Format: Audio CD
Mariah Carey was one of the most successful pop singers of the nineties. Although by no means my favorite decade when it comes to pop music, even I am aware that some great music was recorded during the nineties, some of it by Mariah. This compilation includes all her important American hits up to Against all odds, in almost chronological order. The sole exception to the chronological order is All I want for Christmas is you, which is not here in its original form. A re-mix is included as a bonus track at the end of the second CD. I'm glad that it has been put at the end of a CD instead of being part of the chronological order, because while I listen to Christmas music at any time of year, a lot of people don't like hearing Christmas music out of season. Those people can stop the CD at the end of the last of Mariah's normal hits here.

Mariah wrote the vast majority of the songs here, proving herself to be an accomplished songwriter as well as a fine singer, but she also scored huge hits with covers of I'll be there (originally an international hit for the Jackson 5), Without you (written and first recorded by Badfinger, but an international chart-topper for Harry Nilsson), Endless love (originally a huge international hit for Diana Ross and Lionel Richie - Mariah duets with Luther Vandross here) and Against all odds (written by Phil Collins, for whom it was a huge international hit).

Brits may be disappointed at the exclusion of Open arms, which was a UK top five hit for Mariah but was not a hit for her in America. It is a cover of a song that was a huge American hit for Journey about ten years earlier, but the original didn`t do much business in the UK.

As Carey faces an uncertain future we are reminded of just why she was the top selling female artist of the 90's.
This greatest hits compilation could easily be missed by fans, considering the #1's compilation (which covers much of the same ground) was only released in 1999. However, after just a glimpse of the tracklisting you realise just how much impact Carey had on the musicworld during the 90's.
Carey showcases her raw talent and naiveity on early tracks such as 'Vision of Love', 'Hero' and 'Dreamlover' pleasing both consumers and record co. executives while gaining momentum and credibilty. Restraint, diversity and independence shines through further into the CD with more R&B influenced tracks ('Honey' and 'Heartbreaker') while duets with Whitney Houston, Boys II Men and Luther Vandross exhibits her might within the Pop/R&B genre.
This Greatest Hits compilation displays Careys graduation from Pop Princess to R&B Diva. Yet she is still able to shift effortlessly from slick, hook-filled R&B tracks like 'Fantasy' to powerful ballads such as ''My All'. Even if you're not a fan of her music there are songs here that you can't help but remember and hum along to - despite all efforts to the contrary. Fans of old and new are treated to a double CD filled with catchy pop-tunes, commanding ballads and smooth R&B grooves.
Mariah Carey found a formula that worked. Although she currently struggles to find a place which both pleases herself and the record-buying public there is no doubting the firm grasp she has... or had... on the charts from 1990 and into the new millenium.

This album is a collection of the highlights of Mariah's 11 yr reign as one of the world's leading divas. It may not make much of a difference to the die-hard Carey fan, but it is an essential for any admirer who doesn't own all her previous albums.
The 2 disc set contains all her biggest hits and will take you on a musical journey through the 1990's from early classics like 'Vision of Love' and 'I Don't Wanna Cry'(both songs still sound so amazing) to "middle Mariah" hits like 'Dreamlover', 'Anytime You Need A Friend' and 'One Sweet Day' to her funkier hip-hop tunes from the late '90s like 'Honey', 'Sweetheart' and 'Heartbreaker'.
One of the reasons why this album seems to be slightly better than her previous Greatest Hits package 'No. 1's' is that all her singles are included, not just the number one hits. Also, you have the singles from the 'Rainbow' album which are real gems, especially the ballads.
All in all, a nice well-rounded package which is a good showcase statement for what made Mariah Carey one of the biggest selling artists of the last decade.

As a massive mariah fan I was always going to love this. Features all of her best music, and some that were before my time. The only criticism is that it doesn't have the original All i want for Christmas song but a not so great remix.

This must be the best of the various Maria Carey's "greatest hits" out there. The download quality is excellent. There are even some tracks I had never heard of before.Will recommend.
