iTunes Editors’ Notes

The cliché “meteoric rise” could have been invented for Mariah Carey. This self-titled debut sold over eight million copies, produced four number one singles, and earned her a Grammy Award for Best New Artist. Not bad for an unknown 19-year-old. It also set her on her way to becoming the best-selling female artist of the 1990s — a particularly impressive feat considering the caliber of the competition during that decade — largely on the strength of her truly remarkable voice. She swoops across an unbelievable five octaves on these smooth ballads and bouncy R&B tunes, and her vocal control is simply stunning — witness her spine-tingling upper register notes on “Someday” and “Prisoner” to choose just two of many examples. But she’s more than a pretty voice; Carey also co-wrote each of the 11 songs on this album, and though her songwriting chops would improve over the years, the sheer excitement of hearing this talent for the first time makes this a memorable debut.

Customer Reviews

I never get sick of this album!

For the past 9 years (starting at 11) I have always loved this cd. I don't think I'll ever get sick of this album. "Vision of love" and "There's Got to be a way" have always been my favorites on here. I recommend this for anyone who has a thing for great music. Great Job, iTunes

Mariah Carey

This cd is one of my favorites. I was not alive yet when this album was released, but I wish I was! All the mainstream music now is nasaly, the singers have no talent whatsoever! Whatever happened to the Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, and Anita Baker days?! All in all this cd shows Mariah's incredible 4 octave range. My personal favorite is "Vanishing". 4 stars!!

One of the Best Debuts..

Ever. :D

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...
