This is another excellent album my patti labelle, i have to say it makes me laugh in some parts. i mean that in the nicest possible way though for example the first track "THE KITCHEN", you hear her cooking and then on the phone to a friend, class!!. Some of the songs are greatly written such as "IF I WAS A RIVER", and patti of cause sings them amazingly such emotion in each word. I just love to hear her sing. PHENOMONAL.
I don't know what CD the first reviewer was listening to but it certainly was not this one, 3 stars what are you talking about?. Aged divas, i think this CD proves she is no where near the end of her career and the term diva seems to be given to anyone these days so i wouldn't call her that. Anyway great work Patti and keep it going.
From Katy Beard a fan forever

Im not really into writing reviews but sometimes when something touches you you feel like spreading the word. ever since i saw La Belle on the original Live Aid Concert, i was amazed by the power, passion and enjoyment she expelled onto the audience. This lady can sing songs with belief. This album has some gentle thought provoking love songs and some a couple of up-beat tracks. I love the fantastic intro of La Belle coooking in her kitchen!

Henceforth, the "material" issue is precisely that: a topic germaine to a survey of the current opuses from our aged-divas Patti Labelle and Diana Ross. Although the sets, irrespective of each other, were neither an out-and-out concession to rally a younger audience to their favor,they-more in the case of Diana Ross' "Every Day is a new Day"- were not blantanly out of step with the more current and progressive trends in dance and R&B-for it would ostensibly be these markets that would most openly embrace its "heritage" arists.
Incidentally, neither fifty-six-year-old chose to straddle the middle-of-the-road on their most recent sets. However, the comeback of another fifty-six year old male to the contempo Urban AC scene seems anamolous by comparison: he made no concession to any audienceor trend; he did what he always did. The maestro was still demonstrating his "prowess" to the delight of a legion of fans.His ability to maintain his "staying power" without changing is the anamoly-no concessions were made.
With that said, with regard Ms. Labelle and her intention to perform an album of Diane Warren material, the following queries: 1) Is it her way of conceding-or god forbid "change" to suit her older audience whom she perceives are not capable of receiving her as faithfully or 2) Is it her-albeit misguided in practice- way of guranteeing a "smash"?
The answer itself in theory may found in the middle of the road, but the material itself seldom straddles the middle of the road. The savvy production of the songs and Patti's grittier classic delivery on "When a Woman Loves" offsets the often hackneyed and outdated Diane Warren lyricism.

HASH(0x8b5650ac) out of 5 stars Get's no better than this..... 19 Oct. 2000
By Everett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
WHEN A WOMAN LOVES....what an album. This is Patti at her absolute best. I must admit that when I first listened to the cd i thought it was just ok...but now, I can't stop playing this cd. The album was written entirely by Diane Warren and tracks were produced by Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis; Hex Hector & Mac Quayle; & Khris Kellow. The album starts with THE KITCHEN (patti getting a phone call from her girlfriend) and then moves into WHEN A WOMAN LOVES...a beautiful ballad....Then there's another skit where Patti talks about her dogs...and then we go into the beautiful Tamia remake MAKE TONIGHT BEAUTIFUL..next is IF I WAS A RIVER, another nice ballad....Then we get to the masterpiece WHY DO WE HURT EACH OTHER..this has got to be my favorite song on the cd....Patti sings like she has never sang before with great ad libs by Big Jim Wright...Next it's time to get up and move..and it starts with TOO MANY TEARS, TOO MANY TIMES....and then moves to the FUNKY "CALL ME GONE"...Patti being right at home with Jimmy & Terry..TIME WILL was my least favorite when I first listened to the cd...sounds like a leftover from Cher's BELIEVE cd...but I find myself singing it....it's a very catchy song. The remainder of the cd are ballads...TELL ME WHERE IT HURTS is a very nice song, kinda reminds me of KISS AWAY THE PAIN...then another JIMMY & TERRY produced ballad, I'D STILL LOVE YOU MORE with background again by Big Jim Wright with Lisa Keith & Patti...Then comes Patti's remake of the Taylor Dayne hit LOVE WILL LEAD YOU BACK...Patti takes the song and makes it her own... The album closes as it opens with WHEN A WOMAN LOVES (reprise)..
Don't sleep on this cd because all the songs were written by Diane Warren....This is definantely Patti at her very best!!!

