HASH(0xa925078c) out of 5 stars Don't be put off by first listen - this is a slow-burning masterpiece! Oct. 10 2009
By Mathew A. Crane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
OK - so let's clear things up. Is this the best Mariah album of all-time?...probably not, but don't be confused by some negative press, slack first week sales or even first impressions. This is a slow-burning hit! After a few listens you stop obsessing about how this isn't a typical Mariah album and begin to appreciate this as possibly her most cohesive body of work since her debut. This is a superby crafted album, with each story interwoven via interludes and repeated phrases to create a consistent piece of artistic expression. What initially comes across as everything sounding the same - after a couple of listens reveals each song as one chapter (or memoir) in Mariah's love/life story and is exceptional. So it's not the same as everything else she's done - true - and if it had of been would she have been criticized for trying to recreate Mimi?
While some tracks feel more album filler than floor filler - there are some perfectly crafted songs which resonate with warmth, cutting homour, sarcasm and heartbreak - indeed it seems ironic that Mariah would write the best break-up album of her career (with the arguable exception of Butterfly) when she is happily married! Stand-out tracks are "Betcha Gon Know" (possibly the classiest slice of R & B Carey has ever produced), "Obsessed" and it's slightly darker sister track "Standing O", "H.A.T.E.U", "Inseperable", the superb "Up Out My Face" (which is a sure-fire number 1 if marketed correctly) and "Angels Cry" - in my opinion the best Mariah ballad we've heard in years. With every song concentrating on love and heartbreak - the only thing the album lacks is an anthem. Carey's ability to write universal songs of inspiration and reflection such as Make it Happen, Hero, Can't take that away (Mariah's theme), Close My Eyes and so on have often been the tracks that have been most requested and most treasured by her adoring fan base, and the lack of one on "Memoirs" is noticeably absent.
Ultimately - this album may not sell what it deserves to as people may surf the samples once and not re-listen, which would be a great shame. For my money, Mariah has written, sung and co-produced a bravely different album which deserves high-ranking status in her back-catalogue, and once again proves that Carey's platinum voice and under-rated song-writing deserves it's already cemented place in music history.

HASH(0xa9258120) out of 5 stars MARIAH didn't do too bad.....she actually did great! Oct. 6 2009
By Grace - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
MY REVIEW ---> 4/5

I will say the album is a grower, the more you listen to it the better it gets. The only song that still hasn't caught on right away is Standing 0, but the rest is flawless.

Mariah spills out her personal perception of the beauty and ugliness of love & relationships. Her lyrics depict relatable stories and captures her frolic personality.

Songs like Ribbon, Impossible, Inseparable, and More Than Just Friends paint a romantic, mushy picture of falling in love.

However the following moody songs lie in complete contrast: Betcha U Gonna Know and H.A.T.E U delineates the tough process of heartbreak, betrayal, and bitterness when love goes wrong.

Fun, sassy songs like It's A Wrap, Obsessed, Up Out My Face, and Standing 0 take sardonic shots at the person on the other end of the relationship.

Candy Bling, Angels Cry and Languishing are played as beautiful melodies, yet tainted with lingering sadness as each song exposes fear, emotional memories, and reminscent love stories.

Lastly the main theme of the album ends off with Mariah's own soft-powerful interpetation of the song I Want To Know What Love Is Throughout the album love came and left soon after. Her desperate plea to understand what love is, it rather appropriate for this album (despite the criticism)

HASH(0xa9250c90) out of 5 stars Great Album!! Oct. 4 2009
By Lauren Glenn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I love Memoirs of An Imperfect Angel. I feel that many songs have grown on me as with any new album. I also feel that she could have done without The Dream & Tricky Stewart on a few songs but they are what's hot now. I know people who initially hated the album but after a few more listens they are loving the songs. The "90s" Mariah is gone so get over it and stop making that a reason to HATE the album. People grow and CHANGE with the times. Current favorite songs:
1. Betcha Gon Know
2. Candy Bling
3. Ribbon
4. Standing O
5. It's A Wrap
6. Inseparable
7. Up Out My Face
8. The Impossible
9. Languishing (This grows on me more and more.)

