Imagine it is 1993. You are eagerly awaiting the release of Mariah Carey's new disc, and love 'Dreamlover'. All is nice and sweet, the music and vocal talent apparant and excellent. Fast-forward to 2004, and 'Music Box' is still one of the best albums ever made, having sold over 25 million copies world-wide. 'Dreamlover' is the starter here, a brilliant and catchy pop song. The lyrics and vocals here are impressive. 'Hero' is one of Mariah's trade-mark ballads, along with 'Butterfly', 'Can't Take That Away' and 'Through The Rain'. 'Anytime You Need A Friend' has a gorgeous gospel feel to it, and has a very meaningful message. 'MusicBox' is a beautiful and subtle ballad, a soothing and romantic 4 mins. of pure bliss. 'Now That I Know' returns to party form; Mariah is one of only a few artists who go between ballads and up tempo numbers so effortlessly. 'Without You' is a massive favourite with fans. My favourite track, though, is 'All I've Ever Wanted'. This is an epic ballad, and once again shows us the talent and strength of Mariah's voice, when she chooses to unleash it. The ballads don't over-dominate the album because the up beat numbers are so effective. Although I feel that 'Daydream' and 'Butterfly' were better, this album is still a pure delight. Congratulations Mariah.