HASH(0x8afa85a0) out of 5 stars A Voice that Will Blow you Away 14 Nov. 2000
By Jared I. Adler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Let's see...Patti is 56 and can still blow away every other singer out there. (an accomplishment all by itself) Her fans will shed many tears of joy after listening to her newest release "When A Woman Loves." Completely penned by Diane Warren (How Do I Live, Unbreak My Heart), When A Woman Loves takes the listener on an emotional journey of love and loss. Patti effortlessly drives home every song, hitting every high note possible. This is a true diva at work here folks! The dance songs are a nice change (Time Will, and Too Many Tears) and definitely need some remixes for peak hour frenzy on the dancefloors. The highlight of this CD is "If I Was A River." This stunning ballad marks some of Warren's best lyrics ever and Patti's vocals soar like you've never heard before. Originally performed by Australian chanteuse Tina Arena, "River" is worth the price of the CD alone. (If you care about pop music at all, you'll check out Tina Arena's "In Deep" cd and hear the original form in all of it's 6 minute glory!) Only drawback on this CD is that some of the tunes begin to mesh together. There isn't as much diversity on a CD written by only one songwriter. But, Ms. Warren knows her stuff and will be around for a very long time. More collaborations with Patti are simply the icing on the cake!

HASH(0x8b036708) out of 5 stars When a Woman Loves-the story 10 Dec. 2000
By M. J. Moore - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Patti LaBelle's "When a Woman Loves" released on October 24 is her best cd and one of the best out there. The cd contains powerhouse ballads that only Miss Patti LaBelle can do and uptempo dance cuts including the AC Urban Radio hit-"Call Me Gone". The story-like cd, which is dedicated to all the women and for the fellas who want to learn how to love a woman and treat her right, begins with "The Kitchen" where Patti talks to one of her friends about the kind of man she wants. Then the cd goes into the title track When A Woman Loves. This mellow ballad is the theme of the cd and yes Patti does use her powerful lungs on here. The nest song is one of those baby-making songs. Make Tonight Beautiful is nothing short of umm. beautiful. It's got a nice beat and it just makes you want to be with the one you love or find someone to love. The nest song If I Was a River is almost everyone's favorite. Yes it is a ballad and yes Patti does work this. Lets see, she holds a few long notes and does one of those showstopping interludes in the song. This is worth buying the cd. Why Do We Hurt Each Other is a mid-tempo song that talks about well look at the title but she does another interlude in here too where she shows off her vocal acrobatics. The dance tune Too Many Tears, Too Many Times really sounds like alot of the stuff that is out there now and Patti does not sound out of place singing it. Call Me Gone is a song to get just to dance. I mean the background vocals and the... this song is good. Time Will is a dance song and a good one at that. Tell Me Where It Hurts is another favorite and this mid-tempo song. Its great. Patti subdues her vocals to just let the beat take over. Ill Still Love You More and Love Will Lead You Back are covers of Trisha Yearwood and Taylor Dayne respectively and yes Patti tears them up. If you happen to like their version...hers is better or if you dont well hers is good. There is a little enlightenment talk for women and the cd closes with the title track to sum up the whole story. If you dont have the cd then go get it. When you hear you have to ask yourself is patti 56? Cuz the diva still has it all-voice and looks. Lovely Christmas present.

