I am one of Mariah's biggest fans. I have every album she has ever put out and have always bought them the day of their release. I was counting down the day of the release of this album. I hated the Glitter soundtrack and to be honest, I don't know which I think is worse: Charmbracelet or Glitter. This latest album is difficult to listen to because I'm finding myself constantly straining to hear her. Seems like every song is overshadowed by whispers and NOT an audible, normal octave. Her vocal style has certainly changed over the years. What was once an amazing, inspiring, powerful voice, is now to be compared with Mini-Mouse-like sounds. Where is the voice of Mariah Carey? On this album, every note is a confusion for her because she doesn't know whether to whisper or belt it out. Sometimes she does both in the same sentence. The only song on here that may have had any potential is "Bringing on The Heartbreak", however, I don't think that song will go anywhere because not even radio will play a song in which the listener can't hear the vocals. It's too whispery. Drop the whispers, Mariah and go back to your regular voice.
