Albums worth the ten bucks
Music consumers have an endless amount of venues to satisfy their music needs. With
legal (and illegal) downloading, satellite radio and used music stores, paying full
price for an album seems almost laughable. Let's face it; music of late hasn't exactly
yielded many trips to the music store. I'll be honest. I have no problem downloading
a song from Bearshare or iTunes, or better yet, OurTunes, where I can copy the music
from the folks in my dorm. The fact is many of today's artists use the 50/50 style for
their albums: 50 percent quality, 50 percent filler. Luckily, the great album isn't
exactly dead. There have been a few albums for which I didn't mind shelling out the
ten bucks. Here are a few of those picks.|
Mariah Carey, "The Emancipation Of Mimi": Yes, the album is a year old. Yes, it has
been released twice. However, no artist had a better year than Mariah. This album was
the best selling of 2005 for obvious reasons. With hits such as "We Belong Together",
"Shake It Off" and "Don't Forget About Us" this is an album for any collection. It's
definitely Mariah at her best, but should only be purchased once.

I'm ready for an uptempo single. I want a club song like "Its like that", "Shake it off", or "Migate". I hope the song "Thirsty" that Mariah talked about in an interview is like this.

I've equally been as baffled by the sings which didn't reach #1 in the UK as well. I'll Be There was constantly on the airwaves at the time, and Mariah did an absolutely stunning rendition of the song on Top of the Pops, almost acapella. Just her, the back up singers and a piano. Absolutely electric performance. AIWFCIY ended up being her biggest s... read more
