  • This album is overall not her best, but not bad. I rank this over the overrated, Butterfly, Emotions and Glitter (the bottom 3), cos i generally still like most of the album tracks.

    Well, too much layers on vocals --> I agree
    This album contains just a few of average songs, the boring one Lullaby, poor remix of Through The Rain as well unlistenable one, the bonus track Gotta Thing 4 U
    But, this album also has many highlights!
    Through The Rain is among my top 3 all time fave songs from Mariah! My anthem. The vocal is not that wow, but suitbale enough with this song. Her whisper-ish vocal weirdly makes this song more interesting and personal.
    Boy (I Need You), a very weird song, but it's quite catchy! And the music video really helps like like this song even more. One of her best videos!
    Bringin' On The Heartbreak, a haunting cover, much better than the original. The final whistle note is epic!
    Sunflowers For Alfred Roy is so charming and peaceful! Surprised that so many fans hate this one!
    I Only Wanted, is among my all time fave non singles from her, Really like her Latin sound just like After Tonight, and of course My All
    The One is very interesting, slow but catchy at the same time
    My Saving Grace and Yours, both have amazing vocal!

    • 01 Through the Rain
      02 Bringin' On the Heartbreak
      03 Yours
      04 The One
      05 I Only Wanted
      06 You Had Your Chance
      07 Lullaby
      08 Subtle Invitation
      09 There Goes My Heart
      10 Sunflowers for Alfred Roy
      11 My Saving Grace

      I've played this a lot of times and I think that this should have been the final track listing. "Through the Rain" should have been the first single followed by "Bringin' On the Heartbreak". "The One" should be the third single and "I Only Wanted" can be a promo fourth single.

        Yas! Too true. I was so disappointed when this came out. I was like "why is she singing like Dido"? Also, this was the album when she became Screech-riah in her upper register. TTR was the first time I started grimacing when she belted the high notes - so much so that it was almost a relief that she was Dido-riah for most of the album. I actually thought at the time that she was trying to purposely change her sound so that it would make it easier for her to sing her songs live in the future.

        Having said that, I went to the CB London concert with subterranean expectations and was pleasantly surprised.

        • I listened to Charmbracelet again but I can't get to like it any more and I still prefer Glitter over this...
          But the time went sailing by, reluctantly we said goodbye and left our secret place so far behind...

          • There's actually not a single song I dislike in this album and I think it's better than TEOM
            It's a transitional album, of course, but it gets way too much hate among fans (just like MOAIA).

            • I love Charmbracelet.
              It's a gem and it gots My saving grace and the ultra baby-making smash You got me.
              Mixing's terrible on the record, tho.
              Just a DEVIANT, PERTURBED, DERANGED, MACABRE, MANIAC, LUNATIC, IRRATIONAL PSYCHO-TO-BE.

              • An underrated record. I love Through the Rain, Boy, The One, My Saving Grace, I Only Wanted, Clown. Some lambs may see it as her worst album but IMO, this is better than most of today's artists best albums.

                • Too much filler, weak vocals, boring overall.

                  Through The Rain and Bringin' On The Heartbreak are two of her best songs doe.

                  • The best songs here are:

                    Through the Rain
                    The One
                    Yours
                    Lullaby
                    Bringin' On the Heartbreak

                    • I grew to love this album... There's not a song here that I don't like.

                      • The album booklet was her last great one. I love her natural look here, all her album booklets were megaphotoshopped since.

                        • not a bad album...it has its moments but I don't always feel like listening to it.

                          • This was released a year after Glitter. If this was released 3-4 years after, people would have warmed up to the album. It's a solid album lyrically. It's weird that her next album was about her 'emancipation' when she barely talked about her struggles in life and love in that album. This album encapsulates the theme of being free from pain and struggles more than her next album.

                              • It's not that great but it's not as terrible as some people make it to be.
                                Through The Rain
                                I Only Wanted
                                Lullaby
                                Subtle Invitation
                                Bringin' On The Heartbreak
                                are all great.

                                • The problem with this album is her voice, if she sang it well it would have been one of her very best.

                                    I love her singing style on this. It's what makes the album so dope to me.

                                    • The One, I Only Wanted and Subtle Invitation >>>

                                      Those three tracks are 3 of her best songs on this millenium imo.


                                      There Goes My Heart is also one of my fave hidden Mariah gems. Those raspy belts are givin' me LIFE!

                                      • Never got the love for The One. I was glad when they changed their minds and released Boy instead of it as a single.

                                        Yours, Lullaby and Subtle Invitation are my favourites from this. Recently mind My Saving Grace has started coming for them.

                                            I actually feel the same way now...

                                            And Boy (I Need You) >>> The One...

                                            Boy was a good single choice at the time, people just weren't feeling Mariah.

                                              • Boy (I Need You) music video is actually really good.That era had great visuals that largely go unnoticed :(

                                                • I enjoyed this album. A lot of fans/stans pay it dust tho. It has some very solid vocal performances and production on it.
