5.0 out of 5 stars The Voice, The Songs, The Legacy is all here, 3 Jan. 2004
This review is from: Greatest Hits (Audio CD)
In 1990 Mariah appeared on the scene and brought to the music industry an artist who not only posseses and amazing voice but who can write the most perfect songs.
Mariah's debut single "Vision Of Love" has breathtaking vocals and is a very deep song, a US number one rightfully. "Love Takes Time" is a sad an beautifulk song with true emotion in her voice and was another US number one, "Someday" has very strong vocals and great lyrics, so perfect and yes it was another number one(US). "I Don't Wanna Cry" is another song from her debut album and is very classy and meaningful, it's so beautiful.
"Without You" is the best cover version in history, her voice is so amazing on this track and the song would sve been enough to earn a gold star. The ballads are where Mariah shines and this shows so well on the stunning "My All" which is so lingering and deep, "Hero" is simply outstanding and is my favourite song, the voice, the piano, the lyrics, it just blows you away, OUTSTANDING!
A few years into her career Mariah started to embrace hip hop music and got rappers to give her songs new life, it worked so well and saw her finally embrace who she is. "Honey" is a fantastic floor filler and is so funky with the sweet and strong vocals and a tasteful rap for flavour. "Heartbreaker" is phenomenal and is the best song to include rap elements ever in my opinion, Jay Z's voice suits so well with Mariah's and the rap is very smooth and cool. Also there is "Sweetheart" which gives out a good hip hop ibe.
The unforgettable "Dreamlover" is my second all time favourite song and i ever grow tired of it, her voice hits some beautiful high notes and even the simple backing singing has amazing musical life. The club friendly "Fantasy" is fabulous with vocals to set your heart on fire and send you to the dance floor, a Mariah classic and you must hear the remix sometime, fantastic. Mariah covered the Jackson Five classic "I'll Be There" with Trey Lorenz which is so beautiful and melts my heart. I love "Always Be My Baby", its fantastic and so uplifting, i can't get enough. The power ballad "One Sweet Day" with Boyz 2 Men is remarkable and is sung with such emotion.
The album tops Mariah "Number Ones" album easily because it includes what are genually her best songs and not just the number ones. "Underneath The Stars" and "Forever" were not massive hits but they are breathtaking songs.
This album is the story of the greatest career in history. Mariah puts her passion for music into all her songs and it creates somrthing that contributes massively to the essence of music and will be influencing many artists for years to come. A FANTASTIC ALBUM.
