Human Album Reviews

What prevents Human from being a sort of Afro Pt. 2, then, is a minor onslaught of adult-contemporary schmaltz, something Afrodisiac

‘s producers wisely eschewed. And the presence of ’90s-style ballads like the title track and “True” (both, it should be noted, not produced by Jerkins) should come as no surprise given that the album is an obvious attempt at recapturing Brandy’s past successes. Second single “Long Distance” sounds like a cliché power ballad that could have been sung by Phil Collins or Peter Cetera in the ’80s as the theme for some big Hollywood popcorn flick.

 

MTV Buzzworthy-Album Preview: Brandy, “Human” (12/2/08): We already told you we’ve been down with Brandy since the days when she was sittin’ up in her room, dating B-baller Kobe Bryant and challenging Monica to an angry duet-slash-duel over some playa who was probably out two-timing (three-timing?) them both. And while we seriously regret our self-imposed Brandy hiatus, we’ve since reformed our ways by giving her new album, Human, a listen — and FYI, we love, love, LOVED it.

Turns out, Brandy’s still got the same ability to rock a mic, the same wispy, little-girl voice and the same ability to get her sticky-as-superglue songs stuck in our head all frickin’ day. Head over to MTV.com’s The Leak to check out the record Brandy calls “my most personal album to date,” and keep your ears peeled for already-released singles like “Right Here (Departed)” and hot new tracks like “Fall,” (a collab with Natasha Bedingfield!)

Also? We STILL can’t believe Audrina Patridge slipped out in the middle of Brandy’s studio sesh on The Hills this season! Hmm, it’s almost like she was too busy thinking about Justin Bobby (a.k.a. her commitment-phobic sometimes-boyfriend) to pay attention to “Long Distance” (a.k.a. Brandy’s song about totally impossible relationships). Crazy, huh?? (Link)

Artist: Brandy/Album: Human/Release Date: 12.9.08

More than 4 years after the release of the very introspective Afrodisiac, which was released during a period of evolution and frustration, Brandy re-emerges with her fifth studio album. This release is equally as personal but with a considerably lighter feel. Human is an album about the discovery of self and finding joy in that discovery. It’s very melodious in nature with some understandably solemn undertones, stronger vocals and a focus on more mature content. Longtime fans will notice less up-tempo tracks, replaced by more slow jams and mellow mid-tempos.

The album opens with an interlude of Brandy defining what it means to be human, followed up by “The Definition”. This song marks the official return of B-Rocka, an alias coined for the songstress by longtime collaborator Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins, the producer on this song. A soft piano melody is the highlight of “Piano Man”, one of the many emotive mid-tempo tracks: “Play me a song about heartache, I promise I can sing every word…” The second single, “Long Distance”, is a vocal highlight, a power ballad that showcases Brandy’s vocal maturity and is another product of her reunion with Darkchild. Camouflage is an anecdote about finding comfort in your own skin and not in the perspectives of others. Love is welcomed throughout this album, but given a disclaimer on “Shattered Heart”. This song is a highlight for me because it just sounds good all around, from the haunting vocal background to the depth of the story and metaphoric lyrics. “1st and Love” is just plain cute: Brandy recounts her first interaction with the object of her affection on that figurative corner. Vocally, “True” is also quite notable as is “Fall”, the closing ballad co-written by Natasha Bedingfield. The only downfall on this project is “Warm It Up (With Love)”; though inspirational in nature, it comes off as slightly cheesy and rather poppy.

There’s a lot to be said for putting out such a great album after 14 years in the industry – and I STILL wanna be down! I was quite impressed at how poetic this album is, from start to finish. With each new release, her vocals have gotten stronger, her content has matured as she has grown, and she reaches new heights. It’s also great to see that after one album without him, she and Darkchild have rekindled their musical chemistry and are as great now as ever. The past few years have proven to be a test of Brandy’s will to persevere and still return to the one thing that gives her the most joy – her music. Through love lost and found, there is an inner strength and peace that Brandy seems to have found that shines through on this entire album… and that’s what makes her human! (link)

HXMagazine: Brandy “Human”
The first few tracks of Brandy’s latest are pure perfection—the songstress’ signature blend of soul and R&B at its absolute finest. Midway through, the album sinks into a quagmire of forgettable ballads, but it’s soon redeemed by mid-tempo ear candy like “1st & Love.” Overall, the album is an artistic triumph, and some may even respond favorably to the overwrought ballads. What’s more, the album’s uplifting themes will inspire you to keep going when you’re having a shitty day. (Epic)—Bill Hanson (Link)

The Sun Review: BRANDY – Human ***/5
FOUR years since her last album Afrodisiac and two years on from her tragic car crash that saw another driver die, Brandy emerges from her darkest period with an honest and emotional record.

