Reception[edit]

Professional ratings
Review scores
Source Rating
Allmusic 4.5/5 stars[2]

The Allmusic review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine awarded the album 4½ stars and stated "Brown Sugar marks a turning point for Freddie Roach: It's the moment he decided to get dirty, funky, and soulful. Previously, he had plenty of funk in his playing, but he was tasteful, at times a little bit too tasteful. On Brown Sugar, he simply burns".[2]
