First off, I've been a huge Mariah Carey fan, but only recently did I actually dish out the dollars and purchase most of her albums for my collection and this was exactly what I was looking for. This is a collection of Mariah's Island Records: "Charmbracelet", "The Emancipation of Mimi" (Platinum, not regular edition), and E=MC², all for just $20! It also comes with a double sided poster and the box is designed to hold 4 CDs if you want to add another later.
Here's an overview of each album:
1. Charmbracelet: This album grows on you and is much more subdued and personal than the other two. Most of the songs are in the R&B genre with hints of pop. Also, this is mostly Mariah with guest performers in only 4 of the 15 songs.
-15 songs on the album, Favorites:
1. Through the Rain
2. The One
4. Subtle Invitation
5. Bring On the Heartbreak
2. The Emancipation of Mimi: This is a mostly R&B album with more hip hop and club songs than any of her prior works. Vocally, Mariah really shows off here with only occasional subtlety. At first I didn't appreciate this album as much because it does feature lots of guest rappers.
-18 songs on the album, Favorites:
1. We Belong Together
2. Get Your Number
4. Joy Ride
5. Don't Forget About Us
3. E=MC²: This album is much more pop flavored than the previous ones, but still with plenty of R&B to offer. The album also has less guest rappers/singers and has a noticeably more commercial feel. I like this album very much and really don't get any of the negativity.
-14 songs on the album, Favorites:
2. Last Kiss
3. For the Record
4. Bye Bye
5. I Wish You Well
this is a great combination of Music an awesome 3CD set
