Biography

Whether she was singing pop-friendly urban soul or acting in her own family-oriented sitcom, Brandy's winningly wholesome persona helped catapult her to stardom during her teenage years. She scored the longest-running number one female duet in chart history (teamed with Monica on "The Boy Is Mine"), a testament to her mainstream appeal, and she spent several years as the title ...

Product Description

BBC Review

Unless you grew up watching Moesha, Brandy has unfairly struggled to make much of a long term impact on us here in the UK. Although we might still be slightly in awe of the fierceness of The Boy Is Mine, albeit over ten years ago, the average person may struggle remember many of her other 11 top 40 hits. Now returning after a four year break which saw the explosion of Beyonce and Rihanna as R&B superstars, is there any room left for in our hearts for Brandy?

Her fifth album arrives after several years of personal trauma following Brandy's involvement in a serious car crash. A vulnerable and revealing album, the title track calls out for forgiveness and declares herself as, ''fragile and broken, perfectly human''. Although names like Missy Elliot, Taio Cruz, Keri Hilson and Timbaland were all touted as writers on this album, it ends up being mainly written and produced by long term collaborator, Rodney Jerkins, aka Darkchild. Lead single, Right Here, hits the mark, with a haunting piano topline and retro ''oh oh ohs'', creating an almost gospel sound and reminding us how sweet Brandy's voice can sound. Understated ballad Long Distance is just as good as If I Were A Boy and should be a global hit, beating with surging strings and tenderness. Expect to hear this one sound-tracking a heartbreaking moment on a Grey's Anatomy finale sometime soon.

Although there's nothing as fiesty as 2002's What About Us or jittery as the Timbaland produced Afrodisiac, midtempo highlights The Definition and Piano Man sound bang up to date practising their best Ryan Tedder impression by matching synths, drums and a sweet vocal to great effect. Plus our very own Natasha Bedingfield teams up with Brandy to write uplifting album closer, Fall.

Concentrating on melodies and inspiration, Human, is a mature, sensitive album. Although complete with stunning vocals, its lack of daring and experimentation could be its downfall though, with her once faithful audience now utterly devoted to dancefloor driven R&B. --Talia Kraines

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful!!!! 17 Jan 2009
Format:Audio CD
This is, without a doubt, the most beautiful album she has produced. The lyrics are wonderful as well as the smooth tones of her slow jams (True, Long Distance) and the amazing beats (Piano Man, Warm It Up, Torn Down). Every song on the album is brilliant!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superwoman in Disguse 1 April 2009
Format:Audio CD
This album is just brilliant from the Definition to Fall. I have all the previous album and i was disapontied with Afrodisac compared to Full Moon. I also have the Best of which don't know why i got it just a stupid impulse buy anyway Human. The best song has to be Piano Man and the song I don't like has to be Long distance but I do love how the end of Piano man takes you into Long Distance. Even though i don't like the track I don't jump up to change it so it's an album for me which I can listen to right till the final track and how many of them make me do that.
Humam is a great track just reminding us of how we arn't all perfect and have our flaws wow it's actually depresing lol.
Sorry for the Bad spelling on this review and the others fro that manner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Her best album to date 4 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD
This is a suprisingly good album - lots of smooth upbeat original tracks - great for listening to before a night out. Her voice is in great form, there's a lot of passion in her voice and the songs flow well from one to another.
I really like the songs:
'1st and love' (continuously playing - very catchy, upbeat, feel good song)
'chamoflage' (very good lyrics and very emotional. Catchy chorus '...these flaws I got, are a part of who I am. Take me or not...'
'Torn Down' (Really good voice and music. Why isn't this the lead single?)
'Piano Man', 'True', 'Fall' (really fresh and original songs - very well sung.)
The lead single 'Departed' is also very good, but I think there are even better songs on the album (mentioned above).

I don't like the song 'a cappella' made up of only Brandys voice - there's too much going on and it sounds messy and I don't like the talking interlude/intro/outro. But apart from that it's a very good album.

(I have her previous 2 albums and I found them disappointing. It was clear she had a talent and a unique singing style but overall the albums were quite bland and songs didnt make best use of her talents. But with this new album everything is spot on!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album 25 Jun 2009
By J. Sen
Format:Audio CD
What a great album! chilled, catchy, with a real edge. Best songs would be Definition, Piano Man, Shattered Heart, Right Here (Departed). Still listening to songs from this album most days. Brandy never dissapoints with her albums, great songs and no album fillers like most! Worth a buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Brandy yet 10 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD
I'm not a big R&B fan, but I do enjoy a few selected artists, like Brandy and Toni Braxton for their distinctive and beautiful voices.

'Human' is Brandy's best album yet. She builds on her strengths with each new release. This really is a superb piece of work.

Best tracks:

1. Definition
8. Camouflage
9. Torn Down
10. Human

3.0 out of 5 stars difficult to call.... 8 July 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
this is the polar opposite of the music i usually listen to but bought it on the strength of 1 track "long distance" which is a great song and really reflects what my gf and i are going through. its all pretty good r n b and its growing on me but not really in my comfort zone!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Another great album by Brandy
I was disappointed with the previous "Afrodisiac" album, but this album brings Brandy back to where she should be. A beautiful album which I will play over and over.
