I Am Mariah...


MariahCare­y Maria might have appeared as bat-crazy as any diva at times, but she never lost possession of that almost unique vocal instrument that justifies her success. The melismatic style is dialled down a little but on tracks such as Make It Look

and she sounds like she is having fun. Nas, Explicit and Miguel sound like they have taken time on their contributi­ons rather than the ‘phoned-in’ contributi­ons of too many hip hop artists guesting on other albums. Even for non-fans (like me) this is very agreeable.
