I was honestly into Brandy's last album, some of the songs were good, some of them were too yawn, and sadly, it wasn't as big as it should have been, and I think that it was kind of sad to see one of my favorite singers' albums go down the drain like that, but when I first realized that she was going to make a new album, I was having doubts if it would be one of her biggest ones yet, and I'll say that I was so wrong, when she first released "Put It Down", yeah, I thought it was okay at first, but then, the song grew on me, like a lot, and when "Wildest Dreams" was released as a single, that's when I KNEW that this was going to be her best album.
And whoop-de-doo, I was so right. This album was highly amazing, now here's my track by track review.
Intro - 5/5 --------- I honestly loved the introduction of the album, it was kind of like the introduction of what's to come, the music kind of reminded me a bit of Full Moon's "B-Rocka Intro."
Wildest Dreams - 5.5/5 ---------- The beat of this song, it's like BOOM-BOOM-BAM, and it's so addictive, her vocals on this song are highly amazing, and I love that she's actually breaking out of that hurt and the pain and putting in more pride and care in relationships, this is the best song for love.
So Sick - 4.5/5 ---------- This is when the feeling of the sound kind of slows down a bit. I loved this song too, but at the other side, I did feel like it needed more umph for me to repeat it as much, but those vocals are really hypnotizing.
Slower - 5/5 ----------- Chris Brown should really write more for Brandy. Although, the sexual side of Brandy seems to be out of her comfort zone, I feel like she still takes it to what an actual sexual song should be, it should be simple and sensual. The beat also makes the song 10 times as perfect.
No Such Thing As Too Late - 5.5/5 --------- Without this song, this album would totally incomplete, Rico Love makes the song amazing as well. At first, Brandy's vocals go from being soft and sweet to being serious and deep, her voice really shows a lot in this song, it shows that Brandy still has that magic from her Never Say Never - Full Moon days.
Let Me Go - 5/5 --------- I love the fact that she used Lykke Li as a sample in her song, however, the only thing that's kind of making me a little angry about this song is that it's too ... you know, quick, I wish it was longer, but forget the length, the song is really interesting and really catchy, and very likely easy to dance to.
Without You - 5.5/5 ---------- This was one of her best thorough vocal songs ever in this album, the beat also fits her voice, it's easy for me to understand the emotion in her voice when she sings, especially in the beginning, but at the chorus is where the emotion gains.
Put It Down - 5/5 ------------ Now, this is where I first thought Brandy wasn't going to improve with her new album, but realizing how much it grown on me, I changed my mind, the only thing that kind of makes me dislike this song is Chris Brown's rap, I would have preferred a duet, Brandy singing on one first verse and Chris on the second verse. But overall, I love the song.
Hardly Breathing - 5.5/5 ----------- Just like the Wildest Dreams, NSTATL and Without You, I could feel emotion in this song, and on top of that, Rico Love produced it. I loved this song to death,, I repeated this song non-stop, and it's just beyond amazing, and it's definitely a highlight from Two Eleven.
Do You Know What You Have - 5/5 -------- I loved this song. That's all I have to say. Just loved it, I don't even think that there is any good actual reasons of why, it's just too amazing.
Scared of Beautiful - 5.5/5 ----------- Now, I'll say, I LOVED Frank Ocean's version, and it's just so hard to compare two amazing artist versions together. But if I had any say, I loved Brandy's attempt. Frank Ocean is an amazing writer, and I'm kind of glad that Brandy's singing more challenging songs.
Wish Your Love Away - 5.5/5 ---------- Mario Winans. Thank you for writing this for Brandy. This song is highly amazing, the beat fits Brandy's voice definitely, it reminds me of Full Moon. The thing that I'm also glad is that she's taking challenges by using more "bad" words, although, I'm sure that's not what she wants, but "All them other bitches you could do without," kind of had me in awe, I loved the way she said it, but the emotion in this song is great.
Paint This House - 5/5 ----------- This honestly reminds me of something Drake would collaborate on, Rico Love did amazing on this song, and I think that if Brandy makes a new album years later, she should stick to Rico Love and Bangladesh and leave Rodney Jerkins/Darkchild alone, because her new style is showing because of this song.
Can You Hear Me Now, Music and What You Need - 4.5/5 ----- I'll be honest and say that I wasn't really fond of the bonus tracks as I thought I would, but the two highlights were Can You Hear Me Now and What You Need, I wasn't as interested in Music, but either way, they were all amazing as ever. What You Need has it's sexual type of side, it goes from a rough violin type of style in the beginning, and lowers down to a pop type of feeling, while Can You Hear Me Now has it's amazing vocals and it's amazing beat.
OVERALL. Two Eleven is just what Brandy needed to make the amazing comeback, it didn't even have to be as perfect, and it wasn't horrible at all, this was just right, just what the fans needed. Two Eleven is BY FAR, the best R&B album this year, no doubt about it.
