Product Description

Has one or two very light surface marks, but plays fine, sounds sublime. From a well cared for personal collection. Buy with confidence--see my feedback.

Amazon.com

Despite songbird Mariah Carey's emotional troubles during the release of the soundtrack to Glitter, she has never sounded giddier. In keeping with the semiautobiographical flick's 1980s time frame, Glitter mines the rich and rhythmic fields of discofied funk and club-friendly jams, and Carey soars on thumping covers of Indeep's "Last Night a DJ Saved My Life" (featuring DJ Clue, Busta Rhymes, and New Jack of the moment Fabolous), and Cherrelle's skittish, synth-soaked love song "Didn't Mean to Turn You On," which in a nice touch, is revisited by its production auteurs Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. Also well worth a listen is "All My Life," a sweet and nasty Rick James track that finds Mariah looser than she's ever been; it's on those uptempo jams that Mariah is all sass and sex. Unfortunately, she loses the mood on the by-the-numbers ballads, which slow the party down just as it's getting hot. --Amy Linden

On September 11, 2001, a very strange feeling was with me when I purchased GLITTER. I couldn't help but feel completely guilty about my excitement of getting the new Mariah Carey record when so many people had died brutally just hours before. I'm guessing this album will always somewhat remind me of the tragedy. As I opened the CD booklet, I saw something that was very ironic and a little creepy: Mariah is wearing a "I LOVE NY" shirt.
Anyway, GLITTER is Mariah's tenth round for the record-buying public, and it seems she's basically playing the same cards she's been playing since 1997. A little rap, some fun pop, various R&B, and a whole lotta soul. On "Loverboy," she cuts it up with a cameo from Cameo and ends up with one of my favorite Carey songs. (Which kind of scares me since so many people despise this track.) In this fashion, she finds herself rummaging through songs like "Didn't Mean To Turn You On" (killer beginning) and "Want You." Her signature ballads are here, but they seem to have a relaxed diva structure to them. And...what's this? Do I hear songs that don't require a lyric sheet for me to follow while listening? Wow, Mariah stops whispering and actually punctuates in a way that a listener can...understand. "Last Night A DJ Saved My Life" is without a doubt one of my favorites, especially the lines: "There's not a problem that I can't fix/Cause I can do it in the mix/And if your man gives you trouble/Just you move out on the double/And you don't let it trouble your brain." Highlights also include the savvy "Reflections (Care Enough)" and "Never Too Far." Although "If We" doesn't bother me per say, I agree with the reviewer who asked who the "featured" artist really is. Come on, Mariah, don't joke with us.

Mariah Carey has finally gotten back to what made her one of the most adored female artists of the past decade. Singing gorgous powerful ballads that showcase her miraculous voice. Also thrown in a bunch of fun uptempo funky tracks that show Mariah can be just as playful. Most noteably are the 2 remakes Last Night a DJ Saved My Life and Didn't Mean To Turn You On. The production is wonderful and Mariah sounds as if she's having a ball. But of course the standout tracks are the ballads. Lead The Way, Reflections(Care Enough), and Never Too Far are right up there with some of my Mariahs best ballads, and vocally she has never sounded better. Starting off very soft and building to a powerful climax with Mariah belting out one of her signature high notes, each song will leave you in awe of this incredible talent. The reason for the 4 stars is that the album focuses too much on her "guest artist". As I much as I respect artists such as Mystikal, Ja Rule, and Da Brat, I would much rather have only Mariah on these songs. The other artists are only a distractment to the album. But this is still a wonderful album that will continue to prove Mariah as the Diva of the Decade. Mariah-my prayers are with you in your time of need. Get Well Soon...your fans miss you!

Mariah. Try saying her name and see what kinds of reactions you get. The common reaction is that of disapproval.
People are quick to point out what they don't like about her.
"Oh, she turned into a slut" or "She is so fake." The remarks vary from her fashion sense to her personal life. But the last thing people talk about is her talent.
Mariah did evolve from the girl-next-door into a blonde bombshell. Yes, she also happened to be married to music Svengali Tommy Mottola and then went on to date New York Yankee Derek Jeter and then Latin heartthrob Luis Miguel. And she has been scantily clad in most of her recent videos. But does that determine the credibility of the music or the artist?
Regardless of how people try to describe her, one thing is undeniable. She is has satisfied millions with her work - and that is all that matters.
We all know the Cinderella-like story. Little mixed-race New Yorker with a huge voice attends a party as Brenda K. Starr's back-up singer and meets Sony CEO Tommy Mottola and hands him a demo tape. Mottola then looks all over for her and offers her an album deal with Columbia Records.
From there Mariah grew into an icon of our times, breaking all imaginable sales records by Elvis, The Beatles and Michael Jackson. Furthermore, Mariah has 16 No. 1 songs and it is clear that she is not stopping.
Becoming the best selling female artist of the '90s was not easy.
During the mid '90s when pop was not as hip as today, Mariah was one of the only beacons to keep the pop flame alive, along with the likes of Janet Jackson and Toni Braxton.
Her album "Music Box" was bashed by critics but went on to become one of the best selling albums of all time with hits such as "Dreamlover," "Hero" and "Anytime You Need A Friend.

It's odd, you take a voice that could sing the phonebook and make a hit out of it, combine that with a career of writing and producing all of your hits and you would think the word "respected" would be a word that follows your name in every print. But alas, we rarely, if never read the respected Mariah Carey releases a soundtrack album that is simply beautiful.
"Glitter" is the accompanying soundtrack to the movie with same name opening Sept. 21. The movie is set in the 80s so naturally the album is set in the 80s. Carey, a child of the 80s, is no fool here. She embarked on Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, the basic soundmakers of that era, to co-executive produce this album and suprisingly the sound is replicated, if not mirrored exactly to that time.
Like every Carey album of late, the opening song is a simple tune with multi-layered vocals drafted over a sample. Carey's song this time is "Loverboy" and the sample is Cameo's "Candy." Is the track a landmark in Carey's progression as an artist? No. Is it a good song? I would say it is. Carey's vocals are coy and sly and Cameo's cameo is welcomed, as is Ludacrous and Da Brat's rap vocals in the remix also featured on the album. The song does lack a certain edge we expect from Carey's lead off single, but it is the only misstep from the album.
"Lead the Way" a ballad that is sure to bring back memories of the young, thin girl we saw singing "Vision of Love" live @ the Grammys. She simply sparkles in the song, building up to a marvelous climax that leads the song to become a classic.
From here on "Glitter" becomes a tapestry of both Carey's strong vocals and the sounds of the 80s.
