  • Summary: The sophomore album from the R&B artist features guest appearances by Big Boi, the Game, Lil Wayne, and Kanye West.

  1. If there was ever a record created to turn a pop singer into a star, it's Brown's sophomore effort.
  2. Though Brown's sweet songs are set up to appeal to a young female fan base, the narratives are mature enough to sway some older folks.
  3. When he relaxes a bit, he discovers that his old approach--playful beats, flirty come-ons--works as well as it ever did.

    You've got to credit Brown and his songwriters and producers for cranking out another handful of easy to remember hits that cover the bases, from upbeat and carefree numbers to go-to mixtape ballads that push all the right target-demographic buttons.
  5. Sadly, Brown's adolescent voice and playful scatting--while cute--are steamrolled by pushy collaborators.
  6. Some of the innuendo ('Take You Down') is kind of hurting but the song 'Nice,' gangsta-fied by a Game appearance, is solid.
  7. There's still nothing very "exclusive" about Exclusive at all.

    I rate this album a 10 and if I could I would rate it higher than that because this is the only cd so far that I love every single song on the album. I listen to it everyday and I just wish I could be the girl he was talking about.. lol I just love it!!!! Expand

    I'm from the old skool and truly think that Chris Brown has proven that he is a "STAR". His album, although I bought it for my teen aged daughters listened to it and feel that this young man deserves a standing ovation. Keep doing what you are doing. People like me from the old skool appreciate some real music. Expand

    Another atempt to be ''cool'' and ''hip'' and ''popular'' and thats all this album gets him. It says nothing about his maturity as a man or an artist, the videos are like-wise very bland and the same ol same ol same ol crap. Expand
