  • At the time L.A. was the most important person there, and if he was behind the project then everyone else's opinions and comments were irrelevant.

    Wmosi & I were talking about the U.S. when regarding promo and this album's sales compared to other Christmas albums.

    • I think really most people would have thought, why mess with a classic? By that I mean the original Merry Christmas being such an Xmas album staple, AIWFCIY being a annual hit, it might have just seemed a bit desperate for her to release a second Christmas album, especially coming straight after an album that underperformed. Considering that Merry Christmas still sells so well, I think this did OK.

      Oh Santa was a great track but maybe it wasn't christmassy enough for people to think of this album as another classic Christmas album. Anyway, maybe it underperformed but we got some great performances from Mariah and a massive step up in production, lyrics and vocals from Memoirs.

        Still in this day and age, a second xmas album going Gold is not bad at all.

          • I feel like it's not enough to re-release an album.
            They can't compete with MC
            The whole entire world can tell
            That you love yourself some me

              • Why thank you for correcting me, dahhling!

                Well, if Mariah was smart enough, she should promote this too later this year, I think it wouldn't hurt to see her do promo after promo before Idol, and the album release next year.

                • This would definitely start selling again this Christmas season if she promoted it. There are still quite a few potential singles left on the album, like 'Christmas Time Is In The Air Again', 'Here Comes Santa Claus' or 'One Child'. But I don't think it's gonna happen tbh.

                  • Can't believe we are only two months away from Mariah's craziness
                    You ain't gotta break down,
                    YOU'RE TOO STRONG!"

                    • I would actually die from happiness if "Christmas Time Is In The Air Again" gets a single release with a classy video. More people should hear the song 'cause the song deserves to be a classic. This is the best thing she's done in the past 10 years IMO.

                          I think it's in my top 10 fav MC songs, but if the video is a sexy one then its better to remain unreleased.

                          • Not gonna lie I really didn't want her to do this album. I was so pleasantly surprised how classy and well produced it sounded I thought it was a sort of return to form.

                            • This was so unexpected and sudden for the fans, especially when Mariah suddenly hinted this era in a Larry King interview, if I'm not mistaken, but you can really tell that Mariah put so much heart and soul in this project.

                                Yeah I thought it was mistake at first because of how successful her first album was.

                                But it is such a beautiful album. Vocally a return to form. Great production. The lush sounding music is stunning and adds such a unique warm feel to the album. The orginal tracks are some of the best she had done since her Sony days.

                                She fully understood what was expected of her and she knew she had to deliver an album that stood up to its predecessor and it most certainly did.

                                I really love it and there are parts of it that are even better than the first album.

                                                Anyway, this should have made an amazing alternate cover!
