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.

Yes Marissa, pinch of salt (46,487) by May from Denmark

I guess we all are informed with the latest, I mean, Mariah in the eye of the hurricane but sometimes it can't be helped, until Mariah comes out with an official statement people can simply opinate, obviously not taking for granted at all the gossip, it comes mostly from webzines and yellowish magazines. There is no denial that a lot is fueled from... read more

Andrew (46,486) by May from Denmark

So after my "brief" (not so short lol woot I made it in just 1500 characters) comment about where it might have started all becoming more about "Mariah" as in... a more obvious way (with the titles and friends names, brand names she likes, etc.) this last album, was not really meant just about her, let's all recall that her album was going to have ... read more
