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.

I think having 2 successful Christmas albums with possibly the most ... read more (Monday 3 August 2015; 14:43)

I agree with everything you just posted. Lol I was OK with waiting for new music since she has so much going on, but since she's in the studio doing something I won't except any remixes of Infinity/Thirsty or AIWFCIY or any other Christmas song. I don't want. Lol. (Monday 3 August 2015; 13:53)
