Trey feels he's 'ready' and gives his all on this record. It's evident on the songs that he writes that he's heavily influenced by R. Kelly, but when someone else takes the pen Trey has his own sound and personality like on his first single "I need a Girl". I have to say that Trey has a great voice but he doesn't explore it and takes the limit that he can, he will have to show me more vocally next time if he is indeed ready! But the album has alot of tracks that could have been absent that drags down what couldve been a great album. Album standouts are Jupiter Love, Be where you Are, Love Lost, Holla if ya need Me, Neighbors know my Name.

Overall rating is 2.5/5 stars!

This album is an instant classic. Ms Houston shows she still has the pipes and flows well on each track with no problem. Whitney didnt try and reach a young crowd and try and stay relevant, she's relevant on her own with her mature material! It has alot of versatility from upbeat tracks, mid-tempo, and power ballads. The only song I didnt really like was 'For the Lovers'. But besides that the record is listenable all the way through and it's good to see such an Icon rise up and come back on top. Album standouts are Million Dollar Bill, I Look To You, Call you Tonight, Worth It, & I didnt know my own Strength. The album gets an overall score of 4.5/5 stars!
