This album came out in November of '95, so that means that at this time I had just begun the third grade. As such, when my aunt and mother used to play it non-stop, I didn't even realize the star power behind this soundtrack. I, of course, knew the Whitney Houston tracks because (1)she was in the movie, and (2)her voice is so distinctive, but the only other artists I knew just from a listen were Aretha Franklin, Mary J, Chaka Khan and Brandy (8-year-olds just don't read liner notes). That's surprising, now, because this soundtrack had some of my favorite R&B singers on it. Despite this fact, I've loved the disc from the very beginning, and I know almost every song verbatim--and that includes the ad-libs at the end; I'm telling you at eight, I could riff with the best of 'em.

Exhale - although this is the "signature" song for the movie, this track is actually not the best here; with that said, Whitney's voice and those infectious, almost trilling "shoops" are enough to make it standout...9/10

Why Does It Hurt So Bad- this one is also good, but made almost great by Ms. Houston's vocals...9/10

Let It Flow - here we have Toni Braxton who wraps her golden voice around this this airy, truly "flowing" piece; in some lines she makes you rethink just how low the female voice can go, and I find the dichotomy of placing her just after the trilling soprano of Whitney Houston interesting...9.8/10

It Hurts Like Hell - I always enjoyed this number by the Queen of Soul, but could never sing along with it, because 3rd graders aren't allowed to curse (i.e, hell); still you should delight in how fresh and rangy her voice still sounded amongst all those younger gals (Patty and Chaka, excluded)...9.

For all intents and purposes, this soundtrack to the hit movie "Waiting to Exhale" is a Babyface record all the way. Here, Kenny Edmonds is in top form as a songwriter and producer, coming up with stellar tracks featuring a handful of the most respected female singers in r&b. "Why Does it Hurt So Bad" is Whitney's best, and most crushing, breakup song ever; the legendary Chaka shows off her pipes in her reworking of "My Funny Valentine," and Brandy gives her best single yet in the cutesy "Sittin' Up In My Room." Mary J. Blige brings the house down in "Not Gon' Cry," based on the movie's character, the troubled Bernadine. SWV shine in "All Night Long," and I absolutely love Chante Moore's seductively mellow "Wey You." This would be Babyface's last great project before he would experience a slow and steady decline, but you can always turn to this soundtrack, which was one of the best albums of the 1990s.

Even if you hated the movie (which I know a lot of people that did), you cannot deny the musical force behind the music. The "diva" herself, Ms. Whitney starts it off on the title track, called "Exhale"...a beautiful song that not only goes perfectly with the movie, but allows Ms Houston to showcase her stunning vocals. She also returns on "Why Does It Hurt So Bad?" and on a duet with gospel-singer, CeCe Winans on the friendship-inspired, feel-good song, "Count On Me." Toni Braxton shows up to breathe life into "Let It Flow". Aretha thought she might embarrass herself on "It Hurts Like Hell". {Face it folks, her voice ain't what it used to be anymore.} Brandy brings us a funky song, "Sitting Up In My Room,". TLC's "This Is How It Works" was better left off this soundtrack. Mary J Blige told us that she was "Not Gon' Cry" and reminded us that she should've "left your ass a thousand times..." Chaka Khan does a cover of "My Funny Valentine," complete with lush, full vocals. {This song reminds me of a smoky, dimly lit lounge with just a baby grand piano and her belting out this tune. It just has that type of feel to it.} "And I Gave My Love To You.." is okay. I have never heard of this artist before, so forgive me. SWV re-unites (temporarily) to sing this one. Again, folks, this one should have been left off the album. "Wey U" by Chante Moore is very nice. Her vocals are very pleasing to the ear. "My Love, Sweet Love," by Patti "Lady Marmalade" LaBelle is soooo pretty! I think of this as more a wedding song than anything else. Regardless, this song is one reason I purchased the soundtrack to begin with."Kissing You" by Faith, "Love Will Be Waiting At Home" by For Real, and "How Can You Call Her Baby?" by Shanna are some kind of nice, too. Not too much, but just enough.Read more ›
