I used to be a very big fan of Mariah's. I own all of her albums from her debut through #1s (or Rainbow, whichever is more recent)... Glitter is the first I didn't buy. Her Christmas album is a staple of the season. Starting with Butterfly, her music started to become more R&B, and now it's mediocre gangsta pop/rap (or at least that's what makes the radio), unfortunately. I wish she'd flash that amazing voice of her's more often.
I LOVE her old music, though- still some of my favorite music to listen to. She has some classic 90s pop... I'd buy her 2-disc Greatest Hits, but I already have almost all the songs. I might pick up some of her DVDs some day.
If you're as big a fan of Mariah's as I am of Amy's, you might be interested to know that I have the 1991 episode of Oprah on DVD in which Amy & Mariah were featured on a "Grammys Divas with Love Ballads" special or something like that in which the two traded off singing their songs and then did a joint interview (and were then joined by Aaron Neville
), as well as that year's Grammy show where both Amy & Mariah were repeatedly screwed by Bonnie Raitt (nothing against Bonnie).
