Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Mariah Carey is back from the dark side, and it's time for fans of R&B infused power ballads to rejoice. In fine voice, Carey kicks off Charmbracelet (so named because "life is like a charm bracelet that you keep adding to") with the aptly titled "Through the Rain", a thrilling testament to her new-found personal equilibrium which continues in a suitably breathy vein.

Adding an early 90s hip-hop aesthetic to the traditional Carey formula, "Boy", featuring Cam'Ron and "You Got Me", featuring Jay Z, are filled with muted drum-rolls and tight, tingling guitar loops. "My Saving Grace" opens with dramatic piano and Hammond licks but certainly isn't an "I Will Survive" anthem. If she has come through the rain, Carey is obviously still feeling fragile. But she does do the rescued and vulnerable persona quite well. --Ruby Tuesday

5.0 out of 5 stars Mariah's back on form with comeback album 23 Nov 2002
By Darren
Format:Audio CD
After a year of bad press, Mariah has shut herself away recording her 12th album 'Charmbracelet' and shes delivered some great songs. Comeback single 'Through the rain' sets the pace of what to expect. Along the same lines are the beautiful ballad 'My saving grace' and a cover of Def Leppard's 'Bringing on the heartbreak'. Another standout track is the upbeat 'The one' featuring Jermaine Dupri. Out of the fifteen songs there is not one bad track. If you have ever been a fan of Mariah Carey's, ignore what you have read about her and judge for yourself with the music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Welcome Back Mariah! 4 Jan 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
A very welcome comeback from the most successful female artist of the 90's! Although I am a huge fan of the diva, I have to admit Glitter failed to impress. But Charmbracelet has restored my faith in Mariah....well, almost! It did take awhile for me to really get into the album, which was never the case with pre-Glitter albums. But now there is not one song on the CD that I don't like. The highlights for me have to be Bringin' On The Heartbreak, My Saving Grace, Through The Rain and You Got Me, a selection representing both the old Mariah and the new. She evens manages to dig Eminem in Clown...listen to it and you'll see what I mean.
So now to the downside. As I've said, there are some really great songs on the CD. But Mariah's adopted a different style of singing in her last 2 /3 albums. She sings every song in a higher tone, all the way through. It's quite hard to explain but if you compare Charmbracelet to any of the earlier CDs you understand what I'm saying. It lacks the true strength and range of Mariah's voice. To be honest, listening to Vision of Love and Someday, then Through The Rain (or any other song on Charmbracelet) it really does sound like a completely different person.
But nevertheless, Mariah still has a truly unique voice and the album still reflects this. True, Charmbracelet isn't going to provide Mariah with any timeless classics, such as Hero, My All, Fantasy etc but it does make great listening and I would recommend any Mariah fan adds it to their collection. It is a fresh and well-awainted return and I predict that things are only going to get better!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Carey's Charming release 12 Nov 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
No matter what you think of Mariah Carey, the woman can sing. She is classed as the greatest singer of our generation. Carey no longer has to prove that she can belt hits out, and although on 'Charmbracelet' Carey still sounds like gold she doesn't provide 24:7 power house vocals. This is not saying that she can no longer sing in that way because on 'Through the rain' and 'My Saving grace' Carey's powerhouse lungs are at their best. Anyway, this album was never intended to show an already convinced world that Carey can sing, instead its aim is to put Carey back on the musical map after her 2001 flop 'Glitter'.
Carey as penned some extremely personal songs for this record, like the debut single 'Through the Rain' which talks about her recovery after her breakdown. 'My Saving Grace' is a touching track where Carey talks about her life, "Yes I've been bruised, grew up confused, I've seen life from many sides...". Fans of Mariah's RnB/hip-hop side won't be disappointed, Up beat tracks like 'Boy (I need you)', 'You Got Me' and 'Irritable' are classic examples are Carey's trademark Dance / hip-hop / RnB mix. If your having any doubts about this album remember Jay-Z, Cam'ron, Freeway and many more have all spent time working with Mariah on this album!
This album will please any Mariah fan as it has all the elements that has made her the BIGGEST SELLING FEMALE ARTIST IN HISTORY. Even if your not a Mariah fan you'd be surprised at how much this album grows on you. I recommend it to anyone. She's done it again!

5.0 out of 5 stars "Charmbracelet" - The Best Album of 2002! 25 Dec 2002
Format:Audio CD
"Charmbracelet" is one of Mariah Carey's best albums to date. When there are 15 tracks on a record and you have 14 favorites (the extra one being the lead single) - you know it's a hit.
There has been too much talk about Mariah's so-called "comeback". This album screams "I've never left and I am here to stay!" From inception, to the lyrics and melodies, the production and finally the mesmerizing voice - this whole albums is perfection. This album is amazingly consistent, each new track is on par with its predecessor. Even "small things" like the sequence the tracks were placed on the album and vocal arrangements are perfect.
Mariah's "charms" as she refers to them, take us "Through The Rain" and onto the catchy "Boy (I Need You)" which plays to the beat of a recently popular Cam'ron song, and even features him. A rhymically soothing R&B track fills the air. Then we get other fantastic tunes by a group of producers who need no introduction, such as Jermaine Dupri, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, and American Idol's very own Randy Jackson. Some of the other songs on this CD include a gospel track that stirs your emotion, a latin ballad, a bittersweet ode to her deceased father and even a track recorded with a live band. "Charmbracelet" has it all.
Of course, with keeping the Mariah tradition alive, the best is yet to come. A mid-tempo number that has of late been rumored to be a diss at Eminem, "Clown" has an unmatchable combination of lyrics and a unique singing style, that if performed by any other could never be pulled off. A personal favorite of mine is the dazzling remake to the 1981 hit "Bringin' On The Heartbreak" by none other than Def Leppard. Mariah brings new life to this song with breathtaking vocals, this track is a sure hit.
Bottom line - if you're a fan of GOOD music and/or talented artists - get "Charmbracelet". You won't regret it.
