She is a brilliant vocalist, singer-songwriter, and producer. Hopefully, a new record will come from her in 2017!

For all of her success, Mariah Carey is still highly underrated as a vocalist, songwriter, and producer. She has written classic songs that still sound fresh on the radio today. There's no denying that after nearly 22 years, "Always Be My Baby," doesn't sound incredible on the radio. No one has come onto the scene in the last twenty-five years who has been able to truly master the range, soul, and vocal prowess of Mariah Carey.

No denying Carey's talent and has had some great great songs. However, like most pop albums, none of her's really come together for something great. Her 90's material though is far better than anything she's done recently.

She has a great voice and clearly has talent, but all of her songs are basic RnB/pop ballads.

There is no doubt that Mariah Carey is one of the greatest voices that have ever happened in history, as far as all that's been recorded. I don't think it is necessary to compare her voice to that of Whitney Houston, Alison Krauss, Sainkho Namtchylak, or even Lara Fabian, because they're all different. Mariah Carey's ability to pull off long, expansive notes without noticeable breathing is remarkably striking.

Of course some of the music she produces is too boring for most people and poor lyrics or even poor themes fall all over the place, but there are also some genuinely great moments which are truly enjoyable, and indeed better than some patronizing 'masterpieces' from those 'greats'. Anyway I like her for what she has to offer.

Mariah Carey is the greatest singer/songwriter/producer/music pioneer of our generation. Mariah Carey is legit a legend of music. 18 #1’s and counting!

I know someone like her is fashionable to bash because of her big voice and diva reputation, but she has given us some excellent songs over the year and is one of the only "pop divas" to give us some solid ALBUMS over the years (Butterfly, Emancipation Of Mimi, her debut, etc...). Not a fave and IMO not worthy of challenging the Beatles' #1 record, but in a sea of mediocre female pop stars, she's one of the very few I admit to owning music of and enjoying.

A multi octave voice that is wonderful to listen to. she has made 3 great albums - Butterfly, Music Box and Daydream. Emotions is also a good album. She hasn't done anything of significance since 2005.

Mariah definitely has an unparalleled talent in singing, but her lyrics are really way too sweet so that they seem like fakes... It's overly psycho, especially when it comes to love. Btw, Never Too Far is among her best love songs imo.
