Mariah Carey’s ‘Mimi’ Charmingly Forgettable

Mariah Carey 'The Emancipation Of Mimi' album cover

Dan Gennoe of dotmusic reviewed Mariah Carey’s new album ‘The Emancipation Of Mimi’, giving it 5 out of 10 stars. Gennoe writes, “The album’s title may suggest strength – or perhaps koo-koo la la nuttiness– but throughout she plays the vulnerable diva desperately in need of someone to take care of her a little too convincingly. Mad or not, Carey’s not stupid. She’s always surrounded herself with the best people to aid her cause. Here she’s spared no expense.”

The entire review at has since been removed.

    “Having co-written most of the tracks”… The ***** wrote all the tracks on there… this was the 3rd CD that she actually didn’t do a cover song.

    WTF is he talking about? Her album will be more memorable than his stupid review, which will be remembered for 5 seconds lol.

    ‘Mimi’ is Mariah’s best album, but that’s only because all her other records are lame. ‘Charmbracelet’ was mad sloppy. ‘We Belong Together’ is fabulous, ‘It’s Like That’ is a banger…Just played out, I prefer the ballads over the uptempo numbers…Just cause they don’t hit. ‘Mimi’ isn’t a flawless record, and you probably won’t listen to it for years to come. Then again, their really hasn’t been records released this year that were really spectacular. I love Jennifer Lopez but ‘Rebirth’ was a disaster, and it tanked miserably. It’s kinda sad when a album is soo horrible they can’t find any potential singles, so they decide to scrap promotion of it all together.


    Wow wane I’m impressed. You like real music and admit that rebirth flopped, wow’, ‘I think rebirth has only 2 songs that are “good”: “step into my world” and “hold you down”. The rest is god awful

    ‘Mimi’ isn’t Mariah’s best. It’s really good, but it can’t hold a candle to her…’, ‘debut, emotions, merry Christmas, daydream, and butterfly. “Mariah Carey” and “Butterfly” are her best work. “Mimi” is good, but it’s not nearly as good as these two albums.

    I disagree. I hate “Circles” and “Mine Again”, even though I love her ballads.’, ‘I don’t know why I hate these two songs, but I just do. Probably because she’s so pitchy on both of them.

    lol, pitchy, I hate that word, American idol so over used it’, ‘and to me if she wrote the song she sets the pitch, and with all her octaves it’s never going to be the same throughout the song, I’m listening to Circles now, and I love it, but that’s my opinion

  8. Babar says:

    What a loser!’, ‘Posting one critic’s review of an album is so unfair, I can post so many more scathing reviews of Xtina’s Stripped, Brit’s ITZ and J.Lo.’s REBIRTH. Its the overall thing. And Mimi is doing fabulously overall. And critics over the age of 6 have given Mimi full marks.

  9. niceg says:

    5 stars! That’s too high. None would be most appropriate.’, ‘Finally, someone gave a great review. But Mimi is no more diva. She’s now whore-riah. The best people to aid her cause are Mental doctors and psychiatric wards.
