Well, this is simply the "Greatest Hits" album of 2001, with exactly the same tracklisting, but with a different title and cover. Nonsense!

If Sony really wants to do something regarding Mariah, that should be another compilation including songs that didn't make to "Greatest Hits" such as 'Never Forget You', 'There's Got to Be a Way', 'Open Arms', 'Breakdown', 'The Roof', 'Crybaby', 'If It's Over (MTV Unplugged)', and most importantly, the original version of 'All I Want for Christmas Is You'.

Also an album of unreleased songs, rarities ('Every Time I Close My Eyes'...) , b-sides ('Do You Think of Me?', 'Slipping Away'...), memorable live performances ('Chain of Fools' with Aretha Franklin, 'Hopelessly Devoted to You' with Olivia Newton-John, 'Hero' with Pavarotti, 'America the Beautiful'...) remixes that weren't included on "The Remixes" ('I Still Believe/Pure Imagination', 'Can't Take That Away (Mariah's Theme) (Morales' Revival Triumphant Mix)', 'Underneath the Stars (Drifting Re-Mix)'...) would be pretty welcome.

But this is just a shame. The same thing has been done to Whitney, too.

Here's an ideal "Greatest Hits" for me, that I listen to on my iPod:

CD #1:

1.Vision of Love
2.Love Takes Time
3.Someday
4.I Don't Wanna Cry
5.There's Got to Be a Way
6.Emotions
7.Can't Let Go
8.Make It Happen
9.I'll Be There
10.If It's Over
11.Dreamlover
12.Hero
13.Without You
14.Never Forget You
15.Anytime You Need a Friend
16.Endless Love
17.All I Want for Christmas Is You
18.Fantasy
19.One Sweet Day

CD #2:

1.Always Be My Baby
2.Open Arms
3.Forever
4.Underneath the Stars
5.Honey
6.Butterfly
7.

Okay, I know most people will cringe when they see it and go "Oh great! NOT yet another Greatest Hits CD by Mariah Carey! When she gonna release new material? She's flogging a dead horse!" But it is kinda a mixture of Mariah's other compilations albums (#1's, The Remixes, The Collections) and Mariah's 2001 Greatest Hits albums all rolled in together, yes it's only got Mariah at her highest of her career from the Sony/Columbia Records era, it features 4 of her first 5 #1s (Someday was replaced in this album with her song Vanishing which Sony Records never released but can be found on the "Mariah Carey" album and on both "Playlist: The Very Best Of Mariah Carey"/"The Collection" CDs so it's not an exact replica of Greatest Hits) it also replaces the original 1994 release of Anytime You Need A Friend (off of the 1993 release "Music Box") with the "C&C Club Remix" of the song, it also includes the hip-hop orientated song "The Roof (Back In Time)" but, however it's NOT the same as the one she released on her 1997 album "Butterfly", it is the rap remix which features Mobb Deep & Big Noyd, two other new songs on the album that weren't found on the original Greatest Hits or UK release of "The Essential" both album only singles "Close My Eyes" (found on "Butterfly") and "Bliss" (originally from her 1999 album "Rainbow" and on the Playlist: The Very Best Of Mariah Carey/The Collection album) Disc One consists of songs from 1990-1995 and Disc Two consists of songs from 1996-1999/2000, you can tell the album is a trip down memory lane where you see her change from an R&B singer to a hip-hop mama, you do wish that if they do make an yet another Mariah Carey compilation album what would it be?Read more ›

From the moment I heard 'Vision of Love' back in the 1990's, I became a huge Mariah Carey fan. I bought all of her albums from Vision of Love to Butterfly, including the Glitter soundtrack. With the exception of Glitter, (sorry Glitter fans), all of these albums were flawless, track after track.

But after that, I felt like her music changed, along with her image. Don't get me wrong. The music was still great, but it just didn't connect with me overall like her previous work had.This album is Old School Mariah. The Mariah with the innocent face and the long, curly hair. Has all the hits, from 'Vision of Love' to 'I'll be there' to 'Whenever you call' with Brian McKnight.

Brilliant and soooooo worth the money.
