Product Description

Mariah Carey's #1's is as much a time capsule of '90s pop and R&B as a record of one woman's chart toppers: the disc chronicles a shift from the sweet, nearly '50s-style "Vision of Love" to more recent hip-hop-lite grooves featuring heavy input from Puffy Combs ("Honey"), Jermaine Dupri ("Sweetheart"), and O.D.B. ("Fantasy"). Some hit, some miss, but all feature the fluttery swoops that Carey substitutes for expression of feeling. Depth is beside the point, but few of these tracks are even fun. Still, after eight years, there seems to be no stopping her, and this album will hardly break her streak of successes. --Rickey Wright

The problem compilations of #1 hits is that songs that go to #1 are not necessarily as memorable and even as big as songs that do not reach the top. It can also show an unbalanced view of an artists run of hits. I think that is the issue with Mariah's #1's CD. Even though thought I do love all of the songs, its' a little uneven since 4 songs from her debut are contained and only one song from her second album is contained, as well as only two cuts from her biggest seller "Music Box", all because of the "#1" rule. While tracks like "Without You" (A #3 hit in the US, albeit #1 in the UK) and "Make It Happen" (#5 US) are missing, which are more memorable than the some of the songs on here that did make the top. The Japan version of this album is a little bit more even because it contains "All I Want For Christmas Is You", and "without You replaces "I Don't Wanna Cry". Her "Greatest Hits" album is also more well-rounded, if you are looking for all of the big hits from her tenure at Columbia.

But overall it is a good album, because what actually did make the cut is 17 fantastic songs. I enjoy all of the bonus cuts which are a nice edition, as well as the Bad boy Remix of "Fantasy", which I actually prefer to the album version.

1. Sweetheart (With JD) 5/5
2. When You Believe (From "The Prince Of Egypt") (With Whitney Houston) 4/5
3. Whenever You Call (With Brian McKnight) 4/5
4. My All 5/5
5. Honey 5/5
6. Always Be My Baby 5/5
7. One Sweet Day (With Boyz II Men) 4/5
8. Fantasy (Featuring O.D.B.) 5/5
9. Hero 4/5
10. Dreamlover 4/5
11. I'll Be There (Featuring Trey Lorenz) 4/5
12. Emotions 5/5
13. I Don't Wanna Cry 5/5
14. Someday 4/5
15. Love Takes Time 5/5
16. Vision Of Love 5/5
17. I Still Believe 5/5

This collection is of Mariah Carey's number 1 hits. Most of the songs can be found on albums (Self-titled, Emotions, MTV Unplugged, Music Box, Daydream and Butterfly) except for the first, second and last track.
Sweetheart featuring JD is an upbeat song, could have been included on the Butterfly album (meaning it sounds more like the material off that album)
When You Believe, the duet with R&B/pop diva Whitney Houston is from the Prince Of Egypt soundtrack, a beautiful song about believing in yourself.
I Still Believe is a beautiful strengthening song, I could see this song being on a single with Hero (and the later track Never Too Far from Glitter).
The other tracks that appear on albums but have been remixed are Fantasy and Whenever You Call.
Fantasy featuring ODB is originally on the Daydream album, this song is very danceable and one of Mariah's best remixes.
Whenever You Call which originally appeared on the Butterfly CD appears here but with guest vocalist Brian McKnight. I prefer this version more compared to the Mariah only version. It's very beautiful done with a male voice.
Overall, it's definitely a must by for any Mariah fan but if you mainly like her singles get this and/or Greatest Hits (which contains songs that didn't make it to number one). A perfect collection.

This compilation demonstrates how Mariah Carey has been one of the most maddeningly uneven pop artists of recent time. When she's good, she's really good, but when she's bad, she's awful. I would rate about half this album 5 stars, the other half just 1. I know this averages out to 3 stars, but I decided to give it a fourth star because I like the good songs so much.
At her core, Mariah is basically a torch singer. She is at her best on smoky ballads like "My All" and "I don't Wanna Cry," on which she uses the lower end of her incredible vocal range. Mariah is also very good in a duet setting, when she gets to play off a contrasting voice. "When you Believe" (with Whitney Houston), "Whenever You Call" (with Brian McKnight), and "One Sweet Day" (with Boyz II Men) are all made interesting by the interplay between singers.
On the down side, Mariah is unconvincing as a soul singer (e.g., "Honey"), and her attempts at hip hop are embarrassingly weak (e.g., "Sweetheart"). Even her good songs teeter on the brink of sugary banality, and some are just too treacly for my taste (e.g., "Hero").
If you like Mariah's hits and want to own just one of her albums, I recommend this one. Just be prepared to skip over some of the tracks when you play it.

"#1's" is a compiliation of Mariah Carey's thirteen singles that peaked at #1 on Billboard Top 100 Singles Chart(she's since had two more #1's). One of those singles rightfully stayed on top for the most weeks in history: "One Sweet Day", with Boyz II Men (16 weeks). She has one of the most amazing voices in mainstream. Her seven-octave range is just one feature that amazes many. Her unforgettable high E flat is still mindblowing. Such musical quality explains why she became the biggest selling artist worldwide in the 1990's and the second biggest selling female artist in music history(140 million), only surpassed by Madonna. She sings every lyric with intense heart and soul. The Grammy-winning "Hero" capitalizes this. Regardless if she's singing pop or R&B/ hip-hop, she shines on every note. This album presents how she's evolved as an artist from 1990-1998. Despite this being a #1's compilation, she includes four new tracks: "Sweetheart", recorded with Jermaine Dupri, has many catchy hip-hop beats. "Whenever You Call" actually is on "Butterfly", but its new version, recorded with Brian McKnight, lives up to the original. The Oscar-winning track "When You Believe", recorded with Whitney Houston for "The Princes of Egypt", was performed wonderfully though peaking at #13 on the singles charts. "I Still Believe" lives up to the original Brenda K. Starr version, whom she sang backup vocals for in the late 1980's, though peaking at #4. This expresses how she got her career started. "#1's" is important material for the essential Mariah Carey fan. These singles will keep many entertained for many more years.
***Note: This is NOT as greatest hits album. This is a thank you album, thanking her fans for helping her songs hit #1.
