Juicy Booty girls love Chris Brown. I’m thinking that probably has more to do with his physical allure than his music. The Auto-Tuned singing voice is good enough, but he lacks talent when it comes to composing melodies for it. Bonus tracks included, there are 45 songs here; more than his last three albums combined; but you’ll have a hard time finding a single catchy chorus among them.
The first four bars of Future’s rap verse, looped with some dainty singing in the background, could’ve made High End a better song, but the bragfest is a modest highlight nonetheless. Most of the album, which covers a wider theme range than its restrictive title suggests, leaves nothing more than romantic vibes and contemporary soul beats to keep the aesthetic ship in orbit.
my rating = 3 of 5
