    My favourite album of all time (but I still had to delete Whenever You Call)

    Whispering is a hoodrat style of singing. Butterfly was her first hoodrat album...

    I wonder what made MC go the “whisper” route when singing on this? I totally took me aback (but not in a bad way). It wasn’t her usual loud vocals and belting notes. It worked so perfectly.

    That's one of the reasons I love her lyrics.

    Beautiful lyrics in here. In all songs. A true bible for a songwriter.

    I wish they all made her old albums released with deluxe bonus material! I'm disappointed they only released a vinyl for this and nothing else. :-? :-?

    I agree it's a very deep and autobiographical song. I feel this song can be interpreted many ways, I read an analysis that said the last verse/bridge is about a failed suicide attempt. :-? Her best songwriting is on this album.
    That song summaries my life. I recently found this gem

    I know, it's almost as if it's two people . She really delivered with this glorious album. I love the smooth production on this album. "Forth Of July" is my favourite. "Babydoll" is good. I don't get the hate for it and I adore "The Roof", "Breakdown", "Close My Eyes" and "My All".

    I agree! Everything she released post-Walter Afanasieff can't come close to the brilliance of their work together, and that includes the amazing "We Belong Together".

    This is one of the best R&B albums of the 1990s, it's sad that it gets overlooked because of Mariah's current image. I mean, it's up there with The Velvet Rope, My Life and The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill and those other great albums.

    I totally agree, who would have thought that it would all come to this twenty years after!?

    It's taken a few years for me to come around, but I finally agree with this being deemed her magnum opus.
    Yes sis. This album is legit everything. A masterpiece.


    Outside still gives me the holy ghost, chills and makes tear up.
    The last minute is

    ^ I kind of agree. I really love the song, although sometimes it feels unfinished for some odd reason (Unpopular opinion: I slightly prefer the Brian duet on #1's). And this was probably one of the first songs recorded for Butterfly. Her vocals sound so Daydream-ish here (also on Outside and parts of My All).
