    Well how exciting all this is. It's so nice to hear her with those live instruments, the strings, and the choirs again.

    I think people are maybe overstating how her voice sounds. It sounds like rusty old 2010 Mariah voice to me. I mean a great version of that where her voice has had good rest and she's really going for it, and not relying on overproduction of the vocal, but still hardly anything like the old days. I noticed from those snippets she's singing from her throat for full-voice notes in a way she never has before, but her voice is in pretty good shape.

    I'm really looking forward to hearing O Come All Ye Faithful, it's one of my absolute favourite Christmas songs and to hear her song with her mother on that snippet was actually quite moving!

    I'm just mad that now I have to wait 3 weeks before the a;bum arrives intead of 1! :evil:

    I've been a Mariah fan since Daydream and that OCAYF snippet is one of her best vocal performances since Butterfly! I doesnt not sound anything like rusty 2010 Mariah. Live might be another story but as a recording. This sounds to be blowing anything post TEOM out the water mate.

    @firefly_86 I cannot disagree with you anymore her voice sounds crystal clear. Are we listening to the same songs?? Honestly vocally this is phenomenal I got a lump in my throat when I heard this it's just simply breathtaking!I really don't think ur giving her enough credit and really playing it down:S

    I think she sounds nothing like Rusty Mariah of 2010. Definately like TEOM vocals but with hints of the 90's. Obviously no where as clear or crisp as the 90's but she has sang like we all wanted and proved she still has it.

    lets not get carried away and develop a 00's name for her ...... rusty mariah. lol.

    a new album, a new start, and a new decade. So hopefully this is what 2010-2020 mariah sounds like.

    I honestly believe mariah knew this was make or break time n that If she didn't deliver vocally it'd b all over. Okay yes live maybe another story but we can getto tht bridge when we come to it but those vocals came from somewhere

    after hearing the descriptions of tracks, this is also one of her most creative albums. not just of recent years, but ever.

    Well maybe "rusty Mariah" wasn't the appropriate description lol. But I don't hear some return to 90s vocals like some people are describing, I mean that would be impossible.

    What I'm trying to say is that some people are exaggerating in claiming it sounds like the deterioration of her voice over the last 10-15 years has been undone. That's ridiculous. BUT it's so nice to hear her voice in relatively good shape and actually putting 100% into the vocals again, for the first time since TEOM IMO. And complimented beatufully by the instrumentation and backing choirs / vocals. But we'll know the full pcture when the album comes

    Absolutely, and that's why I'm possibly the most excited I've ever been for a Mariah album Well other than E=MC2 but I have faith this will be the opposite to the disappointment that was!

    Just joining the party and OMG I just can't!! It's too much. I feel like the double rainbow guy. I cannot handle these vocals. Somewhere, Oprah is weeping from the sheer unstoppable force of MC's vocals. On Nov. 2 Oprah is going to flood the world with her tears.

    This is the follow-up to Merry Christmas, she knew in order for it to be well received she would have to match it vocally and musically. And she did.

    When I listen to these clips I hear Merry Christmas melisma and super high Daydream belts with her TEOM tone.

    To me her voice sounds exactly like it did on TEOM but with more runs and vibratto and some of the whispers sound "Charmbracelet-esque" which isn't a bad thing.

    LA Reid said she wanted to do the album for 3 years! So maybe she got the go for it this year because her vocals was good enough for such an album (2007/2008 - worst vocal state)!

    LMAO that reminds me of some of those photoshopped pics that popped up before Memoirs leaked, like mariah stuck in a car surrounded by millions of lambs. ICANT! I'm expecting some to pop up this era too

    i remember that too. She played Candy Bling out of her limo before, and when lambs asked other lambs via twitter how'd it sound, they said "sounds like something rihanna would do it was hard to hear" booy they were wrong lol.
