      It's a shame the UK version doesn't have "Never Too Far" and "Can't Take That Away"... I adore those... would have preferred them over "How Much" anyway!

        I think Love Takes Time and Can't Let Go are two of her strongest ballads (even if she admitted the latter is a re-hash of Sent From Up Above). It's such a shame they were never big in the UK, so now they weren't included on this compilation and the only people I know who even know those songs are Mariah fans.

          the Japanense release also leaves off "Against All Odds" (a ballad) and adds "Can't Take That Away" (another ballad)

                  Hero is #110 on UK iTunes!
                  Probably thanks to the X-Factor finalists performance!

                      Which "Hero" is it? The one on 'The Ballads', '#1s', 'Greatest Hits' or 'Music Box'?

                          It's the one on The Ballads, Sam.

                          In return it's also helped the album climb 27-16 (though it was #15 earlier).

                            Album has entered the UK Album Chart at #17.

                            Although it's climbed 7 spots from midweek, I'm not expecting it to climb next week due to strong competition and strong new releases, but it should stay consistent, Top 25 at least.

                              yes Top 30 next week will be satisfactory for sure, anyway it's pretty good debut, Top 20 and it was mainly made on X-Factor effect

                                        Mariah's version of Hero is up to #47.
                                        Glad it's still going up. I thought it might start going down since the X-Factor version is on iTunes now.

                                          Up 17-14 in midweeks despite 6 new releases above it. Its sales must be up quite a bit.

                                            Nice to see that The Ballads is doing so well.

                                            It would probably have done even better if songs like We Belong Together and Don't Forget About Us had been included though. Hopefully IDJ, Virgin and Sony can work together one day to create an amazing Greatest Hits package.

                                            Was it released in the US as well?

                                                3.) "Vision Of Love"
                                                4.) "Without You"

                                                for what it's worth, it looks like this will be the first edition of The Ballads to include "When You Believe"

                                                    Is that cover the official one or the black and white one? I prefer what you posted, volver.

                                                    Hmm, I love the songs from The Ballads but she's got more pretty good songs that ain't here.
