02. Discovering R&B from the 90s/00s
This felt very different from her debut album. Her vocals are so beautiful and you can tell she is giving a lot of her emotions out in the songs.

I felt like this album played a lot of different sounds like guitars in the song Learn the Hard Way or having sad songs like Have You Ever. Felt experimental but still felt like a 90s R&B album.

This does feel good follow-up.

Bem melhor que o debut. "The Boy Is Mine" é um clássico e todas as outras seguem a mesma linha de qualidade.
Yeah it’s a classic. this album is so fluid and flows so well from one track to the next it just got better and better. The layering of her vocals throughout is probably the best part because her voice is so impeccable that her doing the backing and lead vocals is just so magical. The lyrics here are not groundbreaking but the delivery is what makes it such a great listen.

This is my favourite Brandy album. I never really bought into the Afrodisiac hype and even Full Moon to an extent. I mean Put that on Everything, Truthfully,Tomorrow, Angel in Disguise, Learn the Hard Way I could go on. This was an improvement from her debut and a coming of age album for Brandy
When it came to her sophomore album, Brandy pulled out all the stops. With some of the best R&B tracks on this one album alone, Brandy came out to give the world a taste of her vocal stylings, featuring one of the most iconic songs of the late 90s, 'The Boy is Mine', Brandy rose to the top of the R&B world with this album, and has been unstoppable since. Personal favourite track: Put That on Everything.

Angel in Disguise - 10/10
The Boy is Mine - 9/10
Learn the Hard Way - 7.5/10
