Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
It was inevitable that Whitney Houston would be subjected to a greatest-hits album after her untimely spring 2012 death, and I Will Always Love You: The Best of Whitney Houston is the first of these, an 18-track collection containing two new songs -- a duet version of "I Look to You" with R. Kelly vocals, and the unreleased, Jermaine Dupri-written "Never Give Up," which isn't bad -- but concentrates on her big hits, emphasizing the oversized show-stopping ballads just slightly.
