Chris Brown “F.A.M.E” Official Album Review!

So……. I spun this album for the first time expecting “The Emancipation of Chris Brown”, a mega album crammed with r&b gold, much like his hit “Deuces”  and “No Bullsh**” or heavier hitting, grittier tracks like his Busta Rhymes and Lil Wayne assisted “Look At Me Now” but what I got was “Graffiti”….

This album is NOT AT ALL what the singles and promo have led you and I to believe but that doesn’t mean Chris hasn’t delivered a solid follow up.

Highlighted Tracks:

* Deuces

* Look At Me Now

* Wet The Bed

* No Bullsh**

I remember back before Nicki’s album came out, the mass media and her naysayers all thought “Your Love” and “Check It Out” were the best of her but when the album hit the shelves we knew she was much more. “Your Love” is hardly the strongest song on that debut and the material that she had recorded was actually better then the singles we had heard up to that point. That’s what happen with “F.A.M.E” but in reverse… The singles Chris has sent to radio are the best the album has to offer. The other material is “good” at best but not great, not epic, not fire like we all were expected. I thought Hurricane Chris was coming…. This was suppose to be his “B’Day” but there won’t be anything special at all about “F.A.M.E” come March 22nd 2011. The fans will spin it and the vast majority of them will be either put off by how pop/commercial the music is or slightly disappointed that the r&b King he’s become over the past 6 month was just for promo sake…

How are you going to have Lil Wayne and Busta on the same album with Justin Bieber??? #FOOL!

“Beautiful People” is a decent song but it won’t make it to my iPod, none of the songs will, aside from the singles that I’d download previously. His next single will likely be “Wet The Bed” Ft Ludacris. That song will do well at urban radio but it’ll only reinforce the lie Mr Brown and his label has been selling since last summer… “Raymond vs Raymond” is a better album.

“F.A.M.E” isn’t bad but it’s not good either, it’s just okay.. There’s nothing special about the vocals, production or writing outside of the singles we’ve already heard. Most of the production is all over the place and most of the filler tracks sound like sh** that’s already on the radio courtesy of other artist. When is Chris going to make his “Thriller” album???

TrueClefMusic Score Card:

Production: 4

Listenability: 3

Writing: 4

Vocals: 4

Rating: 3.75

Not bad Chris, come harder next time…
