Released: 24th April 2000.
One of the most original R&B singers is back with not so original album. Is it a total waste of money though?
The opening track is the hit "He Wasn't Man Enough" produced by Rodney Jerkins. Sure, he's a cool producer, but before working with Toni he'd worked with everybody else, from Brandy to Whitney Houston. It's difficlut however to resist the addictiveness of the song,as it's the strongest up-tempo on the album.
The next track, title track from the album, starts out with amazing intro but unfortunately the song's chorus, while it should be the momentum of the song, doesn't match up the rest.
Moving on, we have Diane Warren penned "Spanish Guitar", which to some extent resembles the 1996 hit "Un-break my Heart". However, "Spanish Guitar" is much more sophisticated and soulful. Also, the gorgeous backing vocals from singers other than Braxton, make the song less annoying for those who think Toni should never be a singer. Actually, if not the whoole song, the third minute of the track is definitely a highlight of the album.
Apart from the sensual "The Art Of Love" and funky "Gimmie Some" the rest of the album is pretty average, standard R&B music without revelations, however the four highlights make it worth a few listens.
