This review is from: Greatest Hits: Mariah Carey (Audio CD)
This album is a collection of the highlights of Mariah's 11 yr reign as one of the world's leading divas. It may not make much of a difference to the die-hard Carey fan, but it is an essential for any admirer who doesn't own all her previous albums.
The 2 disc set contains all her biggest hits and will take you on a musical journey through the 1990's from early classics like 'Vision of Love' and 'I Don't Wanna Cry'(both songs still sound so amazing) to "middle Mariah" hits like 'Dreamlover', 'Anytime You Need A Friend' and 'One Sweet Day' to her funkier hip-hop tunes from the late '90s like 'Honey', 'Sweetheart' and 'Heartbreaker'.
One of the reasons why this album seems to be slightly better than her previous Greatest Hits package 'No. 1's' is that all her singles are included, not just the number one hits. Also, you have the singles from the 'Rainbow' album which are real gems, especially the ballads.
All in all, a nice well-rounded package which is a good showcase statement for what made Mariah Carey one of the biggest selling artists of the last decade.
