            Album Title: Mariah Carey
            Release Date: June 12th 1990 by Columbia Records

            General Info: Mariah wrote many songs with Ben Margulies to create a demo tape (or more than one based on her Memoirs). After she was signed to Columbia, the demo versions were altered and partially re-recorded, many of them making the final cut for the album. Aside from Margulies, Mariah worked with a range of professional writers and producers, all of whom were hired by Columbia CEO Tommy Mottola: Rhett Lawrence, Ric Wake and Narada Michael Walden, all of whom were top record producers at the time. Columbia marketed Mariah as the main female artist on their roster and spent more than 1million dollars promoting the album.


            Reviews: they generally complimented Carey's voice and technique, but were ambivalent towards the songwriting.

            Commercial performance: the album topped the USA Billboard 200 Album Chart for 11 consecutive weeks, and was so far certified nine-times Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The album experienced similar success in Canada (#1 and 7xPlatinum cert), Australia (Top10), the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Worldwide, the album has sold more than 15 million copies.


            Singles: Carey became the first artist since The Jackson 5 to have their first four singles top the charts in the United States.
            US UK AUS CAN FRA GER
            "Vision of Love" 1 9 9 1 25 17
            "Love Takes Time" 1 37 14 2 57
            "Someday" 1 38 44 1 38
            "I Don't Wanna Cry" 1 49 2
            "There's Got to Be a Way" 54



            Accolades: Mariah Carey was nominated for the 1991 Grammy Award for Album of the Year, while "Vision of Love" received nominations in the categories of Song of the Year, Record of the Year and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. Mariah won for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance and also received the award for Best New Artist.

              I am surprised Love Takes Time is the #1 video with more views of this list, surpassing Vision of Love! And IDWC with 21M Views is also something I wasn't expecting.

              All views together total 114M for the debut Era.

                Love Takes Time is a proper ballad that straddles AC with a more memorable melody.....that's why it's globally loved more so than Vision of Love. The video itself is also more enjoyable to watch than VOL.

                I personally prefer LTT as a song and is still my favourite from this debut era.

                  I do think the debut era videos are not that impressive, but in terms of just pure R&B winners, the music is amazing!


                  I fell a lot more in love with IDWC after Vegas, but Love Takes Time has always had my heart.

                    By the time I was 10 (I was 5 when the debut album was released) we had 2 Mariah Carey albums in my house: Daydream and the Debut album, and when I got to hear them, I was instantly captivated. out of the two, I always gravitated towards Daydream more, but I vividly remember that feeling of discovering Mariah for the first time, it was like I knew It will never happen to me again with any other artist or music.

                      I was just 10yo back when this was released, and I only discovered music through my big brother, who would give me his "old" casettes, the ones he bought and was no longer listening to. So I remember only playing Roxette's Look Sharp! and Madonna's True Blue during those years. Mariah appeared in my life in 1992 with Emotions, made me a fan in 1994 with Music Box and transformed me into a lamb in 1997 with Butterfly.

                      So, I do not click too much with the sound around this era to be honest, although I love many songs from this set mainly because it's Mariah. I must admit that this era has 2 of the songs I hate the most from her...

                        Well, one of those better not be Prisoner... or we'll need to talk.

                          Yep. the Butterfly/#1's eras transformed me into a lamb as well.

                          I wonder which 2 songs from the debut era you hate the most.....

                            I do think Prisoner may be a tad overrated among the other gems on the album. I think it's highlighted a lot because it's so different from the rest of her discography, but the trio of All In Your Mind, Alone In Love and You Need Me deserve more.

                              I Don't Wanna Cry: I hated the song, could not believe it reached #1 and I always ranked it last in any singles rank. But it's been already a while since i found respect for the song, and now I even like it a lot. Maybe I am getting older and this is ver Adult Pop lol

                              For Someday, I adore the MTV Unplugged version. In fact, that's the version I preferred since the begining, as I bought Debut and MTV Unplugged the very same day, in LA during a family trip. Today I also enjoy the album version and remixes, but the unpligged gives imo a better edge to the song.

