    Dislike the title track (so boring!) but all the other singles were great. Heartbreak Hotel is her best song.

    It's Not Right But It's Okay: perfect album opener, a fresh new sound for Nippy and a more feisty attitude
    Heartbreak Hotel: flawless R&B-track, even though I think Nippy is outshined by the vocals of Kelly Price and Faith
    My Love Is Your Love: very touching, catchy song
    When You Believe: a classic duet, great vocal performance by both
    If I Told You That: great up-tempo track, sounds a bit dated now
    In My Business: good album track, sounds a bit dated now
    I Learned From The Best: run-of-the-mill Diane Warren ballad that gets upgraded big time by Nippy's vocal performance
    Oh Yes: wonderful R&B-song
    Get It Back: good album track, but sounds dated now
    Until You Come Back: classic Whitney! sounds like a mature version of Saving All My Love For You
    I Bow Out: great R&B-track
    You'll Never Stand Alone: nice album closer, Nippy is singing this from her heart

    This is probably my most favorite album from her. I think it's her most consistent and cohesive body of work. It feels like listening to an actual album, not just a collection of tracks. I loooove her "smokey vocals" on it, but I kind of agree the title track is a bit overrated.

    And can we all agree the Thunderpuss Remix of INRBIO just shits on the original version? it's actually one of the best remixes I've ever heard of any artist.

    Fave tracks:

    Heartbreak Hotel
    It's Not But It's Okay
    I Learned from the Best
    Oh Yes
    I Bow Out
    You'll Never Stand Alone (one of my favorite Whitney ballads)
    Until You Come Back

    But it contains her weakest remake, I Was Born to Love Him.

    My favourite Whitney album. Flawless from the start to the end.
    See, I'm looking for a man that'll rub me slow, make me sing real high when he goes down low

    My Love Is Your Love is one of the greatest songs of all time in my opinion. Was just listening to it a few minutes ago and it's so timeless.

    It's just alright, some parts sound too mainstream like it could have been in Brandy or Monica's albums, although all the singles were amazing. Rodney Jerkins really saved the album, Missy and Diane didn't create their best work here.

    To be honest, it's not one of my best tracks on the album, but I must agree that this songs meaning, singing and beat is a timeless masterpiece.

    This album would have been perfect if it didn't include Oh Yes.

    She’s never sounded more ratchet than on “It’s Not Right But It’s Okay” - lyrics, delivery, attitude!

    So much black sass!

    maybe I should listen to this album, cause I love the singles (except My love is your love)

    The album that made me a stan. I always heard her other older classics on the radio but nothing made me get intrigued about her back catalogue. Until this....

    I love the singles, but the album tracks are not that strong IMO.
    That's why I prefer her first three albums more.

    It's Not Right But It's Okay and Heartbreak Hotel are even better in their remixed version. Love those so much! It's a shame though that Heartbreak Hotel wasn't released till after her Greatest Hits had been released in Europe. That's probably why it wasn't as big here as in the US.

    When You Believe: dream duet.

    If I Told You That: wasn't strong enough to be a single IMO, but adding George Michael helped a lot.

    My Love Is Your Love: I loved this song so much right from the start. I wondered if they would dare to release it as a single. I thought it could go two ways as it was so different than anything Whitney had done before and very different than anything else in the charts at that point. So I thought it would either be embraced and become a huge hit or the GP would hate it and it would flop. Luckily it was scenario 1.

    I Learned From The Best: great ballad, love the lyrics.

    The song is ok, but as a child I was annoyed by it and well I think the other singles were much better. Doesn't mean that I think the song is bad or so
