5.0 out of 5 stars I agree with Denny June 23, 2004
By Tyler
Format:Audio CD
This Mariah Carey's CD is old, but still her best. She is the best-selling female performer of the 1990s, Mariah Carey rose to superstardom on the strength of her stunning five-octave voice; an elastic talent who moved easily from glossy ballads to hip-hop-inspired dance-pop, she earned frequent comparison to rivals Whitney Houston and Celine Dion, but did them both one better by composing all of her own material. Born in Long Island, NY, on March 27, 1970, Carey moved to New York City at the age of 17 -- just one day after graduating high school -- to pursue a music career; there she befriended keyboardist Ben Margulies, with whom she began writing songs. Her big break came as a backing vocalist on a studio session with dance-pop singer Brenda K. Starr, who handed Carey's demo tape to Columbia Records head Tommy Mottola at a party. According to legend, Mottola listened to the tape in his limo while driving home that same evening, and was so immediately struck by Carey's talent that he doubled back to the party to track her down.
This extremely impressive debut is replete with smooth-sounding ballads and uplifting dance/R&B cuts. Carey convincingly seizes many opportunities to display her incredible vocal range on such memorable tracks as the popular "Vision of Love" (featured during her television debut on The Arsenio Hall Show, an appearance noted by many as her formal introduction to stardom), the energetic "Someday," and the moody sounds of the hidden treasure "Vanishing." With this collection of songs acting as a springboard for future successes, Carey establishes a strong standard of comparison for other breakthrough artists of this genre.
I don't trust you music fan (who rated just 1 star), but I trust every people who think this music is great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vision of love, and a voice to match September 30, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Mariah Carey. Yes, I remember 1990, when her debut album appeared and went multi-platinum. A full decade before hip-hop and guest rappers sprouted like duckweed on her albums. And before she did the ritual cover song per album, not that I mind that, as long as it's done properly. She was a breath of fresh air while I was at college. And that piercing high note she hit didn't annoy me at all. I was enthralled.
From the moment I heard the opening majestic keyboard, I waited with baited breath, wondering what the deal was with "Vision Of Love", and when I heard that voice, a rich, soulful vocal that could reach gospel-like power, I instantly stopped wondering. And how ironic that a religious song like this could spend weeks atop a normally secular chart. People were apparently attuned to the chorus and her voice.
Mariah then tackles poverty in America and apartheid in South Africa in the soulful but danceable "There's Got To Be A Way", which calls for "We Are The World"-type compassion and change initiated by human unity. That gospel-like backing vocals enhance this song, which could've been a single if not for the serious message.
"I Don't Wanna Cry" will make you cry if it hits you in the right frame, namely a blue heart. "I know we swore it was forever/but it hurts too much to stay around" she sings with poignant resignation. That sultry whisper and lowered register on the final title lyric was brought to my attention by Eric Andrews, my colleague extraordinaire, for which I say thank you once again. Yes, it is, isn't it?
The engaging R&B dance number "Someday" was the current single played before I finally decided to take a risk and get this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Filler Here - Best Mariah Album January 1, 2006
A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
Along with Emotions & her Unplugged album, this is the best in my opinion. Every song is good and there's no filler. You can listen to the whole album without having to touch your skip button. This was a more innocent Mariah with heartfelt and sassy lyrics. Her influences are apparant; there's a lot of gospel/r&b/soul influences throughout. I recommend this album. If you're hesitating to buy it, don't. You'll be more than satisfied with it. (Get Emotions & her Unplugged Album also)

Vision Of Love - When I listen to this song I always forget that it's from 1990. I never get sick of hearing it and it sounds so fresh and new even today, unlike some of the other songs on the album that sound dated (for example, All In Your Mind) - not that that's a bad thing, but it makes this song interesting in particular because it's timeless. It's a great song & her first single ever/first #1 ever.

There's Got To Be A Way - A good song, but the message is a bit serious for my taste. That doesn't take away from the fact that it's a good song though.

I Don't Wanna Cry - The vocals are beautiful on this one, and it has beautiful lyrics, but it's a bit long and repetitive after awhile.

Someday - I adore this song. So great. It's so catchy and has some empowering lyrics. It's a fun song to sing while in the car.

Vanishing - This is the most raw and least-produced sounding on the album. It almost sounds like it could have been live. A gospelish song that Mariah produced herself. It sounds like it meant a lot to her & that makes it all the more beautiful. It's a moody song that makes you think, and the vocals are gorgeous.

All In Your Mind - A mellow poppy song. It sounds like a run of the mill song until the reggae-breakdown that is simply amazing.