                                  1990... Vision Of Love... the first Mariah song I heard and I fell in love with it. So I bought the CD. The song is such an anthem with lyrics that meant so much to me: Treated me kind, Sweet destiny, Carried me through desperation... It took so long, Still I believed... Prayed through the nights, Felt so alone, Suffered through alienation, Carried the weight on my own, Had to be strong, So I believed, And now I know I've succeeded, In finding the place I conceived...
                                  Most of you know by now, but this was the song that I had played at our wedding.

                                  The songs grew on me pretty quickly, only All In Your Mind took a while before I took it into my heart. It was only when I first saw The First Vision where she sings the chorus acapella and doing the whistle notes, I was like: "Wow! This is a great song too!" Before I saw this video, I was wondering if she was doing those "whistles" with her voice or if it was an instrument. I found it hard to believe, she could do this with her voice (even though I knew she did some high notes on other songs like the end of Someday). I was stunned when I found out, she actually did do those whistles with her voice.

                                  I Don't Wanna Cry is one of my all time favorite Mariah songs. Such a great lyric and so much drama. The first line sets the tone for the rest of the song: Once again we sit in silence... I love how Mariah can capture the mood of the complete song in the first six words. I also love how she uses the deeper tones of her voice and the latin feel of the instruments. This is pure magic.

                                  Someday is a song that somehow reminded me of Whitney's I Wanna Dance With Somebody and I prayed it would become one of the singles as I was sure it would be a #1 for her. Can't believe the video is so way behind the other three singles when it comes to views. It was the first Mariah cd-single I bought as the first two didn't have any remixes. I loved how we got to hear the full whistle note at the end. Never understood why they let the album version fade out before the end of the whistle note.

                                  Vanishing was a song that gave me loads of respect for Mariah. Just her vocals and a piano, still one of the best songs of the album. It showed us what she was capable of and how much potention she had.

                                  Sent From Up Above was a favorite of mine when I had just bought the album. I was hoping it would become a future single. But then it was released as the b-side to Love Takes Time... You can imagine how thrilled I was when Dutch radio started to play the song on heavy rotation instead of Love Takes Time.

                                    Album Title: Emotions
                                    Release Date: September 21st 1991 by Columbia Records

                                    General Info: Less than a year after the release of her debut, Mariah co-wrote, co-produced and recorded her second studio effort, Emotions. She described it as a homage to the Motown soul music. The album deviated from the formula of Carey's 1990 self-titled debut album as she had more creative control over the material she produced and recorded. She employed the help of Walter Afanasieff, who only had a small role on her debut, as well as Robert Clivillés and David Cole, from the dance group C+C Music Factory. Mariah's relationship with Ben Margulies, who supported in her first era, deteriorated over a songwriting royalties dispute. After he filed a lawsuit against Columbia's parent company, Sony, the songwriting duo parted ways.

                                    Reviews: Though critics praised the album's content and described it as a more mature effort, the album was criticized as calculated and lacking originality.

                                    Commercial performance: While the album managed sales of eight million copies globally and eventually certified 4× Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), Emotions failed to reach the commercial and critical heights of its predecessor.

                                    Singles: The title track, the album's lead single, became Mariah's fifth consecutive chart topper on the Billboard Hot 100, making her the first artist to have their first five official singles reach the chart's summit. Due to Columbia's removal of the Can't Let Go physical single from stores in an attempt to boost the album's sales, the song failed to become her sixth chart topper in the US, peaking at number two.

                                    "Emotions" 1 17 11 1 39

                                    "Make It Happen" 5 17 35 7 74



                                    Accolades: At the 19th annual American Music Awards, MAriah took home the award for Favorite Soul/R&B Female Artist. At the 3rd annual Billboard Music Awards, she took home two trophies for Top Female Album Artist and Top Female Single. Additionally, Mariah was nominated for two Grammy Award at the 34th annual ceremony, for Producer of the Year and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, losing in both categories. All three of the album's singles were awarded BMI Pop Awards in 1993.

                                            Emotions the album... I was still so much into the first album that I couldn't believe there was another album on the way already! But I loved Emotions (the single) and was really curious if she could come up with another great album.

