Product Description

Review

Ballad queen Houston has diversified her sound in order to cut across all genres. -- USA Today

Amazon.ca

Rumours of a greatest hits package had been flying, but as millions of converts held their breath, Whitney Houston headed into the studio only to emerge--amid a flurry of drama screaming "diva" (a live Web broadcast of the international press conference revealing the album, and a veil of secrecy shrouding the new material)--with her first non-soundtrack album in eight years. So is it worth all the hype and hoopla? Probably. There are no real surprises (typical ballads such as "You'll Never Stand Alone", obligatory writer-producer-singer cameos from Babyface, Wyclef Jean, Missy Elliott, Faith Evans and Kelly Price--this time in a worthy attempt to slot into the late-1990s soul scene), but she does try to defend her marriage on the Elliott-produced "In My Business". Elliott's other effort, the slow-burning "Oh Yes", is a high point, but the hands-down driving force of this record is the multi-platinum, multi-octave power pairing of Houston with Mariah Carey on "When You Believe". --Rebecca Wallwork

This album is definitely not the big success that Whitney's diehard fanbase would like to believe. It failed to make the top 10 of Billboard and while it did manage to gain many moderately successful singles, nothing here can hide the fact that Whitney Houston's glory days are over.
Much of that is caused by a poor choice of material. Whitney selected a bunch of midtempo songs that neither entice nor excite the listener. Her attempt at tackling a big ballad, "I learned from the best", fails because of poor production values (whoever picked that dated keyboard sound really needs to be fired). Houston's vocals are also desperately below par; she is no longer the expressive vocalist that she once was.
Still, the album's biggest fault lies in its pretention that Whitney Houston is a contemporary R&B artist. Houston was an exceptionnally gifted, soulful pop vocalist who could infuse the most generic songs with palpable emotion, and invest them as if her life depended on it. It wasn't just a question of belting notes or holding them forever - she had feeling just as much as she mastered the singing techniques. Nowadays, she's just a lazy vocalist relying on special guests, background singers and production tricks. She has been losing steadily her audience by pretending that she's an R&B artist, but the scary truth is that she's not convincing at all in that area.
"My love is your love" does have a few bright spot - the title track is one of these songs that slowly grow on you, and "Until you come back to me" is one of her most convincing ballads in ages. The rest is just forgettable and mildly enjoyable filler. Buy her "Greatest Hits" package instead - you'll get the singles from this album, but you will spare yourself the rest of this pathetic attempt at sucking up to the R&B community.

I wasn't a fan of her first two albums, but I Really think "I'm Your Baby Tonight" was her best album. The title track is kind of weak lyrically. I know Wyclef Jean has written better songs. The DarkChild songs on here are basically rehashes of other hits ("If I Told You That" is the equivelant of "If you had my love"). "I Learned From The Best" sounds almost exactly like "Too Gone Too Long" by En Vogue. The tracks produced by Missy Elliot aren't worth writing home about either ("Things You Say" from " Just Whitney" is a LOT better than the ones here). There ARE highlights however, such as the duet with Mariah Carey from "The Prince of Egypt" "When You Believe." I also enjoy the Babyface written/produced "Until You Come Back" as well as "I Bow Out" and the concluding "I Was Made To Love Him." Otherwise this album falls flat of b een-there-done-that throaway tracks from other albums. There are the highlights as I said earlier but overall I'd say "I'm Your B aby Tonight" and "Just Whitney" are her best albums hands down! It just didn't seem like she tried too hard on this and let Clive Davis do all the work. Not reccomended.

I liked this album from Whitney Houston when it came out! And still love it today! And I like how the marimba/xylophone sounding It's Not Right weaves into Heartbreak Hotel's edgy techno-beat rhythms! The Rodney Jerkins-produced songs gave people like Babyface, Soulshock/Karlin, Missy Elliott, Wyclef Jean and David Foster some stiff competition! If I Told You That sounds like Brandy and Monica's "The Boy Is Mine", but this is very much a Whitney song. four of them were solid for Whitney. For once, this was what Whitney needed to get her out of the pattern of big, bombastic ballads from soundtracks of which she's so good at. And she had to compete with what Celine Dion was doing with the same pattern. The more edgier, chance-taking R&B songs were what she needed on here to stay ahead and she succeeded! The title song is cool. I also liked the reflective ballad, "Oh Yes." I liked "I Learned From the Best" since it continues her trademark power ballad pattern. A favorite I like on here is "I Bow Out." One of her better songs and the song just matches her singing so very well. This album sold very strongly in '98-'99 and it's still one of her many crowning moments!

This was Whitney Houston's first album in 8 years. She did a lot of movie and soundtrack work in the 90s, most notably THE BODYGUARD, but this was her official follow up to 1990s IM YOUR BABY TONIGHT. I believe this is her strongest effort to date. There isn't a weak track in the bunch. Whitney worked with a lot of contemporary producers at the time, like Missy Elliott, Wyclef Jean, Lauryn Hill, Rodney Jerkins, and more. The album opens with the anthem "It's Not Right But It's Ok". The album version is good, but the remix is even better. "Heartbreak Hotel" is a showstopping performance by Whitney, Faith Evans and Kelly Price. The title track is the song that Wyclef Jean produced. "When You Believe" is a nice duet with Mariah Carey, they compliment each other well. These 4 songs were singles from the album in the US, and the Diane Warren penned "I Learned From The Best" was also a single. I like the Missy produced tracks, "In My Business" and "Oh Yes", the latter being a perfect piece of soul. There's some good uptempo R&B on songs like "If I Told You That", "I Bow Out" and "Get it Back". She collaborates with Lauryn Hill on the hidden track "I Was Made To Love Him", which is nice. One of my favorites is the inspiring ballad "You'll Never Stand Alone". Overall this is a top grade effort from Mrs. Bobby Brown, worth repeated listens.
