Malcolm X Abram of the Beacon Journal was on hand Sunday night as Mariah Carey brought her ‘Charmbracelet’ tour to Scene Pavilion. Abram said, “Though many of Carey’s songs are bland, her voice is able to lift the material, and her fans probably wouldn’t care if she sang nursery rhymes for two hours. On her hip-hop flavored tunes, including current hit ‘I Know What You Want’ featuring video of rappers Busta Rhymes and Rah Digga, Carey seemed more like an afterthought. She strolled through to sing the hook and strolled off again to change outfits. Carey’s career may have peaked in the last decade, but like Madonna — another driven pop icon — she won’t be going away anytime soon, and her fans wouldn’t have it any other way.”
