Brandy's self-titled debut album brings back good memories of the mid 90's.The album still sounds good after all these years."I wanna be down" was a hot track and it still is."Baby" is my all-time favourite song from Brandy,where she delivers an enthusiastic vocal performance."Best Friend" is all about having that one true friend in your life."Sunny Day" is a good mid-tempo song.The second half of the album is nothing but beautiful love songs.In the interlude,"I dedicate(Part 1)",she pays homage to artists who have inspired her musically,such as Whitney Houston, and she dedicates the album to her fans.The first part of "I dedicate" is fine,but she should'nt have recorded the other two interludes,because she said everything on the first part anyway.Overall this is a classic album from Brandy,and it showcases the phenomenal talent Brandy possesses.The songs are fun,emotional(Brokenhearted) and romantic(Give Me You).One of the best R&B debut albums of the 90's

Though she was so young when she came out(only15!) Brandy has proven to be superstar diva. She has a youthful, yet mature, wistfull voice that other young female artists can only hope to aspire to. She delivers gospel and soul through golden classics like her trademark"Baby" and "Broken hearted" "Best Friend" and "I wanna be down." You go Brandy!

Im listening to the samples provided here as a I write this and I cant help but to reminisce to a time when young pop singers such as Brandy, Aaliyah and Monica actually proved that youth does not equal immaturity..Case in point, Im still feeling the songs on here..Granted, Im a few years younger than they are now, but at that time, I would rock all of their albums till I couldnt recognize the voices anymore..But to get back to Brandy's album, even though the songs sound dated now, at that time, my fave songs were Baby, Broken hearted, Best Friend, Sunny Day, Love is on my side, pretty much the whole album..She is a good singer and I love how her voice is deep like it is.. She works with good producers to make an album worthy enough to listen to..Thank God that she is still around to make good music!!

Brandy
Brandy's first album Brandy was chosen because emotions grasp the younger audience. The song titles featured on the album are reflections of what occur in the real world. In comparison to other artists, on Brandy's first album she is very inspirational. Although this album was very successful in her early years, she was more mature in her later albums. Brandy writes songs that are very encouraging displaying, emotions from deep within.
Take for example the opening song from Brandy's Brandy. Her album begins with a song entitled "Moving On," reaching out to young an old who have their head on straight and know what they want out of life. She says repeatedly keep moving on if one is not prospering. If one is feeling down and needs a little boost of inspirations, one should turn on this and let it play through. She is unlike other artists who consistently speak about heartbreaks and turmoil. Brandy in this case would say, if someone were not treating you right "Move On." The lyrics are very touching. It talks about how she knows she has a purpose and she will not miss her blessing by forgetting who has brought her that far.
Brandy does not sing about the failure, bitterness, and mixed emotions that other artists do in sad love songs. She is not saying heartache does not exist, she is just well rounded person who can talk about everything, even the small things people look over. Traditional love songs consist of pains and misfortunes. In her early years she was focused on her future and what she could do to make the world better. In "Moving On" she says she is a leader, not a follower. This is showing she is strong willed.

It's so obvious that Brandy Norwood is very talented. What new female could just come out and sale 4 million copies of a debut album, especially for and urban artist. On this album entitled Brandy, Brandy shows us that beats don't make and album for her, she does. Brandy singing each and every song as though she had wrote it herself. Each song is very versatile, she a sprectrum from a Bohemian Rap feel, to Hip-Hop, to R&B and even some Rock Ballads. Her voice is definatley unique, being one of the only few altos, with an 3.5 octave span, she bring the feel of the 90's to life. So when you first hear this album, the first thing you will think is, "what was I first doing when I heard Brandy". This album is truly amazing.

I agree with another reviewer in stating that the mid 90's was the best time for urban music. With the likes of solo artists (Brandy, Monica, Aaliyah) and groups (TLC, Silk, Boyz II Men) ruling the r&b AND pop charts, who could argue? Brandy's debut is the epitome of that glorious time for urban music.

Spawning no less than FOUR huge hits ("Baby", "Best Friend", "I Wanna Be Down", "Brokenhearted"), Brandy became an instant bestseller, selling 4 million copies and still counting. Who could resist the irresistible grooves, the sultry-driven vocals, and most importantly, Brandy's sweet innocence? She was the entire package and the public responded warmly to her.

But enough about Brandy and the public response. What really sells this album, IMO, is the album tracks. And there are plenty to name. My personal favorite is "I'm Yours". This is quite possibly the best track on the album (even though "Brokenhearted" is a very close second). Brandy displays so much power and conviction into this song. It's a wonder it wasn't release as a single. Other highlights include "As Long As You're Here" (a smoky, midtempo tune reminiscent of jazzy rap), "Love Is On My Side" (a syrupy ballad also as charming as "Brokenhearted"), and "Give Me You" (a great closer to an otherwise stellar album).

In sum, Brandy turned out an very impressive debut album. Sometimes, you forget that she was only 14 at the time of release. Amazing huh? But believe it or not, better records would turn up for Brandy as her career took off (Never Say Never anyone?). However, this one has always been my personal favorite so I am biased in my review:). You know it. You love it. Get it if you don't have it.

Grade: A-