Lyrically the album explores the highs and lows of being human, the majority coming from Brandy’s daily diary.

The subjects and directness earn respect, but musically it’s not hard-hitting enough. JS

The Guardian Review (****/5): Brandy Norwood was last heard pondering her future in music on her excellent 2004 album Afrodisiac – so her return, after a four-year hiatus that saw her involved in a car crash, is a surprise. Human is a thoughtful, intimate work on which Norwood sings movingly about fragility and fear. “Play me a song about heartache – I swear I can sing every word,” she pleads on Piano Man. Something’s Missing is an astonishing near-a cappella on which Brandy is accompanied by multiple versions of herself – humming a droning bassline, providing an insistent rhythm. The album’s finest moment comes when Norwood turns to face the world, though: Right Here (Departed) is a cosmic, ride-or-die declaration of epic scope.

Associated Content (****/5): Brandy is back with a new album called “Human”. The album is due in stores on December 09, 2008 according to her official website. After having the opportunity to listen to her album on MTV’s the leak, I must say that this is one of her best albums yet. The album is full of very heartwarming and touching songs. It seems that she put a lot of her personal life into this particular album.

This album also shows how much she has grown as a singer and a songwriter over the course of her career. Some of the best songs on the album seem to be “Warm it up with Love”, “Long Distance”, and “Fall”. Her single “Right Here”, has done very well since it’s release. With a total of fifteen songs on this album, it is truly a wonderful combination of songs. After several very difficult years in her life here fifth album shows her ability to move on, and progress as a musician. Her song “Human”, is really one of the best on the album in my opinion. This seems like one of the most personal songs on the album. Some of the writers on this particular album include Rodney Jerkins, Brian Kennedy, and several more.

Many are eager to see how her album will do on the charts. Brandy has had plenty of hits in the past, but many are weary if this one will be up to par. She currently has a lot of competition as well. With both Britney’s huge comeback, and Beyonce’s double disk album, there is plenty of fresh new music. Many fans are also very eager to see if she will go back to doing television and movie roles as well. She had her own hit show from 1996 to 2001, and supporting and staring roles in several movies. There are rumors of a new sitcom in the works but no one really knows for sure. One thing for sure is that it will be interesting to see how her album does, and what will follow. You can post your thoughts and comments below this article in the comments section. (Link)

Entertainment Weekly Music Review: Human (2008) by Brandy
by Henry Goldblatt
Brandy, where were you a few months back? At that time, the Top 40 fans among us were so finished kissing a girl and were besieged by some Pussycat Doll atrocity. A frothy confection of pop like this one would have been manna. Unfortunately, it’s a few months later, and Human will be the third holiday buy for mainstream-music fans, behind Beyoncé’s and Pink’s superior, more original albums. Rightly so, since by comparison, Brandy isn’t offering much of 
 a rallying cry: ”If you like it then you shoulda put a ring on it” seriously dusts Brandy’s ”I’m only human — forgive me.”

Unsurprisingly (if you’ve read a tabloid over the past five years), contrition is Human’s major theme. She’s sorry. She’s learned from her mistakes. She’s more mature…except where her voice is concerned. The huskiness that defined Brandy’s prior work has been replaced by wispier and higher tones. The result is pleasant but far less ambitious than her last CD, 2004’s Afrodisiac. Longtime collaborator Rodney Jerkins has crafted some standouts, like ”Piano Man” (thankfully not 
 a remake), that are hooky enough to combat Early-’90s Midtempo R&B Malaise. (Not recognized by the American Medical Association, but it should be.) First single ”Right Here (Departed)” is fun but has a touch of that condition — or it did before DJs Bobby Blanco and Miki Moto recently made a kickin’ disco remix of it. Sadly, their version isn’t included here. Release that and apology accepted. Grade: B (Link)

