Platinum & Gold Collection

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jason Birchmeier
BMG Heritage released Toni Braxton's Platinum & Gold Collection in 2004, a good time for a sweeping roundup of the singer's bounty of hits from the mid-'90s. Her once chart-topping career had gone from red-hot to a bare simmer by this point. Her last substantial hit, "He Wasn't Man Enough for Me" from her lukewarm album The Heat, had come in 2000, and her two subsequent albums -- Snowflakes 2001 and More Than a Woman 2002 -- had failed to spawn any substantial hits of their own. This dry spell, which sans "He Wasn't Man Enough for Me" stretches all the way back to 1997, is a stark contrast to the mid-'90s, when she was regularly scaling the charts with huge hits ...

BMG Heritage released Toni Braxton's Platinum & Gold Collection in 2004, a good time for a sweeping roundup of the singer's bounty of hits from the mid-'90s. Her once chart-topping career had gone from red-hot to a bare simmer by this point. Her last substantial hit, "He Wasn't Man Enough for Me" from her lukewarm album The Heat, had come in 2000, and her two subsequent albums -- Snowflakes 2001 and More Than a Woman 2002 -- had failed to spawn any substantial hits of their own. This dry spell, which sans "He Wasn't Man Enough for Me" stretches all the way back to 1997, is a stark contrast to the mid-'90s, when she was regularly scaling the charts with huge hits like "Another Sad Love Song," "Breathe Again," "You Mean the World to Me," "Un-break My Heart," and "You're Making Me High," to just list her biggest crossover hits. This Platinum & Gold Collection rounds up and remasters most of those more substantial hits from Braxton's past, in the process showcasing just how many great songs she'd recorded back in the mid-'90s, when she was among the biggest of big stars. However, there's a catch -- this isn't a be-all, end-all compilation of Braxton's greatest hits. It includes only 12 songs, and a few of them are latter-day middling hits, namely "A Better Man" and "Hit the Freeway," the two token inclusions from More Than a Woman. These songs are good, but they're not great, especially relative to songs like, say, "You're Making Me High," one of Braxton's best and one that's unfortunately missing here a very glaring omission. So while Braxton's Platinum & Gold Collection is a nice compilation -- one that includes many of her most memorable hits and does so in first-rate fashion, in terms of remastering as well as packaging -- it's a compilation that is sure to leave you unsatisfied. You'd be better off spending the extra money to pick up a more definitive collection like the 18-track Ultimate Toni Braxton from 2003 than this 50-minute budget-line CD.