                                            Emotions the single was right up my alley. Up-tempo, the whistle notes, uplifting lyrics... loved everything about it. Then one day when I was watching TV, they played the remix and I was in total shock. The new intro was so out of this world, I just had to have this and went to every CD-shop to find the cd-single, which was not that easy to find as most shops only had the first cd-single that didn't contain remixes. The Emotions remixes are still among my favorite remixes ever by any artist.

                                            And You Don't Remember: I love the little clip they made for Mini-Disc. I wonder if there is a longer clip somewhere catching dust on a shelf.

                                            Can't Let Go: My sister hated how I overplayed the debut album and although she liked Mariah at first too, she didn't want to hear any Mariah anymore. So when the Emotions album had just been released, she didn't want to listen to it. But at dance class they played Can't Let Go and my sister came up to me and said: "Now this is a beautiful song!" And I was like: "Guess who's singing this?"

                                            To Be Around You was the b-side to Can't Let Go and radio made a jingle from the "more and more and more" part. It was really great to hear it all the time on the radio, even though it was just a few seconds. I also love the acapella version on the Unplugged VHS.

                                            Make It Happen: Great song, but even better in the MSG live version where she first added the "don't let go, don't ever ever let go" part. I also love the Dub Version where she sings the first part acapella and then goes into "You can make it, you can make it" which was later used for the Jenny Craig commercial.

                                            If It's Over: Tapesty is one of my all time favorite albums, so when I heard Mariah worked with Carole King, I was more than thrilled. I read how Carole wanted Mariah to cover You Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman, but that Mariah refused and wanted to write something new. Glad they did as If It's Over is one of the highlights on the album.

                                            You're So Cold: My favorite song when I first bought the album. I love the intro. Best intro ever! And I love the high note in the bridge. To me it was like Someday part 2, but even better. Not surprised this was considered to be the first single. Bit sad it never made it to single at all in the end.

                                            Till The End of Time: Such a beautiful song. Like it's from some romantic epic movie, playing in the background with great scenery of mountains and other beautiful views.

                                            The Wind: Although my least favorite song of the album, it's great how she adapted this jazzy instrumental into a Mariah song. It showed her versatility early on in her career.

                                              It's funny to think that Mariah wrote and produced Emotions (album) when she was just 21-22 y/o. shocking actually.
                                              I love this album very deeply. I think it stands out a lot thanks to it's "older" sound and the overall dramatic feel & vocals.
                                              Can't Let Go is really the highlight for me. one of a kind song, very special.

                                                It was early 92 and I was 12. My parents took us to a record store where me and my brothers could buy one CD each. I didn't have many CDs back then, I was mainly a Roxette fan and already had all their discography (3 albums lol). I also had The Inmaculate Collection and some Bon Jovi CDs, so would probably end up buying something from them to keep building my collection... but then I saw Emotions.

                                                I never ever heard anything from Mariah before. But holding that CD, reading the names of the songs and that beautiful girl, I remember vividly thinking "I will like this" so i bought it. It was very different from what I was listening to at the moment. I was glad about my choice but to be honest, I would not play the album that much, as competition was fierce against Roxette that I was obsessed about.

                                                Every now and then I would pick Emotions, give it a spin, but almost everytime I would stop in the middle and switch to a Roxette album. So For me Emotions was only a 5 song LP lol. I really don't remember giving a try to any song after If It's Over! Fortunately, my obsessio with Roxette waved, but unfortunately my growing obsession with Madonna was even stornger! So I would still have it there with few spins. I think I really gave it a chance once I became a lamb in the Butterfly era. That's when I really revisited her discography and discovered a powerful album.

                                                Can't Let Go is, and forever will be, one of her peaks imo. The MTV Unplugged version is sublime. Make It Happen too, I love that and cannot believe it "only"peaked at #5.

                                                I don't like You're so Cold, although it's not as bad as Prisoner/You Need Me lol. And The Wind, although I always try to give it more chances, does not click with me.

                                                  I think the Emotions album is criminally underrated. IMO, it is her most soulful record.
