Playing it safe Chris, but still an amazing album!
on 14 January 2013
This album has nothing on F.A.M.E. which was such an amazing comeback album, that it would have been something incredible if Fortune had stunned more than that one.
Anyway, upon listening to Fortune, there's certainly an element of Chris Brown just 'Playing it safe' and sticking to what he does best. I wouldn't say there are many risks in this album, certainly not as varied as F.A.M.E was, but even still its a very respectable album! As usual, its another well balanced album that flows well. You've got your brilliant up-beat songs like the opener 'Turn up the music' and also the smash hit that is 'Don't Wake me Up' but then he also slows it down with some pretty impressive songs such as 'Don't Judge Me' and 'Four Years Old' (Two of my personal favorites).
I wouldn't say I was disappointed with any of the main CD, but the deluxe version, which comes with a second CD isn't all that. I think if you're planning on buying the deluxe version, you should give them a listen to first, because its not got the 'WOW' factor that the main CD had, so save disappointment and listen to them first!
That said, the deluxe CD does have some pretty good songs on, but then some pretty drab ones too. I wasn't overly impressed with 'Touch Me' or 'Tell somebody' but the others were pretty decent, especially the closing track 'Do It Again'!
Fortune is definitely worth the money and you won't regret it, however the deluxe version might not be to everyones taste, even hardcore CB fans like myself.
Oh, and if you haven't got F.A.M.E yet, what are you playing at!? ;) #TeamBreezy
