Notes
℗ & © 1998 Arista Records, Inc.



After enduring years of listening to the same predictable material from Whitney, she managed to surprise me with the release of My Love Is Your Love. The album is full of surprises, she was able to do different musical genres and still sound incredible!


She has a more hip, R&B/hip-hop sound to this album, and the catchy, R&B/hip-hop tracks like "If I Told You That", "In My Business" and "Get It Back" are great beat-driven tracks, but the beat doesn't overshadow her incredible voice.

She also has a great deal of reggae influence on the title track, which is one of my favorite songs on the album.


There are some R-Kelly-style R&B jams as well like the hit "Heartbreak Hotel" with Faith Evans and Kelly Price, and the Missy Elliot-produced "Oh Yes"---my favorite track on the album, her voice sounds rich and crystal clear on that song.


For vintage Whitney fans, there are still those powerhouse ballads like "Until You Come Back" that sounds similar to "I Have Nothing", the touching "You'll Never Stand Alone", "I Bow Out" and the incredible "I Learned from the Best"---her new single. This album doesn't alienate any genre without seemingly trying to do so, unlike Mariah Carey. I absolutely love it and it's probably her best work ever!


The ballad 'I Learned From The Best' shows Whitney in top vocal form, and one can feel the music rather than just hear it. There are only a few artists out there who go to another level when singing (Michael Jackson being one, and possibly Celine or Mariah) and they take you with them. Great song.


'Oh Yesy' had suggestive lyrics, but you know what, it shines too! 'Until You Come Back' is a great love-huts balld, as is 'I Bow Out'.

"If I Told You That" produced by the great Rodney Jerkins is a bouncy hip hop number which will appeal to a new generation of Whitney fans.


Diane Warren lends three tracks to the album including "I Bow Out" which is produced by both Jerkins and Babyface (Can You Believe It).
The song's incredible bass line will have you hooked instantly.

Another Warren track is "I Learned From The Best" produced by David Foster. It is a grand ballad which features Whitney in all her glory, however the track maybe a bit over-produced.


The album's best track Warren's "You Never Stand Alone". It is a warm ballad full of lush strings and Whitney delievering her most laid back perforance since "You Were Loved" from The Preacher's Wife". This album has something for everybody and Whitney proves that she is still one of the best in the business.
