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.

Her only competition is and was Whitney Houston. Unlike them she was writing and producing her music which puts her in a different league. Whitney and Celine are/were interpreters of songs and Mari... read more

Lol Abraham (50,541) by Baby from Sweden

I don't know if you even remember this but you once (end of last year?) out of nowhere practically threatened to have my head because of some affront I had supposedly committed against Diane Ernestine Earle Ross in my commentary. I never responded since I hadn't been posting about her and just assumed you had me mixed up with another poster. Come ... read more

Mariah vs Celine (50,540) by Jon from Netherlands

Everybody is comparing voices but nobody is comparing arm choreography. Mariah's is way better. All classic moves, including the "wax on" and the "squeeze and shake vigorously imaginary object and then throw it to the side while running on stage" or the "petting of an imaginary elephant". It's all very theatrical and half the experience for me. Now... read more
