Oh dear, oh dear, oh.....dear
on 12 September 2001
I work in the music department of a well known superstore, and get to play all the best new releases. It's a great job as you get to listen to fantastic new music and not have to buy it!
But that all changed when someone put this record on...
This sounds like everything Mariah has done before, except much much worse. There isn't a single catchy tune in there! It doesn't even sound like she's done any work. There are so many guest artistes on ths album, i'm surprised its even come out as a Mariah Carey album!
Then when you DO hear Mariah, you have to constantly put up with her whiny, breathy vocal aerobics - if you call that singing, i'm sorry but you must be from another planet, where singing normally to a tune is outlawed!
And as for ending the album with the same song as you start with, albeit a remix, that doesnt really show a lot of imagination, now does it?!
I cant believe some of the reviews that are giving this album five stars, saying its her most adventurous album to date and all that. Maybe its adventurous for her, but lets face it - its nothing we havent heard before - nor want to hear ever again! It is insipid, putrid, whining, and ultimately, fake!
