Review Text Tamar Braxton's first album as an independent artist, following associations with Dreamworks and Epic, arrived with the singer's announcement that it would also be her final full-length. Bluebird of Happiness was presumably made with fewer creative restrictions, yet there's no indication that Braxton was stockpiling left-of-center ideas, as it's a straightforward set of mature commercial R&B. Rodney Jerkins, Troy Taylor, and Vincent Berry are among the collaborators who supply the kind of slick, sophisticated grooves and airy backdrops that have typified Braxton's major-label efforts. As with the likes of Love and War and Calling All Lovers, it's emotionally fraught more frequently than it is content, cresting with the two-timed belter "My Man" and wrenched finale "Empty Boxes." The best of the few throwbacks neatly twists Evelyn King's "Love Come Down." A trap-styled remake of "The Makings of You" is the only true misstep, though a few cuts are simply indistinct. ~ Andy Kellman
