    Her voice sounds just a touch different, maybe just older.

    eh, I love Whitney, but this song doesn't work for me. Aside from the lyrics being cheesy (and seriously, if Brittney can get the sound designers she has for those beats, don't see why Whitney has such a flat song).

    Also, this is a power ballad, and well, Whitney can't hit those notes anymore. I think this song would be saved being performed by the like of Christina or someone who could really belt it. I still like Whitney's voice, but she needs better songs to complement it.

    hmm - the lyrics are cheesy but seeing what she's been through over the last decade - def reflective of where she stands today.

    Will be interesting to watch the publics reaction to it and the "Whitney is back" blitz that will probably ensue

    I'm not certain what I am feeling about this track. Perhaps I'm not feeling it.

    I think it is one of those songs that will grow on you the more you hear it, and something tells me we will be hearing it a lot. Radio has been hungry for the long-awaited Whitney comeback for years, and a song with lyrics (cheesy as they may be) that showcase her struggles and downfall will probably serve her well in that comeback attempt. I love Whitney, so I'm rooting for her all the way.

    The song doesn't have a strong enough melody for my taste. It sounds choppy and unfocused.

    Disappointing. The lyrics suck. The melody isn't original, and the hook doesn't draw you in. It's definitely not a "first single" winner. It sounds more like a song that never should have made the album.

    I've gotta give it to Whitney. To attempt another record in this type of vocal shape--she's a shadow of her former self--you've gotta have guts. She does, evidently. She tries to "bring it" in this song, but she fails. icon_cry.gif

    This song will garner much attention in live venues and on video. People will watch her every facial nuance as she works her way through the lyrics. Hopefully, some of the accumulated tar and nicotine buildup will clear from her vocal chords with time...still, she has a bit of the sound of Randy Crawford, now.icon_neutral.gif

    ...and, yes, those are heart strings opening the song.

    I was so excited to hear Whitney has something new. When I think of the '80's Whitney definitely brings a smile to my face.

    I'm curious to hear the rest of this album. The song didn't work for me and her voice certainly sounded more mature and a touch raspy, ( it might just be the song though).

    I was craving for her to let loose and belt it out "Whitney style".

    She still THE BEST SINGER out there, u can not deny it, she is getting rave reviews, unfortunately da peeps on here are not as accepting for some reason. It's a very positive song, and no artist out there can sing it, as well as Whitney. Let da 80's go...no artist will sound da same 25 yrs lata icon_lol.gif

    That's a dumb thing to say. Technically, Christina and Celine are far superior. Even at 67, Barbra can still hit higher notes. Whitney now has that marijuana voice and she'll never sound great again. At the grammys she was still trashed out of her mind and could barely speak coherently.

    Agreed...

    Plus the true litmus test is hearing it live. We'll wait and see.

    Good Luck Ms. H.

    sounds like the crack pipe did some damage....

    will probably make her millions tho.... 80s retro acts seem to be able to do that.

    Do you recall when Mariah released "I Can Make it Through the Rain". It was orignally released as a ballad as well until it was remixed and it also got mixed reviews. Knowing Clive Davis there will be a remix of this song.

    I actually love it because it speaks to what she went through. The Diva is back Thanks Girl.

Also, its a very positive song, uplifting, and i anticipate negative people not liking this type of music, bcuz they love being down trodden.icon_twisted.gif The Cd is phenomenal tho, i can not wait.icon_biggrin.gif

    While you guys are Whitney bashing isn't the important thing that she is back to making the music.

    If that whack job Britney could do it why not Whitney. You haven't even heard the cd or the remixes this is something released on YouTube for lordy sakes.

    The voices of: Mariah, Christina, Celine, and Barbara's and Whitney's they are sooo different, their styles are different as well as their training and it does them all a disservice to compare them.
    Please believe Barbara is not hitting the same notes at 67 that she hit when she was 30 why should she.

    How negative you all are. It's amazing to me how some of us as humans would take fiendish delight at person’s failures rather than their success.
    Even if Whitney’s voice isn’t the same, she could still out sing any of you nay sayers on her worst day.
