First studio album since 1999, had a very special beginning. While at home looking through a family photo album, listening to 'Remember' by Harry Nilsson, she became inspired to record a new album of love songs with a positive message. CD/DVD Deluxe Edition contains behind the scenes footage and photo gallery.
Diana Ross may have hand-selected the 14 songs on this disc, but as its executive producer she didn't do her domineering reputation justice. Arrangements sag when they should snap-to. At times they're dozy. Occasionally, as in Berlin's "Take My Breath Away," they drown themselves in melancholy. But the good news is that they don't pull Diana's vocals down with them. There are moments on I Love You when the world's most distinguished diva positively purrs (Harry Nilsson's classic "Remember," which opens and closes the disc), and others when she digs deep ("To Be Loved"); 40-plus years into her career, her voice is still her own. In addition to the arrangements, problems with this imperfect disc include the songs themselves which, in this age of carefully calculated comebacks, could have been better edited (Spiral Staircase's "More Today Than Yesterday" is Ross's speed; Paul McCartney's contemplative "I Will" isn't). Still, when Diana goes for redemption she does it up big, true to form, and where I Love You redeems itself best is on its sole original composition. Title track "I Love You" is pure valentine; a heartfelt burst that, in three sweetly sung words, speaks volumes. --Tammy La Gorce

This coming from a long time Diana Ross fan. Obviously time has changed her voice, and not for the better. Read morePublished 18 months ago by Blog Shag
This album is not so classic Diana Ross but truly shows off her various styles and more. The second track More Today than Yesterday is a new take on an old song. Read morePublished on July 29, 2013 by Walter P. Gross

|Diana's worst ever||
It may not be her worst ever but it's not far short of it. I think that Diana made a mistake here trying for a "Blue" part 2. At least she didn't release a rap/house/hip-hop type album.

|Why the old photo for the new cd?||
I do, I do - especially since she looks so beautiful in her new videos made for this CD.

Good question! Since the $25 one has 2 discs, I would guess that's the one with the DVD, but without the 2 bonus tracks (even though they're listed)...
and, the $35 one has the extra tracks, but no DVD. Would like to know for sure, also!
