Mariah Carey sure knows how to construct an album. She places herself between R&B and Adult Contemporary. From the brilliant dance of "Fantasy" and "Always Be My Baby" to the smooth R&B of the Boys II Men duet "One Sweet Day", this is one of her best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let Prince take you on a rollercoaster ride down from 1982 all the way to the present day!, 29 July 2008
This review is from: 1999 (Audio CD)
1. 1999. 10/10
2. Little Red Corvette. 10/10
3. Delirious. 10/10
4. Let's Pretend We're Married. 9/10

10. All the Critics Love U In New York. 10/10
11. International Lover. 10/10

OVERALL GRADE: 10/10
Let prince take you on a journey through the party of "1999", the sexuality of "Little Red Corvette",the simplicity of "Delirious", the shockingness of "Let's Pretend We're Married", through to the sexy dance anthem "D.M.S.R.", the catchiness of "Automatic", quirkyness of "Something in the Water", sweetness of "Free", steaminess of "Lady Cab Driver", strangeness of "Love U In New York", the sheer brilliantness of "International Lover" and then you are at the end of your 70 minutes of passion. On a par with "Sign" and "Purple" and "3121".

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Music Machine I've Ever Had!, 8 July 2008
I had my iPod for my birthday (16/3) this year and I absolutely love it! I have had many listening enjoyments out of this and I adore it, it is my most prized possession!
Beware, sometimes the cover flow will turn into lines and songs won't play but all you need to do is go on iTunes, restore it to factory settings then put all your music back on.


Purple Rain

Price: £5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Purple Reign, Not Purple Rain!, 5 July 2008
This review is from: Purple Rain (Audio CD)
1. Let's Go Crazy. 10/10
2. Take Me With U. 10/10

4. Computer Blue. 9/10
5. Darling Nikki. 10/10
6. When Doves Cry. 10/10
7. I Would Die 4 U. 10/10
8. Baby I'm a Star. 10/10
9. Purple Rain. 8/10

OVERALL GRADE: 10/10
Prince's 2nd best album, behind "Sign "O" the Times". Just edit "Purple Rain" a little bit and it would rise from 8/10 to 9/10, because at 8.41, it is too long. (and "Purple Rain's" outro is more than 5 mins!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Kylie's Most Interesting Record, 21 Jun. 2008
1. Too Far. 8/10
2. Cowboy Style. 10/10
3. Some Kind of Bliss. 10/10
4. Did It Again. 10/10
5. Breathe. 10/10
6. Say Hey. 9/10
7. Drunk. 9/10
8. I Don't Need Anyone. 10/10
9. Jump. 9/10
10. Limbo. 10/10
11. Through the Years. 8/10
12. Dreams. 10/10

OVERALL GRADE: 10/10
This has to be Kylie's most misunderstood album, and didn't get the critical and commercial reception that it deserved, as the songwriting and compositions go much further. Exploring for the first time into the electronica-rock-dancepop genre, this shows Kylie as the title, as an Imposible Princess.

Some artists' sophomore albums are better than their debuts. The artsists which have achieved this this feat are:

Madonna; Like a Virgin
Michael Jackson: Thriller
Alicia Keys: The Diary of Alicia Keys
Kylie Minogue: Kylie
Goldfrapp: Black Cherry
Britney Spears: Oops, I Did It Again!...
Amy Winehouse: Back to Black
