Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Import pressing includes one bonus track, Give U My Heart (Mad Ball Mix). 13 tracks in all. Sony/BMG.

Amazon.com

The perfect matchup of singer, song, and producer is a wondrous thing, and no more so in the producer-driven realm of black pop. Such a wonderful moment was the debut from Toni Braxton who, in Kenneth Babyface Edmonds, had an uber lord who tapped into the dark yet radio-friendly recess of her soul. Braxton gives nobility to heartbreak with classics like "Breathe Again." Her debut remains one of the best of the '90s. --Amy Linden

Once upon a time, L.A. Reid and Babyface wrote a song for the "Boomerang" soundtrack titled "Love Shoulda Brought You Home," intended for Anita Baker. Schedules didn't match up, however, and the tune was instead handed to LaFace's recent discovery, Toni Braxton. Newcomer Braxton had some large shoes to fill indeed, but as it turned out, her ashen alto fit the blue, done-wrong-by-love lyrics to a T, and an R&B hit was launched. Will an entire project from a newcomer live up to such success?
Hell yes, and then some. Toni's self-titled debut reached out and touched not only R&B audiences but pop fans as well, with her heartfelt renditions of love's torments having the strongest effect. "Another Sad Love Song" is a woeful tale of a girl who can't even turn on the radio without being haunted by the one that got away, and "Breathe Again" finds our heroine resigning herself to life being all but over once her love affair is. These songs, laid over hip-hop and pop grooves respectively, have a melancholy element of blues riding underneath; "Seven Whole Days," however, is borderline jazz in both musical backdrop and vocal delivery.
As on almost anyone's debut, Toni's steps toward artistic self-discovery occasionally stumble: "Love Affair" is too similar to "Seven Whole Days" stylistically, and "Days" never suffers from too-hip lyrics like "I ain't down with O.P.P.," the likes of which are destined to sound drastically dated down the line. Furthermore, "Best Friend" features a sleepily predictable chord progression and lyrics about losing a lover to a best friend that are more melodrama than drama.

It's been a decade since this album was released and we can still hear several songs on the radio such as: "another sand love song" which was the first single of the album, was certified Gold in the US, won a Grammy award for "best female pop vocal performance" and became a #1 hit. The second single, "breath again" was also certified Gold, became also a #1 hit and won a Grammy award for "best female pop vocal performance" in 1994, the success of the song was so big that Toni also realesed this song in spanish, the tittle was "respirar", the third single "seven whole days" was also a hit, the song made it to the Top 10 as the fifth single "you mean the world to me", the sixth single which was "how many ways" was a Top 40. Thanks to this hit singles and the song that was part of the "Boomerang" soundtrack. That was Toni's first single ("love shoulda brought you home").
This album sold 10 million copies world-wide (was a #1 in The Billboard 200 for 2 weeks) and brought Toni the 1993 Grammy "Best new artist" and showed the world the new treasure that was in the music market.
Actually I didn't buy this album when was realesed, I bought it in 1997 when Toni's album "secrets" was on its top and because I liked so much "secrets" I decided to buy this one and I know that "secrets" is the sequel of this album with very good lyrics.
I can also say that this production was produced by hit singer/song writer/producer Babyface ("Waiting to exhale", "Boomerang" between other soundtracks) and Antonio L.A Reid (producer of singers like Pink or Avril Lavigne).
You won't be soory if you buy this album and besides, it's a classic.
Good work Toni!!!.

When Toni first stepped onto the scene with this debut, she easily defined herself as an artist to watch out for with one of the best albums of the decade. This was released back in '93 when R&B wasn't all about money and power. With the production team of LA Reid & Babyface, you really couldn't go wrong at the time (as they were at the top of their game back then).
The album starts off with "Another Sad Love Song" and "Breathe Again", two crossover hits that worked wonders on both urban and pop stations. Her voice takes you on an emotional ride like few artists can - probably because of her low octave range with excellent ability (actually, this applies to every song on this album). Next is "Seven Whole Days" - a very soulful track. This was followed by "Love Affair", "Candlelight", and "Spending My Time With You", and while they aren't highlights to me, they are good songs nonetheless.
The album continues with "Love Shoulda Brought You Home", originally from the Boomerang Soundtrack, this was the track that launched her into the spotlight. Not a big hit, but it portrayed her as a well established soul artist when it was actually her debut. "I Belong To You" and "How Many Ways" were smaller crossover hits, "I Belong To You" being a fairly upbeat R&B song, and "How Many Ways" featuring haunting vocals. The third big crossover hit "You Mean The World To Me" followed in "Breathe Again's" footsteps as another great song. After this emotional rollercoaster, "Best Friend" can only look weak in comparison. The album finally finishes off with a "Breathe Again" Reprise.
