  • Summary: This is the third album for the now-23-year-old singer (and former Cinderella). Rodney Jerkins handles most of the production chores on this 17-track disc.

  1. Her deep, warm voice now has a scratchy, evocative edge that suggests maturity and the high price that often comes with it.
  2. Brandy gets an A+ for effort, even if Full Moon falls slightly short of that grade.
  3. 70
    A work that displays more forward-thinking musical maturity than any diva in her league. May 2002, p.72]
  4. 60
    A throbbing pop record of schizophrenic highs and lows as hyper-kinetic as its beats.
  5. A fairly paint-by-numbers affair.
  6. Frantic, faceless, fake-sexy R&B.
  7. Brandy is on fine form throughout, purring pillow talk and murmuring sweet nothings to anyone insane enough to listen. Now she loves him, now she doesn't. Really, it's too much.

    This is old of Brandy's best albums to date. It's very creative! I love that about Brandy. She always pushes herself to do different things with her music and voice. This is my favorite Brandy album! Expand

    One of the very best R'n'B albums to date, Brandy is the best vocalist/entertainer of the naughties. No album fillers, you can tell Brandy and her team put real genuine effort into each track. Expand

    I think the CD is awesome, from start to finish. I think she's a bit ahead of her time with some of the beats, so people who are not used to change might find it hard to handle. I love the way she shovles her brother in all of HER work, what love. She's dynamic,edgy,groovy,and those vocals on He IS are to die for. Luv it nuff said.. Expand

    Full Moon is definitely the best Brandy album. I can't understand why some people say there is a lot of slow material. The only low-tempo material is: WHEN YOU TOUCH ME, LIKE THIS, HE IS, COME A LITTLE CLOSE, AND LOVE WOULDN'T COUNT ME OUT. WHEN YOU TOUCH ME, COME A LITTLE CLOSE, and LOVE WOULDN'T COUNT ME OUT are excellent, and I can listen to LOVE WOULDN'T COUNT ME OUT forever, it in my opinion, is the best song on the whole c.d. I love the up-tempo stuff too. The only thing I don't appreciate on this album is that there are pro-tools used on this album, but only on the up-tempos, the ballads however aren't pro-tooled, which is really good because that is when she really has to show her vocals. My favorite up-tempos are All in Me (I especially like how she raps at the end), It's Not Worth It, What About Us?, and the mid tempos Wow and Full Moon. Expand

    Yea, Brandy's cd is excellent, the soft key Ballads truly eximplify her strong voice. For more info visit http://www.brandyconnection.com

    It could have been better if the remake of I Die Without You wouldn't be included, but in closure, she's definitely showcasing her womanhood on this record. Expand
