Mariah Carey

Rating: N

You really can’t blame Mariah Carey for going bonkers and checking herself in to the bin for a while. Chances are you’d go crazy, too, if you’d signed a big new deal, turned in your first album and then belatedly realized that you’d forgotten to put any songs on it. It’s not as though people are expecting grand works of art from the soft-pop diva, but with a dozen songwriters pulling the strings, even the biggest slacker would be embarrassed by this completely tune-free mess, where breathy singing stands in for pop hooks and the only substantial parts are done by guests like Ludacris and Busta Rhymes.
