13 Songs, 1 Hour

EDITORS’ NOTES

The octave-crushing diva opts to embrace the power of restraint on her fourth album; the mellow, reggae-inspired title track, especially, does more with less, as Houston rarely rises above a hush. On tracks like the ice-cold R&B burner “It’s Not Right But It’s Okay,” she makes uncharacteristically experimental beats her own, using their hyperkinetic energy as a springboard for her dizzying runs. And for her finale, “I Was Made to Love Him,” Houston flips a Stevie Wonder classic into earthy, free-spirited funk.

Her Greatest Complete Album

Even though I prefer many of her singles this is by far Ms. Houstons best complete work. Her voice is perfect and the sound of this album is timeless. Nearly 11 years later these songs could still be played on Top-40 radio and still sound contemporary. Standouts are definitely "My Love is Your Love", "Heartbreak Hotel", "It's Not Right BUt It's Okay" and "I Learned from the Best". Hightly recommended if you're going to buy 1 complete Whitney Houston album and not just singles this is the one.

Amazing comeback from her.

I remember when "My Love Is Your Love" was a hit on mainstream radio. It was a great mix of R&B and pop. Typical great Whitney mix. Clive Davis once again was the Executive Producer of this album. Special guests are plenty on this album as it is collaboration heavy. Every song could be a hit. This is classic urban Contemporary at its finest. A good mix of R&B and pop. The best ballad on here is "You'll Never Stand Alone" and the best single is "When You Believe" which also features Mariah Carey as a duet.
