Barnes & Noble
R&B and pop diva Toni Braxton inaugurates her new deal with Blackground Records/Universal with her first studio album since 2002's More Than a Woman. Libra is led by the Scott Storch-produced first single "Please," and also includes the soulful slow jam "Midnite."
All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
Libra marks Toni Braxton's departure from Arista, her longtime label. It was a stormy relationship that ended with the fast death of 2002's fine More Than a Woman. Only one Neptunes-produced single was spun off from it, which peaked somewhere in the eighties of the Hot 100. Half a year after the album's release, Braxton was off Arista and on the ...

Libra marks Toni Braxton's departure from Arista, her longtime label. It was a stormy relationship that ended with the fast death of 2002's fine More Than a Woman. Only one Neptunes-produced single was spun off from it, which peaked somewhere in the eighties of the Hot 100. Half a year after the album's release, Braxton was off Arista and on the Universal-distributed Blackground, but Libra didn't surface until fall of 2005. Granted, Braxton's no stranger to protracted gaps in her release schedule. Libra offers no surprises. It's lean and balanced, just like all other Braxton albums, though too many songs are tepid and merely functional for background listening, so it winds up a safe distance from the likes of the self-titled debut and Secrets. "Take This Ring," produced by Rich Harrison, adds some unexpected rambunctiousness, yet it's about one-tenth as exciting as Amerie's like-sounding "1 Thing" also Harrison's work. Beyond the obvious single choices -- produced by big names like Scott Storch and Bryan-Michael Cox -- two songs handled by the Underdogs' Antonio Dixon "Sposed to Be" and "Finally" are as sublime and plush as any other pair in Braxton's catalog. Although this is her spottiest album to date, her fans shouldn't have any trouble appreciating it.

    Old School Toni Braxton.

    This is by far the best album I've heard all year. All the songs are amazing. That's the Way Love Works is my favorite track off of this album. Every song is different and amazing. My favorite song was not featured on this LP. Which made me dissapointed. Stupid, is by far, my favorite Toni Braxton song. I wish this was included on the US version.

    Almost perfect

    The jams are smoking...except for #4, too much of the house thing. Toni got back to the old school slow beats and again turned out another classic w/'face(track 6). All in all the whole album 10 tracks..only 4 is subpar...the house thingis bad, like when 'face mixed w/snoop dogg. C'mon do whatcha know. I wish there were more than 10 tracks.

    Ms. Braxton is Back!

    I can say this is the best album Toni has released recently. I was extremely disappointed with More Than A Woman but Libra puts her back on top! If you're a Toni Braxton fan then you'll definately love this CD

    Toni is my girl!!

    I have always loved Toni's music and this CD reminds me as to why. There are very few artist that I can say that I like/enjoy every track on their CD. Toni you have done it again (no surprise) and all I have to say is that they better give you your props. Thanks for the bomb CD.

    The Best Yet

    The first single "Please" was so great that I just had to write this review. Toni Braxton is one of my favourite artists. She is the best singers ever