US Magazine: ***/4: In the years since 2004’s Afrodisiac, Brandy broke off an engagement and was involved in a deadly car accident. And though her latest CD employs a self-reflective (and mostly somber) tone, she has a hopeful outlook. Examples? The uplifting single “Right Here (Departed)” and heavenly ballad “Long Distance,” which she sings to daughter Sy’rai. (Epic) (Link)

AllMusic.com ***1/2 of 4by Andy KellmanHuman’s release marked the longest wait between Brandy albums, if only by a few months, and it’s easy to understand why. After Afrodisiac’s June 2004 release, Brandy dropped her manager, left Atlantic, broke off an engagement, was a judge on America’s Got Talent, got into a car accident that caused the death of a driver, and signed with Epic (possibly in that order). Issued a few months prior to facing a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the husband of the woman who died in the accident, Human is easily the most platitudinal Brandy album, but it is no less compelling for it, even when blocking out the complicated context of the singer’s personal life. Renewing her alliance with Rodney Jerkins, whose production and co-songwriting work dominate the album’s first half, Brandy is clearly in a comfort zone that enables her to open up more than ever. This is demonstrated from the beginning, in “The Definition,” where she declares a clean slate with trembling resilience. Through most other voices, optimistic “everyone together now” songs like “Warm It Up (With Love)” and soul-searching adult contemporary ballads like “Human” and “Fall” (written with Natasha Bedingfield) would wilt, but there’s no denying Brandy’s unforced sincerity. Nothing here will get any party started; Human is nothing if not a serious album, not to mention the least enjoyable release in Brandy’s catalog. But it could very well be her most useful one. (Link)

MusicOMH.com ***: It’s curious how, with Christmas approaching, the R&B and rap big guns get out the heavy armoury and release their new long players. Yet the return of Brandy is of particular interest, with the spectre of a 2006 California car accident still hanging over her in the form of civil action.

Recent interviews have found the singer telling how it has completely changed her life, and it’s not long into Human before feelings run deeper than anything she’s previously sung. You can certainly hold off with that pigeon hole as well, for it doesn’t take long to realise this is not your average, slushy fodder. Brandy’s singing has real depth and emotion, a lack of the drama queen and a willingness to renounce vocal histrionics.

This means the listener actually concentrates more on the subject matter to hand, and in Piano Man that topic is heartbreak. “Play me a song about heartache, I promise I could sing every word,” she sings – from the bottom of her heart. It’s a striking pay-off to the album’s more upbeat tracks, which up the tempo a little to a loping disco beat in a similar manner to Alicia Keys’ recent work.

While the lyrics are bound to be scrutinised for any nod in the direction of the car accident, they do in fact reveal more depth to the songs written for Brandy. Reunited with her initial songwriter for the majority of the songs, Rodney “Darkchild” Jenkins, there’s less reliance on studio polish and more on genuine emotion, with more rhythmic impetus written in too.

Guest writers do appear, and of most interest is Natasha Bedingfield’s co-written Fall, the album’s closing track. A flighty piano verse gives way to a chorus of understated power, though the production does feel overdone as Brandy reaches for the big chorus. Inevitably there are the more indulgent ballad moments, and True is one of these, but by and large the edge cultivated in the faster tracks carries through.

“What I feel being a human being is having the freedom to be yourself, not caring what other people think” goes the Janet Jackson-style intro to this album, scripted to sound as natural as possible. In succeeding for much of Human, Brandy makes a committed and surprisingly emotive return. – Ben Hogwood (Link)

DJBooth.net: ***1/5 Brandy – Human -Review by Nathan S.: If you were born after 1990, you probably don’t understand just how huge Brandy once was. Less sensual than Janet, more street than Whitney, less diva than Mariah, Brandy was the girl next door – if the girl next door made mesmerizingly catchy hit songs. Her albums went platinum (Never Say Never), her songs were cultural landmarks (The Boy Is Mine) and she had her own hit TV show (Moesha). Brandy was more than a singer; Brandy was a phenomenon.

