DAYDREAM is in my opinion one of Mariahs best albums, or at least her most consistenst album because it does not have a bad song on it! The whole of the album has a very laid back slow pace to it because it is fairly ballad heavy, however there are some good songs on it that offer an upbeat pace.
Daydream contains some of Mariahs most beautiful songs, such as the dreamy UNDERNEATH THE STARS. I can not emphasize enough how much i love this song as it simply drifts over you like a wave, or to use some lyrics from the song, "a warm gently breeze". The words and the music to the song are both perfect and very beautiful and make me feel like i am one of the people she is talking about within the song.
Other beautiful songs include the powerful OPEN ARMS, which gives Mariah a chance to show off some impressive vocals, and the slinky and sexy mid-tempo numbers MELT AWAY and LONG AGO.
There are of course a few upbeat tracks, such as FANTASY which is probably one of her most popular songs and is a great track to open the album with.
The other main singles, ONE SWEET DAY and ALWAYS BE MY BABY are also both brilliant songs. The latter is perhaps not her most experimental song, but it is incredibly catchy and possibly the easiest of her songs to learn the words to. ONE SWEET DAY is yet another of her 'beautiful' songs in which she maages to integrate her vocals brilliantly with Boys to Men, who were of course already harmonized. All the voices on this track work together well to create a wonderful sound.
As i have said, this is one of Mariahs strongest albums and is a well put together collection of songs that i would recomend to anyone who apreciates beautiful songs sung in a beautiful voice.
