    I knew I was forgetting a song when I made my list. I love STN. And are you sure that’s a middle 8 on Mine Again? Mariah usually does bridges, or she did before people stopped caring about them.

        Thank you for saying it!
        It's classic 70s song in 2000s version with Mariahs high notes what sounds like from Glitter era.
        Lyrics are sweet, you can feel how she sing it and tell the story of that song. For someone like me who is not hard fan and checking her albums is this jewel. And the end of this song always gets me.

            • I think everyone would re-listen her stuff and change mind about some of her song. I like her With You.

                To be honest, you would be happy she "shriek" back in time because she is actually exhausted of doing these notes now, so she did her best and I love it.

                • I do wish Caution had more belting

                  Maybe during recording she was listening to some of the lambs too much who were saying things like “sing in a lower key she can sing live” yet she was doing snippets like GML live on the phone live in a higher key and sounding even better

                    There were enough overdone vocals on MIAM. Caution and the laid back vocals was incredibly needed and welcome. Just like E=MC2 after the slightly hysterical TEOM vocals.

                      I disagree somewhat, GML sounded epic in that higher key, and it deserved big adlibs at the end


                      I think “Stay Long Love You” really comes alive in the last 30 seconds, and the belting on “8th Grade” is my favorite vocal moment on the album

                      The only vocals on MIAM that were overdone were the Heavenly and One More Try covers, and it wasn’t even the belting that was overdone

                      The vocals on Faded, Dedicated, B, Make It Look Good, YDKWTD, and Supernatural sounded amazing

                        I think Caution was definitely designed so she could do most of it live (which sadly yet predictably didn't really happen all that much).
                        The "Camouflage" approach she took on MIAM was, to me, a bit forced in a "Look guys, this is me doing 1000's of vocal layers because ya'll loved it on Butterfly". Not saying I dislike "Camouflage" but I can't say that the vocal arrangement feels like it serves the song. It was overthought and overproduced.

                          I didn’t name “Camoflauge” lol

                          The writing on that one is beautiful but yes it had an interesting vocal arrangement

                          The songs I named, Faded, Dedicated, B, Make It Look Good, YDKWTD, and Supernatural, all had the perfect balance of full, mix, and belted vocals

                          And she slayed YDKWTD live at every show, and let’s not forget this flawlessness

                            I know you didn't name "Camouflage". I did, because I find that an example for the overproduction on that album.

                                              I love the 7" Remix of that song. This single is indeed so rare, it wasn't even commercially released in the US.

                                                nah I don't wanna her to waste the spot with xmas songs, I want for new songs for the next album or something. she already did so much last xmas, she can slow down the promotion next xmas, we already got AIWFCIY at #1. it'd be cool if she did some sketches too

                                                • I don't know how to explain it, but Glitter (vocally) is a very distinctive era. Like, her vocals Charmbracelet and TEOM sound similar, while Glitter doesn't sound similar to almost any other era, but the closest thing that sounds related would be Rainbow, I can hear it on Lead The Way and Never Too Far. Was There For Me a Butterfly left over or Rainbow?
