Rainbow's End (106,678) by Nick G from Germany
I love the song. But MC doesn't sing much. Sounds more like a disco song by the Whether Girls [sic]. Whatever. Happy Pride and let Mariah become the Queen of Pride.

After Tonight, Heartbreaker remix, There For Me (106,677) by Tevin from USA
The updated sound quality is amazing. I heard clearer vocals on Thank God I Found You (with Joe), that sounds amazing.

There For Me. Finally.

Rainbow 25 (106,675) by BFF from United States
I like this "Mariah Only" version of "Thank God I Found You." It provides new insight into the recording process for the single and demonstrates that the song was complete before she decided to add the guest artists.

I've always liked the album version of the song (prefer it to the remix version) and thought it deserved to be a bigger hit than it was. It went to #1 but mostly based on single sales, not radio airplay. Maybe it would've worked better as a duet with Joe without 98 Degrees?

I think the Make It Last version worked best in its iteration without the rap from Nas, but it feels more like a cover of "Make it Last Forever" than a remix of Mariah's song. There are very few elements of the original song in the remix.

Rainbow 25 (106,674) by Terna from Nigeria
"There for me" finally has been released officially. I noticed that on the Mariah Only version of TGIFY, there's distortion, it's like the master tape was wrinkled in some areas. All in all this feels really like a 2nd take done right. The original recording to me always had this rushed feel to it and was mastered poorly, matter of fact Rainbow out of all her albums is the only one that comes across as half baked. She wasn't in a good place physically, vocally and emotionally and that's reflected on the record. Just for the nostalgia however, I would always love it. It was my first Mariah Carey CD. Lol. I recall it all too well, I bought it alongside Shola Ama's "In Return".

25 vs 30 (106,673) by Jamie from UK
I wonder why Mariah chose to celebrate some albums at 25 years and others at 30 years. I would love for her to have celebrated the debut and Emotions albums, I wonder why she didn't.

After Tonight, Heartbreaker remix, There For Me (106,672) by RL from USA
Sounds like the sound/volume issues from the original version have been fixed on the remastered version of After Tonight. And on the Heartbreaker remix, I heard extra whispers in the beginning that I hadn't heard on the one released back in '99. Nice to have There For Me digitally.

Rainbow 25 (106,669) by jaker20 from US
He's been bitter since 1997 but it only came to light when Rainbow was released. He thought Mariah was nothing without him so when the album came out and she seem to be doing just fine and giving no feks about him and then back in the dating game is probably when he started puling those strings in the background.

Remaster who? (106,668) by Robert-Anthony from United States
But it is Dolby Atmos though. The best sound technology today.

Remaster who? (106,667) by Edward from USA
Ever since digital audio remastering became common, the usual approach has been to simply crank up the volume. In some cases, this remastering process can strip away the original feel that some albums once had. If remastering cleans and improves the audio quality, such as in recordings where static noise is prevalent, I'm all for it. However, if it merely increases the volume, I don't see the point.

I'm more excited about the remixes and the possibility of new tracks.

Rainbow 25 (106,666) by Robert-Anthony from United States
MC was a very confident 30 year old to stand up to Sony. Not too many 30 year old female artists would decide to cut ties with a major company like Sony after unparalled success. I wonder why Tommy gave MC such hard time during the whole Rainbow era. Why was he still mad in 1999 when he granted MC a divorce after hearing Butterfly in 1997? Was he bitter because MC was dating Luis Miguel and working with David Foster? Questions here in Texas waiting for midnight.

I'm super exited about the track list. Well at least the 6 new songs I don't have in my collection already. I was hoping for more unreleased and rare tracks. It will still be fire.

I just saw a full bonus track list of Rainbow25 posted on Mariah Report. I don't know if it's legit but seems plausible. I see a version of "Thank God I Found You" with Mariah only and two different versions of "Rainbow's End" listed. I wonder if Mariah recorded a ballad version of "Rainbow's End" in addition to the house version with David Morales.

How Much remix (106,657) by lighty from China
If I remember correctly, How Much was supposed to be the third single from Rainbow but Mariah wanted CTTA instead.

Article: Mariah Carey's "Rainbow" gets remastered (106,655) by Mimi L. from Empower Your Highlighter
I agree. Case in point WBT. She was ready to submit the album, but went back with JD and wrote it in a day. Also she said the iconic climax was on the spot her trying to impress the suits and she gave it her all. Same with some of her other songs from TEOM like ILT, SIO. She should take it easy and let her magic do the work.

Article: Mariah Carey's "Rainbow" gets remastered (106,654) by Jamie from UK
I sometimes feel Mariah spends too much time on projects, perfecting them. Sometimes the best ideas are sporadic. And analyzing and perfecting things can sometimes take away from the original idea. I also think when you analyse something over and over something that isn't that great from the start can almost feel better after becoming over familiar with it. It's like when a song is released from her that isn't that great and after a while you learn to love it as you have become over familiar with it. I bet most of her big hits were all in the moment songs that were great from the offset.
