Lambs, assemble!

By request/demand/etc, Moopy will sit with Mariah Carey's "Butterfly" this evening.

The album needs little introduction to most of Moopy: released in 1997, it saw her step further away from her earlier pop/AOR sound and further intop hip-hop/R&B. It is widely regarded as one of her best and it shipped over 10 million worldwide.

This will be a new one to me but hey, isn't that part of the point?

I'm not sure I can. Although 'My All' and 'The Roof' are both low key treats.

The album is stunning and has some of her best work. You’re in for a treat.

I have never heard this due to Honey. So we'll see. I had the previous two albums.

I think I will because I haven't for years and can't remember much. I seem to recall I never quite "got" it like some people, but then I'm no Mariah loon, so..

If it's that bad I'm happy to give up after Breakdown which I'm aware of.

Anyway I love "Honey". I remember being stunned at the sheer change in her and extravagance of it all at 14 years. Plus it was just ALL TITS

I can't face one of these tonight (I have a regular phone call that's about to happen as well), but I've always quite liked Honey.

Butterfly (song) I know is a bit schmaltzy for some but I heart it so much

When this came on at the end of her last fun for Europe concert I nearly died

Though this marked the end of her imperial phase for sure. Whipping out the norks must have pissed off a sizeable chunk and somehow she's not QUITE sexy with it, more comical

Well at least there's My All. A treat in ballad form, a banger in remix form.

The morales mix to My All is where it’s at.

Everyone raves about Butterfly (song) but it's never felt like Mariah's best, just a weaker version.

My All on the other hand...not that it's especially original but you hardly go to Mariah for that.

I think at this point in time we had the All Saints and Toni Braxton and Mariah was very much down the list for me by now.
