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

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.

This CD was the second to last CD produced together with Clive Davis and it contains mostly all of the "hits" that we've heard throughout Houston's discography. Read morePublished 8 months ago by W. Ian Walker
The best song on the whole album is "My Love Is Your Love." I prefer her older songs, but this particular song has strong harmonies and she brings it alive. Read morePublished on Nov. 18 2012 by A.
