    Though she can no longer hit the high notes, this diva still has an amazing voice. Too bad that most of tracks contain forgettable middle-of-the road material. She deserved better for a supposed "comeback" album.

  1. Whitney Houston's first album in seven years, doesn't pretend to offer the unblemished 21-year-old we met on her smash 1985 debut, but it never?truly lets listeners inside the heart and head of the woman she is today.
  2. Though I Look to You doesn't soar like the old days, it's fine to hear Houston working on her own recovery plan.
  3. For the most part, I Look to You manages to sound completely contemporary without the use of guest rappers, dumbed-down lyrics, or slang.
