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.

As for SIO, yes I know WBT was blocking SIO so SIO didn't get its chance and I also agree that had It been released a bt later, it definitely would have gone to #1. Nothing could have stopped it.

Thank you so much for this. I've never heard this version before. This is very rare.

I hope / Nick (52,025) by George Golden from UK

I hope Mariah's new single is not a "part 2" of any song please. If she is going to have another top ten it has to be something outside of the box. I know it's a hard thing for her and its frustrating. I hope it's a big uptempo number. Those bouncy rnb numbers while they are great don't really do much chartwise. I hope she has learnt her lesson.
