Waiting to Exhale is the exception that proves the rule about mish-mash 1990s soundtrack albums. Even though it features 22 different female voices, the album boasts a rare continuity because Babyface wrote or co-wrote 15 of the songs and produced all 16. Moreover, the gifted R&B artist used every song to explore the film's theme of women trying to balance self-respect and romantic desire. Not only has Babyface (née Kenny Edmonds) created a fascinating song suite, he has produced one of the best middle-of-the-road-pop, adult-contemporary albums of the decade. Mary J. Blige stakes out a claim as the new diva on the block with an astonishing performance on "Not Gon' Cry". Babyface's music and lyrics suggest a woman barely holding back a swelling flood of anger and heartache, and Blige's brilliant vocal captures both the agitation and the restraint. --Geoffrey Himes

1. Babyface wrote and produced the entire album, and from his history that instantly makes it worth listening to.
2. Mary J. Blige, SWV, Brandy, Chaka Khan, Whitney Houston, Cece Winans, TLC, Toni Braxton, Aretha Franklin, Faith Evans all sing on this album. Can You possibly go wrong?
3. Brandy - Sittin Up In My Room is my favorite midtempo track of all time
4. The soundtrack stands alone. In fact I have never seen the movie but own the soundtrack. Usually you buy the soundtrack and then see the movie or vice versa...not so with this one. The songs perfectly tell the story of the movie judging from the reviews of the movie. Every song has a definite theme and feel.
5. The soundtrack is soothing and relaxing but not sleep inducing. Some cd's have a laid back feel but sometimes make you sleepy...that's not evident here though.
Waiting To Exhale - One of the Great Soundtracks of the 90's, right up there with Above The Rim and Murder Was The Case. An Essential album.
One has to give it up to Babyface(song writing "King")for producing such an ear pleasing suite of music which actually tied right into the movie(not something you really see nowadays). So, thank you, Babyface...
AND THANK YOU DIVAS!!!!!!!! The vocals are like butter!
"Exhale (Shoop, Shoop)"- Whitney, this little diddy will go down in history as being my favorite song of all time! Thanks for the almost 20 minute version at your concert in Washington, D.C.
"Why Does It Hurt So Bad"- I don't know, but Whitney put so much emotion in this song even I felt the pain!! It "Hurt SO GOOD!"
"Let It Flow"- A song only Toni could do!
"It Hurts Like Hell"- Tell 'em 'bout it Aretha!
"Sittin Up In My Room"- I could go on all day about this song! All I have to say is it came out my senior year of high school and I used to imagine she was talking about me!!! Truly one of Brandy's best. She is an awesome talent with a wonderful attitude to boot!!
"This Is How It Works"- TLC is just funky! Love Them!
"Not Gon' Cry"- Mary was doin' some thangs with this one! Definitely made her a major player on the music scene!
"My Funny Valentine"- Give it to 'em Chaka! Don't hurt nobody!!
"And I Gave My Heart to You"- One of the best songs on the cd.Read more ›
