Product Description

Amazon.ca

Whitney Houston recaptures some former glory on her first studio album, thanks to her undiminished vocal prowess and a cadre of impressive producers that includes Kevin "She'kspere" Briggs, Babyface, Teddy Bishop, and Troy Taylor. Houston's pipes shine in the big break-up ballad "On My Own," which is cut from the same mold as 1993's massive "I Will Always Love You." But while her vocal chords are intact, some of the material here leaves much to be desired, including a flat version of Debby Boone's "You Light Up My Light" and the Missy Elliot-penned and -produced "Things You Say." On the plus side, the feisty "Tell Her No" finds Houston on defense, but she's much more interesting with her back against the wall as she huffs: "I can't wait for the day I can rub things in your face." The embattled diva doesn't attempt to gloss over her foibles, as evidenced by "Unashamed" ("Listen here and listen good/ I'm unashamed of the life that I lead, unashamed of the strength of my need"), "Love That Man," and "Whatchulookinat," a body slam at the tabloids that have documented Houston and hubby Bobby Brown's very public falls from grace. Houston may not have recovered her hegemony of the charts, but this album proves she's once again pointed in the right direction. --Jaan Uhelszki

1.0 out of 5 stars When bad things happen to great singers July 12 2005
By Louis TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This album is a typical example of bad things happening to a great singer. For the better part of the last decade, Whitney Houston apparently decided that she was a contemporary R&B singer and not a pop artist, turning her back on the musical stylings that attracted legions of fans to her enormous vocal talents in the mid-80s. Audiences have repeatedly refused to buy that scheme, which resulted in decreasing album sales and radio airplay. Unfortunately, neither Whitney nor her team seem to have gotten the message yet, since this last album falls into the same trap.
Not that "Just Whitney" is a total disaster - the production is professional and slick, it's short and to-the-point, and it has a couple of okay songs. The main problem is that "Just Whitney" is a very boring album loaded with third-rate material that sounds like leftovers from a Mary J Blige recording session (and given the poor quality of Ms Blige's material, that's saying a lot) as performed by a singer who has become a shadow of her former self. Whitney manages to get the right attitude on the first two songs and then falls asleep on the job for the rest of the album - just like the listener. She desperately attempts to recapture some of her magic with heavy ballads like "Try it on my own" and "You light up my life"; however this singer is not the gifted powerhouse that lit up such otherwise generic songs as "Didn't we almost have it all", "You're still my man", "You give good love" or "All at once", and the results are not as convincing.

3.0 out of 5 stars 'Just' Is Just OK' July 19 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Once in her life, Whitney Houston was able to sing songs like "I'm Every Woman" without skipping a beat. The notes that are supposed to be the big ones on "Just Whitney" last about 5 seconds, and while the songs are good, Whitney could do better. "Unashamed" is one of the best on the CD, and the most underrated. Despite the title, "Whatchulookinat" is a good song. "One of Those Days" was the first single off "Just Whitney" and OK. "Love That Man" and "Dear John Letter" are good, with catchy bass loops. Bottom Line: Ain't Her Best, But Ain't Bad.

I liked Just Whitney. It does have that Atlanta feel to it on most of the songs, versus her native New Jersey feel of her past albums. There's no denying she has a beautiful voice. I like the album's simplicity, keeping it to 10 songs without too much padded stuff that plagues some artists' albums. I stil like One of These Days, Things You Say, My Love (with Bobby Brown), Dear John Letter, the Whatchulookinat, the dramatic Unashamed and others. I like that she went with different producers like Missy Elliott, Kevin Briggs, Troy Taylor and some others for this album, a break from the David Foster/Diane Warren overkill of her previous ones. I think that she put the album at the wrong time, what with Nelly, Eminem, Avril Lavigne and others still dominating the chart. She pushed the album back 3 times, but it was smart she did because it came out right. I hope that the next album will do well and get more people back to hearing Whitney again. This album was overlooked and ignored too much!

5.0 out of 5 stars Whitney Is Back and Better Than Ever June 7 2004
Format:Audio CD
Whitney Houston returned to the studio in 2002 to record this, her first all new album since my love is your love in 1998. This comeback of sorts proves once and for all that Whitney "still got it". Although she had endured a lot of negitive press, she still makes a vocally solid album.
