Product Description

This has the best collection of songs

Amazon.com

These days she's fodder for tabloid writers and late-night comics, but way back in the '90s Mariah Carey ruled the charts. This two-disc collection offers up evidence why, for better or worse, Mariah's five-octave, pop/R&B stylings set the diva standard. Greatest Hits culls its offerings from Carey's five albums on Sony (she is now signed to Virgin), and you get all the facets of her platinum-plus sound. From the soulful smolder of her 1990 debut "Vision of Love" (still one of her best tracks) to the coyer-than-thou duet with Jay Z ("Heartbreaker"), Carey thrills, trills, and hits notes that only canines comprehend. Fans will gobble this collection up, but inclusion of some of Carey's more adventuresome remixes (e.g. the Puffy-produced "Fantasy," featuring ODB) might have made this package more noteworthy. --Amy Linden

Format: Audio CD
Mariah Carey is perhaps one of the most beautiful creatures God has ever created. Her sweet sexy voice is so pure and beautiful. The music on this album is for the true romantic.

The first CD is more intense yet still has some very romantic songs, while the second is much deeper and emotional overall.

"Butterfly" is still my favorite song because it speaks of how we are all individual souls that cannot be possessed. It always creates such beautiful images of a summer day and of the freedom to love without possessing. "My All" is highly emotional and one of the most evocative songs about longing I have ever heard.

"I'm thinking of you
In my sleepless solitude tonight
If its wrong to love you
Then my heart just won't let me be right
Cause I'm drowned in you..."

I saw her interviewed once when she was talking about helping children find families and I just thought what a beautiful soul she must be. The inner qualities she possesses seem to come out in her music.

I hope that no matter where life takes her, that she will always find enough unconditional love. It is the soul's deepest desire.

Mariah's voice is just amazing! If you buy only one of her albums, this one would be my recommendation. I would have
been happy without the bonus track.

While never accused of being a particularly meaningful song interpreter, Mariah Carey has nonethelesss produced some of the best pop of the last decade, the majority of which is presented here in this very generous twenty-eight song compilation. While her career is seemingly going even further south thanks to her unjustly criticized GLITTER album(and the accompanying flop of a movie), this is a good reminder of why, at her peak, few could come close to Carey's track record. While she was constantly prone to adult contemporary sap('I Don't Wanna Cry', the horrifically maudlin 'My All'--one of her worst records ever), she also produced a number of first-rate singles('Vision Of Love', 'Fantasy', 'Emotions'). Sixteen of the tracks are carry-overs from her previous 1'S collection(rendering that set pointless), along with tracks from RAINBOW, as well as a completely unnecessary remix of her holiday track 'All I Want For Christmas Is You'. Additionally, the set includes several of Carey's non-commercial singles(the sterling 'Forever', 'Butterfly'), as well as one of her best, most fully realized songs ever('Underneath the Stars', which was inexplicably never released). One minor omission her is that of 'Breakdown', one of the few highlights from her otherwise dreary BUTTERFLY album. Otherwise, this is a great way to filter through the cream of Carey's Sony years.

Mariah's 'official' "Greatest Hits" was inevitible, albeit a little too soon after "#1's." Though the two sets were bound to overlap each other, "Greatest Hits" is an agonyzing disappointment for fans who had their hopes up for the ultimate Mariah Carey collection. The omissions are glaring; "Breakdown" is nowhere to be found, though Mariah insisted her real "Greatest Hits" would include it in the "#1's liner notes. Also absent are "Never Forget You," "Crybaby," "The Roof," any number of Mariah' hit remixes, and popular B-sides like "Slipping Away," "Do You Think Of Me," and "Everything Fades Away." Their disclusion could be excused if space were a factor, but the fact that they were replaced by such uninsipired tripe as "Underneath The Stars," a useless remix of "All I Want For Christmas Is You," and three of the four weak bonus tracks from "#1's" -- only one of which was even a small hit -- makes the aformetioned ommissions disturbing. Whether the tracks were selected by Mariah to spite Sony, or by Sony to spite Mariah, "Greatest Hits" is not worth buying by any stretch. Keep "#1's," and maybe pick up "MTV Unplugged" instead. Those two discs are a much better listen than these two.

As a casual fan, for many years I just had her "1's" collection and figured it was enough. Well recently I got this "Greatest Hits" fairly cheap and quickly realized how much better it really is. Besides the inclusion of more tracks, I like this collection more for the songs that didn't reach the top of the charts. Some of the minor hits I like alot more than the #1 hits, specifically "Can't Let Go", "Make It Happen", and the cover of "Without You". I think my current favorite here is "Anytime You Need A Friend". That song is excellent, and is one of a few I had completely forgotten about. Another plus to this set is the inclusion of the songs from "Rainbow". In a perfect world this would also have "Breakdown" and "Against All Odds", but it's still an amazing package. The only other surprise to me was the lack of pictures. She usually gives us some nice shots, but not here.

There is a big problem with the sequence of "hits" on this CD. First off, as many fans have noticed, this is basically the same songs and (almost) same order as her previous hits album "#1's" which is a shame... because this album could've been so much better. Because I already bought "#1's" I decided not to get it.
My version would be somewhat like this.
** DISC ONE (SLOW SONGS)
Vision of Love
Hero
Love Takes Time
Anytime You Need A Friend
Forever
My All
Butterfly
Underneath The Stars
Can't Take That Away
I Don't Wanna Cry
Without You
Can't Let Go
I Still Believe
When You Believe
One Sweet Day
Thank God I Found You
Never Too Far
** DISC 2 (FASTER SONGS)
Someday
There's Got To Be A Way
Emotions (12" Club Mix)
Fantasy (regular version)
Honey
All I Want For Christmas Is You (ORIGINAL VERSION!)
Always Be My Baby
HeartBreaker (original version)
Loverboy
Make It Happen
BONUS TRACKS or BONUS DISC
Heartbreaker (remix ft. Da Brat and Missy "Misdamenor" Elliot)
Thank God I Found You ("Make It Last Forever" Remix)
Honey (bad boy remix)
Fantasy (Remix ft. ODB)
Breakdown (Mo Thugs Remix... basically same version but extended raps)
Loverboy (remix)
Basically it could've been somewhere along the lines of Whitney's GH. Mariah has so many remixes she decided to make her own Remix album... so it wouldnt be as good if she had them on the 2nd disc. She could had it like first disc-slow songs and seocnd disc-fast songs. She could've included a bonus dvd too.
