    This album has some great songs. I think it's obvious the transformation as a songwriter she was going through, and later showed on TEOM

    Most of this album has a chill vibe like none of her other albums (except maybe Caution now) and I love it for that. Itís there when I need it. A couple of tracks are weaker than the rest, but thatís the same as most albums. The tracklist flows the worst of any of her albums though and I think itís what puts people off most when giving it a listen all the way through. Thereís also the unfortunate fact her worst song ever, Boy (I Need You), is on this album and got released as a single

    ^ I think the new style of singing was to try something different. I had to get used to it as well.
    I love Yours though. I think it's in the vein of Underneath The Stars and Fourth Of July that are among my favorite songs as well.
    All in all it's probably my least favorite Mariah album too.

    So I listened to the album for the fourth time now:

    1. Through the Rain 8/10
    2. Boy (I Need You) 5/10
    3. The One 8/10
    4. Yours 1/10
    5. You Got Me 4/10
    6. I Only Wanted 7/10
    7. Clown 8/10
    8. My Saving Grace 6/10
    9. You Had Your Chance 8/10
    10. Lullaby 8/10
    11. Irresistible (West Side Connection) 0/10
    12. Subtle Invitation 4/10
    13. Bringin' On the Heartbreak 10/10
    14. Sunflowers for Alfred Roy 10/10
    15. Through the Rain (Remix) 6/10

    The lyrics are good and it's probably one of her most personal albums. It's just the fact that some songs sound the exact same or that you can't tell the difference between the chorus or the verses. "Yours" and "Irresistible" are simply unbearable. Also what the hell happened to her vocals on this album? They sound horrible and we're talking about Mariah Carey, one of the best singers of all time. She's whispering throughout the entire album. :-?

    It got a little better for me with each listen tho. I guess you just have to listen to it as a whole and have to give it a few more spins. But it's still definitely my least favorite album of hers so far (still have to listen to Mariah Carey, Daydream, Emotions and Glitter tho). The only song I'll come back to is the amazing "Bringin' On the Heartbreak". Boy (I Need You), Yours, You Got Me, Irresistible & Subtle Invitation could've easily been erased from the tracklist and could've been replaced with better songs. The "Through the Rain" Remix is kinda bad and unnecessary as well.

    I always thought artists make the best music when they go through a hard time (see Britney's "Blackout" or Janet's "The Velvet Rope") but I guess that's not the case here. :-?

    ^ Through The Rain and Bringin' On The Heartbreak are my favorites.
    I loved the TTR video and live tv performances. Such a great start to this era.
    She should come to Europe again for promo. She was so loved back then here.

    So I listened to "Charmbracelet" for the very first time last night and it was so boring. Out of all the Mariah albums that I've listened to this is definitely my least favorite. I felt like I was listening to the same song for an hour because everything sounded the same to me. All the songs were either boring as hell or just okay. No wonder that she didn't have a hit from this album. I definitely won't be listening to this album anytime soon. :-?

    The only songs I really really liked were "Bringin' On the Heartbreak" and "Sunflowers for Alfred Roy". Beautiful songs. "Lullaby", "The One" and "Through the Rain" were okay/good as well.

    "The One" grew on me a lot through the years. I thought it was too generic but I now like the simplicity of it.

    This is indeed one of her most personal albums. It talks about what she went through more than the other 2000s albums she released. It felt like a therapy record for her as well after the breakdown.

    Also, "You Got Me" is so underrated. It's the catchiest song on the album and it was unnoticed. "I Only Wanted" would have worked as a second international single.

    I agree! I think she penned some great songs here, even better than some on her more popular albums of the 2000/10s

    See, I spent so many sleepless nights
    Tryna block you from my mind
    I was so convinced I'd die without you
    Once upon a time
    Now my eyes are open and I can see
    You were devious and shady
    Only trifling with me


    I love You Had Your Chance

    While her vocal performance in the entire album is an acquired taste (which I've grown accustomed to btw) it was really her pen-game that saved the album.

    So the question is
    One: do I really want to trust this feeling?
    Two: do I want to let it pass me by?
    Three: do you think it's only superficial?
    Four: could it actually be different this time?
    Someone to love me
    Someone to be my everything


    I don't think she's written a more relatable song
    Songwriting legend snapped
