Product Description

Amazon.ca

Early buzz on The Emancipation of Mimi predicted that this would be the disc to mark "the return of the voice"--the voice being that glass-shattering instrument that propelled Carey to bestselling female artist of all time status--and mostly it is. But because of the small army of talent involved in its assembly, the album is way more than just a comeback vehicle. For proof, try straight-ahead, look-out-Beyonce-Mimi's-still-got-it "Mine Again," or '70s-soul cuddle-up, "Circles:" a don't-attempt-on-American-Idol love song, or the gospel dazzlers "Fly Like a Bird," and "Stay the Night." But for songs that steer this disc directly into 2005, no looking back, scan the jewel case for the tracks followed by the word "featuring": "To the Floor," with Nelly, bumps along to maximum booty-shaking effect, while Twista spins his natural-disaster-force vocals into "One and Only." Snoop Dogg, Pharrell Williams, and Jermaine Dupri also pitch in; between them and the highwire vocals, Emancipation works the kind of pure-pop magic that sets us all free. --Tammy La Gorce

5.0 out of 5 stars biggest comeback of the year June 20 2005
By shelley
Format:Audio CD
mariah's back with this awesome album!! some of my favourites are we belong together (already at #1), get your number and joy ride. all the songs are really great--
Track Listing: (not in order)
your girl: this is a mix between rnb and mariahs trademark ballads, showcases her high vocal range
we belong together: i love this song, rly good lyrics and heartfelt (watch the music video, you'll see what im talking about)
to the floor: really upbeat, dance track
stay the night: this is another mix between rnb and ballady type song
shake it off: another good party mix, not as upbeat as others
say something: showcases mariahs feathery voice i rly love this song
one and only: showcases her high vocal range, she sings rly fast in this song, this is half slowdance half upbeat dance track (with busta rhymes)
mine again: this is a real ballad, reminds me of never too far from the glitter album
joy ride: this an inspirational song, sort of a ballad
it's like that: a real dance track
i wish you knew: another ballad, i love her voice in this one
get ur number: i love this one!! its rly upbeat.. with JD i love it
fly like a bird: another inspirational song, like joy ride
circles: more ballad than rnb, this ones kind of repetitive but i like it
secret love: this is a bonus track which u might not get on ur cd, upbeat dance, i dont rly think theres a melody to it but it would be good in a club
sprung: this is another bonus track, another good track for a club, features her high vocal range at the beginning
all in all this is an AWESOME album that all mariah fans should have!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars It IS the old Mariah May 5 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I strongly disagree with the "official" Amazon review for The Emancipation of Mimi. Mariah was the first artist that I could ever say I was a fan of. In fact, the first album I ever bought was Mariah's MTV Unplugged. She was one of my favourites all the way through Daydream, and then fell off my radar. Although, even though she hasn't been popular for a long time, no one can say that she hasn't had any hits. All of her albums except the last two, Glitter and Charmbracelet, have spawned big hits. Anyway, with Mimi, Mariah has returned to her R&B roots. This album is soulful. It is without huge hype. With this album, unlike recent ones, I do not feel that Mariah is trying to establish herself as a hip hop ghetto girl. Where the Beyonce references come from, I have no idea. Beyonce's album was heavily-influenced by old school, but her image is becoming excessively ghetto-gangsta. Mimi has some hip hop and old school influences, but the styling of the album is much more sophisticated. As for their voices, there is no mistaking Mariah. She's doing what she does best. As the "official" review states, Mimi is heavy on the ballads and mid-tempos, but they are wonderful. The "real" feel of this album intentionally allows us to hear subtle flaws in Carey's delivery, which only adds to the soulful styling and intimacy of the album, but Mariah's voice is not lacking. Her range and control are once again showcased on this album, and one will recognize again how hugely talented Mariah Carey is, and how the music industry is void of voices of this calibre.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good work ,Mariah April 20 2005
By Critic
Format:Audio CD
"The Emancipation of Mimi" is one of Mariah's finest album since 'Daydream' and "Butterfly". The greatest pop vocalist in history has returned to reclaim her title. She is to be credited for this album; it is a great effort that contains groovy hip-hop tunes and soulful R&B ballads that leaves you virtually satisfied. Standout tracks include "Its like that" "We belong together", "Circles" and "Wish you knew". The best song on the album however is "Fly like a bird" which is highly reminiscent of 'Music Box's' "Anytime you need a friend". Here, you hear the five octaved diva giving her all. She shows that she can still hit notes secluded in the 6th and 7th octave. This leaves you either amused or annoyed that she resorts to her (in)famous dog whistle.
However, there are certain instances where you hear that Mariah's voice is not the same. On certain tracks she over-employs the cloudy,breathy falsetto that distorts her diction. Also, at times her voice sounds forced as if she cannot comfortably hit the 'Patti' notes (in full voice) as she used to. Maybe she is trying too hard to show that she still has it; the result leaves you wondering how her voice got so rough.
A good effort none the less. Kudos to Mariah.

I was a bit skeptical about this re-release because I usually don't like re-releases. That's why I took off one star. The bonus tracks and the DVD are good nonetheless. Read more
