I wouldn't classify myself as a huge fan of Mariah Carey, but this much is certain: she usually releases some pretty impressive remixes. "The Remixes" doesn't boast any new material: it's an unmixed compilation of previously released club mixes that cover her entire career to date. Most of the tracks appear in their full length version and are divided between 2 discs: one is house music and another is hip hop. Maybe it's because I'm biased towards house music, but I found the first disc to be the more enjoyable of the two. David Morales near dominates this set with some impressive re-workings of cuts like "Dreamlover" and "Fantasy." I'm not a huge fan of the original versions of either of these songs, but Morales gives these cuts his own disco flavor to make you forget the banality of their lyrics. Disc two is for the hip hop heads, and there's enough good stuff on this disc to make it noteworthy. Some standouts include the remix of "My All," which segues into a remake of the Loose Ends classic "Stay Awhile," and "Thank God I Found You" more than liberally samples Keith Sweat's "Make it Last Forever." The disc closes with one of 2003's catchiest singles, "I Know What You Want" featuring Busta Rhymes. The 13 cuts on this disc are pretty enjoyable samples of radio-friendly hip hop, although not all are remixes. "Sweetheart" (with Jermaine Dupri) and "Crybaby" (with Snoop Dogg) both appear in their original versions. I didn't seem to mind that, for they blend in with the rest of the other tracks nicely. While "The Remixes" doesn't really present anything new, it's a pretty good compilation of Mariah's club hits.

This Remix Album is NOT from Mariah. Do not be fooled! Tommy Mottola over at Sony Records put it out in yet another attempt to capitalize off of her talent. The reason the album has not yet been released in the US, rumor has it, is because he is having trouble getting the rights to one of her songs off "Charmbracelet." There is no doubt that vocally and lyrically Mariah is on top of the game. She is the most talented singer I have ever heard. These remixes do not do her justice, but they do offer some really funky and fun renditions to some of her now considered classic songs. Stay Awhile and Make It Last alone will make the album worth buying. They are very different from the original songs, so they are almost like their own song and not really a remix. This album is worth buying if you are a diehard Mariah fan. However, it sours the experience a bit to know that Mottola will be profiting from the sale. Also, look for the US Release, which is now scheduled to be released in October 2003, because that will be one to get, too, if you are a collector. However, if you absolutely can't wait, and you want the few extra tracks on this Import, then order it now. Personally I think any CD Mariah sings on is worth buying.

Being the huge Mariah Carey fan that I am, I rushed out a few weeks ago and bought this CD the day it was released. I wasn't expecting much because Remix albums never impress me much, but I have to say that I am rather pleased with this purchase. No way is this my favourite Mariah album, I don't even think I'd include it in a list of my top 10 albums by her, but it is a good remix album which brings together some of Mariah's biggest hits from the past ten years on two discs of superb Mariah remixes. Such is the popularity of Mariah Carey's remixes that you get two discs here for the price of one. Disc One features nine dance remixes that are made for the clubs, while Disc Two has twelve R'n'B classics from Mariah in the latter part of her career.

Disc One starts off with the brilliant "My All - Morales 'My' Club Mix." Thunderous beats and gospel-style vocals from backing singers work wonderfully with Mariah's soulful voice on this original ballad, reworked for the clubs. "Heartbreaker/ If You Should Ever Be Lonely - Junior's Heartbreaker Club Mix" is up next and runs for more than ten minutes of disco perfection. "Fly Away (Butterfly Reprise) - Fly Away Club Mix" is an extended version of the reprise that is featured on Mariah's 1997 Butterfly album. This version isn't as good, but the vocal styles and instruments half way through are wonderful. "Anytime You Need A Friend - C&C Club Version" and "Fantasy - Def Club Mix" are up next, but don't quite live up to the standard we have seen so far. "Honey - Classic Mix" is exactly as it says, classic! The beat drives the song totally. "Dreamlover - Def Club Mix" is just weird! The rhythm at the start sounds so camp and old that you can't help but like it. Her vocals dip and rise all over the place, and it works rather well.

Mariah is without a doubt the best vocalist of all time. Her voice is tired these days however her old records stand up today, and still haven't been topped. Normally remixes are the typical dance beat standard, the original song just sped up and given a few switch ups. Mariah went in and re-recorded vocals on her remixes, house and hip hop. her vocal performances on remixes like 'Anytime You Need A Freind C+C remix) and 'Honey(Classic Mix)' are incredible and people wonder where her voice went. All these remixes are really good, however there are some left out that i wish had been included. like 'Cant Take That Away(Morales Triumphant revival remix)' is amazing with the harmonica all over it, also 'I Still Believe(Pure Imagination)' 'Make It Happen Extended mix', 'The Roof' ft Mobb Deep', 'Never Too Far/Hero Medley Al B. rich inspiration mix' etc. Im also dissapointed that the disc 2 includes the 'Butterfly' album version of 'Breakdown' i assumed it would be the 'Mo Thugs' mix which is the same song with a longer rap from Bone Thugs, i already have this version of the 'Butterfly' album, but whatever.. I hope someday soon she releases a complete collection of all her remixes, because they are where she really shines artistically and vocally.
