Mariah Carey

We gave it a B+

Decry it as a crass fourth-quarter repackaging stunt, but then go out and pick up Mariah Carey’s The Emancipation of Mimi: Ultra Platinum Edition (with four additional songs), which actually improves on the original. For one, it’s the only place to pick up the new chart-climbing ballad ”Don’t Forget About Us,” plus it’s got the clubby silk-meets-sandpaper remix of ”We Belong Together.” There’s also a special edition available with a bonus DVD. With just four music videos, it’s skimpy, but the two over-the-top clips featuring Eric Roberts as a sleazy sugar daddy make up for it.