I just can't believe true Mariah fans can't find at least one song they love on this album.

HASH(0xa9250c78) out of 5 stars Read my initial thoughts please. Sept. 29 2009
By Adrian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
September 29th, 2009

Mariah's 10th studio album Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel is a slight grower. You might not love it initially but at the very least some tracks will grow on you if you have liked any of the recent work she's done with Island Def Jam.

Is this her best release? Not by a mile. That title belongs to Daydream (1995). But every track has something to add to the collection and flows very easily into the next. The lyrics on the album are OK to occasionally great (see "H.A.T.E.U." and "Angels Cry"). For modern Mariah nothing is bad, nor should you be surprised by any of the content.

My favorite track here by far is "Angels Cry" which is towards the end of the disc. The song is a piano-woven ballad with a backbeat and vulnerable lyrics like we're used to from Mariah. I could see this being on a future greatest hits collection for sure. The surprising "Betcha Gon Know (The Prologue)" shows the darkest side I've probably seen in Mariah. It provides an excellent, descriptive opener but isn't completely what this mainly love-themed album is about. Other standouts include the highly anticipated "H.A.T.E.U." which is one of the few ballads on the album (and is one of the best), the stomping "Standing O", the lush "Languishing (Interlude)" and the bouncy single "Up Out My Face".

The only problem I have with this disc is that it is almost pure mid-tempos. Mariah goes fast on a few tracks and there are like 4 or 5 ballads. The rest of the tracks are neither slow or fast really, they are at a medium tempo and start to blend after a while. Not that they sound exactly the same but I think that's an issue.

I'm a huge fan of Mariah and expected a lot of this album. I anticipated it for months and months and months after the slight disappointment of E=MC2. The vocals here aren't bad at all and to be fair they are less whispery than they were on Charmbracelet. To all of the ones worried that her voice isn't gonna be the same as it was in the early-mid 90s - it's true, it won't be that good again. And I'm fine with that. Her voice doesn't deter me much at all on this effort (so try not to listen to the haters). There are also a lot of her prized whistle register notes.

4.4 stars.

Angels Cry
Betcha Gon Know (The Prologue)
Languishing (Interlude)

update: I expected "Angels Cry" to be epic and I'm barely disappointed. I've owned this album since its release date (went to Wal-Mart early in the morning) and have listened to it over 50x through. I've edited this review so many times over that it's getting ridiculous! ;^) If I was to rate it these days I'd give it a solid 4.4 out of 5 so rest assured who haven't bought it yet. GET IT.

HASH(0xa9258828) out of 5 stars Amazing! Thinking of buying it? Hands down recommended Oct. 1 2009
By ASparkles - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is why I buy everyone of Mariah's CDs without hesitation: Because they are amazing. This CD is so inspirational and has such a positive message inside the lyrics. I have listened to it over and over and everytime I get something new to think about and be encouraged about. That is ART!

She is such a talented writer. She writes her lyrics to encourage women world wide. Some of the stand out tracks are "Out my Face" which is a break up song. It's upbeat and perky and very catchy. It makes you want to yell out, "OUT MY FACE."

"Standing O" is another song that has completely turned around my perspective about relationships. The message of this song, suggests that if someone is going to cut off their nose to spite their face, they are such a fool that they deserve a standing ovation just to reiterate how dumb they are. This is a great break up song if you have ever been hurt in a relationship, you will love this song if you listen to the lyrics. And everyone has! That is why Mariah is one of the most sucessful artists in the industry. Because her songs everyone can relate to, everyone can get something positive from the lyrics.

Her voice is impeccable. Through all her struggles, Mariah has come out on top because her her beautiful and postive attitude and it's embedded into her music. If you are debating whether or not to buy "Memoirs of an imperfect Angel" I would highly recommend it. It has a great amount of tracks, heart and soul poured into it, and is inspirational. Her cover of "What Love Is" alone is outstanding. Other tracks that could be fillers on an album, are not only fillers. All her songs could stand on their own consistently. A++ Mariah for another album that is personal, reflective, and a hit.
