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.

Has the woman in black era ended? (55,033) by Amber C from USA

Since Mariah married Nick she has been wearing black all the time. It started during the E=MC2 era. But suddenly she's back to color, vibrant color. What's up with that? I think this man is needy and depressed. I have a feeling this relationship makes Mariah grateful because she has met someone more moody and sensitive than she is. Where as with Ni... read more

25 things you don't know about me (55,032) by B from USA

Wow, I knew every one of those facts. We don't know that Mariah hasn't been rehearsing. She doesn't have to be in Vegas to rehearse. She could be rehearsing on that yacht.
