This album illustrates the genius of a singer, producer, writer etc.that Mariah Carey is. Her collaboration with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis is nothing short of sheer excellence. This in no way overshadows the work of David Foster, Damizza and the other ground breaking producers who worked on this set.
Mariah demonstrates that her strength lies in vocal mastery and musical diversity. Those perfected high pitch notes in "Bliss" leave the listener rhapsodized whilst on the other extreme the low husky octave is put successfully to the test in "Petals". "After Tonight", "Vulnerability" and "Against all Odds" are polished to perfection whilst the gosphel flavoured "Can't Take That Away From Me" re-affirms Mariah's status as queen of the power ballad. The opposite extreme is an abundance of credible sleek R n B/Hip Hop sounds all of which are boosted and embossed by an army of superstars. The extremity of these grooves accentuates from the uptempo "Heartbreaker", to an ushered "How Much", to catchy "X-Girlfriend", to tearful "crybaby" and finally to the commendable "Did I do That".
This "Rainbow" leaves the Mariah fan praying "Thank God I Found You". However it's a shame for an album as good as this not to have been given a wider commercial audience by including some serious dance material or early Mariah "Rock". This is one reason why this album hasn't done so well in the UK charts.

I am a huge Mariah fan, and when this first came out, I rushed out and bought it! I was, however, awestruck by this record. I have all 9 Mariah albums (including Unplugged, #1's and Merry Christmas) and this is one of my favourites! Although there are a couple of mediocre (which is a bit disappointing) tracks here, namely How Much and X-Girlfriend, there are also some of the best songs she's ever done on here!
Can't Take That Away is simply breathtaking; a real anthem (which I love also because I can relate so much to it - it's a defiant song) with some of the best vocals of her career. Petals and Rainbow kind of run together, as a hopeful song which recount Mariah's history and emotional past (which I personally can relate to, word for word). Yes, she went through some bad times, but she came out better and stronger for it. They are beautiful songs, backed by piano and other gentle instruments, and are perfect to just wallow in and dream away. And to get your groove on, although Crybaby seems to be everyone's fave jam, I prefer the bouncin' Did I Do That. It's a killer hip-hop tune! Also encouraging are the songs Bliss (a relaxing vibe, with a Minnie Riperton feel), Vulnerability and Against All Odds, another vocal workout. Thank God I Found You is beautiful too.
All in all, yes there are a couple of duff tracks on here, but the rest more than make up for this. Don't be put off by Mariah's questionable image direction - this album is an emotional roller coaster ride that you'll never forget. Love it.

Now, Ms Carey is not to everyone's taste, and she is seemingly as mad as a fruit loop, but boy, the girl can sing. She has one of the best voices, and range, in music today. This album was a 'concept' album, in that it portrays, in song, going through a very dark period of her life (break up of her marriage) and emerging the other side.
The songs are all excellent. The ballads shine that little extra, because of the sentiment behind them, and in 'Heartbreaker' there is a genuinely great dance track - also includes the remix.Overall a solid, pop album.
If you are still wavering, mine came with a nice poster of Mariah lying on the bed sucking a lollipop....just though you'd like to know....!

The acclaim given for the "pop candymaking" of 95's Daydream, and the experimental courage and vision of 97's "Butterfly". collaborate to achieve a "Rainbow". The balance between the two is achieved with "Heartbreaker" taking the role of "Honey", and a new "Hero" anthem is found in the all inspiring "Can't take that away". A deeply personal album, calling out to her fans in support and openness in "Petals", Mariah's 9th album, entirely self written (bar the cover version), and heavy production input, have again been ignored by the critics who refuse to see the phenomenal ability not purely of that voice, but the writing and musical mastery which has never been acknowledged or accredited. However, all true Mariah fans, will again float in a sea of tranquility, emotion and gratitude at another masterpiece which should take pride of place in any record collection.

This has got to be Mariah's most credible album to date. It must also have the widest appeal. Mariah pleases fans both old and new. Long term fans of Mariah's 'balladey' side will be pleased with the 5 emotional ballads included of which the best are Against all odds (Phil Collins) and After Tonight, both of which must rank in Mariah's best songs ever.Aswell as ballads there are plenty of storming R'n B tracks include the brillian Heartbreaker remix which adds a whole new level to the song. The highlight of this album must be X-Girlfriend, it is just so slick, and shows Mariah can sing any way she wants. Don't get me wrong this album isn't perfect, you sometimes get the feeling it becomes a little self indulgent(Did I do that?), but it comes pretty close to being the best Mariah Carey Album ever, just on the sheer variation of style and vocal range !
