Entertainment Weekly
Easily the worst song on Secrets and therefore worth lingering over for a second, ”Un-Break My Heart” (produced by Foster, so Babyface is guilt-free) is one of those the-verses-exist-only-for-the-swelling-chorus showstoppers that allude to emotions without ever actually embodying them. […]

Robert Christgau
Front-loaded with five pieces of sexy rocket fuel, including a miraculous Diane Warren ballad you’ll want to hear again–the miracle being that it’s by Diane Warren and you want to hear it again. […]

allmusic
Braxton is a singer who can cross over into the smooth confines of adult contemporary radio without losing or betraying the soul that lies at the foundation of her musicand her talent burns at its brightest on Secrets. […]
