Album Review

Not too many R&B artists experience a 13-year gap between debuting and releasing a second album, but here's Tamar Braxton, now known to a younger generation due to her presence on reality television series Braxton Family Values and talk show The Real. Dramatic, spacious ballad "Love and War," released in late 2012, kicked her music career backed into gear and put her in the Top 15 of Billboard's R&B chart. Second single "The One," the umpteenth track to sample Mtume's "Juicy Fruit," signaled that Braxton was up to compete with contemporary singers who emerged during the middle and late 2000s. Indeed, Love and War plays out like it's designed to contend with the likes of Ciara, Rihanna, Trey Songz, and maybe even Keyshia Cole, rather than those who came up around the same time as Braxton. Slower, more atmospheric productions like "Stay and Fight," "All the Way Home," and "Sound of Love" suit her the best and display her considerable skill — by now, given some of the artists who have come and gone since 2000, she should have at least four albums in her past. The lighthearted numbers — like the Keri Hilson castoff-level "Tip Toe," the mind-numbing "Hot Sugar," and the Mike Will knockoff strip-club track "She Did That" — are no match for the fully formed songs that seem rooted in Braxton's life experiences.

She did that!

Love the entire new album! Love Ms. Tamar! We supporting all the way from Japan. Yes SHE did that!!!

SHE did it.

I have been waiting for this day for months now ever since I started following her family's reality show on WEtv (yeah, I was a little late on that.) After hearing her on the show and hearing her single Love and War I was like wow, THAT VOICE! I've listened to the album about three times now and I'm already finding my favorites and my not-so-favorites. She really shines on Love and War, All The Way Home, Prettiest Girl, White Candle, and Thank You Lord. Not every song is a hit. I think some of the other ones should've been dropped and replaced with something better. Regardless of some filler tracks, I feel this album is a wonderful sophomore album and her voice truly is the secret weapon. I'm sure my opinion will only change for the better after I listen to it a few more times. I know she will go far in her solo music career because of that VOICE. Oh and one more thing…Dingaling of Gold should've been on this album! (couldn't help myself)

YAAASSSS

I just got my everlasting LIFE listening to the snippets of "Where it Hurts" & " Sound of love"! the WHOLE album sounds amazing as if EVERY song could be a single! #shewon #tamartian #shedidthat
