    Emotions Era was so short! (and a bit eclipsed by Unplugged).

    I count those two as the same Era tho, at least vocally. That was her first vocal peak IMO - and my favorite ('91-'92). Every register was ON POINT.

    When I discovered this album in the 1990s... I was like... ehm... why wasn't this the biggest album ever? LOVE it.

    It may not have lasted that long, but it still went 4x Platinum... lol.

    Another album of hers that can play from start to finish without skipping any track.

    Masterpiece after masterpiece.

    Emotions AKA The Vocal Bible

    She SAAAAANG on this album. Vocally, her very best.

    I just noticed that she belted an A5 on "To Be Around You" (3:04, BG harmonies)




    A BOP btw.

    She was looking very Music Box Era in this commercial!

    There were enough great songs left to release as follow up single to Make It Happen.
    Emotions could have been much bigger had they not end the era so fast.

    I really only loved MC's music from Daydream onwards but in the last 6 months I've really come to appreciate the Emotions album. Better late than never, I guess.

    I know. When I read I'll Be There was her new single, I thought it was a mistake.
    It didn't even last for half a year, it's like they moved on when "Make It Happen" underperformed.

    Vocally glorious but a very boring album. "You Don't Remember" was one of the finest songs on it, though.

    "If It's Over" is amazing. It should have been a single!

    "Can't Let Go" is a great song as well.

    One of my all time favorite albums. And one I stil love to play today from start to finish.

    It starts of with one of my all time favorite songs: Emotions. Puts a smile on my face every time. Love the high notes.

    Can't Let Go has one of the most beautiful intro's of her carreer. Love the drama and the passion.

    Make It Happen is such a great up lifting song with great story telling.

    If It's Over is MC and Carole King at their best.

    You're So Cold has such an amazing intro. Mariah's vocals are out of this world here.

    So Blessed: love the lyrics, love the vocals. This song is BIG!

    To Be Around You: this song makes me think of parties and summer time. Love the overall feel.

    Till The End Of Time: such an amazing song. It's like a mini romantic movie that sweeps me of my feet.

    And You Don't Remember is just a regular MC ballad and The Wind is a little too jazzy for me, but still: both songs deserve their place on this album too.

    The first half of the album is too strong compared to the second half.
