Whitneys Most Autobiographical and Personal Album Yet, September 6, 2009
I think that Whitneys I look to You is her most autobigraphical and personal
album yet. From the ballads, I look to you, and I didnt know my own strength,
you can feel through her voice, her struggles, her lowpoints, how she got to
know that she was strong and who she looked to for help.I think when we see her
on Oprah on Sept 14 & 15, the songs abov e will be put in context. When she
mournfully croons, ...i didnt know if i would make it, all i could do is lift my
head, i look to you.. I so feel her on that,my heart ached because i felt her
desparation and call out for help.
While A song for you will never touch her
masterful rendition that she did at the welcome home heroes show(youtube it- no
one has been able to touch that rendition) , it is unique and beautiful in its
own way and somehow the lyrics now fit her life at this stage more, ..ive been
so many places in my life and time, sung alot of songss, made some bad
rhyme....and when my life is over, remember when we were alone, i was singing
this song for you... there is a haunting quality to her voice when she sings
this and then it breaks into a more upbeat dance number that is more triumphant.
For the Lovers sees houston belting, throw your hands up, for the next 3
mins this is for the lovers this thumping number will have you on the dance
floor and people will see why she is just as good on dance tracks- the Voice is
very powerful here and the phrasing is great.
There are other strong songs
such as Worth it and Call you tonight as well, The set closes out with the song
Salute that just seems to be about her telling her ex- husband that she made it
just fine without him and that he can leave and go on out the door now. With
Houston singing,...you said i could never do better, I CAN do better, yeah
right, whatever, im feeling a bit stronger than you, lately, im feeling abit
taller that you, yeah baby lately.. one feel that indeed, Ms. Houston is in a
better space personally and spiritually.
This is a strong album, suprisingly
by houston and there are many, many good songs on it. This is an album that i
dont skip any tracks which for me is rare- If you listen without predjudice and
try not to compare her to her 20s which is silly, you will enjoy an awesome
album by houston who lets us into her life more than she has in the pass.
