The Mariah Carey Discography Rate Pt.1 • FINISHED

if you'd like to get an early start, please feel free to do so! also, if there are any songs/remixes you think I've missed that deserve to be rated, please let me know asap! I'd like to get any additions to the song list fully sorted before the pt.2 thread actually opens~

I know there are two bonus/b-sides tracks from the Glitter and Charmbracelet eras, "There Goes My Heart" and "There For Me."

Edit: There's also "When I Feel It", but it's an unreleased track from the Emancipation era.

Loverboy (club of love remix)
The one (so so def remix)
Dont forget about us (desert storm remix)
say something (so so def remix)

All of these have new vocals and sound (kinda) different from the original (and veRY GOOD).

thanks! I'll give them all a listen and then see about adding them to the song list.

thanks for the suggestions! "There Goes My Heart" and "There For Me" are both already included in the song list, but I don't think I'll include "When I Feel It" since it wasn't officially released. I know someone (was it @The Hot Rock?) mentioned an interest in doing a pt.4 of the rate with leaks/unreleased stuff last year. we can discuss its inclusion if there's enough interest in doing that once the main rates have finished. I'm honestly not even sure how many leaks/unreleased songs she's actually got.

she really hasn't got a lot leaked honestly...only like six actual solo leaked tracks and we're not making love and then we have shit like friends and the damizza collabs which i dont know if they were actually released back then or not.
 
While people are complaining about rate fatigue, I decided to do this rate so I can have a rating of all the Mariah albums by the part 3 of this rate. And that was a great decision as you can see below that I found some incredible albums that have been on repeat in the last few weeks.


Album Averages


Daydream : 9.1 (10 x 4)
Mariah Carey : 8.8 (10 x 3)
Butterfly : 8.7 (10 x 5) (This would be 9.1 if it wasn't for the Prince cover)
Music Box : 8.2 (10 x 2)
Emotions : 5.9 (10 x 1) (Ddd)



Some thoughts about the results:


- Y'all did the ballads so so wrong. I understand the hatred for ballads in other artists' rates but in the Mariah rate when she has some of the best ballads ever?

- That top 10 is so iconic though. I think I gave almost everything on there a 10.

- The only difference that I think I would make if I had participated is that Music Box probably wouldn't be her lowest rated album anymore nn.
