Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ashley S. Battel
This extremely impressive debut is replete with smooth-sounding ballads and uplifting dance/R&B cuts. Carey convincingly seizes many opportunities to display her incredible vocal range on such memorable tracks as the popular "Vision of Love" featured during her television debut on The Arsenio Hall Show, an appearance noted by many as her formal introduction to stardom, the energetic "Someday," and the moody sounds of the hidden treasure "Vanishing."
