Deluxe edition includes four bonus tracks. 2011 album from the multi-platinum-selling R&B star. Brown, a triple-threat as a singer/dancer/actor, has co-written on the majority of F.A.M.E, and has collaborated with a wide range of his peers including: Justin Bieber, Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Ludacris and others. 'On this album, some of the songs are more grown-up', says Chris in describing the album. 'There are songs from all genres: from street records to others that are real Soul, 808 heavy that you'll hear in the club, and then others are strictly for the heart; songs that your mom and grandma can listen to and love'.

"Deuces," the popular single appearing from Brown's `Fan of a Fan Mixtape' (with MC Tyga), is a welcome opener with its superb production work and smart songwriting. The explicit side of Brown truly unveils itself with this effort, whether it be his transition to adulthood or sheer youthful rebelliousness. Tyga and Kevin McCall are both featured on this excellent opener, one of the album's valedictorian moments. "Up To You" is another gem, produced by the Underdogs and adhering to a solely urbanized sound. The songwriting is sincere, contrasting the colorful expletives featured on "Deuces" in favor of: I'm not gonna be the one to mess this up, Cause I've been left up in love before, I'm not be the one who take the back seat girl, We can take our time..." "No BS," featuring Kevin McCall, is another winner, again playing up Brown's newly found `adult' image.
"Look At Me Now" is certainly the album's oddity, finding Brown rapping alongside the hip-hop elite Busta Rhymes and Lil Wayne. Sure, Brown's rhymes actually work, but let's face it, his company, particularly motor mouth Rhymes clearly eclipse his rhymes with incredible agility. The production is genius with it's minimalist scope. "She Ain't You" samples Michael Jackson ("Human Nature") and SWV ("Right Here") to create another incredible, memorable cut. The songwriting suits Brown's `lover man' image. "Say It With Me" finds Brown tearing up a clubby-sounding Harmony "H Money" production. "Say It With Me" comes over as an updated Michael Jackson number. "Yeah 3x" contrasts "Say It With Me" in favor of the popular European-pop sound. It doesn't sound completely different from say the Black Eyed Peas's "I Gotta Feeling," but it works well and shows off Brown's incredible versatility.
"Next To You" features fellow heartthrob Justin Bieber on a solid duet; the chemistry between voices is a good match. "All Back" is the better cut, contrasting anything else on the album at this point. Here, Brown is supported by guitar and rhythmic drums. Vocally, he is `on point' by a mile! "Wet The Bed," featuring the ubiquitous Ludacris, is solid, but not the album's shining moment by any means. "Oh My Love" falls in the same boat, but features more driving, spastic production work by Harmony "H Money" Samuels. "Should've Kissed You" is pleasant while closer on the standard edition "Beautiful People" (featuring Benny Benassi) is a bit odd to say the least.
The deluxe edition of the album features a couple of extra cuts, though it is arguable whether they are truly `gems' or not. "Bomb," featuring Wiz Khalifa is a grade `B,' as is "Love the Girls" (featuring Game). "Paper, Scissors, Rock" is enjoyable, and features Big Sean & Timbaland. "Beg For It" is the best cut, ending the effort in the balladry that Brown seems so adept at.
Overall, F.A.M.E. is a fine effort. The front half of the album is the most effective, though there are no outright missteps. By all means, this effort eclipses the ill-suiting Graffiti, which is a huge step in the right direction for Brown. Fans should be pleased with Brown's fourth studio effort.
1. No BS-It sounds so relaxing
2. Wet the Bed- Sexy track with Ludacris...that's hot!
3. Next to You-Wonderful collab with Justin Bieber..they have great voice chemistry, they almost sound alike when they're singing, almost couldn't tell who was who lol...
4. All Back-it has that hard rock feel, it's different than what Chris usually does.
5. Up to You-this song takes me back...it definitely has that ol'skool 90's R&B feel
6. She Ain't You-Great tribute to Michael Jackson...it has the "Human Nature" melody...sounds great with up beat music and relaxing melody.
Overall I give F.A.M.E. a 4 out of 5.
The only thing that could redeem Brown's career is a super hit-after-hit cd.
