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.

by Lee TS from USA

It seems like Damion was a great friend to her and I hope she finds great memories when thinking about him. I hope Mariah releases a memoir one day or a mini series as she likes... read more (Saturday 30 May 2015; 21:47)
Mariah's being honest (53,917)
by Deedre aka MiTodoChop @HBF from Canada
She's been vocal about not liking much about her early music videos for years now. I think it's kind of funny that people are "shocked" by the rants. Maybe the general public that doesn't pay attention to any of her specials or interviews, but to anyone else? She's said the same types of things several times over in various things. She's not raggin... read more (Saturday 30 May 2015; 21:40)
For the love (53,916)
by Jono from USA
It is clear that Mariah Carey is doing music because it is for the love. Echoing what many people have said on here, she no longer needs to prove herself. She said in a pre-Vegas interview, that in the 90s it was all about her career and her fear that the rug might be pulled out from underneath her and she'd be back living the difficult life she wo... read more (Saturday 30 May 2015; 21:21)
