Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Mariah Carey's #1's is as much a time capsule of '90s pop and R&B as a record of one woman's chart toppers: the disc chronicles a shift from the sweet, nearly '50s-style "Vision of Love" to more recent hip-hop-lite grooves featuring heavy input from Puffy Combs ("Honey"), Jermaine Dupri ("Sweetheart"), and O.D.B. ("Fantasy"). Some hit, some miss, but all feature the fluttery swoops that Carey substitutes for expression of feeling. Depth is beside the point, but few of these tracks are even fun. Still, after eight years, there seems to be no stopping her, and this album will hardly break her streak of successes. --Rickey Wright

5.0 out of 5 stars Mariah at her best June 16, 2000
By Josh
Format:Audio CD
There is a reason these songs went to number one. That reason is that they are absolutely incredible! ALways Be My Baby is truly classic, Hero is absolutley inspirational, One Sweet Day is heartwrentching. Honey is a great dance tune and Dreamlover is awesome. Believe it or not, despite her fame, I only recently discovered Mariah Carey. Her Rainbow album was coming out and Bought it because of Heartbreaker. Around that time, The radio stations started playing old Mariah Carey songs. I half-listened to them and went to buy #1's, which I figured were her only good songs. I bought it, fell in love with it and now I have all of Mariah Carey's albums. She really is a talented artist and this CD more than proves it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, it is a Greatest Hits November 22, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I'm sorry, but any way you look at it this is a greatest hits album, which is not necessarily a bad thing. While other artists like Whitney Houston and Celine Dion are compiling "Greatest Hits" LPs with glaring, and I mean GLARING, omissions, and replacing those major singles with mindless uninspired filler, it's nice to see a hit records compilation that does actually deliver what it promises. These are in fact Mariah's most popular records- signature pop classics like "One Sweet Day", "Dreamlover", "Hero", "Love Takes Time", and "Emotions", along with a few new cuts as an added perk. It's everything a greatest hits album is supposed to be, but seldome is anymore. It offers casual fans a 13-track skimming of her anthems, and some bonus nuggets along the way. Considering how many major singles were actually included, I'd say this LP definitely ranks among the most generous best-of compilations around. Absolutely a must for the pop music fan. Don't be afraid to call it a greatest hits- this one actually is...

5.0 out of 5 stars This is an outstanding cd!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! December 5, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Amazing!!!!!!! Mariah has done it again by putting out another hit album.This one contains all 13 #1 hits,from her debut in 1990,Vision of love,to her most recent #1,My All.She really knows how to put feel into her songs.For example,in the song Emotions,she gets you up and dancing and happy.Also I Don't Wanna Cry,she really brings across the sad and depressing moods in this song,like you've just lost your girlfriend or boyfriend.She also has 4 new recordings,Sweetheart(with JD),When You Believe(with Whitney Houston),Whenever You Call(with Brian McKnight),and a remake of the hit I Still Believe by Brenda K. Starr.All are excellent.Personally,Whenever You Call is my favorite on this album,in my opinion.This cd is DEFINITELY a must buy,and it makes an excellent Christmas gift.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mariah at her best..... November 26, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I must have been about eight years old when I first heard Mariah Carey's "Vision of Love." She really blew me away (along with several million other people in the United States and worldwide). How many people do you know who have perfect pitch and a five octave range? This girl was wailing harder than a jazz sax. I was hooked on that debut album, and although I wasn't feeling the later songs she put out (one too many rap artists doing guest work on the tracks--they all began to sound the same).

"# 1's" is a great cross section from the highlights of Ms. Carey's career...oh wait, we are calling her "MiMi" now, huh?

My personal favorites from this compilation are as follows:

Track #3: "Whenever You Call (With Brian McKnight)"

The first time I heard this, I said, "This is definitely going to be playing at my wedding." As most of us who have heard Brian McKnight can agree, he is a master of the romantic R&B ballad. His range is sweet, tender and sexy, and together, with MiMi (see, I'm trying to get used to the new nickname), their voices compliment each other just beautifully. Definitely a song to keep in rotation on your sound system for a romantic evening!

Track #14 "Someday"

This is off of the "Emotions" album. I love the upbeat rhythm and how we get to hear MiMi's low and high (oh lord, is it HIGH) register. I mean, I am talking almost super sonic, here. Although it might not be for all tastes, you can't help admitting it's pretty astounding.

Track #16 "Vision of Love"

I love the more traditional sound of the melody on this track. This could have easily been recorded by Aretha Franklin back in the day.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not that bad, though Mariah has deteriorated March 12, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This CD is a mixed-bag. On one hand, it has all the old songs which feature Mariah's powerful voice that made her famous. Songs like "Vision of Love", "I Don't Wanna Cry" and my personal favorite "Hero" showcase her talent like nothing else. But in recent times (1997-onward) Mariah has been straying away from her fans, into hip-hop. "When You Believe" is good, and "I Still Believe" is good, but it clearly shows that Mariah's voice has gone downhill. Love the old songs (but WHY did they ruin "fantasy"), but the new songs are only so-so. For a good and consistent greatest-hits album that features more than 3 new songs, check out Celine Dion's "All The Way" album. That's the best greatest hits I own.
