    Mariah wont record new material to go on an album (see: cash-in) for a label she is no longer on and which the old head of once tried to ruin her career! lol
    Sorry hun! Meant to say "No unreleased material!" She has plenty of b-sides and unreleased material from Columbia days!
    Yeah, I was hoping for some old unreleased material too!!!!!
    I really like the cover and gonna get that

      Well, it's not for big Mariah fans, is it - it's a mop-up cash in for the casual music fans or even just Xmas shoppers.

          Yes, true, I just don't see the point in it though. She already has two of them that have just about the same songs on them (if the tracklist presented before was correct)

            I agree about all the comments about a pointless release, although a fair few Xmas shoppers will no doubt buy it.

            The tracklist must be wrong though. Hero is widely regarded as one of - if not THE best Mariah ballad, so I can't see it not making the final cut for this compilation.

              I think that tracklisiting will be for "Love Songs". That would explain why "Hero" isn't there - it's not about love. "The Ballads" would definitely have "Hero" on it, especially over "Reflections". :-?

                I agree about the comments that their should be unreleased stuff. I want an 'unreleased' 'b sides' album one day she has enough of both to do a bloody double album lol

                    Not sure if this was posted somewhere else, but the official tracklisting is:


                    1. Hero
                    2. Vision Of Love
                    3. Without You
                    4. Always Be My Baby
                    5. My All
                    6. How Much (ft. Usher)
                    7. Dreamlover
                    8. Thank God I Found You/Make It Last Remix (ft. Nas and Joe)
                    9. The Roof
                    10. One Sweet Day (with Boyz II Men)
                    11. Anytime You Need A Friend
                    12. I'll Be There (ft. Trey Lorenz)
                    13. I Still Believe
                    14. Reflections
                    15. Open Arms
                    16. Against All Odds (ft. Westlife)
                    17. Endless Love (with Luther Vandross)
                    18. All I Want For Christmas (Bonus Track)
                    So, it does include "Hero", as well as another 11 UK Top 10's, another 2 UK #1's, another UK Top 20, and three unreleased tracks. All four "Music Box" singles are included - which is Mariah's best selling album to date, in the UK.

                    The album does not include UK Top 10's, "When You Believe", "Through The Rain" and "We Belong Together", and interestingly includes five songs that I wouldn't class as 'ballads'.

                    According to MariahDaily.com, the album is scheduled for release in:

                    UK & Ireland - October 20
                    Italy - October 24
                    Japan - November 3
                    U.S. & Canada - January 2009

                      what about other countries releasing the ballads?

                        There isn't any confirmation on other countries yet. The UK date is official, and the album is available for pre-order on HMV and Play.com.

                          I've seen adverts for this so many times today on TV.
                          I'm almost tempted to buy it.

                                I was aware of that, but the former was on Sony.

                                Is this really released tomorrow?

                                    Hmmm maybe it's a bit early just now, they probably will later on when the Christmas songs start zooming up I-tunes.

                                      damn, they really smushed AAO and EL in there at the very end :-? smart choices overall, though, especially making sure to include both her No. 1's

                                      as much as I love AIWFCIY, it's far too upbeat to fit with a "ballads" theme IMO...clearly just tagged on to boost holiday sales

                                          The album's somewhere between #21 and #30 in the midweeks. Don't have the exact position.

                                          Hopefully it will keep on selling during the entire holiday season.

                                                Don't like the overall cover, photo makes the bottom half of her face look kinda chimp-ish. The photo on the inside is nice though.
