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.
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.Read more ›
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.
