  1. "Afrodisiac" is Brandy’s most personally revealing album to date and her least lyrically fluffy, but its intimacy is hamstrung by the MTV-flavoured, formulaic gloop with which most contemporary, American R&B now seems to be contaminated.

    Feels like an episode of her growing-pains TV show Moesha. [Aug 2004, p.130]
  3. What gives Afrodisiac its allure are the confident club jams that mask B-Rocka’s vocal limitations without overpowering her.
  4. Analbum that flirts with the mundane just enough to tease out moments of brilliance.
  5. Paint-by-number grooves, coupled with nonexistent hooks and forgettable melodies, do not result in an album that requires repeated plays; that is unfortunate, since a few Timbaland-produced tracks demand just that.
