  1. Most of Mr. Brown suggests this crooner should stick to supporting roles. [6 Oct 2006, p.68]
  2. Despite the style oozing throughout "Mr. Brown," the album's main -- and consistent -- shortcoming is that there seems to be something missing, lyrically and musically.
  3. Even though his arrangements and slum-beautiful tracks are sublime, his vocal abilities leave much to be desired.
  4. As gorgeous as Sleepy’s voice can be, lyrically the album is lacking.

    [Brown] comes on like a lovable, if genetically engineered, soulman. [Oct 2006, p.95]
  6. 60
    A fairly conservative affair. [Nov 2006, p.101]
  7. 40
    There are soaring hooks aplenty, but there's little to fill the gaping holes in between. [Oct 2006, p.141]
