The anthemic "Step By Step", the elegant, jazz-tinged "I Learned From The Best" and the searing "Queen Of The Night" are all missing, their places taken by the grandstanding ballads that made Houston a superstar.
Over the years, these have tended to fall into two categories: the schlocky love songs that are as sweet and gooey ("Saving All My Love For You", "I Have Nothing", "Run To You"), and the inane self-empowerment anthems that have recently become "Am Idol" audition staples ("One Moment In Time", "Greatest Love Of All").
Too often, these saccharine songs are a waste of Houston's rich, powerful, opulent voice. Worse still, ballad-mode Houston has a tendency to scorch when she should be simmering: the way she smothers "I Will Always Love You" with melismatic vocal showboating is cold, crass and, ultimately, the very antithesis of soul.
Houston's floor-fillers have aged a little more gracefully, although their clunky, thudding drum sounds tend to be irreversibly eighties. Nevertheless, "I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)" remains buoyant and unshakable; "So Emotional" houses one of Houston's most persuasive vocal performances.
However, Houston only truly justifies her superstar status on two tunes from 1998's "My Love Is Your Love" collection, a largely successful attempt at reinventing the increasingly fusty belter for a contemporary audience. Playing the wronged woman over Rodney Jerkins' percolating R&B rhythms on "It's Not Right But It's Okay", she sounds spectacular, while Wyclef Jean's tender, romantic "My Love Is Your Love" manages to humanise an artist who's often seemed like a robotic octave-conquering machine.
If today's hitmakers can pull off the same trick - rumour has it Houston's currently sharing studio space with Ne-Yo, will.i.am and Akon - that dazzling voice could still realise its true potential.

Too much talent …. sad about her life But passionate songsPublished 10 months ago by Monika E. Schloder
Very good CD. Contains all Whitney Houston's essentials. I do not think that you CAN go wrong with this One.
