Editorial Reviews

Introducing the youngest member of one of music's greatest dynasties: Mario is the son of Marvin Winans (Grammy Award winning quartet, the Winans) and gospel powerhouse Vickie Winans (incidentally, this makes him the nephew of BeBe & CeCe). Mario honed his skills during his years collaborating with R. Kelly (in '95, he wrote the music for Kelly's #1 hit, "You Remind Me of Something"). on Story of My Heart, Mario projects a rich, gospel-trained voice, with a unique raspiness that sets him apart. First single/video: The ballad "Don't Know." [Note: This product is an authorized CD-R and is manufactured on demand]

This is without a doubt one of the best albums of 1997. However it got more slept on than silversheets. I don't think I've ever felt a collection of songs as much as I did with these. This album is simply for everyone who's ever been in love. Mario's got a wonderful voice and he's writing the most beautiful lovesongs. They revolve around mostly simple and sometimes stereotypical phrases. But what makes Mario stand out amongst all the other Soul/R&B-albums released by the dozen is his way of them sound original and fresh. The music goes straight to your heart without taking that unnecessary route through your brain. That's how great music should be. When I picked up the album I was really heartbroken and Mario described my feelings better than I could have myself. Every line was true.
I highly recommend this album to everyone who has ever experienced both the ups and downs of this thing love.
Thank you Mario for making one of my favourite albums ever. I'm dying for another one.

This cd is one of the best ones that I have heard in a very long time. Not only does Mario express his emotions but he does it in a way that makes you want to fall in love all over again. Mario proves that he is not afraid to show his feelings. If there is one slow jam cd that should be brought it should be this one. You will not be disappointed.

This cd from mario jsut shows how much of a talent he is in front of all the work he did with badboy and various other artists like Lil Kim, Ginuwune and others. If you want to talk about an album that has slow jams galore with a different twist and that you will feel becasue its different...then this is the cd. Songs like "think about you" and "Arouse" just sum up what I mean. There are some upbeat songs but overall everything is set for the "love" or "Bedroom" mode. Dont sleep on mario......he is another badboy hitman that is about to take his place on the front stage.
Get it!

Mario Winan, well really what can you really say but that his cd was one of a milion cd today that is being slept on. This is truly one of the best cd's I've heard in a long time. From beginning to end, this cd fills your mind, takes your heart and mind places that gives you a sense of allowing yourself to experience alot of phacets of love and understanding. I also believe that this artist will no doubt make it big (Blow Up!) with his style of writting and his vocal range.
Truly one to have in your collection if you're a romantic type of person. Overall 5 stars really doesn't even scratch the surface of this master piece.

All instruments and drum programming on all songs except for Track 11 (Don't Know Remix).

This guy created one of the most phenomenal debut albums in soul history. I don't use the word "R&B"... this gent is a 'Winans" ( respect ).

Let's take 3 seasoned veterans and compare their much anticipated debut releases with Mario Winans: Dwayne Wiggins (Eyes Never Lie; brother of Raphael Saadiq and foundational member of TonyToniTone), Ali Shaheed Muhammad ( Shadilullah and Stereotypes; DJ + Foundational member of A Tribe Called Quest) and... who else? ... oh yes! (ha!) Terry Ellis (Southern Gal; foundational member of En Vogue).

These were well established artists with documented evidence that they knew how to jam! All 3 debut albums?... pft.. 3/10, at best! ( not being a hater; I am blessed / lucky to own all three ).

MARIO WINANS, on the other hand? Every single track is a well thought out composition. Even the most rudimentary + repetitive track boasts awe aspiring creativity. After (loosely) comparing his album to 3 'flops' that could have been EPIC... compare him to fellow "one-man show" type artists. Let's say... Prince, Lenny Kravitz, Beck, D'Angelo... They all write, produce, arrange, perform almost every single word + instrument on their albums. Mario Winans is one of those cats, and that in itself should motivate you to purchase this LP! ( If D + LK + P are all 9/10s, I would give Mario Winans a 7/10, but that's only because he is young).

*sigh*

Unfortunately, he hooked up with BAD BOY and completely euthanised his talent! His second album is trash... and I can't believe ALLMUSIC rated it better than "Story of My Heart" ( sorry Mr.Winans; you sir produced one of the top 10 soul debut albums of all time!

I bought this album out of sheer curiosity. I heard the name Mario Winans around the industry, but I thought he was just a producer until I saw him singing in a video recently. I later found out that he is a memeber of the famed Winans family, so of course he can sing! Not only can he sing he can write. His songs are so powerful. After listening to them I wanted to feel what he felt. I highly recommend this album-Don't sleep.

I had this cd until my husband heard it and put it in his cd changer in his car and never returned it. I absolutely think this should be one of the artist getting constant air-time but as usual true talent goes un-noticed. Don't let this one pass you by. The lyrics are real the music is beautiful. I am buying another cd for myself because I feel this is an essential for MY collection. :)
