With a physical and emotional breakdown and a lamentable movie debut in the musical bio-pic, Glitter, Mariah Carey's star may have faded a bit in the new millennium, but let us remember who still holds the title of best-selling female performer of the 1990s. Carey rose to superstardom on the strength of her stunning five-octave voice, a gift that she applied to both syrupy ballads and hip-hop-inspired dance-pop. During her early career, she evoked frequent comparisons to rivals Whitney Houston and Celine Dion, but showed them both up by composing all of her own material. So it's not hubrist that this is her second greatest hits package. In addtion to all of the chart-topping singles included on her 1998 #1's collection ("Vision of Love," "Hero," and "One Sweet Day" just to name a few), this two-disc set also features hits from her last two discs for Sony - 1997's Butterfly and 1999's Rainbow. Highlights from those discs include the club thumpers "Honey" and "Heartbreaker," and the moving ballad "Thank God I Found You," featuring Joe and 98 Degrees. Personal problems aside, Carey is still a pop-music making force, and these are the songs that make the whole world sing.

Ok I just wanna say that this is an AMAZING album and everyone should go buy this to see why Mariah has been such a big artist in the past decade!!!
I LOVE MARIAH! She is an exceptional artist, producer, writer and actress. This album is a must have for all Mariah's fans.
Mariah has finally put together a collection of all her best songs. This certainly won't be her last greatest hits album, because she just keeps going on!
Mariah Carey has finally released a greatest hits album. She's been around for a long time, and her music style has changed. You can definately see the changes in the songs she sings, and that makes it better. This certainley won't be her last greatest hits album, because she will have many more hits to come! Go Mariah!
Following the disasterous reception or Glitter and the Glitter soundtrack - Mariah Carey offers her best-of compiled on quite an exceptional set. Including all of her biggest and most memorable hits ''My all'', ''Fantasy'', ''Hero'', ''Anytime you need a friend'' and the gorgeous bonus track ''Cant take that away'' and a lush remix of ''All I want for Christmas'' - you wont be disappointed. You wont find ''loverboy'' or ''never too far'' here - simply because they just dont cut it! Thank god Mariah is putting Glitter very quickly behind her!
Mariah is one of the best singers of today! What more can I say?
Mariah Carey is definitely one of the greatest singer to ever walk the planet earth. I believe this best thing she could have done by bringing the greatest hits of all time together on one album. SHE IS JUST SIMPLY THE BEST!!!!!!!!!
Unbelievable! This has to be one of the best greatest hits collections to come out in a while on a single disk. You can tell she put this collection together her self. These are all songs that best convey her vocal skills. Mariah is such a talented artist; I hope this collection doesn't mean the end!
Ok I am a really really huge Mariah fan. I am going ot buy this the first day it comes out. Even tho its not an LP we need to make Mariah at #1 AGAIN! My fav song of all time is Thank God I Found You... This is a love song and im really happy that i got to share it with my love. Mariah will keep on being the best there is the best there ever will be and the best there ever was! IM PROUD TO BE A LAMB OF HERS! EVERYONE BUY HER NEW SINGLE TOO ON DEC 11th. PEACE!!
Mariah carey is all that.And for all you haters you can go somewhere...she has a beatiful voice and a pretty personality, and yes i know her.peace
She has a wonderful voice and the nicest pair of jugs.
With all her 15 #1's plus many top 10 hits, she has really set a new way of music to every genration. Having the most hit songs, and being the best-selling artist of all time, this greatest hits compilation is a sure must-have. So all LAMBS out there, buy the album and let's make this album go to #1. Go QUEEN O' DIVA. Go MARIAH CAREY!!!
oh my god, what can i say? Mariah is totally awesome! she's the greatest!!! i love her!! she's the best!!!
Excellent compilation!! Every hit is on here! every Mariah fan will love this cd. She is an amazing talent. I hope there is more to come!
another top quality album with some of the finest tunes from her past 9albums, shame it misses some of the gems that were on Glitter! but none the less top quality. this badboy will be in the cd player for a long time to come
Mariah is truly a legend in the music industry and no one will ever come close to her! Mariah is just pure talent and she puts all those teeny-boppers to shame! Mariah is #1 ALWAYS & FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This CD is the best! Her number 1's album didn't have many of the songs she has on her Greatest Hits. So this CD totally beats every CD out on the block right now! She is a wonderful singer and I hope she continues to make awesome songs just like her Greatest Hits Album. I LOVE YOU MARIAH!
There is nothing else to say than Mariah! She is the best singer EVER! He voices capture my heart since her very first single Vision of Love and I've been a fan since then. I love all her albums, including the new Glitter, even when people say otherwise. It is just another style, but it is still MARIAH! #1 singer in the whole world! This is a must for all Mariah fans and music lovers! ^__^
Mariah has been doing her thing for a long time and i think she is getting better with every song she makes. She is such a beautiful and talented person, and i believe she set the path for many of the popstars we have today. Coming out with a greatest hits album was a good move for her because it shows people the change of her music over the years, and a chance to listen to her best songs she has recorded. Mariah is one of my favorite artists and i just wanted people to notice her as not only a pretty face but as a wonderful singer/songwriter. We love u Mariah!!!!!
i think that Mariah Carey is the greatest diva of all time. all of her music has been an influence in my life. i think that if it wasn't for her, i wouldn't be who i am today. her music has influenced me in a positive way and i know that each and everyone who has taken the time to listen to her music and what it means has also be influenced in a positive way as well. that's actually what her music does, it influences people in a positive way.
Once again Mariah gives her fans something alittle different. While this is her greatest hits album its different then most other hits album because some of the tracks on the album were never released. I agree with underneath the stars. And it would almost be the best album since Vision of Love except for 1 problem. Where is Vanishing? One of her songs that showcases her voice like no other singer has..is missing from the album. Just sit back and enjoy the ride Mariah. You just scored a million dollar market once again!
This album is the proof of why Mariah is the biggest selling female artist of the all time.She sold more than 150 millions.Maybe you can say that it's similar to #1's but i should remind that the tracklisting is the discography of Mariah's music career and this collection contains non-released tracks like ''All I Want For Christmas Is You'' Jermanie Dupri and Lil Bow Bow Remix.
I love Mariah .I have been listening to all her songs from the very beginning when she sang her first single (vision of love)and feel that noone can ever take her place.Her songs have special meanings that come straight from her heart.
I have all her albums, but I still had to get this one. You can't have enough of her beautiful voice. Mariah is a highly talented artist and is the best in my opinion!!!
