5.0 out of 5 stars Carey, Carey. Quite contrary 8 Dec 2009
Format:MP3 Download
A great constructed CD. Full of great songs. Mariah evolves with each new CD. Top of the tree as a vocalist. The other imposters drift in her wake. Listen and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars My best Artist in the world 3 July 2009
Format:Audio CD
Best Artist, I got all her albums. Mariah Carey is my very best Artist in the world. I always listen, and dance sing along to it. Her previous albums have been the best one. I hope that her new album - Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel will be the best one.

I will listen my new Album - Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel, over and over and over and over again and I dance and sing along to it.

Mariah Carey always looks beautiful in her Albums.
I will be the first one to get it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't be put off by first listen - this is a slow-burning masterpiece! 10 Oct 2009
By Mathew A. Crane - Published on
Format:Audio CD
OK - so let's clear things up. Is this the best Mariah album of all-time?...probably not, but don't be confused by some negative press, slack first week sales or even first impressions. This is a slow-burning hit! After a few listens you stop obsessing about how this isn't a typical Mariah album and begin to appreciate this as possibly her most cohesive body of work since her debut. This is a superby crafted album, with each story interwoven via interludes and repeated phrases to create a consistent piece of artistic expression. What initially comes across as everything sounding the same - after a couple of listens reveals each song as one chapter (or memoir) in Mariah's love/life story and is exceptional. So it's not the same as everything else she's done - true - and if it had of been would she have been criticized for trying to recreate Mimi?
While some tracks feel more album filler than floor filler - there are some perfectly crafted songs which resonate with warmth, cutting homour, sarcasm and heartbreak - indeed it seems ironic that Mariah would write the best break-up album of her career (with the arguable exception of Butterfly) when she is happily married! Stand-out tracks are "Betcha Gon Know" (possibly the classiest slice of R & B Carey has ever produced), "Obsessed" and it's slightly darker sister track "Standing O", "H.A.T.E.U", "Inseperable", the superb "Up Out My Face" (which is a sure-fire number 1 if marketed correctly) and "Angels Cry" - in my opinion the best Mariah ballad we've heard in years. With every song concentrating on love and heartbreak - the only thing the album lacks is an anthem. Carey's ability to write universal songs of inspiration and reflection such as Make it Happen, Hero, Can't take that away (Mariah's theme), Close My Eyes and so on have often been the tracks that have been most requested and most treasured by her adoring fan base, and the lack of one on "Memoirs" is noticeably absent.
Ultimately - this album may not sell what it deserves to as people may surf the samples once and not re-listen, which would be a great shame. For my money, Mariah has written, sung and co-produced a bravely different album which deserves high-ranking status in her back-catalogue, and once again proves that Carey's platinum voice and under-rated song-writing deserves it's already cemented place in music history.

4.0 out of 5 stars MARIAH didn't do too bad.....she actually did great! 6 Oct 2009
By Grace - Published on
Format:Audio CD
MY REVIEW ---> 4/5

I will say the album is a grower, the more you listen to it the better it gets. The only song that still hasn't caught on right away is Standing 0, but the rest is flawless.

Mariah spills out her personal perception of the beauty and ugliness of love & relationships. Her lyrics depict relatable stories and captures her frolic personality.

Songs like Ribbon, Impossible, Inseparable, and More Than Just Friends paint a romantic, mushy picture of falling in love.

However the following moody songs lie in complete contrast: Betcha U Gonna Know and H.A.T.E U delineates the tough process of heartbreak, betrayal, and bitterness when love goes wrong.

Fun, sassy songs like It's A Wrap, Obsessed, Up Out My Face, and Standing 0 take sardonic shots at the person on the other end of the relationship.

Candy Bling, Angels Cry and Languishing are played as beautiful melodies, yet tainted with lingering sadness as each song exposes fear, emotional memories, and reminscent love stories.

Lastly the main theme of the album ends off with Mariah's own soft-powerful interpetation of the song I Want To Know What Love Is Throughout the album love came and left soon after. Her desperate plea to understand what love is, it rather appropriate for this album (despite the criticism)

5.0 out of 5 stars Her best since Butterfly! 1 Oct 2009
By Joy - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This will be short and to the point. This new album is the best Mariah album since Butterfly! When I heard the samples, I really felt like I was back in the 90's and I haven't been so excited for a Mariah album since the Butterfly album! Any fan of Mariah's 90's stuff, especially Butterfly, has no reason whatsoever to put this album down! It really is a Butterfly part 2!! Just forget all her albums since then, not that I don't love all her albums but this is so much better than all her albums after Butterfly!!

What really stands out here is the music itself has so many different sounds like you heard in the 80's and 90's!! Also, Mariah's 90's vocals are back finally on this album!! Meaning she doesn't sound forced and she lets her voice sing more naturally that she hasn't done in so long. The high notes especially sound so awesome and magical like you heard in the 90's, like especially on the Butterfly album!! I just cannot believe how awesome this album is!! Any Mariah fan should totally fall in love with it!! There's NO reason whatsoever to bash it or say it's less than what she can do. I can hear she put 200% into this!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album!! 5 Oct 2009
By Lauren Glenn - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love Memoirs of An Imperfect Angel. I feel that many songs have grown on me as with any new album. I also feel that she could have done without The Dream & Tricky Stewart on a few songs but they are what's hot now. I know people who initially hated the album but after a few more listens they are loving the songs. The "90s" Mariah is gone so get over it and stop making that a reason to HATE the album. People grow and CHANGE with the times. Current favorite songs:
1. Betcha Gon Know
2. Candy Bling
3. Ribbon
4. Standing O
5. It's A Wrap
6. Inseparable
7. Up Out My Face
8. The Impossible
9. Languishing (This grows on me more and more.)

I just can't believe true Mariah fans can't find at least one song they love on this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars How to said it ? 1 Oct 2009
By Balussou Aurelie - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Mariah Carey made a strange album...
Like everything, you have people who like and people who don't like. But I think all of you can appreciate this album or an part of it. You passing to a melancolic song to an rythmmic and R&B song.
In my opinion the power of this album is : the diversity.
It appear like an uncommercial album and really more personal. Some review critic it, but this is the diversity which disapointed the reviewer. They don't have habit ? Or their own opinion on the "Diva" Carey ?

To sum up, I don't say this is her best album of all the time, but it is very cool and nice for the long winter night or just when you feel sad and you want to comforted you with a music.

For the end, my top :
#1 - It's A Wrap
#2 - H.A.T.E.U.
#3 - Betcha Gon' Know
#4 - Up Out My Face
#5 - Sanding O & Candy Bling (^^)

Bye !
