Product Description

Toni Braxton Secrets UK CD album

Amazon.com

Well, it is a La Face record, so of course it has the Babyface stamp all over it--especially on "Let It Flow," also featured on his Waiting to Exhale soundtrack, and "There's No Me Without You." 'Face does step aside, however, to give other producers, songwriters, and artists their time with Miss Braxton, most notably R. Kelly, Diane Warren, Tony Rich, and Kenny G. R&B songbirds in their own right, Shanice Wilson and Chante Moore even show up on backing vocals. The album doesn't quite live up to this overdose of talent; it's too crammed with boring ballads (even if Braxton's low, husky vocals are perfectly suited for them, especially the wrenching watermark of the album, "Un-Break My Heart"). It's when she slips into a sultry groove on "Come On Over Here" and the smash single "You're Makin Me High" that she really shines. --Rebecca Wallwork

I bought this album back in 1997 and actually I don't know why i bought it I think that was that I saw on cable the "you're making me high" video and I saw in a store and bought it.
This album is amazing the lyrics are beautiful, there's no a song that I don't like, the rhythms are very good also and besides that I like this album it was one of the biggest hits of 1997 with song such as: "you're making me high" (my own favorite) the song did it to #1 in the Hot 100, Hot R&B song and Club dance charts another hit and maybe Toni's biggest song "un-break my heart" is also in this album "Un-break" became also a #1, another great song is the soft "how could an angel break my heart" were features Kenny G.
Here's also one song from the 1996 hit soundtrack "waiting to exhaale" the song is "let it flow". Actually I love all the ssongs in this album from the first one "come on over here" until "I the late of night".
This album won 3 or 4 Grammy awards (I'm not sure about the amount)and sold over 10 million copies worldwide.

After a sultry and stylish debut album that helped earn her a Best New Artist Grammy, Toni Braxton steps up to the follow-up plate and hits anything but a sophomore slump. Full of warm musical backdrops and Toni's trademark sexy alto, "Secrets" lives up to the expectations her debut set in place.
Every now and again you'll find a singer whose interpretative gifts mesh perfectly with the producer or songwriter at hand. Such magic can be found when Toni takes on one of Babyface's acoustic-based, almost-folky pop tunes. "Let it Flow," "There's No Me Without You," and "Why Should I Care" are all gorgeous ballads with acoustic guitars in the forefront and the heat set on slow-burn, and Toni more than rises to the challenge. Of course, these songs were all solely written and produced by Babyface, so the argument may be made that the artistic vision isn't truly Toni's. The final audio result, however, is truly fantastic.
Unfortunately, R. Kelly doesn't serve Braxton as well; Babyface and Toni often seem two halves of the same whole, while R. Kelly's composition "I Don't Want To," which he also produced, merely sounds like Toni singing along to an R. Kelly karaoke tape. And even Babyface can fall short now and then, proven on the sleepy ballad appropriately titled "In the Late of Night." "Unbreak My Heart," however, is one of the rare moments in R&B that manages to build a bridge to pop and still maintain soul in the recording. No shock that this soaring ballad sealed Toni's then-pending true crossover success.

I remember buying this CD the day it came out. Her first CD was already a classic so I expected the same from her sophomore release. On her first CD, Toni had a combination of slow songs, midtempo grooves, and uptempo grooves. After hearing the single, "You're Makin' Me High" I expected the album to be more of the same just like her first CD. After the CD was over, I was impressed by the way Toni Braxton presented different tales of slow jams. On "Secrets" Toni Braxton had a lot more producers than she did on the first CD. Babyface and L.A. Reid did most of the work on the first CD, but on "Secrets" there's more of a variety, which doesn't hurt the CD at all. Babyface, this time around is actually working by himself, without his business partner L.A. Reid. The best examples of Toni's slow jam presentation are "There's No Me Without You" which is produced by Babyface, "Talking in his Sleep", "I Don't Want To", and "Un-Break My Heart". This is a great CD for anyone that likes slow jams or ballads. If you are a fan of more uptempo and midtempo songs this might not be the CD for you. Her first CD might be a better recommendation.

chocked full of slow ballads, toni's sophomore set is a real treat on the ears. diane warren, babyface, kenny g, r kelly, among others, have contributed to this amazing album.
this album gets all 5 stars because its the only cd I have that I can play without cringing or wanting/having to skip to the next song. if you just want to lay down and relax after a hard day's work, this is the album to play.
favorites of mine include the hit "unbreak my heart", "how could an angel break my heart", and "I don't want to". but as I previously stated, her whole album is enjoyable.
ms. braxton's songs are all beautiful and soul enriching. they take you away from all the chaos and turmoils of one's hectic day.
as the cd came to an end in my player, I realized one of toni's secrets. when she sings ballads, she sings from her heart. any musician that can do that transcends their artform and into our lives.

Format: Audio CD
I bought this album sometime after Unbreak My Heart was released, I was about 13. I thought it was one of the best albums I owned and it's aged really nicely too. I still listen to it time to time when relaxing. She may have played it safe with her sophomore album by working with hot r&b producers like babyface, r.kelly and tony rich, but it really works. The ballads are beautiful and smoky hot and her voice blends into the music so beautifully. A lot of singles were released from this album from 1996 through 1997, some of which were just released to radio while others had music videos. I remember her getting a lot of billboard, ama and grammy awards at the time in her revealing dresses, and her being the talk of the award shows the next day at school. Another memory is the remix of you're making me high that had a reggae/hip hop vibe to it. Just be warned that this CD doesn't really have any fast tracks, it's mostly soft, jazzy r&b ballads.
