Whitney Houston ~ Whitney ~ Review #69

The late 80s and early 90s were such good times for Whitney Houston she was literally a force to be reckoned with, if nothing else she was the face of an entire genre, I wonder the pressure she must have felt to deliver on this her second project, the first was so well received I wonder if she had any doubt she could deliver, she definitely did with this one, all the things with the first that made her a household name were here again in full force, songs to dance too, power ballads of love to sing too, and the signature love song to cry to cry too done if course in typical Whitney fashion, definitely worth a listen for any fan of R&B…

    • Hey friend how you been, you know you bring up a very interesting point, when I did this one I was really on the fence about what to label her sound at the time, I wanted to call it pop but she wasn’t the pop of that era, I went with R&B given that’s where she ultimately ends up, but her music didn’t sound wasn’t that either…

      I think it’s what made her such a force, she was for everyone in the beginning, gotta love Whitney no matter what, kinda looks like she was trying to get back to this sorta sound in her last year’s…

      • I’ve been good love! How bout you?
        And as for Whitney, I think you are absolutely right–her first album wasn’t fully pop–especially “Lonely talking again.”
        Man when she was in her prime she was hard to beat!
        That voice tho’
