Our Review

With more than 200 million albums sold worldwide, Mariah Carey is one of the most popular performers of all time. She’s had an amazing 18 #1 hits in her career to date, a Billboard charts record for a solo artist as of early 2009, and this collection contains nine of those, including a few of her better duets. Carey has released other best-of collections before, but this one is unique in that it focuses on one specific aspect of her long career, which may be exactly what some fans are looking for. Separating out the ballads like this highlights Carey’s considerable range — and that’s not a reference to her legendary ability to cleanly reach five octaves. By not including any of her bouncy R&B hits, up-tempo dance floor grooves, or hip hop-inflected numbers, her ability to deliver a chills-inducing ballad really comes across, and these songs are an ideal showcase for her stunning vocal control. All of these songs have been released before, with the exception of “Hero,” which was re-recorded especially for this collection.

The Ballads (1 star)
Don't get me wrong, I am a huge MC fan; But this record is's the same songs that are on her Greatest Hits her Number 1's...I mean she is just releasing things just to be releasing them! A true fan will already have these songs....what she should have done was put some new ballads with these then maybe I would have bought it. But it's a waste of time!

What a great collection and released on historic day!!! (5 stars)
This album contains some of Mariah's best ballads by the greatest, most successful female artist of all time!!!! This includes 9 #1 hits, and is well rounded with important songs in her career. Every album other than her IDJ albums are represented effectivly and is a solid collection. No one can resist Mariah's voice, and her ballads are something she is known for, especially the first track, Hero. Any Mariah fan will be very pleased with it

The Ballads (4 stars)
This is a great collection of SOME of Mariah's best ballads. This certainly has the classics (ie, "Hero," "Vision of Love," and "My All") The problem is that this is a Columbia-released album, which means none of the ballads from her new record label ("Charmbracelet", "The Emancipation of Mimi" or "E=MC2") are here. This leaves out one of her biggest ballads to date ("We Belong

The best-selling female performer of the 1990s, Mariah Carey rose to superstardom on the strength of her stunning five-octave voice. An elastic talent who moved easily from glossy ballads to hip-hop-inspired dance-pop, she earned frequent comparison to rivals Whitney Houston and Celine Dion, but did them both one better by composing all of her own material. Born in Long Island, NY, on March 27, 1970, Carey moved to New York City at the age of 17 — just one day after graduating high school —...
