Album Review

This live performance is the perfect peek into the life of rising pop/soul vocal sensation Mariah Carey at a youthful and innocent age in an intimate, acoustic setting. Throughout this performance, recorded live for MTV's Unplugged, Carey is quite electric and charismatic within her vocal presence and succeeds in enlightening the already engaged audience from the get-go. The audience certainly feels the warmth and sincerity of Carey's lyrical messages of longing, loss, friendships, and love. Carey's supporting cast of gifted group musicians back her up with soulful melodiousness, spontaneity, and enriching percussion. Gradually, the power and esteem of these tales lift to new heights and remain at a peak with the breathtaking, moment-making performance of "I'll Be There," a charming song first cut by the Jackson 5. All and all, this is an inspiring event, though still simple enough for the listener to catch those musical places that need to be polished. "Can't Let Go," Carey's radio single for the album, makes it as the seventh and final track, though the cameras are shut off for the Unplugged episode. Certainly, this is a record of hope, virtue, and the possibilities of newfound love. ~ Shawn M. Haney, Rovi

Customer Reviews

Ah, the old Mariah

I really miss her...Not this "Touch my body" crap.

Mariah is Fiyah!

Mariah Carey will always be one of the best singers of all time. And her career has been amazing. I wish she would bring back some old school stuff though, all this hip hop is good and all, but it gets tiring after a while.

SHE IS "THE VOICE"

Anyone who says that Mariah Carey cannot sing needs to seriously reconsider their standards. I am amazed that this is her singing live, so few artists sound that good even after all the "help" (a la Britney Spears). Every song sounds wonderful, and it's no wonder that I'll Be There was a #1 hit.

Biography

Born: March 27, 1970 in Huntington, NY

The best-selling female performer of the 1990s and one of the most popular artists through the 2010s, Mariah Carey rose to superstardom on the strength of her stunning five-octave voice. An elastic talent who moved easily from glossy ballads to hip-hop-inspired dance-pop, she earned frequent comparison to rivals Whitney Houston and Celine Dion, but did them both one better by co-writing almost all her material. Like all artists with lengthy periods in the mainstream...