Fast forward to 2008. It’s been more than four years since Brandy has released an album, and in that time she’s had more of an impact on tabloid headlines – for her split from her “husband” and involvement in a fatal car accident – than on the music industry. As depressing as it is to write these words, her brother Ray J has spent far more time on the charts recently. Brandy’s slow decline from stardom isn’t an example of Ashanti Syndrome, when America tires of an artist for no discernable reason. No, Brandy’s current place at the relative periphery of the music industry she once owned is entirely due to the fact that America once knew and loved Brandy the girl. Brandy the woman, however, remains a mystery.

I wish I could say that Brandy’s new album Human will change all that, that it will catapult her back to the top of the charts, but it won’t. Human, an emotionally honest but musically unadventurous album which reunites Brandy with her long-time production partner Darkchild, is more than enough to make her old fan’s praise her return, but she’ll be hard pressed to compete with the likes of Rihanna and Beyonce for the same young-girl demographic that once adored her. Just take her lead single Long Distance, a live instrumentation slow jam that showcases Brandy’s newfound emphasis on highly personalized song writing. Brandy’s voice never overpowered you, it was always more conversational than orchestral, and time has given her vocals a slightly worn quality that only enhances the emotionally charged quality of the track. Long Distance treads some familiar musical ground, and treads it with a deft touch, but it won’t be enough to make an impact on the charts. On a similar level is the title track Human, a sparsely echoing track that has Brandy reconnecting with the every-girl quality that first made her so popular. It’s impossible to hear Human without thinking of the drama in her personal life that’s been splashed across the tabloid pages, and it’s moments like this that make Human Brandy’s most revealing album to date. At the same time, Human has the same “been there, done that” quality of Long Distance, it never quite kicks into that higher gear that all great songs have.     

Human is at its core an album of ballads, but from time to time it shows that Brandy can still put together something to make you move. Right Here (Departed), a rhythm heavy joint that adds some electronic synths and heavy claps to the usual ballad formula while Brandy lays down her typically flawless lyrics. It doesn’t have the sonically adventurous energy of her last album Afrodisiac, but it’s enough to get your head nodding. It’s the same story on Piano Man, an echoing track that’s (thankfully) an ode to her musical partnership with Darkchild, not a cover of the Billy Joel song. The swirling production feels upbeat, but Brandy embeds the tracks with a somber quality with lyrics like, “sing me a song about heartache, I promise I can sing every word.” In an album so in need of at least one high energy track the overall effect is disappointing, like going on vacation to Hawaii, only to have it rain the entire trip. Now I’m not suggesting that she go and get herself a T-Pain hook (thank Jesus she didn’t), but what makes a radio hit has changed a lot since the days of Sittin’ Up In My Room, and she would have done well to connect with some of the industry’s younger blood. Still, in the end Human feels like an album Brandy needed to make for herself as a sort of catharsis, not an album designed to launch her back into the spotlight, and on that level it succeeds admirably. Don’t call it a comeback, Brandy’s been here for years.

RWDmag.com: Online Review: Brandy – Human/Artist: Brandy/4/5 stars
Words by Emmanuel Ezugwu
: Brandy has always been one for radical intimacy ever since her ’94 self-titled debut – though, thankfully not the kind of intimate that Ray J, her younger brother/singer and sex tape star prefers. She won a Grammy in ‘98 for arguing with fellow pop chanteuse Monica on The Boy Is Mine, while on the final track of her last album Afrodisiac, she pondered whether there was still a place for her in the music biz against a reworking of Coldplay’s Clocks. The Timbaland produced Should I Go, ended with the declaration that Brandy wasn’t a quitter though the joi de vivé was shortlived.

Four years later and the 29 year-old has; parted from her record label, had her marriage to record producer Robert Smith exposed as a lie, been replaced as a judge on America’s Got Talent by Sharon Osbourne and got a tattoo of her most recent ex turned into a cat following their break up – amidst rumours of his infidelity. But even all this is eclipsed by her involvement in a 2006 car crash on an LA freeway that left a driver dead.

It’s no wonder then that on Human, Brandy forgoes lighthearted fare in favour of an introspective collection of emotive ballads and mid tempo tracks. “I make mistakes but I can’t turn back time/ I’m only human, forgive me,” she sings on the album’s title track, which is dedicated to the deceased victim (she was recently exonerated of all wrong doing). Elsewhere themes of grief, heartache and insecurity bleed through songs like Piano Man and the mesmerizing Something’s Missing, a track built up almost entirely of Brandy’s vocals. However the album far from self pitying.

