CD Reviews – Fortune

2012-08-04 15:33

It’s a standing ovation for the arsenal of killer beats from Chris Brown.

The album overflows with infectious beats that will have you bobbing your head, tapping your feet or getting downright dirty on the dance floor.

It is the most impressive collection of hits he has mustered in a long time. You’d be hard-pressed to find a lousy song or one that lacks in production values.

He sets the mood with the thumping Turn Up The Music, a lively track that has to be played on high volume.

The sound effects on Till I Die are delicious as well as the rapping by Big Sean and Wiz Khalifa. It will remind you of his last hit, Look At Me Now.

Party Hard will take you back to his 2011 hit, With You.

My favourite song is the ballad Don’t Judge Me, an honest and touching plea given his past (read, the Rihanna assault incident).

He goes sexy on 2012 and Biggest Fan, with spectacular results. Sweet Love sounds like a homage to the 1990s Freak Me by Silk.

In terms of style, Brown continues on F.A.M.E. and orbits between hard-core R&B, hip-hop and dance pop.

This one comes highly recommended.
