Album Remarks & Appraisals:
"He's concentrated on making great songs. F.A.M.E. boasts blockbuster hits and shows Brown has a good nose for production: On "Look at Me Now," he rocks with Busta Rhymes and Lil Wayne over a sci-fi Orientalist beat from Diplo and Afrojack. F.A.M.E. is a pop 'n' b album with something for everyone: bedroom ballads, dance-floor thumpers and even "Next 2 You," a puppy-love declaration with guest vocals by Justin Bieber."-Rolling Stone
Billboard (p.36) - "[H]e delivers an album full of emotional stories over a diverse mix of hip-hop, R&B, electro and dance beats."