If Human is seen as the musical equivalent of Brandy’s deepest most personal thoughts, then it also highlights her inner strength and resilience. First single Right Here (Departed), is a joyous ode to overcoming insurmountable odds whilst Fall, the piano crushed ballad she co-wrote with British song bird Natasha Bedingfield showcases her syrupy vocals to spine-tingling effect. Though devoid of pulsating club joints like Turn It Up provided from Afrodisiac to the ahead-of-its-time electro/R&B fusion of What About Us from 2002’s Full Moon, Human has a more direct pop agenda. The acoustic guitar led Torn Down, has a crisp country vibe and makes clear it’s intentions to cater for a Top 40 audience.

It’s intriguing that Brandy has chosen to expose her flaws and imperfects in such a personal way when artists these days are busy hiding behind their celebrity or inventing alter-ego’s to appear more super human. As a result Human feels like a reconciliation between her past tumultuous years and her present. “These flaws I’ve got, they’re a part of who I am/ take me or not” is the realisation she confidently emotes at the end of the CD as if reaching a breakthrough. Though to many Brandy may be regarded as a footnote in ’90s pop divadom, Human proves that speculation of her demise have been greatly exaggerated.
Human is out now on Epic Records (Link)

Digital Spy: By Nick Levine, Music Editor: Brandy: ‘Human’:It’s been over four years since Brandy last released an album – practically an aeon in the rapidly-evolving world of R&B. In that time she’s parted ways with her record label, joined and left the judging panel of America’s Got Talent and survived a fairly horrific LA car crash car in which a 38-year-old woman was killed. Though no criminal charges were brought against the singer, she currently faces a $50m lawsuit for wrongful death filed by the woman’s family.

It’s no surprise, therefore, that Human finds her vulnerable and reflective rather than sassy and saucy. “I’ve dropped all that baggage, let go out of that habit, the pain you can have it, ’cause now I’m content with me,” she sings on Human’s first proper song. Recurring themes on the album, which feels strikingly personal even though Brandy has songwriting credits on just two tracks, include self-acceptance, self-improvement and the healing power of love.

It’s also unsurprising that Brandy never tries anything particularly innovative here – after so long away from the charts, she seems content just to sound up-to-date. Though the album features contributions from a palette of producers – including Brandy’s longtime collaborator Rodney Jerkins, Toby Gad (Beyoncé, Fergie) and RedOne (New Kids, Lady GaGa) – there isn’t much in the way of variety. In fact, almost every track here is a bombastic slice of ‘Umbrella’-esque midtempo R&B.

However, this isn’t to say that Human lacks the odd standout moment. An overdubbed Brandy sounds almost celestial delivering a message of mutual support and love on ‘Right Here (Departed)’, while the skittering synths of ‘Piano Man’ house a fitting tribute to her musical partnership with Jerkins. Best of all is the giddy ‘1st & Love’, whose near-industrial beats capture all the giddy excitement of love at first sight.

Human isn’t the album to come for if you’re looking for bootylicious club bangers, and there’s probably nothing here to have Rihanna or Beyoncé tossing in their Egyptian cotton-clad four posters, but this is a solid collection of thoroughly dignified modern R&B. Given the turbulent time she’s had of it lately, solid and dignified is probably exactly what Brandy was going for. (Link)

NewsdayReview: Brandy’s new CD ‘Human’/Glenn Gamboa | DROPS December 9, 2008: Considering Brandy’s rocky recent past, the sweet serenity and uplifting R&B anthems that fill her new album, “Human” (Epic), are nothing short of stunning.

Although she doesn’t address the 2006 car accident that killed another driver on a Los Angeles freeway, Brandy is definitely a changed woman on her fourth album, her first effort since 2004’s middling “Afrodisiac.”

“These scars I’ve got, they’re a part of who I am,” Brandy sings on “Camouflage.” “Take me or not, but I finally understand. I’m so done trying to be everything you want.”

“Camouflage” is a worthy cousin to Beyoncé’s “Irreplaceable” that should share similar success, but it’s more about esteem-raising and self-improvement than a search for a sassy put-down.

