Product Description

Amazon.ca

At the time of its release, this was the watershed for soundtracks, selling a kazillion copies. It documents Whitney Houston's character in the Kevin Costner movie, which required Houston to play only herself (although one hopes she wouldn't end up with someone as smarmy as Costner). The album is as much a testament to the production of Babyface who, through the mid-1990s, actually was the mainstream of contemporary hit music. Houston's singing is much better than her acting, and almost every song enjoyed a long tenure at the top of all the charts. Along with "I Will Always Love You" and five other Houston songs, the soundtrack also features Lisa Stansfield, Kenny G with Aaron Neville, and Joe Cocker with Sass Jordan. --Scott Wilson

By Dr. Joseph Lee #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Whitney Houston has suddenly passed away at the tender age of 48. She has led a tumultuous life, with drug abuse, resulting in the ultimate sacrifice: the loss of her golden voice and her life. According to Tommy Mottola, the boss at Sony, he rightly said that Whitney Houston's voice at the beginning of her career was considered the golden standard, to be imitated by other singers that follow.

To truly appreciate the raw talent of Whitney, a greatest hits album is simply not enough. She has 19 charted albums on Billboard 200 Album Chart. The Bodyguard is the best selling album of Whitney Houston with 20 million sold, and it stayed at Number 1 at Billboard Top 200 Album Chart for 20 weeks. It also won the Grammy for Album Of The Year.

The best song from this album is of course the very beautiful I Will Always Love You. I will never get tired of listening to this song. Her rendition truly showed off her golden voice, with so many different levels of octaves that she could effortlessly soar up into the sky above. Simply magnificent and majestic!

The song listing is already listed in the website. So I am not going to repeat here. But there are actually two versions of this soundtrack: one the standard soundtrack with 12 songs, the one you are reading, and a second one, called Special Commemorative Edition, with 3 bonus tracks: Waiting For You by Kenny G, I'm Every Woman (Clivilles & Cole House Mix I) and Queen Of The Night (CJ's Master Mix), both by Whitney Houston, plus a special picture calendar for 1994, with 12 beautiful pictures of Whitney. This deluxe edition is a collector's item now, not readily available. But if you see it, get it.

The Bodyguard represents the pinnacle in Whitney's career, when her stars shine the brightest.

By Vader
Format:Audio CD
You can't forget the love theme from the movie, The Bodyguard. I Will Always Love You emerged in 1992 with 14 weeks at No. 1. and for four years it was the longest #1 single on the Hot 100 singles chart until One Sweet Day with Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men and We Belong Together also from Mariah Carey in 2005. Run To You, I Have Nothing and I'm Every Woman were huge hits for this diva- whose popularity took a dive after the Bodyguard soundtrack and her last two albums failed to generate any interest. Well, Whitney Houston will be remembered for this awesome soundtrack and this soundtrack produced one of the greatest songs of all time. I Will Always Love You is one of the best love songs of all-time and this album is a must-have for every Whitney Houston fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars The true DIVA soundtrack album for Whitney! June 15 2004
Format:Audio CD
All of the six songs that Whitney Houston sang for "The Bodyguard" soundtrack show her as a true diva taking control! Every time I hear "I Will Always Love You", I get chills! It is so perfectly done, so beautiful, and you can't be moving around, because Whitney's taking center stage and running the show when she sings it! The other songs are just as good, such as "I Have Nothing", "I'm Every Woman", "Jesus Loves Me", "Run to You" and her no-nonsense dance number "Queen of the Night."
The other album's half is okay, typical soundtrack stuff, but I love SOUL SYSTEM's rapped-sung "Lovely Day" and Lisa Stansfield's "Someday I'm Coming Back." The Kenny G song and the theme from the Bodyguard are also good. But the true album's standout is Whitney! I can see now why it's sold over 24 million albums or so to date! A diva at her highest level!

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 For Whitney April 18 2004
Format:Audio CD
Whitney really delivers on this album. I love it. She sings I will always love you. A true hit. She also sings Im Everey Woman a remake of Chaka Khans origianal song. And my favorite song she sings here. Run To You. Where she hits a High E over Middle C a difficult note to sing. I love this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Diva in her prime Sept. 11 2003
Format:Audio CD
"The bodyguard" probably shows Ms Houston in the pinnacle of her career. Her vocals have finally matured and sound better then ever. The powerhouse megahit "I Will Always Love You" originally written/sung by Dolly Parton spent over 14 weeks at the number one chart, making it one of the longest number one hits on the charts. David Foster is the primary producer of her radio hits, doing his best and succeeds at imitating "Babyface"'s work. The highlights are obviously Whitney's hits, such as the soulful "Run To You" and "I Have Nothing." I also enjoy the down-right FUNKY remake of Chaka Kahn's "I'm Every Woman" as well as the sassy powerhouse hit "Queen of the Night." The second half of the album features such artists as famed Saxophonist Kenny G, soul legend Aaron Neville and her mother Cissy Houston. "The Bodyguard" shows Whitney's voice at her best, and the Gospel track "Jesus Loves Me" prooves that as well. I really reccomend this soundtrack to anyone who enjoyed the radio hits and is clammoring for more Whitney!
