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.

Sometimes she'll give her a compliment but it's usually backhanded. Like when she was suggesting Mariah belonged in tampon covered Atlantic City. I found read more

Signature song / Stacey (48,587) by Edward from USA

I think that Mariah's signature song is definitely "AIWFCIY". Different from Celine's "MHWGO" and Whitney's "IWALY", "AIWFCIY" returns every year to be exposed not only to those of us who experienced it when it first became popular, but also for those from a different generation who might not be interested in Mariah's music, but who will inevitably... read more

Baby (48,586) by Bill from UK

Baby, huge thank you for posting the acoustic AIWFCIY. That was incredible. I think those unheard ad libs will be from the original '94 session, as they are in keeping with the original, and also the "I don't need nobody else" ad lib was used in the Low Sunday dance remix which came out in 2008/09 (I forget when). Loved the jazzy kind of scatting s... read more