It’s a feeling so ingrained in “Human” that the silky R&B anthem “Warm It Up With Love” isn’t just one of the album’s standout tracks, but its guiding principle.

With the help of producer Rodney Jerkins, Brandy radiates warmth and hopefulness throughout “Human” – not in the naive way of someone who doesn’t know any better, but in the determined way of someone who does.

Her delivery on the up-tempo “Right Here (Departed)” and the touching ballad “Long Distance” reflects those choices. There’s no showing off with vocal acrobatics or flashy production, just a premium on the melody and the mood.

With “Human,” Brandy has created an album of soulful solace that she seemed to need for herself. Then, she graciously shares it with the rest of us.

BRANDY “Human” THE GRADE B(+) (Link)

Boston.com Review: Long breaks are usually a bad idea in the pop music world, where trends change quickly. But sometimes those breathers allow fans a chance to miss their favorite artists, who do some maturing in private.

Brandy has been missed while she has faced some serious challenges – including being involved in a 2006 car accident that killed another driver – since her underrated 2004 release, “Afrodisiac.” But the former “Moesha” star has never made a bad album, and she’s not starting now with the appropriately rich and varied “Human.”

Her wisest move here is reuniting with the producer responsible for her greatest successes (“The Boy Is Mine”). Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins manages to balance cool and bubbly pop soul jams like “Piano Man” with warmer, more organic tracks like the gospel-tinged “Long Distance” and bring out the expressive best in her pleasantly raspy vocalizing.

She also collaborates with producer RedOne and labelmate Natasha Bedingfield on two of the album’s strongest ballads.

Messages of apology, self-acceptance, and surrender are threaded throughout in ways that feel both empowering and self-medicating. And while they may allude to her personal trials, the emotions are relatable. She rhapsodizes about love on the bouncy “The Definition.” She stands her ground on the resolute “Torn Down,” a crisp mix of static synths, acoustic guitar, and hand claps. And she cheerfully surveys her flawed, work-in-progress life and declares it good enough on the low-key amble of “Camouflage.”

“Human” is better than good enough. It’s a light, breezy listen that shows off Brandy’s resilience, humility, joy, and vibrancy. (Out tomorrow) (Link)

UrbanBridges.com:Brandy | Human (Epic) From the opening intro to Brandy’s fifth album “Human,” she lets listeners know her definition of being human. Having the freedom to be yourself, not caring what other people think and not being afraid. Just having that freedom to be you! Sentiments we all can understand. Sharing most of her life in the spotlight as a singer and actress – now at age 29 Brandy is ready to share her strength through it all with “Human.” The first track “The Definition,” produced by long time collaborator Rodney Jerkins starts the set off perfectly. The bass-driven song, speaks of being free and content & discovering the greatest thing of mankind..love. One of the best voices in music, Brandy illustrates her vocals throughout the disc – and shows why she’s still at the top of her game, nearly 15 years after the release of her debut album. “Piano Man” is without a doubt one of the albums highlights. The track showcases Brandy going hard once again over a Darkchild beat. As Brandy speaks to her Piano Man, “Play me a song about heartache, I promise I can sing every word, play me a song about love lost, that’s another one everyone’s heard. We can have the whole world signing tonight!” True Indeed!

Lyrically this is Brandy’s best album hands down! “I’ve evolved and my music has evolved with me and so the topic matters are a little different. They’re about self and being a better me and things like that. So they’re a little more inspirational and message driven than my old stuff.” Brandy shares with UrbanBridgez.com – Midi-Mafia produced the mid-tempo “Torn Down,” another album highlight. “True” if released as a single could easily follow the success of Brandy’s last huge Pop ballad “Have U Ever” which reached #1 on Billboards Hot 100 chart. Brandy’s versatility in her vocals have never sounded better over the RedOne production. “A Capella (Something’s Missing),” possibly the most creative song in Brandy’s catalog, features Brandy singing over her own vocals with no production. Hence the title “A Capella,” written by one of Brandy’s many fans TC, the song is sure to be a favorite for those who enjoy her sultry vocals with those incredible adlibs. Her voice stands alone..perfection at its best!

Overall, Brandy has endured more in her lifetime that most couldn’t imagine, this album is her testimony that she’s still standing and isn’t going anywhere!
