Mariah Carey Forgiven For Her Greatest Crime

Marty Hughley of The Oregonian reviewed ’s concert on December 9th in the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall. Hughley writes, “Carey did occasionally show off her peculiar vocal signature, those little passages of notes somewhere in the range of Q over high Z, about half an octave down from a dog whistle, unrelated to the songs in either melody or meaning. But I’m more inclined now to forgive her greatest crime — the way she’s inspired a generation of singers who think more notes equals more music, that melismatic overdecoration spells passion and expressive technique. After all, it’s not her fault that other singers lack the equipment she has. Her phrasing was fluid and soulful. On such tunes as ‘My All’, her lower register was warmly expressive in a manner recalling Stevie Wonder.”

    After Jacko, Mariah will be next in jail for this crime! She can start singing 100 octaves or mimic animal sounds, but once it’s over, it’s over.

    I’M PRETTY SURE IT HURTS A LOT OF HATERS TO SEE MARIAH GET ANY KIND OF GOOD REVIEWS.

    We’re actually happy and very entertained to see how flop the flop-chop can get. Always a good laugh for the movie critics to compare any movie to Glitter.

    Haha, David Bowie, a far superior artist, sold out MSG. Got a 2 page write-up with pictures for his review. Mariah got a 1 or 2 column review with a single picture for her review. That is when you know one artist is more respected and a legend over the other.
