I feel it takes a brave singer to try and fuse hip-hop with soul, especially a male singer. And I mean hip-hop with SOUL and not hip-hop with r&b, which I feel any Tom, Dick or Harry can do. D'Angelo was able to carry it off very successfully as was Cee-Lo Green (aka half of Gnarls Barkley), but I struggle to think of anyone else.

Sleepy Brown - like Cee-Lo, he is a member of OutKast's Dungeon Family - has given it his best shot here. I remember when I first heard his voice on the OutKast hit "The Way You Move" and I knew it just a matter of time before his solo work came out. Well, here it is.

From when I heard the first few seconds of the first track "I'm Soul", I knew this was going to be something special. Musically, at least. Okay, the song does sample Teddy Pendergrass's "Come Go With Me" but it's done so cleverly you'd have to be an absolute anorak to spot it. Musically, the rest of the album is a masterpiece no question. All credit due to the Organized Noize crew for their very skillful production on most of the songs.

Some of my favourites include: "Margarita" featuring Pharrell and Big Boi, which is just a fun tune; "Dress Up", which made me feel all nostalgic for the days when people used to make real music; "One Of Dem Nights", which has a really funky backbeat to it; "Sunday Morning" and the very necessary "I Can't Wait", featuring OutKast themselves.

Sleepy can definitely sing and while I acknowledge those who hear traces of Marvin or Curtis in his voice, I feel he definitely has his own. Where I would advise him to brush up though is on his lyrical depth. For all the brilliant musicality and strong vocals on show here, there's very little lyrical depth, if any. That's one of the main differences between soul and r&b and if he doesn't know that, he should go back into the archives and check it out a bit more closely.

Or he could listen to some Anthony Hamilton.

I think the ablum could have been a little bit better, with the time he had to put it out.I agree with every one else he's tries to sound like Marvin Gaye.This is not Sleepys' first ablum,if you can find it pick up Sleepys'Theme The Vinyl Room you will enjoy that .

Sleepy Brown is known for his unmistakable crooning on various Dungeon Family projects making the songs that much more enjoyable. With 2 releases under his belt already; The timeless Vinyl Room, and the group release Society Of Soul - BrainChild, he finally gets a major label release that is long overdue. Sleepy gave us a small sample of what was to come on Big Boi's Purple Ribbon album (Me And My Baby & My Cadillac also featured on this album). Sleepy pumps his heart and soul into this album as every song is a standout. I remember playing this cd so much when it came out that I had to sit it down for a while. Now that it's spring time I can break it back out and pick up right where I left off. You can play the album straight through because the production is on point and Sleepy's smooth soulful voice never bothers you. My favorite songs are Get 2 It, Dress Up, Margarita, I'm Soul, Me & My Baby, Till Your Legs Start Shaking. It's a tie for best song between Sunday Morning and One Of Dem Nights which are both masterpieces in their own right. And just when you thought it couldn't get any better they add the classic I Can't Wait ft. Outkast (from the Barbershop 2 soundtrack) that was only released on that soundtrack previously (which wasn't that good by the way). A great addition to the cd and even more reason to pick up this album. Sleepy Brown released one of the best albums of 06 with this one and since you probably already slept on it, don't keep hitting that snooze button. 5 stars.

Honestly, I give this album, 3.5 stars. I was kinda dissapointed with Sleepy lyrically, but he makes up for it with beats and catchy phrases. I love the live instruments, being that every song is not computer generated. I don't know, I just thought that him being around the likes of Outkast and Goodie Mob would exert some influence lyrically, but the lyrics are nothing profound. All in all, I like the album, reminds me of a pimp soundtrack, lol, easy on the ears, his vioce reminds me of Marvin Gaye on some songs. Some of my favorites are I'm Soul and Sunday Morning

I have been waiting for this album since I Can't Wait came out. It is def not what I expected, but I have not been able to turn it off...I take it to work and bed everyday. It makes me want to go out steppin...I LOVE IT. If you are sick of listening to the same thing being sung by the same people then this is the album is for you.

After ten years of performing countless OutKast guest spots and good collaboration albums like Vinyl Room and Society of Souls, Sleepy Brown has finally released his debut solo album "Mr. Brown". "Mr. Brown" is an extremely refreshing album because it sounds exactly as a Sleepy Brown album should sound. It is filled with light, upbeat love songs with nostalgic production and good collaborations. Sleepy emerges as a star on this album, using his high, unique voice to create songs reminiscent of the music of decades long past. The songs are filled with strings, horns, and synths that bring to mind 70s soul and sometimes even older music. Sleepy doesn't really bring any surprises here, but I am pleased with that, he makes an album that sounds as a Sleepy Brown album should. "Mr. Brown" is an excellent album and one of the best R&B albums I have heard in a long time.

The album begins with the excellent "I'm Soul", a song with production sounding like a 70s song, with light, simple lyrics that allow Sleepy to display his great talent. The single "Margarita" is an amazing standout. It has an ultra-catchy beat courtesy of Pharrell Williams, it stays stuck in my head for hours, and Big Boi provides a nice guest appearance. Sleepy and Pharrell's singing make this one a track to remember. "Get 2 It" is reminiscent of a 50s or 60s pop song, with a nostalgic piano line and wailing chorus at the end. "Dress Up" is another blast from the past, it's a nice song about dancing and having a night out. I love "One of Dem Nights", it has a nice understated funky backing and Sleepy shines once again. Sleepy's classic solo cut "Me, My Baby, & My Cadillac" is included here, it was first released on the Purple Ribbon label's "Got Purp? Vol. 2" compilation a year ago.
