Greatest Hitsby Mariah Carey
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.

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I LOVE MARIAH! She is an exceptional artist, producer, writer and actress. This album is a must have for all Mariah's fans.
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!!!!!!!!!
the greatest hits album is really, really great although i think that breakdown, loverboy and never too far should be included in this album. i really love all mariah albums including glitter. i think the glitter soundtrack could have done better if there wasn't a glitter movie. although i won't consider the glitter soundtrack a flop since it reaches platinum certification by the RIAA.
MABUHAY! I really love Mariah. There is no other singer the way she does.There is only one Mariah Carey.She is a good model in the music industries.i love listening to mariah coz it touches the heart of an individual it inspires everyone. Mariah will always be a part of my life! in the present and in the future.
Mariah Carey made a big album of her greatest hits!! It's just the best.
I love Mariah! I've been a fan of hers for a long time.She's one of the great singers of today and she is a great actress. She is one of my favorite singers and i'm only 18! I love all her songs on her album. I recommed this album to any one who is a fan of Mariah's. keep up the great work Mariah!
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!!!
Mariah is one of the best singers of today! What more can I say?
This album showcases Mariah's work from when she started, to present day. It chronicles her career with her biggest hits and few that our close to her heart. This is a great album for a new fan or a person who might not have all her CDs. It's great for those who don't have all her albums because in just one album you can get all the hits that you love without buying all the other CDs! It is also great for the collectors because any new Mariah CD is a great asset to any collection. Go buy this album, it makes an especially good gift!
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!
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!
This album is great better than Mariah´s 1# on this album she picks some songs that didn´t reach the top but still Mariah´s best songs as Can´t Let Go ,Make It Happen,Forever,Endless Love with Luther Vandross.I Love this album it is the best Greatest Hits album ever and i think it is better than Whitney Houstons Greatest Hits album that was realized in 2000 and Mariah´s in november 2001.Mariah is my all time favorit Diva with Celine Dion they both have amazing voices and i love them both as much. The only wrong thing with this album is that she uses the same songs on this album as on the no 1# album all the 16 number 1#singles are on The Greatest Hits album from 1990-2000 2 more no 1# on this album because the no 1#album was realized in 1998 and Mariah got 2 more after that Heartbreaker feat Jay-Z and in 2000 Thank god I found you with Joe and the 98 degrees. The 12 other songs are Mariah´s greatest singles that didn´t get the 1# as Can´t Let Go no 4#,Make It Happen no 3#,I Still Believe no 2# in 1999 and the duet with Whitney Houston When You Believe from the Prince of Egypt and many more. This album is great and Mariah should have left to make the no1# album in 1998 and realized it in 2001 in stead because this album is so much better with stunning 16 number 1#singles and 12 others. I Recommend this album to all Mariah fans and nonfans.
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!!!
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
Mariah Carey is the comparison to all things that can write and sing with passion and feeling. No other artist can compare to Mariah's immortal voice, rapture, and power that's combined with the force of nature and the power of the universe. Unlike many artists these days that always sing to get attention with their body image (instead of showcasing some pure, raw talent beside it), and the sometimes incoherent, provacative lyrics (which portray no depth or feeling), Mariah Carey is the one that breaks the shield of "pop princess" on today's very "unfair" business of pop and R&B music. She's not trying to be a "pop princess" or "pop diva" like many pop artists that seem to be desperately trying. She's just being Mariah. Every song she frees into this world is a symbol to not just herself, but to many people all over the world. Her music is passion, an imitation of the sun, the beauty of all light, and the memories of all life which truly makes her, and her music, truly unforgettable.
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!
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! ^__^
this is truly the best CD out their and mariah carey is a fabulous singer and i love all of her songs . and i definitely recommend this CD.
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!
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.
oh my god, what can i say? Mariah is totally awesome! she's the greatest!!! i love her!! she's the best!!!
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.
