Arguably The Brand New Heavies’ best album, <I>Brother Sister</I> find them at their peak, artfully blending their early acid jazz experiments with equal parts funk and soul. With the vocals of N’Dea Davenport at their disposal, they were able to create crossover hits such as “Back to Love” and “Dream On Dreamer.” But they were equally adept at simply throwing out the jam on “Fake” or doing mellow downtempo on “Mind Trips.” There are few lackluster tracks as well, but those are more than compensated by the stellar title track. “Brother Sister” is an absolute gem, a meaningful and emotional track that means what it says and says what it means. It’s a powerful track and one that elevates this album high above the others.
