaries have (Ruthie Foster, Shemekia Copeland, Maria Muldaur, Janiva Magness, EC Scott, and dozens of others). Even on her song about "he reached my sweet spot," she might as well have been singing the phone book. Again, her emotion on Blueprint is much better.

I was truly disappointed in this album since my expectations were very high after listening to Blueprint. I find Brown Sugar lacking in both emotion and fire.
