The Return of the Diva,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Emancipation of Mimi - The Platinum Edition [CD + DVD] (Audio CD)
I became a Mariah fan back in the late '90s when she released 'Butterfly', but then came 'Rainbow' and I lost interest in her music. Earlier this year I saw 'The Emancipation of Mimi' in the stores but didn't buy it. Then I read about the grammy award nominations and other good things about Mariah's 'comeback' and decided to check 'Mimi' out. And I love it! This is Mariah back on form. I love her urban/hip hop sound, but not when it overwhelms her vocals - pleased to say that this album has found the perfect balance. It has some great beats but allows Mariah's voice to take centre stage. A really cool, sexy disc. Definitely worthwhile to get the Ultra Platinum edition with DVD if you are a Mariah 'addict' as the videos are superb. Mariah's not only sounding better than ever, she looks more beautiful than ever too. Forget what the haters have to say about this awesome diva and give yourself up to her charms!
