Mariah at her best!!!,
This review is from: Charmbracelet (Audio CD)
The album 'Charmbracelet' is an amazing album that, in my opinion, shows Mariah off at her best. The albums lyrics are personal and touching and really give an insight into what Mariah has been going through the past 18 months. The songs succesfully show off Mariahs amazing 5 note octave(she can range 40 notes don't ya know?) as she proves she hasn't lost her talent to deliver a tune. Some of the songs that stand out most on the album are- 'Bringin on the heartbreak', in this song we see Mariah taking on a rock edge and perhaps one of her most amazing songs ever? 'You Got Me' is a hip-hop flavoured track that features Jay-Z and Freeway. The good thing about the featured rappers is that they don't over do it in this song. 'Clown' is a mid-tempo tune that talks about regret and how lies are told. Alot of people say that this song was written about Eminem although Mariah denies this by saying simply-she knonws alot of clowns. And ofcourse who can forget Miss Carey's belter of a come-back song-'Through the rain'. This ballad contains Mariahs winning formula of strong high notes, crescendos, moving lyrics and a beautifully decorated melody. All in all, an incredible album which contains songs that'll help you get through any tough situation. An all round winner.
