    In fairness, the bottom 5 could change quite easily as I don't know them very well.

    I'm such a REAL Mariah fan...

    Anyone ranking Me. I Am Mariah below fucking Rainbow needs to get their ears checked. Rainbow is such a steaming pile of turd.

    But the highs are so good: Heartbreaker, Can’t Take That Away, Bliss, Crybaby, Petals, even Against All Odds and Thank God I Found You still have their charms.

    Me. I Am Mariah... on the other hand. Most of it is unlistenable.

    I properly love “Against All Odds”. Well, until she wheeled Westlife in for that cheap number one...

    How? how so? it has so many great songs - Faded, Dedicated, Cry, You Don't Know, Make It Look Good, Thirsty... it's the album she really SHOULD have followed Emancipation up with instead of arsing around doing whispery featherweight pop on E=MC2.

    No E=MC2 has career highlights like Migrate, ’ll be loving you long time and SIDE EFFECTS :disco:

    Infact I think it might rank number 2/3 for me

    I played E+ MC2 yesterday and declared it DULL. "Migrate" is ok, "Touch My Body" is AMUSINGLY shit, but the rest is just drivel. "We Belong Together" ruined her in a way...she tried to replicate it with "Don't Forget About Us" and the inexplicable way that BORING OLD PIECE OF MISERY did well led her to believe she could then carbon copy that as well...

    I like E=MC2. But I agree it wasn't a very original record in hindsight and it killed her momentum.

    she never did produce the perfect album, all of them having at least one sappy ballad/overearnest moment to keep them from being a 10/10 affair.

    love:
    01 Music Box - my first mariah album and also my favourite, probably for sentimental reasons. with everything fades away obviously.
    02 Butterfly - the title song is probably the only semi-dud for me (though the morales mix of that is every. thing.)
    03 Mariah Carey - sounds almost 80s, love it, there's got to be a way drags it down.
    04 Daydream - melt away and forever
    05 Emancipation of Mimi - strong though the beginning of meme-iah, i don't think it's aged very well and a few of the songs cheapen it. not to mention she jumped the shark with the deluxe edition.

    somewhat flawed:
    Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel - three tracks less and a different cover and it would've been one of my favourites if not her best.
    Emotions - the singles are brilliant but there's some middling stuff on there.

    meh:
    Glitter - fun but far from classic
    Rainbow - patchy as fuck
    E=MC2 - half of it is utter shit

    have not listened enough to rate:
    Charmbracelet
    Me. I Am Mariah.
