4.0 out of 5 stars A genuinely good album........ 7 July 2007
Format:Audio CD
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....!

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.

1.0 out of 5 stars BAD BAD BAD 13 Nov 2011
By felix
Format:Audio CD
I want to like this album because i have loved all of mariahs early work but i have to say that this is one of her weakest!!!! She is trying too hard to keep up with the younger generation that she loses what she is great at, writing and singing beautiful music!! Music box, daydream and butterfly are just magic.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Rainbow of Sounds. 11 Aug 2008
By Alex
Format:Audio CD
1. Heartbreaker. 10/10
2. Can't Take That Away (Mariah's Theme). 9/10
3. Bliss. 10/10
4. How Much. 10/10
5. After Tonight. 9/10
6. X-Girlfriend. 10/10
7. Heartbreaker (Remix). 9/10
8. Vulnerability (Interlude). 7/10
9. Against All Odds (Take A Look At Me Now). 10/10
10. Crybaby. 10/10
11. Did I Do That? 10/10
12. Petals. 8/10
13. Rainbow (Interlude). 6/10
14. Thank God I Found You. 10/10

OVERALL GRADE: 10/10
This is the perfect MC album. The crossover dance hits, the hip producers, bucket loads of producers, gentle ballads. But with the cutesy, retro "Heartbreaker" and so 80s cover, this becomes more than the average Carey album!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 2 Oct 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I got Rainbow this morning and after only litsening to a few songs I think its an excellent album from the wonderful Mariah. Its very up-to-date and features stars of hip-hop and R&B such as Usher ans my other favourite artist of the moment, Snoop Dogg. I love the fact that both mixes of Heartbreaker are featured and was very pleased to find this particular copy (Minus Westlife-thank god!) was still availible. Id recommend this to younger Mariah fans who are looking for something a little more upbeat and modern than previous releases. Well done Mariah!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Daydream and a Butterfly lead to a Rainbow 22 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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.
