How can you go wrong with Whitney!,
This review is from: Whitney Houston - Greatest Hits (Audio CD)
Well, come on! When you've got all of her hits on two discs what else do you expect to get other than one fantastic, chart-topping album!! Whether or not she's your cup of tea, nobody can question the fact that Whitney Houston is one of the greatest female singers in the world ever, and this compilation of tracks shows you exactly why! With four number ones and nearly a dozen other top 10 singles in the Uk, this album covers an amazing 15 years worth of hits starting with her first massive selling number one song "Saving All My Love For You"!
This album is split into her two different styles - disc 1 is entitled "Cool Down" and this is where you find all of her amazing slower material including, ofcourse, the million selling single "I Will Always Love You"! Others in this section include "One Moment In Time", "I Have Nothing" and the 2000 hit duet with Enrique Iglesias, "Could I Have This Kiss Forever"! If you fancy some greats ballads then this is where you come!
However, if you're looking for some great tracks to get dancing to then flip over to disc 2 of this album which is called "Throw Down" and has all of Whitneys up-tempo tunes including her amazing number one hit "I Wanna Dance With Somebody"! This part also has massive hits like "I'm Every Woman" and more recently, "My Love Is Your Love" and "It's Not Right But It's Okay"!
This is a great album and there is only one thing missing, and thats the fantastic 1998 duet with the other top diva Mariah Carey, "When You Believe" which featured on the 'Prince of Egypt' soundtrack! A gorgeous song and a top 5 hit so its a real shame that thats not included, but thats my one and only negative point! Its pretty simple- if you want Whitney then go and buy this!
