Ah, at last, we've reached my own personal favorite era of Mariah's career. This run of albums, although not matching the chart success of what came before them, is what I would consider her strongest run creatively. The last few years have been incredible to experience as a Mariah fan: the release of one of her strongest bodies of work with "Caution", the memoirs and their accompanying audiobook being undeniably fabulous, and her unshakable reign as the queen of Christmas helping her land a recording-breaking 19th #1 single just two years ago... we have been fed, lambs. And, sure, there have been some missteps along the way, too (gross mismanagement, orphaned singles, canceled albums, and an embarrassing reality show), but the quality of Mariah's music has remained steadfast the entire time. And with Mariah's thirtieth anniversary now upon us, what better way to celebrate it than rating some of her best albums? For part three of the rate, we'll be revisiting the run of albums starting with 2008's "E=MC²" all the way through 2020's thirtieth-anniversary album of new and unreleased music, "The Rarities". You'll have six weeks to rate the 92 songs from this era of her discography. — "E=MC²" (2008) 01 Migrate (feat. T-Pain) 02 Touch My Body × music video 03 Cruise Control (feat.

Decimal points are fine and help to break ties, so feel free to use them as needed. 02 Commentary is greatly encouraged - and very much appreciated - but it's not mandatory. 03 Mariah's discography is very ballad- and feature-heavy, so if ballads and/or rap aren't your thing, then this rate might not be for you. 04 For songs with multiple versions and/or remixes, feel free to rate whichever version you prefer. The only exceptions are the remixes in the extras section; you must rate the versions listed - although rating an extended mix, radio edit, etc. instead of the full-length remix is fine. 05 Please use the PM list I've provided below in the post below, and send your ballots in that exact order. It makes things so much easier for me when inputting your scores into the spreadsheet! 06 PM your finished scores, alongside any commentary you've written, to me by end of day in your time zone on Sunday, May 16th. An extension is possible, but not guaranteed, so please be mindful of the due date.
