Album Review: Mr. Brown by Sleepy Brown

Fairly Good, Based on 1 Critic

AllMusic - 60
Based on rating 6/10

Singer, keyboardist, and producer Sleepy Brown has had many outlets throughout the past 15 years. One-third of the long-running and accomplished Organized Noize production crew (OutKast, Goodie Mob, TLC), he has been central to a number of short-lived and one-off projects -- including Society of Soul, Sleepy's Theme, and Dungeon Family -- and became more visible than ever when OutKast's "The Way You Move," featuring his hypnotizing voice on the hook, escalated to the top of just about every singles chart in 2004. However, he has run into some walls when attempting to go on his own: a solo album for DreamWorks was shelved during a shake-up with Interscope, and even if it had been released on time, it would've seemed a couple years late.
