We gave it a B+

There’s a good reason Brandy’s most recent single — the frenetic ”Put It Down,” featuring Chris Brown — only hit No. 76 on the Billboard Hot 100: It’s one of the weakest offerings from an otherwise well-crafted for-the-fans album. Ignore what’s pushed to pop radio. Brandy scores when her raspy-sweet voice soars during ballads and slow jams, and that’s what stands out on this intimate, often ethereal collection, Two Eleven, which sputters only when she fires up the vocoder. B+
