Whitney Houston's Peak - by Sam Nas
Age: 20 (in 1998)
Album Reviewed: The Bodyguard
I love everything about this album from the songs, til the beautiful cover and design!
I Will Always Love You-When I first heard the song, I was stunned. When I now hear the song, I still am stunned. Her vocals are unbelievable. The song is so emotional and powerful. I love the way she changes octaves while singing. This is truly a classic that will be treasured for decades to come (centuries!!!).
I Have Nothing-I love it when Whitney sings with power. This is as powerful as anything can get! I love the dramatic way she sings it. I also love the way Whitney sings this song live and how she gets the public cheering and giving standing ovations! This is a classic, that's for sure.
I'm Every Woman-There's absoluetly & positively no one on this earth who can sing this song better. If someone were to make a remake of this song, I would laugh before hearing it! Her voice is so clear, soulful and powerful, and the song is not that bad too!!!
Run To You-It's a very nice song. I like it a little less then the first 2 ballads on the album, but I think David Foster did a wonderful job producing it.
Queen Of The Night-Cool, with an attitude & different. This is the song that reminds me most of the movie. At the time, I was surprised that it wasn't the single chosen to be released after "I Will Always Love You".
Jesus Loves Me-Her first gospel song. Whitney's voice is so clear on this one.
The other non-WH songs on the album are great too. I love them all, especially "It's Gonna Be A Lovely Day" by the Soul System. The Bodyguard theme is cool too and makes remember the movie.
This album in my opinion is the peak of Whitney Houston as a singer and it will always be one of my favourites album of all time (if not THE favourite...). I am hoping for a sequal movie & soundtrack!!!
