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.

G.G. (45,676) by Mimi L. from

Hey where did you hear about the relaunch? I can't seem to find it anywhere. If she did tweet it, I wonder why she deleted it. If she does relaunch it, I will be happy. I was not being able to digest the fact that Mariah is letting her (what critics and fans are calling one of her greatest albums) just die out without trying to save it. But if she ... read more

Divorce (45,675) by Butterfly from United States

He hasn't posted anything about her on Facebook either. Well he does have Robin Thick and Howard Stern as friends and carries a pimp cane. He seemed like such a good guy too. If these divorce rumors are true I hope he will be a gentleman and not air their dirty laundry. This is reminding me of Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher in that he married an att... read more
