4.0 out of 5 stars Revitalised!, 16 Oct 2003
This review is from: The Remixes (Audio CD)
Mariah Carey has always been vastly underrated in the UK! In America she broke numerous awards in the 90s for sales and other chart achievements, in the UK she broke none. Seen as more of a diva more obsessed with her image and vocal histrionics than writing "serious" music she was put in a pigeon hole with the likes of Celine Dion and Whitney Houston. Unlike the latter two, however, Mariah writes all of the lyrics in all of her songs and has done since her debut single 'Vision of Love'. That she appears to be an attention grabbing diva only adds to the stage act and makes her a breath of fresh air when compared to other balladeers. This album takes songs from her whole career and puts them through the mix. Mariah actually re-records most of the songs as they are remixed which is something very rare. This gives each song a whole new lease of life allowing for new vocals, and even new songs added to the middle of old. The 1st disc concentrates on dance style mixes, the standout being 'Heartbreaker/If You Should Ever Be Lonely'. The 2nd disc is fixed on Mariah's RnB mixes. Think back to 1995 and you'll see that Mariah was the 1st diva to use a guest rapper on a hit single - she's dissed these days for jumping on a band wagon...how?! She did it FIRST! - 'Fantasy' with O.D.B. . You also get songs that appeared on her 'Butterfly' album - 'Breakdown' with Bone Thugs and Harmony and 'Crybaby' with Snoop Dogg from 'Rainbow'. I read a review on amazon from someone who clearly doesn't like Mariah. Why would one buy an album and review it knowing that they didn't like the artist?! I do like Mariah and her music. If you want her personal songs for which she is not known outside of her core fanbase then go to 'Butterfly', 'Rainbow' and 'Chrambracelet'. If you want a great RnB/Dance party album BUY THIS!!
