Okay, I love Mariah Carey, I know some don't but I just think she is incredible! I've recently done my own compilation, and for some reason I have always dismissed Charmbracelet as being her weakest album. I always just skipped through the tracks without giving them a go.

Thankgod I decided to actually listen to it all the way through, it's so good, and I think this is like the Butterfly album 2.0 - like how E=MC2 was the second Emancipation of Mimi.

Rainbow is the album, I think is the weakest! I like a few songs (Heartbreaker, Can't Take That Away, Thank God I Found You, and Against All Odds (Mariah's solo version)

Any Mariah fans out there with a soft spot for Charmbracelet? Got it on as we speak

I bought Charmbracelet a few years back for 99p but only really bought it for 'Through The Rain'. I can't say i've ever listened to the rest properly. I'll have to dig it out.

Yeah please do Some of the songs take a while to get into, but it's so worth it! "You Had Your Chance", "My Saving Grace"... I could name the whole album. Lemme know what you think

One of my favourite Mariah albums. Through The Rain, My Saving Grace, You Got Me, The One, I Only Wanted, Clown, You Had Your Chance, Sunflowers for Alfred Roy and Bringin on The Heartbreak are all brilliant tracks...the duds are PURE DUDS though like irresistable and subtle invitation are rubbish-Mariah does not suit that jazzy type big band style.

Yayy! Knew I wasn't the only one who loved it
You Had Your Chance would have been an amazing single I think.

Is this the album that had Boy (I Need You) on it? I loved that song even though I'm not a Mariah Carey fan.

the album is one of her weakest through the rain,clown,saving grace,irrestistle,sunflowers for alfred roy & subtle invitation & bringing on the heartbreak great.
yours,I only wanted,boy I need you & lullaby album filler.
even mariah herself has admitted it wasn't as good as emanicpation of mimi if it hadn't been so rushed.
and she'd have had more time but she'd just signed to a new label and just recovered from her breakdown.

I <3 it! Love pretty much anything she does to be honest. Triumphant has grown loads on me.
Must be a LAMB

I only like Clown and Boy (I Need You) on this album. I definitely think it was one of her weakest albums.

It's not a favourite of mine and Charmbracelet and Rainbow are from around the time I got a bit bored with Mariah, as I just didn't enjoy the music she was doing at that time. But I have listened to both those albums again in recent months and enjoy them more now. They're still my two least favourite Mariah albums but they're nowhere near as bad as I'd originally considered them. There's some good stuff on them. But definitely a lot of weak filler too.

Thanks. I love that song for some reason. Maybe it's because she's not screaming much in it?

Watching it now. Did a cat accidentally wonder onto the set by mistake?

It's not awful neither is it brilliant. For me its like had he had the fun and more interesting aspects of Rainbow with the more mature aspects of Charmbracelet combined would have been the perfect album but as singular entities both are below par Emancipation was certainly a return to form.

Lmao....in her defence though, the one time I ever heard her sing it live, she did nail it. I feel like the Charmbracelet era was very lacklustre, but I did love this song.
