I pretty much echo the same sentiments as everyone. Album was good overall, but you could tell that Brandy at that time was still seeking commercial success and it showed in the quality of the album and the lack of direction. The only song that was personal was Wildest Dreams, but overall, just good songs thrown together.

The album lacked so much depth that the intro and the outro was the same boring instrumental.

!!!!

I still play Wildest dreams, So sick and slower. Wish your love away sometimes

Songs like Put it down and let me go were cute but not timeless. It just didn’t age well. Mixtape vibes. I’m still mad at the intro and outro.

Can we discuss Human again? I feel bad for shading ha for so many years.

 :stressed:

That is THE album I hate the most from Brandy.
I was just gonna say
Can we discuss Afro or FM? NSN
Can’t save the thread with Human  :everythingok:

If the new music ever comes I hope she breaks that 2nd single curse.. with how long she’s been gone she needs to drop 15 singles and videos at once tbh
too unsure about her choices for that.
she let people make her change her mind all the time so one day it's that song as the 2nd single and the next day it's "oh that other song will be the 2nd single"
i dont see how u can have ur singles lined up (at least the 3 1st ones) and be sure about them.. be ready and release them without blinkin'...

look.. when someone like Beyonce is releasin' her album she already KNOWS which songs are gonna be single (when it's not the whole album lol)...she knows where she's goin' and what to do with that album...

Brandy coulda been at that point in her career where she sould be sure of her songs choices and release wtf she wants withouth constantly 2nd guessing everything.
Dont get me wrong... 2nd-guessing things makes u move forward and not make certain mistakes but always 2nd guessing things makes u go nowhere.. and sometimes i feel likethat's the case with brandy music wise...hell i wouldn't be surprised to see her scrap all the work she did with DJ Camper for another route...

Yea I feel that it doesn’t get the love it deserves it’s a really good cohesive album. But it lacks a certain Brandy aspect about it.

No guarantee, but i can see the next album being something that people look too. TwoEleven was just a good collection of songs IMO

Nothing wrong with that but i hold brandy to a higher standard and i don’t think she held herself to one in that regard at the time.

Beautifully stated!!!

Great album, I’m not hearing any influence but
Slower
Without You
Wish Your Love Away
Hardly Breathing
Do You Know
Put It Down
Scared of Beautiful
So Sick
No Such Thing
Music

I genuinely like all those songs and she sang her face off
top 3 Brandy album for me

She really did what she needed w/that album

I mean ; Put It Down was a comeback tea for her

I don’t think so . I honestly don’t even think Brandy was inspired making the album . She even said so herself that she didn’t believe in it fully . So why would the masses? It’s cute but it isn’t iconic and timeless like her first 4 albums . I don’t even listen to 211 like that and If I do it’s mostly for Music , so sick or do you know.  I need BRANDY to remember who she is and truly make another masterpiece the girls will study for the next 20 years .

yeah the into and outro for 211... are you kidding me???? Like how did she let that fly?
