    I'm not getting "Giving Me Life" and trying so hard :(

    Decent album but it's lacking that MOMENT for me. "Stay Long Love" and "A No No" are a lot of fun though, and "Portrait" is a good closer.

    08 - GTFO
    05 - With You
    07 - Caution
    08 - A No No
    08 - The Distance
    06 - Giving Me Life
    06 - One More
    08 - 8th Grade
    08 - Stay Long Love
    08 - Portrait

    There’s so much focus on Mariah the songwriter this season, and I’m totally here for it :disco:

    All these low scores for With You hurt me.

    It's such a lovely song. Those lower vocals in the chorus and the rich melodies are everything. Probably my favourite on the album teebs, even if it's the most typically 00s Mariah.

    Because no iconic Mariah album comes without a Cameo #justiceforGlitter

    09 GTFO - The perfect aural accompaniment to dosing your trifling ex-boyfriend’s protein shake with one too many splashes of GBL

    13 With You - Cut to me being desperately in love rn and just living for every moment of it :disco: The “he said “yo-o-ooo” - I been lovin’ you so long / Ever since that Bone Thugs song” and “Damn, I fucks wit’ you” bits literally slay my emotionally-ravaged pussy

    10 Caution - Oh to have had this “just the tip” anthem back when I was a shy twink bottom! Things would be so different now.

    10 A No No - Let me give it to you in Tagalog :disco: NO! Come through multi-lingual queen! Now hit us with that Cardi B/Lil’ Kim-feature/Nicki diss track and give us that 19th streaming-based #1 we have been waiting for since 2000 and late. I mean if Gags can make it back to the top, my original Aries queen can too :disco:

    11 The Distance - S! P! I! R! I! T! It's great to see / we got it! The spirit! Hey! Hey! Let's hear it! :disco:

    12 Giving Me Life - Queens are saying this is the new The Roof. It’s not. Nothing can scale those 18/10 Brooklyn Heights. Let’s get that straight. But if this is not quite the sonic equivalent of taking it raw for the first time, it is at least somewhat reminiscent of passing out on a chaise longue at 3am in a luxurious hotel after a twisted threesome and one too many Diazepam

    08 One Mo’ Gen - In theory, this should be where we hit the bad fillers, but one look at Mariah’s stunning face tells you that we only use good fillers in the Caution era. Your fave could never @Suedey #WHAT!

    08 8th Grade - A cute bop to play during your hook-up because the ASIB soundtrack is such a mood-killer, right?

    08 Stay Long Love You - Ditto

    11 Portrait - The sad piano ballad to desperately cry to as you struggle to find the right filter to accentuate your tits on Grindr in this Insta-thot era. #Relevant #emotional legend.

    08 Runway - Sampling Butterfly should be a no-no, if only because it will, inevitably, lead to unflattering comparisons - being the greatest album of all-time and what-not. But somehow Caution pulled the padj.


    This is how you serve post-Imperial decline, United Kingdom.

    Thank god SOMEONE gets it!

    Takeaways from this review: Louf has been missed. Mariah finally knows what TRUE critical acclaim is. And Louf is getting a lot of seriously good sex right now. :disco: we love a queen who comes out for her faves.

    IKR Jark - I think it my favourite Mariah song since Triumphant (Get 'Em) (original mix) and let's recall that that was the 16/10 defiant moment I needed back in 2012!

    nevermind Giving Me Life being the new The Roof.

    A No No is "the" sequel to Boy (I Need You) we all (didn't know) we needed :disco:

    I thought that Stay Long Love You is much more Boy. Not that it NEEDS a sequel!

    Has a queen ever been more relevant while all the metrics insist they're irrelevant? :disco:

    Some albums are too credible for the chart.

    We should be thankful that it blessed us with even a one week appearance. It certainly doesn’t deserve to have to spend more than that amongst some of the DROSS in there.

    That's being kind.

    I'm really glad I read back a few pages because I thought I was going mad. I know making a tuna pasta bake is probably not the ideal listening task this album intends but still, colour me bored to tears.

    I'll give it another go but I can't be bothered with her anymore because it sounds like she can't either. Again.

    Portrait is a little bit lovely mind.

    I thought I was listening to something different from most of the people in this thread.

    Not to one’s personal taste is all well and fair, but to intimate a lack of effort or bother on Caution is way off the mark. It’s full of it.

    Darling the lambs just hear what they want to hear. It could be a 192 kbps mp3 of calves being slaughtered in the abattoir or a farting donkey and still they’d claim to have pussies a-poppin’

    If it is, it doesn't feel like hers. Most of her songs lately sound like they've been recorded 2 minutes after waking from an operation from the vocals down to the production

    I'm not even surprised but obviously it's pointless saying anything in here.

    On a positive I LOVE Mariah as a person and always feel like she'd be the most fun person to do mundane tasks with like trot around Tesco.

    I see that Xmas monstrosity is making its usual trudge up the charts...she should do a "sexy" RnB take with those post-asthma-attack vox with which she likes to pepper her more sultry tunes and chuck in onto the Spotify edition STAT.

    Now I can’t get on board with the new album YET, but All I want For Christmas Is You is a STONEWALL CLASSIC which can’t be denied.
