Whitney is amongst the rarest of recording artists who elegantly acquired a long career in the music industry solely based upon her natural talent to interpret lyrics and a melody line.
As opposed to her personal life wavering out of control in the public eye, she never once orchestrated artistic controversy to promote and hype her musical products.
There has never been any gimmicks surrounding Whitney - simply her vocals, the songs and her sheer artistry to deliver lyrical content.
It has been 22 years since Arista first released her second CD, "WHITNEY".
In 1987, a youthful Whitney was vocally ascending toward the top of her game as an artist.
It is now unfair of the public & physically impossible for the artist to accomplish the indistinguishable performance level she achieved in the past.
As a genuine belter, she no longer sustains the vocal dynamics and range she once effortlessly achieved yet she can still manipulate lyrics and transmit raw emotion to her public - one has to only run through "I LOOK TO YOU" to attest to this reality.
In 2009, one must audition & review Whitney's new release on the basis of the work presented upon the compilation.
The bulk of the material on "I LOOK TO YOU" is intentionally manoeuvred toward the past.
The production attempts to hopefully reconnect Whitney with her public.
Tracks have been commissioned to remain on safe ground and therefore sound non contemporary by the standards of current TOP 40 radio in 2009.Read more ›
Whitney Houston, at one time, possessed the most incomprehensibly astonishing voice in modern pop history. She could belt and trill and riff and run with such ease that it, at times, could seem otherworldly. Countless popstars would be influenced by her style, from Mariah Carey to Beyonce, to Alicia Keys, Jennifer Hudson, etc ad nauseum. She is a singular force in pop music when it comes to THAT VOICE.
What I always thought was her greatest strength, however, was not that she could hold a note for 20 seconds or skip up to her highest falsetto without the slightest effort. No, I have always believed that Whitney's greatest strength lied in her phrasing, her lyrical interpretation, her choices regarding when and how she would use that marvelous voice. She never delivered a vocal run simply for the sake of doing it - it was done with purpose; no doubt a trait she learned from her accomplished mother, Cissy, or from her god-mother, Aretha Franklin.
And so while I'm sure many reviews will note the dramatic change in Whitney's voice on this album - I'm not bothered at all. Sure, she may not hit the notes with the same ease as she did 20 years ago ... and sure, she sounds a bit rough 'round the edges at times. But her phrasing and interpretation are Classic Whitney, and the more-personal-than-ever-before lyrics let Whitney pour her heart and soul out.Read more ›
