Encoded 192Kbps mp3. Covers included.
Toni Braxton was one of the most popular and commercially successful female RB
singers of the 90s, thanks to her ability to straddle seemingly opposite worlds.
Braxton was soulful enough for RB audiences, but smooth enough for adult
contemporary; sophisticated enough for adults, but sultry enough for younger
listeners; strong enough in the face of heartbreak to appeal to women, but ravishing
enough to nab the fellas. Wielding such broad appeal, Braxton managed to score not
one, but two albums that sold over eight million copies; naturally, they were
accompanied by along string of hit singles on the pop and RB charts, one of which
Un-break My Heart ranks among the longest-running number one pop hits of the rock
Toni Braxton is both an elegant and earthy songstress, nicely balancing those
seemingly divergent sentiments on her self-titled debut disc. Braxtons husky,
enticing voice sounds hypnotic on Breathe Again, dismayed on Another Sad Love Song,
and disillusioned on Love Shoulda Brought You Home. But shes never out of control,
indignant, or so anguished and hurt that she fails to retain her dignity. Its asign
of how great the Babyface/L.A. Reid production team was that they didnt settle for
adefining mood; they presented Braxton with enough diverse emotional settings to hold
the interest of urban contemporary males and females.
