Album Review

You'd think seven years — turbulent years that involved a bout with near-total deafness and in-public temper issues that led to some time behind bars — would allow Foxy Brown more than enough time and experiences to make Brooklyn's Don Diva anything but a reheated version of 2001's Broken Silence, but that is what it most resembles, as opposed to a bold step forward or a reclamation of her power. A couple tracks and a few stray lines aside, these verses could have been dashed off by the MC at just about any earlier point in her career — a shame since the hypnotizing likes of "Too Real," featuring snaking and skanking production from Statik Selektah (and a verse from AZ), and "Star Cry" hint at how potent the album could've been, given the soul-searching tension between anger, sadness, and swaggering combativeness. During the latter, she temporarily rejects her possessions and fame, fights back tears through "I'm just like y'all, but I probably hurt more/After 13 years I feel I deserve more." But these moments are few and far between, moderately satisfying only for those who have been eager to get their hands on a new Foxy Brown album since the 2005 single "Come Fly with Me" (unfortunately not included here). Retraced steps, backed by an assembly line of knockoff production work, are the rule. [A clean version of the album was also released.]

Customer Reviews

GREAT ALBUM!!!!

Im excited that she finally released this album, and WHEN THE LIGHTS GO OUT is FYAH!!! I guess she'll be releasing Mr. Dj with the famed Barrington Levy on Black Roses, but LOVE THIS ALBUM!!! The first track, Don Diva, opens the album really good, and I like it a lot!!! Star Cry, We're on Fire (with Movado), The Quan are some of my favorites right now. But WHEN THE LIGHTS GO OUT is the best so far, and I hope she releases a summer vid with this first....it will be top 10 no doubt ^_^

NOT DISAPPOINTED BUT NOT IMPRESSED

I love FOXY, been a FAN since I heard "Ain't No Ni**a" but this album was rushed, you can tell and hear with just the repeated verses, I know FOXY didn't have much control over this CD but I feel like there could have been more effort for the FANS on her part, not even a RE-RELEASE? DAMN

I WAS KINDA USPET AT THE ALBUM! SHE HYPED IT UP TO MUCH FOR NOTHIN!

IT WASNT THAT BAD, BUT IT AINT THAT GOOD! I RECOMMEND ONLY BUYING A FEW TRACKS: WHEN THE LIGHTS GO OUT, NEVER HEARD THIS BEFORE, TOO REAL, STAR CRY, & THE QUAN! OTHER THAN THAT IT WAS WACK! AND SHE DIDNT PUT THE SONG SHE HAD WITH T.I. ON HERE OR THE "MR. DJ" ONE! AND THE SONG "WHY" IS FROM HER OLD UNRELEASED ALBUM "ILL NA NA 2: THE FEVER"! FOXY COME BETTA THAN THIS! BUT SHE SAID SHE'S GONNA RELEASE BLACK ROSES AND RE-RELEASE THIS ALBUM WITH 5 NEW TRACKS SO IT BETTA BE GOOD!
