5.0 out of 5 stars So Sublime, 22 Aug 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Glitter (Audio CD)
Mariah is back with a new album, a cross over between 1980's funk and 2001's hip-hop. She is a true genius, not only does she have an outstanding voice, she also writes the most wonderful lyrics and helps with the production of the album.
Loverboy (the remix): a fresh hip-hop funky summer tune with the inclusion of an array of rap artists.
Lead The Way: A slow piano based ballad with Mariah's trademark whispering vocals leading to more trademark Mariah power vocals.
If We: Starting off like a nursery rhyme leading into a relaxed heavily hip-hop based song. Featuring Nate Dogg and Ja Rule.
Didn't Mean To Turn You On: Penned by Jam & Lewis this 80's funk is something you'll shake your booty to with infectious funky beats and guitar riffs midway through.
Don't Stop: A mix between hip hop and a jazzy pop song, there's a very hip hop feel with the beats and from the inclusion of Mystikal, but the sparkly jazz melody... the result is a catchy hip hop floor filler!
All My Life: The most pop track on the album, this is pure disco. A very catchy chorus and wonderful 80's flute sounds and Mariah's strong vocals make this song just well sparkle.
Reflections: Another ballad, this time more catchy. Again Mariah showcases her vocal ability from switching between her whispy and diva voice.
Last Night A DJ Saved My Life: A hip hop version of a classic disco anthem, with the heavy inclusion of Busta Rhymes and a funky hip hop beat going on makes this a work of art. The mix between Mariah's heartless vocals and the funk of the hip hop touches make this one of the stand out tracks.
Want You: Another 80's funk style songs... with great backing music. Mariah and Eric Benet compete with their vocals, a very strong song. But unlike the other 80's songs, this is more laid back.
Never Too Far: This has a beautiful string intro leading to Mariah's strongest ballad on the album. She pushes her voice out to make this more dramatic.
Twister: Another ballad, this time a short but sweet one, very mystical and much like a tragic lullaby.
Loverboy: Not as good as the remix, but with cameo taking a cut of the limelight, this seems slightly more classic than the remix.
Loverboy (MJ Cole Remix): A garage style remix, jazzing up loverboy. A Great ending to a great album.
