I bought the Emancipation CD on a trip to Canada with my dad in summer 2005. I can only suppose I bought it purely because the HMV in Montreal I spent hours browsing was full of promotional displays, as my awareness of Mariah at the time was foggy at best. I was aware of Heartbreaker, I Know What You Want and Through The Rain (!) which had been very popular on Italian radio/MTV, but everything from the 90s was completely unknown to me, or I knew some songs without consciously knowing it was her. I remember really loving Stay The Night and Mine Again on my first listen. Then the Circles/Your Girl/I Wish You Knew run blew my mind and on that last whistle of Fly Like A Bird I knew I was a Lamb for life.
