Product Description

Product Description

UK reissue of the R&B/Soul/Pop diva's fifth album, originally released in 2002. Includes one bonus track, Whatchulookinat? (P. Diddy Remix).Just Whitney was yet another hit album for Houston, entering the Billboard Top 10 and going platinum in no time at all. It was also her last non-Holiday studio album for seven years. Sony/BMG.


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. This deluxe package includes a DVD featuring the "Whatchulookinat" and "Mega Mix" videos along with behind-the-scenes footage. --Jaan Uhelszki --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This is one singer who is truly full of it (ie, herself). She clearly has all the arrogance, vanity and attitude required to be a "diva".When she first burst on the scene, it was obvious she had a good voice with impressive high notes. But those low notes! Sometimes I could've sworn it was a man singing. For a time there, rumor had it she was constantly hoarse, was having trouble performing, and was in need of a break to recover. Now we know the true reason for her vocal decline, "drugs"! I am not really sure why this chick profess to be a Christian, loving Jesus. I did read in the Bible where Jesus said, "If you love me, you'll obey my commandments". What is Whitney's track record
on this? I really liked Whitney's singing before, but post Body Guard soundtrack, I was not too interest. I was really looking forward to the remake song of You Light Up My Life. I had a listen to it the other day and was shocked!! Debbie Boone does better justice on this number. And no, Whitney is not the singer of the century, Barbra Streisand still holds that title at 60 years old, with still an impeccable voice. Drug free.

Whitney showed us how it was done in the late 90s with her MY LOVE IS YOUR LOVE effort that has been certified at sales of 4 million with four hit singles. This was Whitney at her most hip-hop level. Over 4 years later and close to 40, Whitney has mellowed out comparatively. There really is not as much of the Hip-Hop as before and that which is here is much more mature than before. The disc is pretty good with the exception of the closer- WHATCHULOOKINAT and its shortness in length. It is less than 40 minutes long.
ONE OF THOSE DAYS- First single off the disc which probably would have worked better in the spring/summer. This song is laidback, chillin Whitney. It is heavily R&B and has/had hit all over it. Nice song. A-
TELL ME NO- This rebellious-natured song has Whitney threatening anyone to tell her no. The song is somewhere between mid and slow-tempo and it has an energetic feel to it as a whole. A-
THINGS YOU SAY- This jam was produced by none other than Missy and it is Whitney at her most soulful on the disc. The song has this weirdly attracting quality to it that just takes it to the next level. Plus, Whitney's vocals add a certain dimension that neededly enhance the cut. A
MY LOVE- Taken that her previous studio CD was entitled My Love, I thought it was weird that she would have a song that contained any hint of that CD here. Nonetheless, this midtempo, energetic piece with husband Bobby Brown is a decent song. I was expecting something cheesy but they both work together well and it is pleasing for the most part. A-
LOVE THAT MAN- The preceding songs were all slow to midtempo but Whitney lets loose here on this uptempo jam that is reminiscent of her earlier work. This is one of the most classic Whitney songs on the disc.

I bought 'Just Whitney' not knowing what to expect. It was a good price at Target and a friend had told me that he was very impressed so I took a chance. Let me just say right of the bat that despite any personal problems, the diva can still sANG and that she does! Even though the album only has 10 tracks they are all enjoyable and I can truly say that thisis one of the few albums in a long time that I can listen to from top to bottom. She did a great job on 'One of these days'. I was happy to see that even though they used the Isley Brother's sample of 'Bwtween the Sheets', it wasn't in my face and the horns are sweet. 'On My Own' has to be one of the best ballads from Whitney in a long time and shows why she is a great singer! The key changes and belts are unrivaled and the lyrics are really inspirational. 'You Light up my life' for a corny song has never sounded better in the hands of Ms. Houston.She takes it to church on this one. No lie, the hairs on my back stood up. No one at this point can touch her and i'm not a huge fan. 'Unashamed' is also one of my favorites. I feel her when she sings, 'i live my life without regrets, what you see,w hat you see, what you see is what you get, Unashaaaaammmmmmmmmmed'. this is for all the people who were made to doubt themselves. Another inspirational song. 'Dear John Letter' is my jam. This song bounces, twists and she just rips it up at the end. Overall, I give this letter an A and if people would put aside her personal life and listen to themusic, they won't be disappointed. I like this album so much, I'm going back to pick up a few more of gifts.

I listened to this CD disregarding all the hype about Whitney Houston's personal life so I could give an unbiased review. Actually JUST WHITNEY is not a bad CD...but just not the stellar material that you come to expect from her. Plus her vocals seem to be lacking a lot of the passion and fire that was so prevalent on her previous recordings. There were a few songs on this CD that I really enjoyed, such as Whitney's current single, "One Of Those Days" (which cleverly samples the Isley Brothers' '80s classic "Between the Sheets"), "Tell Me No" and the Missy Elliott-produced "Things You Say" which has a nice neo-soul feel to it. Those are the first three tracks, but after that it starts to go downhill. Most of the remaining material is dull and completely interchangeable with any other mediocre R&B/pop artist out there today: a uninspiring remake of Debby Boone's '70s hit "You Light Up My Life", "My Love", a duet with Bobby Brown, Whitney's hubby, "Dear John Letter", "Love That Man" and the equivalent to Michael Jackson's 1988 hit "Leave Me Alone" that attacks the media, the silly "Whatchulookinat."
The only hint of the old Whitney is present in the Babyface-penned ballad "Try It On My Own", but even that is missing that certain something that her past works possessed.
Clocking in at about 40 minutes, JUST WHITNEY is not her best work, but it's certainly not the worst I've ever heard, either. I am still a fan of hers but it seemed to me that she was not quite 100% vocally when she recorded this. Whitney die-hards will undoubtedly enjoy this CD, but everyone else might want to hear it first before deciding to buy it.
