Brandy: Full Moon (2002). The Legend of the "Vocal Bible" is Born

Brandy: Full Moon (2002). The Legend of the

B. Cox and Domo review Brandy's 2002 classic third album album Full Moon. After two wildly successful albums and taking a break after her second album which was followed by a nervous breakdown, a relationship breakup and before what was soon to be the birth of her daughter, the vocal prodigy was ready to get back in the saddle. Teaming back up with Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins yet again after their collaboration with her sophomore album Never Say Never, Brandy explored all of the themes that emerged in the shadow of that success; love, romance, heartbreak, trust and misfortune. The album featured a blend of ballad and slow tempo songs and upbeat and catchy songs.

With Darkchild's intuitive production, which fit her like a glove, and her exploration in amazing vocal arrangements and stacking, she emerged from this album with another platinum certification and a new nickname: "The Vocal Bible. The album has since been credited as a work that influenced many of her contemporaries and her successors as a watershed album for R&B in the new millenium.
