At this point, I'm expecting something similar to Caution, but with 14 tracks instead of 10. It'll be more polished and with some vocal moments here and there. To be honest, in spite of its lack of vocal moments, I enjoyed Caution way more than what I enjoyed MIAM.

Come on, Robert-Anthony, you're stronger than that. Just because someone doesn't want you posting that much, it doesn't mean you have to comply. They just have to stop reading your posts, period. If it weren't for you and some others, with the lack of news from Mariah's camp, the board would be basically mute. So, keep on posting and don't pay him any mind.

Some people on this board are getting to be so effing sensitive, it's off putting. Sometimes it seems as if Janet has exposed her nipple again and we have to crucify her all over again, messaboard style. It's just an effing nipple (opinion), get over it, rismurfingdiculous!

I'm not saying Mariah never sung a wonderful performance live, she did, many many many times, but the bulk of official performances were definitely doctored. Let's not fool ourselves here.

She doesn't lip-sync (99,612) by Edward from USA
(Wednesday 2 February 2022; 23:33)
Dubbing, mixing or re-recording, is a post-production process used in filmmaking and video production in which additional or supplementary recordings are lip-synced and "mixed" with original production sound to create the finished product. (At Madisson Square Garden.)

Mariah is very well known for dubbing, mixing or re-recording all her video performances. To the point where she actually might have sung live at certain events, but then magically we have these perfect vocals that came out of nowhere. I've been to at least three of those video performances and can tell the differences, and no, they never took one whole take, they pick and patched the performance together, and sometimes very little of what was sung live that day.

I was present six row when she sang "With You I'm Born Again", and that performance I can say for sure it was 100% live, and she sung it three times, no to take necessarily the best parts, but because they wanted different camera angles to make the performance more interesting.

When Mariah performed the Star Spangle Banner at the Super Bowl, she would've gotten away with it being live, had she not lipped out of sync the the last word. It was so evident, and that gave her up. That performance was very quickly fixed and now we have it synched, but if you look closely, you can still see it.

So, the blindest person is that who doesn't want to see.

Not dealing with the stress and pressure of being on the road is doing good to Mariah on a personal level, hopefully her voice has benefited from that too. To be honest, I'm not excited about any remakes from the Butterfly album, but I'm definitely excited about new music.

She probably already reached out to him and have the song ready for "The Rarities 2". There must be some gems from the 90's that were discarded. The leftovers from the 2000's are not as polished though.

It was not properly released. It was "leaked", but it hasn't ever been available for download anywhere. The same with "Help Me Make It".

I think Mariah will release "The Rarities 2" first, and it is a good strategy. In the meantime she should keep on perfecting whatever music she's been working on. At this point we want quality and quantity, since it's been such a long time. How could she have hidden a track like "One Night" for so long? I would also like to hear the alternate version of "All In Your Mind" she let us hear when she opened the vault. I'm loving the silence on Mariah's camp, that's the way she used to be. Let us crave her music.

Looking at the songs on Billbord that AYNAF was competing with on its chart run, I can understand why it only made it that far. It's not that the song was lacking in anything, it's just that the competition was tough back. The 90's was simply a great decade for music.

Re: How Greatest Hits should've played out (99,455) (99,460) by Edward from USA
(Tuesday 18 January 2022; 00:54)
Since most people don't collect anymore, greatest hits albums are pointless, unless a few new non-rushed quality tracks are added. In the digital era, anybody can create their own Greatest Hits. For me it was sacrilege staining the #1's album with crap like Crapfinity. Different from when #1's was originally released, with quality tracks like "When You Believe", "I Still Believe", "Whenever You Call" and "Do You Know Where You're Going to". Even her remixes were worthy of being on the album, like "I Still Believe Pure Imagination". I've been thinking for a while that Mariah's heart is not in music anymore, all that is evidenced by her non-album collabos between between projects. Even for an album like The Rarities, she couldn't come up with a decent new track. The Rarities 2 would be amazing, even though she said there were no leftovers from the Butterfly sessions, but I'm pretty sure there are many other great tracks like "One Night". A Jazz album would be cool, but a Gospel album, well, she doesn't have the voice for that anymore. You can't whisper a whole Gospel album. I'm excited for the new music though, I just hope she at least blow on some songs.

Music Box was a 10-track album. The international version had "Everything Fades Away", but the official version only had 10 tracks. If the tracks are great, 10 tracks is great. I prefer Caution over MIAM any day. MIAM was full of fillers and missed opportunities at having some great tracks.

I've always loved "Lil Love". See, that's what you call a great collabo even when there were four acts on it. I played it so much I thought the mp3 was going to get corrupted, lol. I still listen to it every now and then. I also love "One and Only Part II", but I prefer the version on Twista's album.

Re: Article: Mariah Carey announces her first children's book (99,415) (99,417) by Edward from USA

It is. I can't wait so we all could read it here on the messageboard. Maybe little Mariah comes with outfit changes. If it came with cardboard wigs and weaves, I would die. She should cancel the new album, this news is to die for. A Christmas book on January, Genius! If by any chance Roc and Roe and Mary Ann Tatum's son happen to appear on the book, now that would be so refreshing and new. Wait a minute, if little Mariah is on high heels on the book, the LGBTQ+ community would definitely add MC at the end of their acronym. The way things are looking, soon the whole alphabet will be on it anyway.

Re: Never Forget You (99,373) (99,375) by Edward from USA
(Wednesday 5 January 2022; 03:35)
I haven't ever seen Walter as a savior or anything, but one thing we can say it's the fact they had great chemistry and it translated into whatever they collaborated in. Mariah and Walter created music that by themselves they haven't been able to replicate. It's like the perfect cast for a TV show. The only times Mariah has kind of recreated some of that feel is when she's written the bulk of the songs herself. While Mariah has had success after Walter, Walter has also had success after Mariah too. Artist usually are at the forefront, and producers and writers are actually on the background, and nobody ever mentions them.

She hinted she would do something with it, as in recording it. In one of those twitter conversations, she was asked about it. She also said there were no leftovers from "Butterfly" sessuibs that's why there wasn't anything from that era on "The Rarities". Probably she was being forgetful about "Where Are You Christmas" and she actually recorded it. According to Wikipedia, she recorded the song but couldn't release it due to a legal case with Tommy.

Sadly, there's no demo, according to Mariah. Listening to Faith Hill, it's evident that Mariah wrote it and maybe even produced it. Mariah best non album/soundtrack collabo to me is "Everytime I Close My Eyes", and she just did background. Had it been a duet, it would've been amazing. I love that song and her input in it.

I think Mariah should leave her classics alone, unless she's going to make accoustic versions of them. If a song won't be improved upon or made into an acoustic version, I don't see the point in ramaking them. When she took on "Hero" again about 7 years after its release, the outcome was madiocre at best and that was 20 years ago. Maybe I'm being pessimistic, but too much hype for nothing lately.

The song has gone to #1 because the general public likes it, and it's a good thing. The lambs left don't have any control over its position on the charts anymore, if they had, an awesome album like "The Rarities" would've sold millions. Two years in a row going to #1 is a great accomplishment, the song has legs of its own, it doesn't depend on Mariah of the lambs where it will go.