HASH(0x8b036594) out of 5 stars One of 2000's Best!! 1 Nov. 2000
By Ben McDermott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Patti Labelle is not one of my favorite artists. However, when I heard she would be singing an album of songs written by the greatest songwriter ever, Diane Warren, I decided to give her a chance. "When a Woman Loves" is a collection of 10 songs all centered around the way a woman feels when she falls in and out of love. After listening to this CD once, any misconceptions I had about Ms. Labelle were clearly false. "When a Woman Loves" is one of the most dynamic and soulful albums I've ever heard. I have never come across an album in which every song could be worthy of being a hit! The first single of the album "Call Me Gone" is a perfect example of a song ripe for radio airplay. With it's infectious beat, and catchy lyrics like "you can call me wrong, but honey, call me gone" this song is surely one to look out for. The convection that Patti sings this song with is truly incredible. All I can say is that I'm glad my girlfriend isn't singing this song to me! Other upbeat tracks include "Time Will," a made for the club anthem that is sure to find a home on DJ's playlist at clubs all across the country, and the disco-laced "Too Many Tears, Too Many Times" which sounds like a song right out of the movie Saturday Night Fever! Of course it wouldn't be a Diane Warren written album without her trademark ballads. Many of them are remakes of songs done by other artist. What is amazing is that all of the remakes try to tell the story of the song differently from there originals. If I Was a River is clearly the standout of the remakes. Originally done by Australian pop star Tina Arena, her version of the song was an all out power ballad. Patti version is much more laid back, allowing Patti to get personal with the song that requires a very delicate performance due to it's very moving subject matter. Producer Khris Kellow does an outstanding job arranging this gem, which includes the background vocals of Kris, Jackie Simley, and Carl and Sue Ann Carwell, who clearly give this song the emotional backing that makes it so impressive. Other remakes include the wonderfully written "I'll Still Love You More," which was a top ten hit for Trisha Yearwood on the country charts last year. Patti even tackles Taylor Dayne's number one hit "Love Will Lead You Back." Another impressive remake is "Tell Me Where It Hurts" which has been recorded by a half a dozen artists in the past. The album also features two new Warren ballads. "Why Do We Have To Hurt Each Other," is a soft, flowing love song with a potent melody that Patti picks up and takes to the next level. This is defiantly the most soulful track on the album! However the clear highlight of this remarkable album is the title track "When a Woman Loves." This song brings the album full circle, clearly expressing all of the emotions that each of the other songs hit upon. This song is captures the sprit of the album and brings it into one defining moment that truly is one of Diane Warren's best songs to date. Patti sings this song with her heart on her sleeve, and with such sincerity that it becomes the albums centerpiece, and perhaps a real anthem for all women out there. This album is clearly one of the best of 2000 and accomplishes two things. It proves that although she has grown older, Patti can still sing her heart out! It also proves that the magic of Diane Warren is alive and stronger then ever!!

HASH(0x8b036894) out of 5 stars Mr. Cavier, Mr Porkchop and Miss Patti! 16 April 2014
By whitechocolatebrotha - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
How this album failed to catch fire is a crime in itself. From the cute opening of "The Kitchen" to the beautiful Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis-produced, smoldering and heart-wrenching ballads, "When A Woman Loves," "Make Tonight Beautiful" and "Why Do We Hurt Each Other," to the funky, chugging directness of "Call Me Gone," Miss Patti lays all the emotion of a woman falling out of love right on the table.

There is ONE moment here that is clearly out of place and that throws a clunk into the album and that is the Hex Hector-produced uptempo moment, "Time Will," which features an outdated Techno/Club approach to the then current day music. Personally, I would have scrapped this one and included perhaps another more R&B-seasoned Flyte Tyme joint to further compliment "Call Me Gone's blatant "diss" factor. It's not that Miss Patti can't sink her chops into a solid club number; it's that this club number in particular botches up the album's sequencing and sticks out like a sore thumb. They might have put it at the end of the album (rather than in the middle) so as to let it stand as the hopeful contributor that it truly is.

On the whole and contrary to what the other negative reviews here state, I would not discount this album and would most DEFINITELY include it within the range of her past "hit" albums. The focus here seems more A.C., but consider what she was going through at this time and then, before making any wrong judgements, weigh it out and see exactly what happens "when a woman loves" and what she is so earnestly saying throughout the project. Did she ever marry Mr. Porkchop after all this or did she go with Mr. Cavier insTEAD? ;-)
