Album Review

After the release of 2005’s barely promoted Libra, Toni Braxton followed Wayne Newton as the headline act at Las Vegas’ Flamingo Hotel and Casino, competed on Dancing with the Stars, and endured a variety of professional and personal setbacks. Braxton’s first album for Atlantic, Pulse was delayed over a year due to leaked material, which prompted the singer to record several new songs. None of the remaining collaborations with big-name artists made the cut, either. Even when low expectations are factored, Pulse is irrefutably satisfying. There’s a high level of conviction that does not waver, and it’s particularly impressive given that the album covers so many stages of a romantic relationship.

A couple ballads are sonically lukewarm and lyrically platitudinal, but even so, this is easily the singer’s best work since The Heat.

Braxton was soulful enough for R&B audiences, but smooth enough for adult contemporary; sophisticated enough for adults, but sultry enough for younger listeners; strong enough in the face of heartbreak to appeal to women, but ravishing enough to nab the fellas. Wielding such broad appeal, Braxton managed to score not one, but two...
