In addition to C. Tricky Stewart and The-Dream, other guest producers joining Mariah on E=MCý include Jermaine Dupri, DJ Toomp, Stargate, Will I Am, Bryan Michael Cox, Nate "Danjahandz" Hills and James Poyser.

This is an excellent new album from Mariah Carey. My favorite track is "Cruise Control". I love the rapping by Damian Marley on this track. My other favorite track is I'm That Chick". It has a good groovy beat to dance to. "Side Effects" is a good jam too. I like the rapping by Jeezy on this song. "Touch My Body" is a very sensual song. It is the kind of song that makes me wish I had a girlfriend. There are also some very pretty track on this disc. Bye Bye is a very touching song. I also love the piano playing on I Wish You Well". "I Stay In Love" is a sweet love song. "Thanks For Nothing" is a good song about feeling broken hearted. I really enjoy listening to the tracks on this disc.

This album is a huge dissapointment. Mariah is capable of so much more than this. This whole album sounds like a really boring movie, similar to Glitter. There are only a few good songs on this album. One being the very curiously produced "Migrate", I can easily see this being the second single. It's another T-Pain featured track, again where T-Pain steals the show. Another one of the very few standout tracks is "For The Record" which is just a great mid tempo track where Mariah shows her true talent that we all know she has. But then this whole album goes sour, the rest of the songs on this album are very bland and boring. With "I Stay In Love" you can tell very clearly that she tried to recreate "We Belong Together" but it didnt work at all. The result is a very obvious attempt to recapture a past hit, and a overall boring song. And then i was ashamed that Mariah Carey even thought putting out "I'm That Chick" was a good idea because this song is a carbon copy of Ne-Yo's "Because Of You" and any mega Mariah fan has to even admitt that this song sounds identical to "Because Of You". "Cruise Control" is another attempt for her trying to get another big hit, but it just sounds like an incomplete song. And thats honestly how i feel about this whole album, it feels like she rushed this album or something because the songs on the album just don't mesh well together. And alot of the songs leave you with the feeling of, "Thats It???..." because you feel like the song didnt do anything to you. My overall take on this album is that its pretty much just a big mess of music that she should have taken more time to make some better songs and arrange this album better, because we all know that Mariah Carey is one of the best vocalists of our generation, i will never take that away from her, but on this album i dont feel like shes one of the best. Sorry Mariah fans, just being honest.

About a year & a half ago when I heard that Mariah was working on a new album with the proposed title of "Sweet Soul Odyssey", I was ecstatic. As a fan, of course I'd been overjoyed at the reception to and success of EMANCIPATION OF MIMI and thought that having regained her supposed lost place in the world of pop music, she'd be confident enough to produce an album of tracks like SUBTLE INVITATION, HOW I WISH U KNEW, FLY LIKE A BIRD, etc. I love those kinds of tracks from Mariah because they're unexpected - they're not hip hop and especially SI has a jazzier production than some of her recent work.

Unfortunately as the time passed I started hearing that this album would NOT be the anticipated soulful music that I'd hoped for but a replica of EMANCIPATION. I hate to compare the two albums but I have to in order to be honest about my feelings for E=MC2. From the 1st time I listened to EMANCIPATION, I loved all but 2 tracks and still to this day, enjoy listening to the album on a frequent basis but after listening to E=MC2 a few times, there are only 6 songs that I love and 4 that I think are just "ok".

This album reminds me of my feelings for her RAINBOW album - there are a few tracks that I like but overall I'm disappointed in it as a whole and skip over more than a few tracks. I feel like with EMANCIPATION, Mariah & the writers & producers worked really hard to present strong tracks and the result is an album that I love while this one seems to want to follow the same production path but with weaker lyrics and unmemorable tracks.

Mariah has outdone herself with E=MC². While I find Touch My Body to be one of her worst songs to date, The rest of the album totally makes up for it. "I'm That Chick" is a soulful 70's sounding song sampling Off The Wall by Michael Jackson. "I'll Be Lovin' U Long time" is another great track. I was a little skeptible about listing to it at first because it sampled "Stay with me" by DeBagre and I was worried it would sound exactly like Ashanti's "Foolish" And Notorious BIG's "One More Chance" (Radio/video version) and I hate oversampling but Mariah used a different portion of the DeBarge song. "Last Kiss" (Minus The extra Jermaine Durpi vocals) is a track which reminds me of the Mariah before Butterfly, Before she started working with Sean "Diddy/Puffy" Combs and became hip-hop-ish with her songs. I didn't like "Migrate" when I first saw her perform it on SNL but its growing on me. The best song on the album has to be Bye Bye. In a way, it's kind of like a part to to "Sunflowers For Alfred Roy" from Charmbracelet. She sings about losing someone and since I just lost my mother in October of 2006, the song really spoke to me. Other than not liking "Touch My Body", E=MC² is a great album.

My top 5 songs
1. Bye Bye
2. I'm That Chick
3. I'll Be Lovin' U Long Time
4. Last Kiss
5. Thanx 4 Nothin'

"Enough say, Mariah's album bombed."
How was it a bomb? It was the 26th best selling album in the world last year. It may have not done as well as her previous albums, but in terms of how albums are selling these days, it certainly wasn't a bomb.

Album is horrible mariah is horrible as usual
Let's be fair here, J.Brackett. To call Whitney a diva now, is a huge stretch. Whitney destroyed her voice and has been reduced to singing songs with no range whatsoever that require LOTS of vocal editing and splicing. Mariah can still sing, when she's not trying to sound like all of these... Read More

If people give Mariah a 'chance' to impress them, she will...
I love it more than TEOM. It's much more versatile and more Classic Mariah. I love it and can't wait until next week!

album leaked...here's my review
Are you like 12 years old? Learn how to write a review with tolerable grammar at the very least. And saying "f*** you MC" and wanting to "stab jermaine". How mature!
