    The music carries a convincing bad-guy energy that’s all the more potent for its sweet, often luscious textures. Its recklessness travels in a clear direction.

    Where “Sleep” excels as a quality addition to his catalog’s stellar collection of panty-dropping and baby-making songs (see: “Take You Down,” “No BS”), others fall and lean towards prosaic.

    While showing progression here, Chris Brown still is quite far from being the best man and artist that he can be. On Royalty, Chris Brown shows what happens when Peter Pan tries to grow up, but loves turning up in the club even more.

    The majority of what follows is a qualitative step back from previous solo album X.

    Royalty is many things all at once though much of it is not particularly good.

It shows much musical growth, and the video's show his ability if story telling, while putting the songs that having accompanying videos in nonlinear order makes the album more intriguing. It is not as cohesive as X, but more throwback and interesting when it comes to not only the music and videos, but the dedication of the album to his daughter, Royalty Brown. 9/10=A- Expand
