Product Description

Mariah Carey ~ Rainbow

Amazon.com

Rainbow, Mariah Carey's seventh studio long-player, is something like a concept album. Its theme is the various stages of the "emotional roller coaster," as she puts it, of her divorce and subsequent rebound. Carey continues to walk the line between streetwise hip-hop soul and adult-contemporary acceptability, with the former not surprisingly offering most of the disc's high points. "Heartbreaker," the first single, is a likeable piece of bubble-gum R&B with grit borrowed from guest Jay-Z; the remix, with Missy Elliott, Da Brat, and DJ Clue on board, is a different enough piece of work that its appearance only a few cuts after the original version doesn't jar. Another groove-intensive track, the Snoop Dogg duet "Crybaby," is so sly that one hopes the two collaborate again. Of course, it wouldn't be a Mariah record without at least one major lapse in taste; here that bill is filled with a cover of Phil Collins's melodramatic "Against All Odds." --Rickey Wright

5.0 out of 5 stars I love my Mariah December 17, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Respect. The most coveted word in all of show business, it is also the hardest position to achieve. On "Rainbow", Mariah Carey's 9th studio release, the singer may be earning just that. Cover art aside, "Rainbow" pushes to display Carey as a newly freed individual, both in musical content and artistic style. "Rainbow" has arguably found its footing in R & B and Pop more clearly than her past albums(note:"Butterfly")have. She has finally hit a stable stride, capturing the attention of of both the Adult-Contemporary world as well as Hip Hop audiences alike. The intelligent pairing of Carey and Jay-Z on "HeartBreaker" gives the buouyant song an urban boost; on the flip side, her remake of Phil Collin's mid-80's power ballad hit "Against All Odds" will more than likely strengthen her already tight grip on the Pop world. Of course, the album has its moments, on tracks like "Bliss"(where her vocals sound strangely reminiscent of a broken whistle), or "X-Girlfriend", a song which could easily be interchangeable with any cut offered by younger ingenues like Brandy. Still, it's on gospel-infused tracks like "Thank God I Found You" with 98 Degrees and Joe on which Carey excels the most, and where the proverbial "pot-of-gold" at the end of this "Rainbow" can be found. There's a lot to like here, and this is definitely an album worth giving a listen to.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rainbow is Right June 14, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Rainbow seems to be the best title she could pick for this album. All the songs are different in every possible way (not meaning it's bad.) But through it all Mariah pulls it off to make a great album which I give 4 stars.
1) Heartbreaker(4.5/5.0)- This is one of my favorite songs off the album. It is a fast-paced danceable song. The beats and tones are excellent (not to mention the vocals). This songs also features rapper Jay-Z which adds more appeal to the song.
2)Can't Take That Away(5.0/5.0)- This song is one of the best songs on the album, if not the best alone. The vocals and message in the song will get you tear-eyed. She sings this song with such feeling and amazement. Undescribeable.
3) Bliss(4.0/5.0)- This song is a ballad and really shows off Mariah's strength vocal wise. The lyrics to this song can be described as sexy. I only gave it a four because the vocals are repeated enough to drive you crazy.
4)How Much(3.0/5.0)- It's not the best but it's okay. The song features R&B star usher but he really doesn't seem to help the weakness of the song. The beat is good though.
5)After Tonight(5.0/5.0)- This song is sooooo beautiful. The beat and tone are of the Latin flavor. Her vocals are great. The only flaw is that it sounds like MY ALL (but who cares! )
6)Ex-Girlfriend (4.0/5.0)- It's okay. It's an r&b style song. But not much to it.
7)Heartbreaker Remix(5.0/5.0)- This remix is one of her best. It features Missy Elliot, Da Brat, & DJ Clue. It's R&B rhythm with the bouncy beat is just unstoppable.
9) Against All Odds(4.5/5.0)- This song is way better than Phil Collins's version. Has more soothing and flexible vocals. But the beat doesn't really compliment her voice.
10) Crybaby(5.0/5.0)- Smooth R&B song.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mariah's Best Yet February 23, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This has got to be Mariah's best yet. She has only gotten better since time has gone on. She used to sing soulful pop music but then gradually grew into a more hip-hop style, but her heart has always been in her music. The standout tracks on this album are "Against All Odds", an awesome power ballad where Mariah's voice shines as good as ever, "Can't Take That Away", the lyrics really spoke to me, and they will to you also, "After Tonight", a Latin flavored ballad, "How Much" with Usher, a very catchy upbeat song I'm sure you'll love, and "Heartbreaker" with Jay-Z, I mean it's catchy and fun, and her voice is great. These are just my favorite songs I picked out, but all the others are just as fabulous. Mariah can definitely write and sing, and she has many more #1's coming her way. And this is why "Rainbow" is respectively Mariah's best effort yet. Go pick up a copy NOW; you won't regret it. Trust me!

3.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful rainbow, but starting to fade November 28, 1999
Format:Audio CD
I've been a fan of Mariah's since I was twelve and I listened to "Music Box," which my parents owned. She has one of the most amazing voices ever, despite what anyone else says. Who wouldn't want to sing like that? She is also extremely talented because, unlike many other "divas," (Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, etc.) she co-writes all her music and she can successfully mix hip-hop vibes with soaring, soulful ballads. When I first heard "Heartbreaker" on the radio, I couldn't wait for "Rainbow" to come out. Now that I have it, I must say I am slightly dissappointed. Songs like "Petals" and "Can't Take That Away From Me" rank up there with "Hero" and "Vision of Love." But sometimes, the album sounds just like "Butterfly." I loved "Butterfly" (probably her best album), but I expected even more of a development in "Rainbow." Still, if you are a long time Mariah fan like me, get the cd right now. If you sort of like her, it's a little bit of a risk. If you are a hip hop fan who thinks this will fit in with your rap collection, you're wrong. Still, overall, I like it.
