You’ll no doubt enjoy the sound of the beautifully remastered songs on this CD (as opposed to MP3's that contain less information, which translate into compromised sound). But we think the thing you'll appreciate most about this Playlist is that even though you didn't make it, you might wish you did.

This CD comes close, including surprising tracks, like the beautiful "Rainbow Interlude" (sadly, though, is better with "Petals" preceding it as it was on the Rainbow album), the very sensual "Bliss" (one of my personal favorites of hers) and "Babydoll", as well as some introspection in "Outside," "Looking in," and "I Am Free." It even includes probably the best song from her debut album, "Vanishing," which she wrote when she was still a teenager. "Vanishing" is one of those songs that you need to hear at least once -- the lyrics are intelligent but vague enough that you can put your own interpretation to it -- just as any good poetry should be.
However, I notice that there are a couple of songs on here which are on just about every other compilation. Most notoriously, "Dreamlover," no matter how quintessentially Mariah this song is, it is overplayed STILL, almost 20 years post-release. I realize they had to include some of her better-known songs on here to attract more of an audience, but I feel the compilation could have been stronger without those songs, and replaced with some of her other songs.Read more ›

This is a great compilation of lesser known Mariah songs.
As a Mariah fan, I have to say that often her biggest and most famous songs may not necessary be her best. Read more
