Product Description

Product Description

Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel is the twelfth studio album from Grammy Award winning R&B star Mariah Carey. Produced mainly by Terius 'The-Dream' Nash and Tricky Stewart, the album sees Carey taking the reins as main songwriter and using the ups and downs of her own life as inspiration. Backed by slick R&B and hip hop production, Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel is another solid addition to Mariah Carey's impressive back catalogue. The single "Obsession" is featured as well as a cover of Foreigner's "I Want To Know What Love Is".

Product Description

2009 UK LIMITED EDITION + 4 Bonus remixes! Includes the single 'Obsessesd'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Only just imperfect 8 Jan 2010
Format:Audio CD
I've been listening to this album for about 4 months now and feel a review is due. It really is one of those albums that takes a while to get your head around. Each week I have a different favourite track. I think this is testament to the fact that these songs are complicated and don't necessarily come across at their best on first listen. I owned Debut by Bjork for years before I appreciated just how amazing it is so I think this is a positive thing for Memoirs. I am going to go through each track except the Obsessed remixes. I think these are unnecessary but hey, they're free so can't complain. It does maybe dilute the album overall having them here.

1. Betcha Gon Know - My first favourite. Great smooth low vocals from MC and gorgeous slick production, the sounds of opening windows and breathing compliment the clever lyrics really well. Tells a great story and suggests the revenge that an international A-lister is capable of should she be pushed!
2. Obsessed - A great single with a rare quality video (the ones for IWKWLI and h.a.t.e.u. are pitiful, not good enough for MC at all!). Not sure it belongs on this album but with nearly 2 million sales worldwide and a whole lot more if promoted better it's a smash for Mariah.
3. H.a.t.e.u. - The kind of song that could only come from Mariah. She talked about the influence of Minnie Riperton and nowhere does it come across more strikingly. A gorgeous concept showing her vulnerable side and really pretty vocals that we've come to take for granted. I wish she'd put the version she sings live on the album as the outro is beautiful but this is a stellar song that fits perfectly here.
4. Candy Bling - Smooth, classic rnb with mentions of Jack and butterflies for the lambs.

5.0 out of 5 stars A song for every mood!!!!! 19 Jun 2012
By Jamie
Format:Audio CD
In my opinion this is a truly amazing and under rated album and one of her best!!!!! I have reviewed the songs below:
1. Betcha Gon' Know (9/10)- Relaxing slow song which tells a good story.
2. Obsessed (10/10)- Not a particular Mariah Carey song but she does make it hers towards the end with the whistle, fun up tempo song which will get you in a fun and cheerful mood.
3. H.A.T.E.U (7.5/10)- A slow song which doesn't really stand out from the album.
4.Candy Bling (8/10)- Wonderful song which is a typical track you would would of thought to have found on Mariah's Butterfly album.
5. Ribbon (8.5/10) - Cheesy, fun and enjoyable song.
6. Inseperable (9.5/10) - Excellent memorable song, which will get you putting it on repeat.
7. Standing O (10/10)- Fun, enjoyable and up tempo song.
8. Its a wrap (10/10)- Great Mariah original song which will fail to disappoint you.
9. Up out my face (8/10)- Not the best song vocally of Mariah's, but it is fun and will get you up and dancing.
10 Up out My Face (The Reprise)
11. More Than Just Friends (10/10) - One of my favourites off the album which may relate to some peoples feelings.
12. The Impossible (7/10)- Average song from Mariah Carey, but still good.
13. The Impossible (The Reprise)
14. Angel (The Prelude)
15. Angels Cry (10/10)- Amazing song, Stands out alot to me and in my opinion this should have been released as an official lead single.
16. Languishing (The Interlude)
17. I want To Know What Love Is (10/10) Amazing song, The best on the album vocally!!!

Overall Score 9/10

4.0 out of 5 stars a fan of Mimi 14 Nov 2009
Format:Audio CD
What are they playing at???? The album has been out for weeks in the US and Europe, it was first supposed to be out end of August, then on 16th November and now it is scheduled to be released on the 23rd of Nov. Whoever makes those decision, you are insulting UK fans. The album has been out for weeks in Europe, I got my copy from Amazon.fr. It is a good album for anyone who likes Mariah. I guess the UK wanted to protect the release of their so called divas 'Alexandra Burke' and 'Sheryl' and even older Diva 'Whitney'...Well,, Mariah has still got the best album after all.

5.0 out of 5 stars an album for fans 26 Sep 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I got a really nice surprise last night, I was gutted to see here on Amazon the new November 16th release date. I checked other online music stores who still had the 5th of October date. I was confused but then, I went to itunes (Irish store) and saw the album was available for download yesterday! I don't know was this a mistake or what but I downloaded the album straight away and here's what I think after listening all last night/ day today...

Firstly, vocally Mariah is definitely on form this time out... I don't care what some people say... Mariah is singing the songs this time out, NOT whispering them like she did around Glitter/ Charmbracelet... sure in some songs, she starts out soft but she builds to a strong finish every time and is not holding back at all.. you don't sense a weakness in her voice that you did around Glitter/ Charmbracelet or that she is ever holding back... she still has it, she just knows not to oversing from beginning to end every time because then her vocal strength loses impact/ effect. Vocally, Mariah delivers as good as she did on 2005's mimi.

Musically, this album definitely is very cohesive and you can sense a tight, fully rounded collection of songs... It is certainly reminiscent of 1997's "Butterfly" in this regard.... I think it was a good idea that she stuck with The Dream and Tricky only for this album.... The songs definitely flow and nothing sticks out like a sore thumb.. sometimes, Mariah's leanings towards hip hop tracks really jars an albums flow for me anyway... this album is very much a soothing, smooth rnb album about losing loving and finding it again.

It really doesn't venture into hip-hop much which I am thrilled about... since rainbow in 1999, every Mariah album has featured lots of collaborations with rappers...

A load of synthesised rubbish. Britney/Mariah - are they the same person now? Regardless, neither of them sing.
