Mariah and Miguel sound very good together on this record, their voices meshed together melodically well to create a great song.

Fans have been waiting for this often-pushed back record for years and won't be disappointed. As Mariah said herself, the album needs to be heard as a body of work rather than based on the radio-friendliness of the singles. It's her most solid work as a whole in a long time. The content ranges from ballads and hip hop numbers to soothing R&B songs and disco-friendly hits.

I've purchased the Deluxe Version from Target because I need all the songs but I'm buying this version too because you can never have too many Mariah albums!

1. "Cry." The album opens rather unexpectedly with a ballad where most fans are used to hearing an up-tempo song. It's a perfect introduction to the album. It's probably her best vocal on the album and already a fan-favorite. People compare it to "Vision of Love" but it's more restrained and works beautifully. 10/10

2. "Faded" is a mid-tempo R&B song that people are comparing to "We Belong Together." Although you can hear some similarities in the piano and the final notes, it stands on its own. It's sure to be a new Mariah classic. It could be a good single eventually. 10/10

3. "Dedicated" is what many critics are calling the 90's throw-back track. It does sound like something that could've been on the Daydream album and is always appreciated. I have to admit, this song really grew on me. 10/10

4. "#Beautiful" is Mariah's biggest hit of this decade that nay-sayers "underperformed" which is ridiculous because it sold over a million copies and was the song of the summer. The collaboration with Miguel is, just like the title, beautiful. It really won MC over some new fans and made her prove her relevance almost 25 years after she burst onto the scene. 10/10

Mariah Carey is perhaps one of the most polarizing artist in my recent memory. Spanning a commercial career of almost 25 years I can't think of many artist whose catalog goes from singing what would now be considered adult contemporary pop music to pop/r&b/hip hop fusion. Its interesting because I appreciate Mariah's artistry in all of its forms. I can see her musical brilliance even in those moments where people are divided on which era of Mariah they'd rather hear. Now, let's get something straight. I don't consider myself a lamb. I was riding with Mariah before this phenomenon of naming your fans ever came into existence. I just love her voice from 1990 until now. Granted there was a period of time around Rainbow that I felt something was off but I'm a fan none the less. With the Elusive Chanteuse, I hear elements of all Mariah's back catalog all on one album.

It opens up with Cry. Which is classic 1990/1991 Mariah. And I must admit, I love that Mariah. Her voice is truly remarkable and make no mistake Mariah can still blow her face off despite whatever challenges vocally she has faced. This song lets me know that Mariah of 1990 is still there but she's moved on with her artistry. Some like it some don't. "Faded" is another gem on the album that fuses the more modern sounds with the carefree vocals that Mariah is known for. Her voice lifts effortlessly on this number. The disco/2step song "You don't know what to do" w/ Wale is a smash waiting to happen. "Supernatural" is a cute song with dembabies that she affectionately calls her kids and I enjoyed hearing them on the song. I got the point of the song with the kids on it. "Meteorite". This is a line dancing song if I ever heard and its excellent.

First, let me start by saying that I'm appalled at how the album sales are. Only 100,000 sales since the May 23rd release. Really?

"Pair lackluster singles with an awkward album title, multiple delays in releasing the record, and the fact that it's been five years since she released a non-holiday album (2009's Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel), and low sales are "not surprising really or hard to imagine," says Paul Grein, pop music writer at Yahoo Music's Chart Watch blog."

Mariah has been singing and performing for over 25 years. I think she realizes that she doesn't need the fame anymore. She performs and produces work for the people who have stood by her and are genuine fans of her music. She doesn't tour much and she prefers to spend time with 'dem babies' which I don't blame her. She doesn't need to prove anything anymore.

I have read so much negation surrounding the album but it's come down to once opinion: my own. I absolutely positively LOVE this album. It's nostalgic, futuristic, and grounded all in one. There was not song that I didn't enjoy and there were many that I gushed over. I was and still am enamored with the album. I recently went on a 4 hour trip and I played that album back to back 4 times on the way.

I do concur that older artists who have been in the industry longer have difficulty to maintain their longevity in the lime light due to new artists coming out however I just can't see Mariah going anywhere. This album is packed with so much talent and memorable music. Many were expecting her to go back to her roots but why do that? Your roots simply keep you grounded. You don't need to go back to them as long as you are fortifying your branches.

On to the review of the album:

Cry - Amazing.
