    • Not only Mariah's best album, but greatest album of all times IMO.

        Both albums are excellent.

        The whole Butterfly album is superb. A couple of tracks had to grew on me (I used to hate "Babydoll" 15 years ago, shame on me) but I can easily listen to the whole album without skipping any tracks now.

              i totally agree. Based on the quality of the tracks and album, this deserved to be diamond. But maybe it’s a good thing it didn’t because it would have been over exposed and not appreciated for what it is and means today. I listen to this album more than any diamond album (like Usher Confessions and *NSync No Strings Attached).

                Correct. But to think even this promo had a (live) video with Brian!

                • Just wanted to mention that Close My Eyes is my all time fave from MC. The words relate in so many ways.
                  This album itself, minus the glorious singles, was pure fire!!! I really wish CME and Beautiful Ones received video treatment.

                  • Close My Eyes is one of her best songs EVER. I would've loved a video for it.

                    The song is so dreamy, and dem lyrics pure poetry <3

                    The Beautiful Ones is Mariah's best cover.

                        Definitely a fan favorite! <3

                        She should add the track to the setlist, not permanently but for some shows.

                        I'd love to hear this song live if she comes to my country...

                        Love this performance!

                        • It would be a nice addition to the setlist for a night or two

                          • I wish Mariah would listen to the fans and have era segments of her catalog.

                            Imagine having a concert set list with a Butterfly medley of hits.

                            I suggest it should be like this for Butterfly medley:

                            1. The Roof (Back in Time)
                            2. Close My Eyes
                            3. Breakdown
                            4. Whenever You Call

                            Of course, "Honey" and "My All" should be on the main set list.

                              Someone said at one of her Caution Tour dates that she suggested having a show or something dedicated to individual albums. I think it was TEOM though.

                              • I'd be so here for a Butterfly medley and a TEOM medley, damn, girl.

                                    • Imagine, anyone, she would do an Unplugged 2.0 and have the beautiful piano version of Close my Eyes in the setlist.. I would scream, faint and die.

                                            It honestly took me years to get into The Roof. I never got what everyone saw in it. More recently though I can see why it’s a vibe. I love when she writes songs where the lyrics are telling a story.

                                            Breakdown on the other hand was instant and relatable to me. I cried many nights to it.

                                                • One of the greatest records of all time. Vocally, lyrically, sonically, visually...
                                                  The vibe and the feeling of this album is still unparalleled.
