Rainbow's End vocals (106,703) by MusicfanJ from Germany
To me it seems brand new. What do the other lambs think? I can't get this song out of my head since yesterday. The new vocals are really good. The song is very uplifting, it feels indeed like a 70ies disco song except for the house parts by Mr. Morales. Mariah and David Morales are always a great working duo. I love all the remixes by him.

Lee, I thought the same with the demo. I like the Mariah only version, but it's funny. I've listenend to the original so many times (since it came out in 99) that I still hear Joe at the second part on the "new" Mariah only version. The human brain does funny things.

Rainbow 25 CD? (106,701) by MusicfanJ from Germany
I would like to know too. But as you said, I only could find the vinyl edition. I was so happy that Music Box 30 was available as a CD.

The Mariah Only TGIFY sounds to me like it was always intended to have featured artists. The new Mariah vocals sound like demo cuts of Mariah indicating what she wants the featured artist to sing.

Just listen to both simultaneously and you can't hear any difference, if anything the enhanced Dolby version is just clearer.

Rainbow's End (106,698) by Jamie from UK
I think Mariah should have done a 3 minute version of Rainbow's End. Added a second verse like the one at the beginning and reduce all the extras and released that version as a single for Pride season

I love TGIFY but I felt like they had no chemistry. I agree that it probably would have been better if it's just Joe. Three artists is a bit of a crowd and on stage, it's even more crowded for her interact with. It's strange how that came about. As far as I know, Mariah's never talked about her collaboration with 98D when all of her collaborations have a story. With that said, I love the song itself, it's actually one of my most played songs in the album when I first had it. Sometimes, I wonder if she will ever add it on her setlist and 98D and Joe show up as a surprise.

I love every single version of the song, including the jazzy one that she performed live a few years ago in Vegas, which she completely slayed by the way.

Rainbow 25 CD? (106,696) by Robert-Anthony from United States
Lol. I am here searching the YouTube comments for the reason why Sony didn't make the CD available for preorder. I can't find a reason why. I can only speculate that CD sales for Music Box and The Rarities must have been low compared to vinyl sales. This is why I miss Fye's Mix and Burn. I could get on their website and create the CD and have shipped to me in 7 days.

The question becomes what do they mean by "original mixing problems"? Does that mean the mixes we've known for 25 years are not what she initially wanted? Are these new mixes what 2024 MC prefers?

I just realized that on Spotify the OG album has been updated with these new mixes and that's annoying. I was listening to the climax note of the Vulnerability interlude and the ending of that sustained note is missing something that was in the OG.

Rainbow 25 CD? (106,694) by Taylor from USA
Does anyone know if there is a Rainbow 25 CD? It seems like the only physical format is the vinyl set.

I feel the exact same way about everything you said. Solo Mariah is much better.

Mariahtrends on X is reporting that MC worked with her engineers to correct original mixing problems for the anniversary release. I always felt that the sound quality was not like Butterfly or Daydream. Did she rush the mixing process as well to be done with Sony?

I understand. After seeing his Tiny Desk performance and hearing that he actually can sing amd improvised so effortlessly live makes me want to hear what he did on Yours. He really can sing.

Yours ft. JT (106,690) by Terna from Nigeria
Honestly, I'm not stoked for a release of the song knowing the back story as to why it never saw the light of day. I'm also never really into her duets or features, since to me those other artists are a distraction. Lol. That's just me though.

Lol I miss the 90s too Jamie. I go back and revisit in my memories, probably too often. Some of my favorite albums and movies are from the 90s. But going to the store to buy the Rainbow CD on release day was such a high feeling. Enjoy the album and your weekend.

Thank you again Tevin. I will definitely enjoy the Rainbow album, reuniting with my husband and a delicious Cuban sandwich on the trip back home. Lol enjoy the weekend and the album as well.

Rainbow's End (106,687) by Robert-Anthony from United States
Agree. I like hip hop MC better than disco queen Mariah. Lol. I think that she and David were going for a beat that the queens could relate to the most since a lot of drag queens love to perform 70s disco songs. A Rainbow End has Sylvester written all over it.

Rainbow 25th Anniversary picture disc vinyl (106,685) by Robert-Anthony from United States
It will be available for any independent record store to order from their regular wholesale distributor. They probably won't be able to order it until 3 weeks before October 18th.

Thank you Tevin, I wish I shared the same sentiment. I do not like Tampa at all, or most of Florida for that fact. Barf. I'm glad you enjoy it and many people do but it's not for me. Sorry my response may be too sincere. Have a great weekend.

After listening to the reissued album last night, I too have a new found appreciation for Rainbow. I absolutely love it. There For Me and it's acapella version? I can't believe it. I'm ecstatic and I love Rainbow's End. Just what we needed for Summer. Feels like 1999 again, not really, but whatever. Have a great weekend. Stream and buy if y'all can. Thank you Mariah.

Does anyone know if the picture disc vinyl will be in independent record stores throughout the country? Like they did with the #1s reissue for Record Day a few years ago? Thanks.

We can finally hear the whole album in a different way. I have a new love for Rainbow now. Tommy was really getting to MC and it is reflected vocally throughout the album. I wonder can a Rainbow documentary be made compiling video footage from 1999-2001.
