This is one of my favorite Mariah Carey albums.
Michelle Jenkins
Even if this is not Mariah Carey's finest album musically, it is definitely her flashiest in performance.

AND YOU DON'T REMEMBER-A very good song; very powerful vocals and excellent, moving lyrics.

I have been a Mariah Carey fan since the age of 3, and my mom brought home her Mariah Carey cassette. Later on I got Music Box, Daydream, Butterfly, #1's, Rainbow, Glitter, and finally I reached back and bought Emotions after listening to it over at a friend's house (It's hard to find.). I was amazed with every single track. My favorite's had to be Can't Let Go, Make It Happen, To Be Around You, Till The End Of Time (excellent vocals) and The Wind (absolutely haunting). Anyone who says that the tracks are too similar sounding to her debut, I don't remember hear any electric guitars on Emotions (I'm refering to the song "You Need Me"). And even if they did sound similar, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. And also, anyone who says that Emotions had too much R&B, you don't know what R&B is. This album was straight up and down gospel-influenced dance pop, and don't even try to equate gospel and R&B, cuz they sound similar now, but they didn't back in 1991. And now we're complaining about how she didn't stick to her old stuff. And I read in some reviews that the main reason you didn't like the cd was because it sounded like her debut. Make up your minds, people!

A great Mariah Carey album. Here are the songs.
EMOTIONS-An excellent song. Great for singing along with in the car. Very danceable. Try to find some of the remixes if you can-they are worth it.
AND YOU DON'T REMEMBER-A very good song; very powerful vocals and excellent, moving lyrics.
CAN'T LET GO-Such a beautiful song. How annoying that it didn't go to #1, not to mention that it held on to #2 for so long! Doesn't this beautiful ballad take you back? No doubt, the best single off the album.
MAKE IT HAPPEN-A great song that was a good slight-exaggeration of Mariah's post-high school, pre-record deal life. I don't know why it gets such harsh criticism from some people. Very danceable and catchy, great vocals. Like Emotions, great remixes are rare but findable.
IF IT'S OVER-The music truly spells Carol King all over it (they both collaborated on it). A nice song, but Mariah seems to get a little overpassionate at time. The first few seconds of the song (dum-dum-a-dum, the drums) are so annoying that they make you skip over the song to the next track. Still, a worthy composition. The live version on UNPLUGGED is better.
YOU'RE SO COLD-A very odd song, hard to tell if it's supposed to be sad or uplifting; perhaps a bit of both. I'm tired of this sort of song, but this one is good. It is really a true illustration of her creativity if you think about.
SO BLESSED-Though an excellent ballad, this song was condemed to being a SIDE-B. What a shame, it should have been an A-side. One of her absolute best.
TO BE AROUND YOU-Another condemned SIDE-B, it was the side B to the CAN'T LET GO single. A very good dance song, I truly wish there had been some remixes to this. They'd've been fantastic, but they never came about.

Released just months after promotion for her eponymous debut ceased, Emotions rode the wave of Mariah's extraordinary early '90s successes. While its predecessor was a bigger hit, this album has been certified quadruple platinum and spawned a classic number-one with its title track. That song opens the record on a high note, literally and figuratively, with its light disco/soul blend benefiting from Mariah's repeated high-pitched riffs. The classics don't stop there. "Can't Let Go" is a jazzy, sensual number featuring some of Mariah's and collaborator Walter Afanasieff's best songwriting; her vocal delivery is as emotive as it is technically powerful. "Make it Happen" follows, mixing gospel-style vocals and lyrics with a heavy dance beat courtesy of the C+C Music Factory. Of the lesser-known tracks, "If it's Over" and "The Wind" stand out. The former, co-written by Carole King and Mariah, is an organic soul ballad with fitting horn accompaniment. "The Wind," written over a piece by Russell Freeman, is a full blown jazz track with strong lyrics and an elegant, understated vocal performance from Mariah. That said, this album is not perfect. Many of the up-tempo numbers don't hold up well after 1991, while some of the grandiose ballads run together. Mariah had yet to fully develop into a songwriter; several plagiarism lawsuits were filed. It's true "Emotions" sounds a lot like soul classics "Got to be Real" and "Best of My Love," and "Can't Let Go" is remarkably similar to Keith Sweat's "Make it Last." You won't find stronger singing on any other Mariah Carey album, but some of tracks suffocate under gimmicky vocal gymnastics. Ultimately, Emotions is a worthy follow-up that set the standard for many of Mariah's future releases. 3.5 Stars.

Inbetween her debut and Music Box, I kind of lost track of and faith with Mariah Carey. I was also getting into the grunge and alternative scene, but the first single I heard, the title track, made me think, "OK, what's going on here? No ballad for the first single?" I've finally been sitting down and listening to it and see I've misjudged this album. The catchy danceability outdoes that of "Someday" and she lets out more than her share of piercing high notes I've associated with her. That and three other songs were done by the plant managers of the C&C Music Factory, Robert Clivilles and David Coles.
OK, anytime you see anything written by Mariah and Walter Afanasieff, think to yourself, "wonderful ballad with keyboards", because that's what "And You Don't Remember" is one of the sad heartbreak ones, which leaves her "stranded here/in nothingness/with only tears/and loneliness." "Can't Let Go" is another one of those ballads, her voice is emotionally stronger in this one, awash with the piano-synths, drum programming, and her backing vocals.
The upbeat funky R&B of "Make It Happen" is another C&C production, and one of Mariah's religious songs on not giving up in the struggle with life.
Seeing Carole King's name after Mariah in the songwriting for "If It's Over" was surprising. This gospelly ballad includes a trumpet, trombone, tenor sax, and bari-sax, so it goes all out with instruments. She asks for outright honesty and communication instead of uncomfortable avoidance. "If it's over, let me go" she sings, and demonstrates her strong vocal power here.
She tries to do her best approx. of an Aretha wail in the beginning of the C&C-produced "You're So Cold." The dilemma of staying with a cold and cruel-hearted man is the theme here.
