Mariah Carey - The Discography Rate: Part. 1 'The 90's' (RESULTS - *WINNER!* and round-up)

mariah-careyHeader_zps18690f28.png





Mariah Carey. A legend, icon, idol, diva, vocal-acrobat, Chanteuse... Often imitated never duplicated.



An artist that has 18 US no.1 singles, has won five Grammy Awards, 19 World Music Awards, 11 American Music Awards, and 31 Billboard
Music Awards and she is the third-best-selling female artist in the United States, with 63.5 million certified albums (but who is counting?!). Referred to as the "songbird supreme" by the Guinness World Records, she is famed for her five-octave vocal range, power and signature use of the whistle register.

Idolized by many a lower tier performer...

Those who have cited Carey as an influence are... Ariana Grande (duh), Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Jessica Simpson (?), Rihanna, Grimes, Kelly Clarkson, Nelly Furtado, Leona Lewis, Brandy Norwood, Pink, Mary J. Blige and also Missy Elliott. Another female up-comer, Beyoncé, credits Carey's singing and her song "Vision of Love" as influencing her to begin practicing vocal "runs" as a child, as well as helping her pursue a career as a musician.

I suppose Stevie Wonder said it best...
"When people talk about the great influential singers, they talk about Aretha, Whitney and Mariah. That's a testament to her talent. Her range is that amazing."

Fly Away (Butterfly Reprise) better be the stealth top 10 of this.

Wow can't wait to get on with rating these..! Some of my favourite albums ever.

Breakdown for top 10.
 
Re: Mariah Carey - The Discography Rate: Part. 1 'The 90's' (Voting closes October 1st 2014)

I have a feeling people are going to fuck over Butterfly and I'm going to get extremely pissed.

I hope Fourth of July makes Top 20 and Babydoll goes for Top 10.
 
Re: Mariah Carey - The Discography Rate: Part. 1 'The 90's' (Voting closes October 1st 2014)

I hope When You Believe does better than I expect it to.
 
Re: Mariah Carey - The Discography Rate: Part. 1 'The 90's' (Voting closes October 1st 2014)

Oh and y'all better give Prisoner the 10 it deserves.

Dang I forgot you lot all love Butterfly here. It's the second worst album in this rate!!

Daydream
Rainbow
Music Box
Mariah Carey
Butterfly
Emotions
 
Re: Mariah Carey - The Discography Rate: Part. 1 'The 90's' (Voting closes October 1st 2014)

I expect probably a lot of Emotions album tracks will be first out.
 
Re: Mariah Carey - The Discography Rate: Part. 1 'The 90's' (Voting closes October 1st 2014)

For clarification, why are we only ranking her original Christmas songs? There are plenty of covers on her other albums...
 
Re: Mariah Carey - The Discography Rate: Part. 1 'The 90's' (Voting closes October 1st 2014)

The link to Emotions has no sound.
 
Re: Mariah Carey - The Discography Rate: Part. 1 'The 90's' (Voting closes October 1st 2014)

There is an intimidating amount to rate here, but I have to do it. She was the reason I discovered music as a kid.
 
Re: Mariah Carey - The Discography Rate: Part. 1 'The 90's' (Voting closes October 1st 2014)

You're So Cold
Now That I Know
Prisoner

Oh em gee, the CLASSIQUES.

Realistically, I'm rooting for Always Be My Baby or Honey to snatch this. The Roof is the most overrated song of all time.
 
Re: Mariah Carey - The Discography Rate: Part. 1 'The 90's' (Voting closes October 1st 2014)

I agree that The Roof is completely overrated. It is not even one of the best tracks on Butterfly. It is just mediocre.
 
Re: Mariah Carey - The Discography Rate: Part. 1 'The 90's' (Voting closes October 1st 2014)

It's so monotone and it goes nowhere. I always forget where I am about halfway through it.

I AM FREE. Another 10/10. I loved when early Mariah could take us to church.

Very excited for this. I largely prefer her early material though the later years are nice too. One of the most talented all-round singers ever.

Jesus Born on This Day is a 10.
