At this point Whitney had more of a difficult reputation in the press than anything. No big movie roles,no albums in a little while and erratic public displays. While her life seemed to be crumbling around her,she released what I'd say is the best and and most consistant albums of her career. One of the reasons is not only her interest in pursuing more funk oriented music but also better taste in production. Basically this is a lean,mean album all around. The old school style sophistifunk of "One Of These Days and especially "Love That Mean" really leading the way.Read more ›
"Try It On My Own","You Light up My Life","Unashamed",and Tell Me No" were she really expresses the way she feels.Then "Watchalookinat" the single were she fights back at the press for the rumors that is a good song
This album is excellent,it makes u feel like you are in a relationship
go out and by the album :)
"One Of Those Days" starts the groove right with Whitney in superb form in wonderfully flowing song that is infectious and should have been a huge blockbuster hit...riveting "Tell Me No" is a great Whitney anthem with an edgy tremendous vocal being one of her finest and guaranteed to wear out that repeat mode..."Things You Say" is wildly romantic and engrossing while the great self-penned Bobby Brown duet "My Love" is winning with a nice flow to it.
A funky romantic jam "Love That Man" is a cooker that has a hit sound to it while "Try It On My Own" is one of Whitney's greatest ever anthem performances...solid classic is thrilling to experience both vocally and emotionally defining what this magnificent singer is all about. A great funky jam "Dear John Letter" flows like honey while a hypnotic "Unashamed" is dark and exotic...Read more ›
Her new album, Just Whitney continues the exact same vibe Whitney had with her previous album, My Love Is Your Love. Each song is crafted with songs that range from Adult Contemporary, to Hip Hop formats. This album is her first one without her longtime friend, Clive Davis, who left Arista in 2000. So for this one, she actually picked somebody she actually knows best, her husband Bobby Brown, who performs on the collaboration My Love, and produced Whatchulookinat, a song about lashing out at the media for making her into a foolish joke, which is similar to Eminem, without any bad sware words thankfully.
The album also includes nine other strong songs, including a cover of the Pop Standard, You Light Up My Life, and Try It On My Own, a song about growing up, and underdstanding life as you get older and more mature.
Although there are fewer songs than My Love Is Your Love, I can clearly say that this is truly the first record where every song that Whitney Houston made, where I can listen to the whole record, and not just favorites here and there. Both Whitney and Bobby should try to collaborate on good records like this in the future, not bad for a couple the media thinks of as bad. Although it is a little late, but I declare this as the Best R&B Album of 2002. It Is truly worth the price.
