Album Review

The 2011 double-disc collection The Essential Mariah Carey is a retitled reissue of the 2001 set Greatest Hits, containing the same 29 tracks in the same sequence. All Mariah’s big hits of the ‘90s are here, including several singles that never made it to the top of the charts, and while it loses momentum by the end of the second disc, this is a good and thorough retrospective of Mariah in her prime.
Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi
